10 Fun, Inexpensive Activities for Families

1.  attend a worship service
2.  attend a church potluck

1.  movie night at home
2.  board games

1.  keep a family journal
2.  family garden

1.  walking/hikes
2.  playing with and/or training the family pets

1.  make family Christmas cards.
2.  attending fireworks

I thought I'd limit myself to ten things, so many other options also came to mind.  If we worked at it for a while, we could probably come up with a list of thousands of things families could do together that did not require 'an arm and a leg'.

And, of course, the concept of 'inexpensive' will vary from family to family.  On one end of the scale, frugality in family activities might entail vacationing at Disneyland instead of a tour of Europe.  Others may be stretching things simply using gas to drive to a location where the family can hike or have a picnic.  Most families fall somewhere in between.

The point is that family activities are more about spending time together rather than spending money.

What are some of the activities your family enjoys?
