Mommy Talk Tuesday (Free and Cheap Kids Activities)

Mommy Talk Tuesday is back! This week it is Free and Cheap Kids Activities.
This is a topic I am just getting to know. RC is just about 16 months now so we are just starting to get out and enjoy the free and cheap activities out there!

Playing Outside is, of course, the top free activity. Even on those hot and humid days you can try to get outside early or take a walk in the evening. I know RC loves to look around at everything. If it has been really hot, he takes a walk around our apartment building and through the back yard with my hubby in the evening.

To go along with playing outside, sidewalk chalk and bubbles are inexpensive ideas to keep your little one occupied.

An activity we enjoy is going to Chick Fil A to play. RC loves the play area, I get to sit in the AC and talk with my friends and then we usually splurge and get lunch. We do this about once to twice a month with MOMS Club.

Check out the library. They typically have programs all summer long for kids of all ages. We just signed RC for the summer reading program where he can earn a little prize for having books read to him! For older kids they earn the prize for reading the books themselves!

Many stores have programs that are free or very cheap for your little one to do. Home Depot is one of those. Unfortunately RC isn't old enough, but when he is, we will be there joining in on the fun! Michaels or Hobby Lobby will sometimes have craft demos that your child can take part in as well.

What are your favorite free or cheap kids activities?
