As fall is now upon us, it is the perfect time to spend time with your families outside. On October 5, the world celebrates frugal fun day! Who better to spend this day with than your family. Here are 10 ways to get out of your house on a frugal fun day! (And any other day for that matter!)
- Take a Stroll Downtown. If you live anywhere near a nice downtown area, I would suggest taking your family and just enjoying a few hours walking the streets of your downtown. You will be surprised at how many gems you find on your walk.
- Go to a Fall Festival. Many churches and cities have fall festivals with hayrides, s’mores and more.
- Go to the Park. Though it may seem simple, a day at the park may be the most fun thing in the world. Bring a picnic and enjoy the cool fall weather.
- Go Apple Picking. Apple picking is a relatively inexpensive way to spend a day all together. Plus, a lot of orchards offer hayrides and other fall fun activities for your family to enjoy.
- Go to a Farmer’s Market. Farmer’s Markets hold so many treasures. You can find fresh food, homemade gifts, gorgeous plants, and so much more. Farmer’s Markets are a great way to spend time with your family.
- Go Thrifting. Visiting a thrift store is some of the most fun you will ever have with your kids. Let each kid pick out 1 or 2 things to bring home as treasures from your adventure.
- Go on a Hike. Whether your hike is in the mountains or just in the city somewhere, a hike is a great way to get your whole family outside. Bonus, a hike can also count as a fun field trip, especially if you’re studying botany, visiting a historic site, etc. for your hike.
- Go to the Zoo. Many zoos have fall festivals that you can enjoy with your kids. The zoo is also a great way to sneak a school day in. :)
- Visit a New Restaurant. Many restaurants have a fun fall seasonal menu items that are always worth a try. A lot of cities have fall food festivals where you are able to experience the restaurant for cheaper.
- Go Geocaching. Geocaching is a fun scavenger hunt held all around the world. People will hide little gifts/papers and the geocacher has to use the geocaching app to follow the clues to find the prize. For more information on geocaching click here.
Now that you have plenty of things to do, you really have no excuse to stay inside on October 5th. Post pictures of your Frugal Fun adventures with the hashtag. #TTDFrugalFun or tag us @TeachThemDiligently. Have Fun!
