9 Enjoyable Ways to Keep the Kids Busy Without Spending A Fortune

No matter the age of your children finding productive and budget-friendly things to do can be quite challenging. Below are 9 ways (that won’t cost a fortune) you can use on any day of the week to ensure your kids (or you) don’t go stir crazy.

Indoor Camp Out

What kid doesn’t love to pretend play and make their dreams come true? What they would love even more is actually bringing their imagination to life. Bringing the camping inside is just the fun they may be looking for.

For this activity you will need a tent, a real one will do or one made from sheets is good too. Pretend to light a fire and eat freeze-dried foods. You could also make indoor s’mores very easily at your stove or in your microwave. Be sure to get the sleeping bags and ghost stories ready for a fun night under the ‘stars’.

Indoor Obstacle Course

Sometimes it’s just simply too cold or rainy to get out of the house. Bad weather or not kids need to be able to have the space to release all of the energy they have.  Creating an obstacle course in your home is fun for everyone.

Try making the string laser course like you see in the movies for your kids. All you really will need is lots of string to create the course and then your kids can collect the objects you already have at home and put them in baskets at either end of the course.

Give Them Lots of Coloring Room

Kids Coloring

Kids of all ages enjoy coloring but depending on the age the activity can go pretty quickly before they are bored again. A way to switch up just plain old coloring is to buy a big roll of plain white wrapping paper. Use the wrapping paper and spread it out anywhere like the floor or across a table. This can be really cool for kids because they can just keep pulling the paper whenever they need more space to draw.

Get Crafty

There is nothing like a bit of DIY that gets kids excited! Learning how to make their own things will also give them a better appreciation for their belonging as well as the costs of things. Make sure you pick something that is useful but also achievable for a few age groups. You could try making animal masks or maybe a learn how to make a pencil case for the coming school term!

Have A BBQ With Friends

barbecue grill

Your kids want to be social and are usually begging to go hang out with their friends. Take this as an opportunity to throw a potluck BBQ. Tell everyone you invite to bring the sides and drinks and you as the host will be responsible for grilling.

Your kids having their friends around will keep them busy. With the kids so hyped up be sure to tell them beforehand the dangers of being near an outdoor grill and take the proper precautions regarding gas smoker safety.

A Day of Volunteering

An awesome way to give kids some perspective on how others live is to have them give back in some capacity. It teaches kids to have empathy and care for others around them as well as have gratitude for what they have in life.

There are many ways to give back that kids may be able to participate in. Some great places to start volunteering are your local soup kitchen, animal shelters, or spending the day cleaning up trash at your local park.

In Need of A Furry Friend?

If you can’t commit to an animal year round you can try pet sitting over the holidays. This can also help you decide whether you and the family are ready to get your own yet. It could be just a phrase and you end up doing all the work. They are a few places you can look for pets to care for or if your not keen a getting a puppy you can look at house sitting sites which also offer animal care.

Sensory Bins

Young toddlers to school ages children love to play with sensory bins. Sensory bins can be fairly messy so be sure to work on a sheet or outdoors where it is okay for you and the kids to get a little dirty. Make shimmer snow made from baking soda and glitter. Try a colored rice bin with just plain rice and food color. If you want to avoid the mess altogether fill a bin with cotton balls and simply add kitchen utensils and measuring cups and the kids will have a blast.

Make Your Own T-Shirts

Let’s be real, kids will practically draw all over the house if you let them. Foster their creativity skills and design your own t-shirts. It doesn’t take much to get this done and can be made on new or old shirts.

Use any type of art medium your child likes such as crayons, markers, or even let them paint on their shirt. Make sure to hand wash and dry your shirts so that your kids can cherish their creations for years to come.

With a little creativity and planning it easy to keep the kids busy! Once you have built up a repertoire of activities you will have then away from the TV and enjoying themselves all holidays!

The Originals Complete Series Review

The Originals Series

The Originals has to be one of my favorite vampire series ever. I loved it when it came out in 1993, and all these years later, it still holds a special place in my heart.

The Originals is a spin-off of the Vampire Diaries. It is thrilling, sexy and dramatic as can be. The scene is set in New Orleans where the original family returns to reclaim their city.
The first season was addictive; compelling and utterly action packed. The Klaus siblings are likable and it made it easy to get hooked on the series, leaving you wanting more.
Luckily, there are 5  awesome seasons that still leave me wanting more. Getting all 5 seasons in one set is a perfect way to get our vampire fix without the frustration of waiting for more!

If you need a gift idea for a vampire fan, I think that grabbing The Originals: The Complete Season is the ultimate gift. All 92 episodes in one DVD set retails for about $90. It will be one of those gifts that the recipient can’t wait to feast on! 

If you were a fan of The Originals I would love to reminisce with you for a moment! Tell me who was your favorite character and of course, what was your favorite episode?

How the Grinch Stole Christmas – Ultimate Edition

How the Grinch Stole Christmas - Ultimate Edition

Every year since I was a little girl, How the Grinch Stole Christmas has been an art of my family tradition. As a child, my family would mark the calendar, in the pre DVR days and make it an event with snacks and cozy pajamas. We made certain we never missed it. Now that I am a mom, I can continue the tradition with my family without having to stop our busy lives for a tv viewing with the Ultimate Edition of How the Grinch Stole Christmas on DVD and Blu-Ray.

In this edition, you get the classic tale that has delighted kids for generations. I love that it has a Blu Ray Disc as well as a DVD and a digital copy for watching anywhere, anytime. While 3 ways to watch is pretty impressive, what is even better is that the fun of the Grinch doesn’t end with How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Also in this edition, you can enjoy The Grinch Grinches the Cat in the Hat and Halloween is Grinch Night, for family fun that goes on and on.

I think the combo pack of How the Grinch Stole Christmas: The Ultimate Edition would make an awesome family gift this holiday season. It is a must-have holiday film for many families and everyone will love the 2 additional cartoons with the Grinch! I love that we get to add to our Christmas and Halloween cartoon collections with one combo pack! 

Has your family had a Grinch viewing yet this year? I would love to hear about your family traditions such as your favorite snacks to watch during the cartoon, or any other ways you make the event special with your kids! My family gets into our comfiest pajamas and has a special snack and we make it an evening with classics like How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Frosty the Snowman. It is one of our favorite ways to build excitement for Christmas!

If you are wanting more of the Grinch, make sure to grab this combo pack on Amazon for 3 ways to watch 3 Grinchy cartoons just in time for a GrinchMAS!

Family Game Night with Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy on PS4

Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy

As the weather gets colder, we are spending more time indoors, so I am always looking for ways to keep the boys engaged, playing and learning.  Winter is the perfect time to gather the family and engage in a game night!

We got a chance to try out a 2 in 1 game that was so much fun! Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy on PS4 is perfect for family game night with the boys because it gives everyone a chance to test their knowledge while engaging in a friendly competition of America’s Greatest Game Shows!

I love that you can compete online or offline with friends and family, or with new players online. That adds a lot of fun and new challenges to the game. In the Wheel of Fortune game, you can play for super fun prizes, just like the show, which is really fun! In Jeopardy, you can show what you know in three fun modes; career, family and quick mode.

I love sharing these classic games in a fun and modern way with my boys. It is really cool to experience a part of my childhood again through the eyes of my boys.

The games have awesome HD graphics for a completely realistic experience! The Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy game makes a great gift option for families this holiday season. It has brought our family a lot of enjoyment so I know your family will have fun showing what you know too. Retailing at under $40, this is a great way to play together when it is too cold to head outside!
