There are many activities in or around your city that you probably know all the tourists
go to, but when was the last time you went? Just because you have been there many
times before along with your children doesn’t mean they wouldn’t love to go again (and
again and again).
Take a few days during the summer break to visit attractions and destinations that you
haven’t been to in awhile. If you know that the place is going to be crowded on the
weekend or in the afternoons go on a weekday morning. The added benefit of being a
local and going to a tourist destination is that you know the ins and outs and the tricks to
get the most out of your day.
Water parks are always popular and tend to fill up around and after lunch time. Try and
go when the park first opens to beat the crowds. If you leave before lunch time, you can
save money by eating at home and get out of the hot midday sun.
Going to your local zoo is an all day event. Pack a picnic lunch and if you aren’t able to
bring it into the park get a hand stamp and leave for awhile to eat. Consider buying a
season’s pass too. Most times a pass will pay for itself in less than three visits. If you
don’t want to spend all day at the zoo, break it up into 2-3 hour chunks and keep coming
Go to your local visitor’s center and pick up the free brochures that are available there.
You might find some excursions you didn’t know about or had forgotten existed. The
staff at the visitor’s center usually have coupons for free or discounted admission too.

Making a Kite
Flying a kite is good exercise and a lot of fun (even if you don’t get the kite up in the air).
Instead of going out and buying a kite, make one instead. You will need fabric (or very
strong paper), strong glue, two wooden dowels and string.
To begin, lay the two dowels in a cross position and use some of the string to lash the
sticks together into that position. You will do this by weaving the string in and out of the
dowels. Once the dowels are secure, put glue on the string and leave it to dry. Once this
is done you should have a strong frame for your kite. Making a Kite
