For this week’s Frugal Family Fun post, Tracy has some cute camping ideas and a craft. You can “camp” in the living room with the kiddos, or actually grab your tent and do some fun outdoor exploring as a family!
I always loved to build forts in the living room when I was a kid…I might have to encourage the boys to give it a try soon (with some supervision, of course! ).

Tracy has our weekly Frugal Family Fun for Less post for us this afternoon. Since it is almost the end of the month, she has put together her list of free and cheap activities during the month of July. There are some fun activities available at places like Michael’s, Lowe’s, Home Depot, and Lakeshore, so be sure to check out the list! If you are looking for something to occupy the kiddos during …this is definitely a way to kill a morning.
As always, you should be aware that some of these activities require a small purchase or that you sign up ahead of time…so be sure to check with your local store so that you know all of the requirements before you head out!

Be sure to check out my buddy Tracy’s Frugal Family Fun for Less post today. This week she has a list of some fun and free or cheap summer activities for kids that you may want to check out.
I am happy to know about the TD Summer Reading program for kids…that is a great way to motivate them to do some reading over the summer!

My buddy Tracy has a great idea for us for her Frugal Family Fun For Less post. Those of you with kiddos at home for the summer may want to give her “Summer Jar” idea a try…it certainly sounds like a great way to avoid complaints about boredom to me!
I am thinking my boys might like this idea too. Right now they are doing tons of swimming, but I am sure we will need some fun activity ideas for those rainy days they will need to spend indoors!

Movies are a great way to keep the kiddos occupied during the summer, but they can get really expensive. Check out Tracy’s list and you may be able to save a bundle next time you head to the theater!

It’s time for this week’s Frugal Family Fun For Less post. This week Tracy suggests that you plan a trip to your local Farmer’s Market for a fun way to spend a morning with the kiddos.
I know I’ve mentioned before how much I love the farmer’s market here in Chattanooga. You really can find some great prices on fresh items and it is a lot of fun just to walk around and browse!

My buddy Tracy has this week’s Frugal Family Fun for Less post for us today. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, she has put together a list of mother’s day deals and freebies, as well as a craft and a fun little recipe.
I don’t know about you guys, but I am hoping to do NOTHING for Mother’s day. I am so busy most of the time that a little break would be the best gift of all!
