Family activities on a budget:

2. Beach activities
If you’re looking to have fun with your family on a tight budget, it’s well worth visiting your nearest beach. Even if you visit in winter you’ll be able to build creative sandcastles and to try and build a fort with your children out of pieces of driftwood which may have washed up on your beach. Another fun game to play on the beach is hangman, simply use a skinny stick to draw your lines in the sand.
3. Family picnic in the park
If you’re keen on making memories with your family which will last a lifetime, it’s well worth packing a picnic basket with food which you’ve prepared at home. If you like the idea of spending a whole afternoon at your local park, you may want to pack a ball of some sort as well as a frisbee and your family’s favorite board game.
4. Camping in your backyard
If your budget won’t allow you to vacation out of your home city, it’s well worth pitching a tent in your backyard, which will still allow your family to enjoy the experience of a family camping trip. While still being able to enjoy the comforts of home. Such as warm hot showers, a modern kitchen and easy access to all of your clothes.
Camping in your backyard is also a great idea if your children are too young for an actual camping trip in the great outdoors.
5. Visit all of the museums in your city
Chances are that the average tourist to your city would’ve visited more local museums than your family has. So why not pretend to be visiting tourists for the day and touring as many kid-friendly museums, that you can find. Some cities even offer interactive museums, which encourage guests to interact with high tech exhibitions.
6. Use public transport to explore a part of your city, which your kids have never visited
Young children may find getting to ride a train, bus or ferry a lot of fun, so if you usually use a car to get your family from a to b, it’s well worth picking a part of the city, which your kids haven’t had a chance to explore and planning an epic day trip to your chosen area. As an example, you may want to pick an area which boasts a well-equipped children’s playground! Your kids may even want to pack their own backpacks for their adventure.
So if you’ve been searching for fun-filled family adventures on a budget, there’s no need to look any further for inspiration.
