In this economy it is hard to be able to go out and do something fun with the kids! I am constantly looking for free things to do with my kids.
When If we go out to dinner it normally costs us at least $25.00 and that is even after coupons that I try to find or kids eat free days! I also find eating out to be stressful with the kiddos. We try to pick off-peak hours to go eat, but kids can only sit still for so long!
With my family recently losing an income I am looking even harder for free or cheap activities to do as a family! We try to do a Stay At Home Family Fun Night a couple of times a month! We have a Netflix account that we use a ton!! If I can’t get a new movie quick enough I check out our local Redbox Movie Rental. ( I receive a text the first Monday of the month with a free rental code good for that day only!)
Renting movies from Redbox are only a $1.06 after tax! This week when I rented a family movie I received a bonus offer to rent a 2nd movie for only $.50!! Family movie and grown up movie for only $1.59. We had a fun family night followed by an impromptu Stay At Home Date Night!
For family fun night we always eat dinner on the living room floor! My son loves having a “picnic style” dinner! We have meals as simple as sandwiches or we make a homemade pizza! This week we had a homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza!
Movie Rental: $1.06
Homemade Buffalo Chicken Pizza approximately $3.75
Spending Time as a family: PRICELESS!!
What kind of fun family events do you do for free or cheap?
