Looking for something fun, and cheap, to do with the kiddos this weekend? Head on over to Lowe's for a Build and Learn Workshop. Sign up here. Best part: FREE!!!
My oldest son and I tried out the workshop two weeks ago. He loved it! He built a pirate ship. The kits are simple to use. They have kid-size tools for use. Once he was finished with his kit, he recieved a certificate and patch for the kit he made.
They even give the kids little Lowe's aprons with nametags! How fun!!
Another idea for Frugal Fun:
Do you have a university near by? As a college student and mom, I have an unfair advantage of actually knowing what goes on at the university where we live. Trust me, before, I had not a clue. Most universities offer family activities as well. Check their website to find out.
Examples of activities might include:
**Family fun days
**museums, exhibits, planetariums (most universities have these, and they are usually free or minimally priced)
Don't limit yourself in your thinking of frugal fun. You may just be suprised at the fun you'll have!
What frugal activities does your family enjoy?
