    Default Family Activities

    This year I am creating 2 jars: one labelled 'free', the other '$'. In the jars I am putting ideas for family activities.

    I am in SE Melb outer suburbs.

    What ideas do you have?

    What a cool concept!

    For free you could have things like a board game night, trip to the beach, going to the markets or a park.

    Good idea, I think I may do the same:

    free: museum, park, beach, movie night, arts and crafts day, board games

    money: day at the movies with treats, pool, water park/theme park, play gym, coffee/ lunch date

    Also check out Groupon for good deals on different kids activities.
    The Escape room in Melb looks interesting for bigger kids.
