Fun often Free Family Activities Abound!

There is always something going on in and around your neighborhood-take your kids out and enjoy. Parks, playgrounds, hiking trails, local historical markers...
My family often goes to the local Farmer's Market (entry is free and the petting zoo and kiddy rides are cheap) Check the local paper for Festivals, Parades and Fairs. My kids love being outdoors and seeing the sights. I love taking them to free events that are colorful, musical and cultural. Many festivals offer free entry and you can pack your own snacks and water bottle to avoid spending money on junk food booths. Festivals and Fairs provide cultural or theme-specific education, free samples, giveaways, kid craft tables and much more! Weekly, I search the local paper,, flyers at the local market and banners hanging across the neighborhoods streets for fun, kid-friendly events. It's just as easy packing up a bag, the kids, getting them in & out of carseats, etc as it is to keep them occupied and unbored at home-plus a day out usually means a good nap later!
**It's Holiday time-drive around and see xmas lights, many parks & malls have special xmas light decorations or tree-lightings or Snow Days-FREE!
