The Easter holidays are approaching and it has got me thinking about getting out and about with the kiddies. So I thought I would just share with you some of the things I do with my kids on a budget and hopefully it will give you some ideas and perhaps some money saving ideas too. I get lots of ideas from other mums when I am talking to them so please add your ideas in the comments as I sure I will find them useful!
Days out don't have to be expensive. Here are some pictures of my two out and about at some free things!
Free Days Out
My first choice is always free days out! There are so many examples, here are a few:
Cheap Days Out
There are many cheap options out there which will keep your little ones busy for a couple of hours, or you can combine with some of the ones from the free list to make it a longer day out!
Pay for an Annual Pass
Buying an annual pass is more expensive in the short term but it means you can have free access as many times as you during the year, which is ideal if you choose somewhere which is quite local to you. We have annual passes for Longleat, which are expensive initially, but actually are well worth it for the number of times we visit during the year and the number of events we are able to attend using them.
Choose somewhere near to you that you kids love visiting and invest in an annual pass. Then next year go for somewhere else so they don't get bored! Or invest in National Trust or English Heritage membership to give you free access to lots of different places.
Pack a picnic, drinks and snacks, this will be much cheaper than buying food while you are there. I always have to carry food with me as my kids always state they are hungry at inconvenient times!!
