Three Cheap Ways to Entertain Your Family Over the Holiday Season

Whether it’s Spring break, Christmas break, Easter Break, or just a long weekend; it can be difficult for parents to keep their children and family entertained without spending their life savings.

Family House

Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way.

The first place to start is at home with craft activities. Find a space where you can easily clean up spills, such as the kitchen or the laundry, and host your own ‘Creation Party.

Use things like paint, markers, cardboard, and a big packet of LEGO from the Groupon Coupons page for Lakeside Collection to encourage your children (and yourself) to create whatever you want out of whatever materials you can find!

Once you’re done, don’t be afraid to host a ‘mock gallery’ in your backyard where your neighbors can come and enjoy your creations!

Speak With Your Tourist Bureau

Your city spends millions of dollars a year on providing entertainment to those visiting your town by way of cheap tickets and free entertainment. However, many residents don’t realize that they can take advantage of these benefits, too.

Head to your local tourist kiosk and ask about free or very cost effective entertainment currently happening in your area. Events from concerts, plays, and even galleries will be available for your enjoyment.

If you are looking for something closer to home, your council will be able to tell you about any planned festivals or cultural events which are happening nearby.

Join Social Groups

Search your preferred social media site for local parenting groups. These forums are great places to find information on how to entertain your family, including parent meetups where children play together to families who are looking to take advantage of bulk tickets for things like the movies by opening up the invitation to nearby families.

It may take a while to find a group which suits your parenting style, so don’t be afraid to join a few groups at a time while you find the right one for you.

If you are dreading the upcoming holidays because your bank account can’t handle the constant demand for entertainment, keep this list handy and remember that entertaining your family doesn’t have to cost money; it just needs a little creative thinking.
