We’ve been enjoying our summer so far with lots of fun activities. We love finding ways to have fun without breaking the bank. Here are some of our favorites:
Beach – the beach is always a great budget choice if you plan right. For me that means inviting along my friends who plan right. I’m notorious for arriving at the beach or playground without any snacks or drinks. I’m the one with the pocketknife and first aid kit though.
Playground play dates. We found a fantastic playground we hadn’t been to before with zip lines and really tough climbing obstacles. I don’t see this one getting boring anytime soon.
Pool – Our local outdoor pool has free open swim times twice a day. We usually book some lessons there and organize it so that after the lesson we can have a picnic lunch and then do the open swim.
On rainy days go bowling. Summer came early here and we had hot sunny beach days in May and then “Junuary” hit and it was chilly again. Now it’s July and we’ve been having a monsoon. Register at your local bowling alley and take advantage of daily free games for kids.
Outdoor movies. Look for free movie showings at outdoor malls. They played The Princess Bride here on Saturday, one of my favorites.
Groupon – I’ve found some great local activities for sale on Groupon. We’re waiting for a great day to go do the UBC Botanical Garden Greenheart TreeWalk – a 310-meter-long tree top canopy walkway suspended from the trees.
At bath time we can see how much fun we’ve had that day by counting the bumps, bruises and scrapes. After drying off we treat all the ouchies with Boiron’s Arnicare Cream or Arnicare Gel. Arnicare products are made from Arnica, a plant known for its medicinal properties.
