Frugal Fun for the Summer Break

Frugal activity ideas for the Summer Break
Frugal summer themed activities for kids

It’s not been the brightest of starts to our Summer this year. The first day lashed with rain and the second was dominated by strong winds. But we are hopeful that the weather will improve for the long school summer holidays (9 weeks!!).  Just in case it doesn’t though, I have been busy preparing a list of activity ideas that don’t cost a fortune; to help keep the kids busy and myself sane! And the last two weeks on the Frugal Family linky have been a great source of inspiration.

Apologies for not having a post-up last week, but as you can see I have been busy working on our new home over here at Crafty Kids at Home. I hope you’ll have a look around after linking up.
