Tips To Plan A No Spend Weekend For Kids
Look for free events at the park.
If you have a local park, they might off free music or movies there occasionally so it’s a good idea to see if your town offers something like that. These activities can be really fun and cost nothing at all!
Have a family movie night. This is a go-to classic way to enjoy a no spend weekend for kids. Everybody will have fun picking out a movie to contribute for your movie marathon. For added fun, set up a fort in the living room to watch from!
Have a home spa day. You know all those lotion/spa kits you get for Christmas or the store when they’re on a great deal? Time to put them to use! Have a home spa day and get everyone involved. Everyone needs a little rest and relaxation now and then – why not enjoy it together?
Go on a scavenger hunt.
Scavenger hunts are a creative and fun way to spend your no spend weekend. For a fun effect, burn the edges of a piece of paper, crumple it up for effect, and make a “treasure map”!
Look at the stars!
When’s the last time you really had time to sit down and enjoy the stars? Get the family outside one night for a special viewing of stars. Bonus if you are able to do this during a meteor shower! If you have a trampoline, go lay on the trampoline at night and snuggle and watch the stars together. The quality time is worth far more than any activity you could pay for!
