How do we keep the young ones entertained, away from their screens and out the house? Well, here are a few things you can do with the kids, but on a budget. 

The Kids Want To Have Fun Too But On A Budget

Staying Indoors On A Budget

Bake With The Little Ones

Baking is really fun and kids don’t mind getting their hands dirty, especially if it’s something they can eat afterwards. Also, in case you didn’t know, baking is said to have many benefits for the little ones such as improving their mathematical skills because they will be dealing with measurements. It is also said to boost their reading skills, because that recipe book won’t read itself, now will it? In addition, it helps you and your kids connect. Lastly the best benefits to any baking guru, is eating the cake batter, now that’s amazing.

Netflix And Popcorn

Netflix has a lot of shows to look forward to. Sometimes all a kid needs is to sit back, watch movies at home and snack on some homemade popcorn. This is the perfect way to spend time with your little ones. Visit Pinterest and search for endless ideas on how to be creative with movie nights at home. Watching movies together is also said to strengthen family bonds.

Make Your Own Clothes Or Hand-painted T-shirts

Personally, I used to enjoy making clothes for my dolls and spending time crocheting with my grandmother. Which is why I turned out to be a creative. So if your kids are really passionate about making clothes and making matching painted t-shirts, do it! Buy some DIY items and get creative. This teaches kids how to work together with others and helps unleash their creative instinct.
