What about scrapbooking? Most stores that specialize in scrapbooking
have night “crops” or “scraps” for a low cost or free. You bring in
your stuff, sit down, and spend the evening making scrap book pages.
You have to pay for anything like stickers, paper, or embelishments
you use, but they let you use things like rulers, siccsors, paper
punchs, etc, for free.
Do you guys have a Coldstone Creamery near you? You guys could go
and make your own ice cream up before going to crop, or afterwards.
Maybe check with local schools for choir concerts or plays, and go
see a show together. They’ll be much cheaper than going to a
professional show, and they can be very good (or funny!).
Find a beauty school near you, and have everyone go in to get a
facial. Beauty schools are much cheaper than a regular salon, and
facials cna be so very relaxing. you can usually get it done for
around $10. The students do the work, but they are 2nd year
students, and are always supervised.
If no one is pregnant, or once they are no-longer pregant, you guys
could all go ice skating at an arena, followed up by hot cocoa or
coffee somewhere. You could also try it with roller skating instead
of ice skating.
As a busy mom of 3, I would recommend maybe making it a once a month
event for the moms to get out of the house, kid free, to do
something together. It doesn’t have to be big and fancy- just being
kid free for an evening can be relaxing.
Me and some of my non-mom friends used to get together every
Thursday to make dinner together (or get take out), and watch the
Thursday night shows like Friends together. We called it Friends
We would each contribute towards dinner, then sit around watching tv
and laughing together. it was sooo relaxing for me to be out of the
house and away from the kids like that each week. and, if we were
broke, i just used something from the pantry to contribute towards
