The Kids Want To Have Fun Too But On A Budget


So, how does one succeed when trying to keep the young ones entertained, away from their screens, away from finishing all the snack from the pantry and entirely away from the house. We want all of that to  be achieved with just a little budget. Here are a few things you can do together with the kids:

The Kids Want To Have Fun Too But On A Budget

Staying Indoors On A Budget

Bake With The Little Ones

Baking is really fun and we know that kids don’t mind getting their hands dirty, especially if it’s something they will eat afterwards. Also in case you didn’t know baking is said to have many benefits for the little ones and they will surely enjoy it because it also improves their mathematical skill because they will be dealing with measurements. It is also said to boost their reading skills, because that recipe book won’t read itself now will it? In addition it helps you and your kids to connect. Lastly the best benefits of any baking guru, is eating the cake dough, now that’s amazing.

Netflix and Pop Corns

Netflix has a lot of shows to look forward to. Sometimes all a kid needs to chill back and watch movies at home and snack on some homemade pop corns. And this is the perfect way to spend time with your little ones. And you can be creative with this one, visit Pinterest and search for how to be creative with movie nights at home. And you will get endless ideas. Watching movies together is also said to strengthen family bonds.

Go To The Zoo

This is one of the most affordable ways to take the kids out without breaking into a bank or selling your arm. And to tell you the truth kids seem to really enjoy it, even adults enjoy it so much. So more fun for all. You can either go to Bokkie Park or go to The Johannesburg Zoo.

Make Your Own Clothes Hand-painted T-shirts

I know for me personally I used to enjoy particularly making clothes for my dolls, and spending time crocheting with my grandmother is part of the reason I believe I’m still creative to this day. So, if you see that your kid is really passionate about making clothes and making matching painted t-shirts. Do it! Buy some DIY items and get creative you will all appreciate it as a family, this is also said to build team work and teaches kids how to work together with others it also helps unleash their creative instinct.
