    Default Cheap Thrills- Entertaining Kids during the summer

    With summer here, what is one way you keep yourself or your kids
    entertained cheaply, or even free?

    One thing we just did was invest $1 at the dollar store into a frisbee.
    We took it to the beach with us yesterday, and played with it on land &
    in the water, and then later that evening, we took it to the park, and
    played frisbee for almost an hour while waiting for the fireworks to
    start!


    Now only was it cheap, it was also fun, and got us all running around
    and excersizing!

    Sidewalk chalk and bubbles are a big hit at our house. My kids love to
    decorate the drive way, stepping stones, walkways, etc. I love all
    the art work and leave it until the rain washes it away.

    I fill up the small little plastic wading pool so the kids can cool off in it.
    We also sit with our feet in it to cool oursleves off too. The kids enjoy using
    the water in it to fill up their water guns too lol.

    Does anyone have a cheap recipe for bubbles? We go through them like
    wildfire and I'm going broke buying the bottles...even at the dollar store.
    I know there are different recipes and one uses glycerin but I think there
    are some that don't. Thanks!

    I just use dish soap and water. You add in about a table spoon of dish
    soap after the water, cap the lid, shake it, then try to blow a bubble.
    If they pop too easily, add some more soap.
