School is nearly over and it has me thinking about how I will keep two boys entertained all summer on a budget. We have some trips planned and will use our pool but there is always some downtime during the week (and on rainy days) so I like to have some go-to-activities I can use with a bit of planning ahead.
The key to kids happiness (and mommy’s sanity) is to have a plan. My goal is to have 2-3 planned activities with their friends each week, which leaves us with a few free days left over to see where the day takes us. I like to keep the activities during the week cheap or free so we can budget in the expensive activities like fairs, zoos and amusement parks when we are with daddy (he likes to have fun too you know!)
Here’s a list of some of my go-to-activities and resources. You might have to do a little research in your area to customize this list but many of my links are national. Read the rest of my guest post on Label Daddy
