My buddy Tracy has her weekly Frugal Family Fun For Less post for us today. This week she has a list of FREE and cheap family fun around town.
I can’t believe it’s September already! As you guys know, I am scheduled to the max with family activities right now and we really can’t manage any more…but hopefully your schedules are a little less jam-packed than mine. Check out the list and see if there is anything you’d like to add to the family schedule!

My buddy Tracy has her weekly Frugal Family Fun For Less post for us today. This week she put together a list of ideas for almost completely free family fun.
Many of these ideas are pretty basic but if you guys are anything like me, then you can sometimes get stuck in a routine with activities and it gets hard to think outside that box. This list may help you to break out of your routine and do something fun and different with the kiddos…so go check it out!

My buddy Tracy has her weekly Frugal Family Fun For Less post for us today. This week she has some ideas for a family reading night.
What a great idea. My oldest son loves to read but my little guy hasn’t quite mastered reading yet. They worked on sight words in kindergarten and he did OK. I think reading comprehension is going to be tough for him so I am always looking for ways to incorporate more skills into his day.
Head over and check out Tracy’s ideas.

I know free is my favorite price and anything to get the boys out of the house is a good thing in my book. Check it out and hopefully you’ll see something that strikes your fancy.

My buddy Tracy has her weekly Frugal Family Fun For Less post for us today. This week she has a fun idea for a glow party or glow dance party.
If you haven’t tried something like this before, it really could be a great way to keep the kiddos occupied for an hour or two. I like the idea of watching the clearance bins at your favorite stores to pick up glow items super cheaply, then saving them for one big fun party. Sounds perfect for a rainy afternoon or evening in particular!

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!

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!
