In an effort to make better use of our time, we’re ditching the T.V. and video games this summer and focusing on things that are a bit more low tech. Great entertainment doesn’t have to be complicated or cost a lot of money. Some of my favorite things to do as a child didn’t cost a thing!
With a new baby in the house, we’re getting a slow start to our summer fun, but so far my kids are having a blast discovering new entertainment options that they are sure no one else has ever tried before like camping in the backyard or burning leaves with a magnifying glass.
It’s been a blast to watch how excited my kids get at the simplest activities. Who would have guessed the backyard could rival the latest video game?
We started off with a summer classic — the backyard buzz cut. I can’t seem to master cutting my kids’ hair but I can do a buzz cut. It keeps my kids cool and saves some money in the process. Win – win.
