20 Inexpensive & Fun Family Time Ideas


Hi everyone! It is so important for us to spend time together as a family these days. I wanted to remind you that family time doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, but it is so important. Your kids will never forget these times, you are making memories with your kids every single day. We need to choose to make those memories great for our kids!

I think that every family should have a special “Family Time” set aside and it can be whenever works best for your family. It doesn’t have to be every week, it could maybe even be once or twice a month. What would be super fun for the kids is to have them involved in deciding what your going to do for family time. You could come up with a Bucket List of things that you want to do together and check them off as you go or have it be a different child’s turn to choose each time. Whatever works for your family!

To get you started, I have come up with a list of 20 fun and inexpensive ideas:

And the winners are……

Hi everyone! You may remember that a week ago today, I posted about the blog being 1 year old and I was doing a giveaway to celebrate. Well, today is the day we did the drawing! Just so you know, for everyone who was already signed up for my weekly email newsletter, I automatically put your name in once and for those who signed up and/or commented that you wanted to be in the drawing I put your names in as well. Those who signed up for the newsletter got an extra entry.

This afternoon, my kids and I held the drawing. I wrote all the names on paper and folded them up and put them into a basket. I let my kids draw the names out for each prize.

S’mores on a Stick Recipe

This past weekend, we were so excited to get snow! Living in South Carolina, we don’t get much snow and so this was a huge deal! The kids were up and headed outside by 8am and by about 9am we had 4 snowmen in our front yard! After they came inside, Popstar decided it was time for a treat. So I figured a snow day was the perfect time to try a new recipe. She loves to cook and her grandmother had gotten her this cookbook for Christmas:


So I told her to look through her cookbook and find something that we had all the ingredients for to make. She came up with S’mores on a Stick. They turned out to be so delicious, I was just wishing that we’d had some hot chocolate to go with them!
