20 Fun & {Mostly} Free Summer Activities for Kids

By Devan McGuinness |

I am declaring this summer the “SUMMER OF ALL THINGS AWESOME” for us this year. It’s the last year before I have a child in full time school (and Raru will be going back part-time) and I they are all old enough now where they will really start forming the memories.

While we really want to have fun, I will admit I don’t want to spend a whole lot of money just to spend time with each each other and have fun. I would love to be able to have “extra fun” more than once a month, which if it wan’t {mostly} free, we may not be able to do.

Good news — there are a lot of ways to have fun this summer with the kids that really are fun, educational and {mostly} free. Turns out, you don’t have to limit the fun to things you have to save up for and there are a large list of ways to have fun for cheap this summer.

Collect and Dry Flowers

Take a walk with your kids and be on the lookout for wild flowers. It's fun to collect flowers from all around. You can dry them out by hanging them upside down or press them in a heavy book.
