Sometimes when money is tight, things get pretty stressful. Stressing doesn’t actually solve the problem and can really affect a family’s well being.
Here are my 7 Things To Do As A Family When Money Is Tight :
Pack up some sausages, bread, sauce,onions and drinks and head to a park or beach with a BBQ for lunch or dinner. Let the kids run and play while your cooking up a storm on the barbie. (Best bit .. little to no washing up!)
2. Bush Walk
Pack a backpack full of essentials and find a local bush walk. Get the kids to take pictures of things they love on their iPod or iPhone’s and when they get home get them to put it together into a slideshow of your day.
3. Bike Ride
Put on those bike helmets and take everyone off for a ride. Keep an eye out for a bike track in your area.
Gather up the troops from family, friends and neighbours and have a cricket match.
Bake a cake and have a lovely morning or afternoon tea. Even better, take it to the park to enjoy.
6. Movie Night In
Pop the popcorn, drag out comfy cushions and put on a family favourite movie.
7. Play A Game
Monopoly, Cards, Scrabble, Jenga or Twister. These great old games are all too often forgotten with the invention of tablets,phones and computers. Drag them out and set them up.
