Things To Do With Your Kids This Summer That Won’t Break The Bank

After a year of a world pandemic everyone seems to be hurting financially but this doesn’t mean you can’t do anything with your family! The summer is a great time for the kids to experience nature – being in the great outdoors is so good for the growing brain, not to mention for great mental health.

Inexpensive Family Fun Ideas:

Are you vaccinated or partially vaccinated? If you live in the state of NJ you can get into all state parks in NJ for FREE. Here is the link: https://www.nj.gov/dep/vaxandvisit/ Just make sure you travel with your vaccination card and drivers license.

  • Pack lunches and explore the state parks in your area – especially if you have any near the beach! Some have lakes and some have the ocean! My favorite State Park in NJ is Island Beach by Seaside!
  • High Point State Park has plenty of picnic tables as well as a fantastic lake with beach.

  • Research a “Waterfront Park” in your area for a beautiful water view for a family picnic and walk
  • Hiking
  • Geocaching

REASEARCH YOUR LOCAL ARBORETUMS AND BOTANICALS GARDEN

  • Some have a picnic table for enjoying the weather while enjoying an inexpensive lunch with your family.
  • Right now the Laurelwood Arboretum in Wayne, NJ has sculptures along the path!

ONCE A WEEK, TRAVEL TO AN ICE CREAM PALOR/ DAIRY CREAMERY THAT YOU HAVE NEVER VISITED BEFORE!

  • Because who doesn’t like ice cream???!
