“Mom, milk break is done this week at school, so I will need something to drink and 24 birthday treats to share with everyone because my birthday is in the summer. Why does my birthday have to be in the summer, anyway?” my 8-year-old daughter exclaimed.

I think she delivered all this “end of the school year” and “don’t forget my birthday” information in one breath.

“Sure, we can buy a snack for an early birthday party at school,” I replied.

“We can have milk breaks at home, too,” I added.

Some low cost summer activities for families

June 4, 2012

Here are a number of wonderful low cost summer activities for kids and families that help families keep their hard-earned money in their pockets.

With each of these ideas, you might fashion “what to do” boxes. Create two boxes - one for “outside” and one for “indoors” - containing index cards with activities written on them. Rotate who in the family gets to pick the card for that day. This is a great way to avoid activities that cost a lot of cash and a fun way to create a family plan.
