Book Description

Make the Moments Count - 121 Adventurous, Unique and Affordable Family and Kids Activities

Boredom set in? Itching to do some new and exciting activities with your kids? Are you finding activities you want to do are too expensive? Want to learn about REALISTIC ways to keep costs down by living resourcefully? We've brought our 'A' game on this one folks!

Not every activity has to cost big money. If the economic downturn taught us anything, it's that we can change the way we approach spending by focusing on cost-effective deals, fun freebies and overlooked activities that won't break the budget. Spending less today leads to a healthy financial future.

In the guide "Make the Moments Count - 121 Adventurous, Unique and Affordable Family and Kids Activities," you'll get easy-to-follow instructions on EXACTLY how you can spend a fun couple hours, a day, or a weekend by spending very little (or nothing at all!)

Specifically, you'll be presented with material from the following chapters:

  • Educational Experiences

  • Appreciative Actions

  • Athletic Activities

  • Water Works

  • Entertaining Events

  • Book Bonanza

  • Indoor Ideas

  • Crafts Corner

  • Neighborhood Nuances

  • Recipe Results

  • Outstanding Outdoors

  • It's not that these ideas are being pulled out of thin air. It just so happens that many are overlooked, undervalued, or new to the scene.

    You'll become resourceful, you'll become savvy, and you'll always be-a-savin'!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book of Ideas June 6, 2014
    By A. Z.
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I’m glad I bought this book. These past years we’ve been scrimping on family entertainment because of the high cost of living. With the ideas and suggestions presented in this book, we can now have fun during weekends and vacations without spending a lot of money. I especially like doing the free stuff.

    Included in the 121 ways are outdoor and indoor activities; so the ideas are good for rainy days and sunny days too. And you can also manage your time as needed as there are activities that can be done in a few hours, the whole day, or over the weekend.

    I also like that some of the suggestions presented in this book encourage resourcefulness in children. And there are worthy causes too; so it’s not just a book that’s focused on fun and useless entertainment. It allows children to become more responsible and caring about their surroundings and the people around them as well.

    My children are already excited to try out some of the 121 things that we can do together. This is a very useful book!

    5.0 out of 5 stars √ Excellent, Creative, Fun! June 12, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I really liked this book. Lots of clever ideas--many of which I would not have thought of. These are really great ways to have good clean fun with your family--plus, it doesn't involve doing a video game!

    ▲ Visit a working farm. Sounds like fun--honestly, I would never have dreamed of doing that.
    ▲ Free Kids Bowling. Had no idea there was such a free thing.
    ▲ Watch horse racing. Okay, even I have done that.
    ▲ Watch a pro-sports team practice. Yes, but they've all moved to Arizona!
    ▲ Watch a minor-league team.
    ▲ Build a slip and slide. Very creative idea!

    In sum, excellent book with huge number of different ways to have fun with your family. There are lots of references, including TONS of useful links.

    √ Highly Recommend!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource For Parents!! June 16, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I purchased this book hoping I can find some great ideas for things I can do with my wee ones during the summer. I am pleased with the amount of great information and activity ideas! There is a lot of original ideas, as well as old favourites!

    I love that the activities are budget friendly, and a lot of them you can do whenever you want with little to no prep. They are awesome for those days when your children chime, " I'm boooooored!!".
