Frugal Friday: Frugal Fun

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

**Seasonal/holiday activities

**homecoming parades

**museums, exhibits, planetariums (most universities have these, and they are usually free or minimally priced)

**sporting events

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?
