Financial well-being March 25, 2020 By
Last Summer, my friend and co-worker, Lisa Crawford, shared an article called Budget Friendly Summer. To help us get through this time of social distancing, I thought I would re-share some of her ideas below and add a few of my own!
- Enjoy a “flick” the old-school way – If you think drive-in movies are a thing-of-the-past, then go old school by using a projector and hanging a white sheet in your backyard to watch a movie under the stars. If you don't have a projector, turn your living room into a fun movie theater!
- Take a family walk or play outside – Walk or play outside for 30 minutes as a family and share funny stories about each other. Laughter combined with exercise is good for the soul.
- Schedule a family board game tournament – Dust off the board games and playing cards in your game closet for a family tournament. Have fun with all age levels by battling it out!
- Have a picnic – Grab an old blanket and some finger foods for a picnic in the yard.
- Cook with the kids – Bring your kiddos into the kitchen and have them help make a meal. There is no time like the present to teach children how to become "mini chefs!" They can learn how to measure and mix ingredients and time the food.
- Change Scavenger Hunt – Bring your kiddos into the kitchen and have them help make a meal. There is no time like the present to teach children how to become "mini chefs!" They can learn how to measure and mix ingredients and time the food.
- Sanitize the House - Have children help with wiping down door knobs, switches, counters, etc. The child who does the best or the most sanitizing in a day gets to pick a family fun game that everyone will play for 30 minutes.
We hope these fun and free activities will bring memory-filled blessings that will last a lifetime.
