If times have been better financially and you're staring spring in the face with a house full of kids wondering what on earth you're going to do with them on your days off, don't worry. There are plenty of things you can do that don't have to break the bank and your kids will have a great time. Here are some fun family outdoor activities to get you started.

Local Fun

Check your city newspaper for listings of local happenings. Most newspapers have a section dedicated at least one day a week that announces all of the events, upcoming fairs, festivals, concerts, shows, and lectures.

During spring or summer months, many cities have free "movies in the park" or "free concerts in the park". These are usually family activities and attract lots of kids. Even if your little guys don't want to listen to a concert, they will find other kids to play with and have a great time.

Be sure to do a search online for your city too. Sometimes your newspaper will miss an event. By knowing different sites online that also announces events, you will be sure not to miss anything.


No. Not adult clubs. Think about the interests your kids have or maybe a new subject you would like to interest your kids in. How about rock collecting? Coin collecting? Stamp collecting? Archery? Snorkeling? Volleyball? Bet there's a club for it. By getting your kids interested in something new they will not only learn but have a great time.

Outdoor Fun

With a little thinking, you'll never run out of things to do outside.

Bubbles - You can make some monster bubbles if you get the right recipe. Just look on line and you'll easily find how to do this. With a big bucket, the bubble mixture, and a few creative "bubble tools" you can make ginormous bubbles.
