So put on your thinking caps-
What activities can you still find out there that cost nothing.
Just the activity, not the supplies it might cost or costs involved to get there...
Here's a few to get us started:
Hiking in the forest
Walking around town
Playing in the park
Indoor or outdoor suggestions.
Please no skating, sledding, snowman (although this is cute: Headless Snowman (Outdoor Winter Games for Kids) | Winter Fun & Games | FamilyFun), standard crafts, bowling, movies, reading, baking type suggestions. LOL
Looking for ideas if the kids have friends...

I remember there was a thread a while back where people were listing frugal activities. I can't seem to find it, so I was hoping to start a new one.
I'm just looking for fun free (or cheap) frugal activities to do with a family. Also, if there are good ideas for date nights with your spouse...
The Only Price of Admission for These Great Activities is Ingenuity

Curious what are great indoor activities for kids that don't include being plugged into tv, computers or game consoles?
I thought we could make a fun list for fall and winter.

Down to earth crafts, recipes from scratch, gardening advice, family activities, geneology tips, and ideas for teaching your kids and grandkids about the generations that came before them.
When I was a kid, my folks for the most part allowed us to pick our own activities and interests. I was always reading or writing, and they just let me go my way on that. On the other hand, they insisted that we be a part of our church activities (which wasn't much since we went to a little...
A gripe I have with my daughters school system is that they send home fund raising stuff that requires them to turn money in within a few days. I usually throw this stuff away.
My daughter joined karate after school. I had a week to come up with money for it. I don't mind paying for it cause my...
I just found out that I have the privilege of coordinating a weekly activity for adult learners of English, most of them are recent immigrants to the States. It is a volunteer thing, but I am so glad to get out of the house and contribute! The point of these activities is to demonstrate...
A schedule of events and activities
And some craft and party ideas
My homeschool group is getting together to watch the swearing in, make crafts, and eat "presidential snacks". We want to make it...
How many different activities are you children involved in?
My DD and DS have several things they are involved in... I feel like I am running around quite a bit for an 8 and 6 year old.
I was wondering how others manage this.
This site has some fun printable word puzzles and activities related
to the election.
On Currclick they are holding a mock election for homeschoolers.
I was also looking for some fun crafts as well but...
As hard as I try to keep my kids' activities to a reasonable level, there always seems to be more activities than time! Planning the logistics of transportation, sports uniforms, snacks, homework is a real challenge! So, here's what we do:
On Sunday night we sit down and update the family...
Hello everyone, I am trying to think of some good activities to enroll my daughter in for when I am off work and she is out of daycare/school. I am a single father and she is three years old, so beauty pageants would probably be out of the question, I will let her mother tackle that one. Any...
I have been thinking for a while that many of the things I do everyday are such a part of my routine, that I don't stop to consider whether they are frugal.
I've decided that I'll see how many things I can do each day that I consider frugal. I'm hoping this will inspire me to seek new frugal...
I'm so ready for camping season to start.
I'm trying to plan activities for my kids. We do ALOT of camping. We camp every weekend May to September. So I would like some new ideas for things to do.
The ages of the kids are boy: 14, girls 9, 11, and 4. The little one hangs out with me, or plays...
I've been trying to find some new games and activities for my almost 4 year old. I just thought I would start this, and maybe I could get some ideas from you guys!
We play games (Top-It, Hi Ho Cherrio, etc.), build forts, watch some TV, color (but my boys don't enjoy coloring that much)...
