20 Affordable Summer Activities for Children

Now that summer is here, a whole new list of activities is available to entertain the kiddos. Summer is great for supplying a long list of ways to have fun spending little to no money. If the budget allows, you can certainly go to an amusement park or maybe a longer beach trip. However, most of the time you probably need some fun and affordable summer activities while you’re in debt management.

List of Affordable Summer Activities

Try some of these activities this summer!

  1. Picnic at the Park
  2. Community Pool
  3. Watch a movie outside
  4. Star gazing
  5. Visit the local farmers market
  6. Water table
  7. Hike
  8. Fly kites
  9. Bird watch
  10. Wagon rides
  11. Water gun fight
  12. Outdoor concerts & festivals
  13. Go yard saling
  14. Sports! Volleyball, bad minton, soccer, basketball, field hockey, ultimate frisbee…
  15. Scavenger hunt
  16. Start a roadside lemonade or vegetable stand
  17. Go on a photoshoot
  18. Camp in the backyard
  19. Wash the car (it’ll be fun for kids to help and get wet!)
  20. Go for ice cream frozen ice- look for coupons to save

If you really want to push or maybe torture your kids, there are some more educational activities you can do. Book or movie reviews can keep kids engaged and learning. It won’t feel as tedious if the topic is their choice and the report or review is simple. Nature can also be a great teacher. Help your kids identify plants, trees and other wildlife. All of this can be done for free with a library card and/or the Internet.

Working in some financial literacy during summer is another great idea. This is typically a subject schools rely on parents to cover. If you have older kids, they might be earning a paycheck and need guidance. Teaching them to budget and set financial goals can be instrumental in their ability to do so as an adult. Younger children can play store, house or other games to learn about money in a playful way.

If you’re struggling to pay off debt, ACCC can help. Schedule a free credit counseling session with us today.
