Let's talk about FREE family activities!
Especially with summer coming up I know parents out there are thinking what they can do with the kiddos while staying on budget.
Today we're talking about local activities here in Southwest Florida, but most areas have similar activities. You just have to keep your eyes open and know where to look.
Facebook mom groups, the newspaper, bulletin boards at the library and even the grocery store are even great places to hear about events.
I'm going to get us started and y'all can add to this list to help other mommas find some cool things to do on a budget.
Go to the Beach is our #1
easiest around here. Pack some snacks, grab a beach towel and soak up the giggles as your kids splash in the water.
Four Mile Cove Ecology Park - board walk with access to the river. Great place for a long walk to learn about nature and have a picnic.
Kidsbowlfree.com gives your kids 2 free games of bowling per day and is available in all areas!
Go to the library. Our libraries in Cape Coral have so many free activities including music day for babies, and of course free books and movies!
Home Depot has free workshops for kids 5-12 where they can learn a new skill, make a fun craft and meet other kids.
Visit a fire station. The guys LOVE having visitors. It gives them a way to get out of their chores and they'll let the kids sit in the trucks, play with the gear and turn on the siren.
Lee County Manatee Park. You may have to pay a dollar or 2 for parking but then you have access to the whole park.
Mantanzas Pass Preserve. Located in Estero the preserve has over 1 mile of trails and is a place where kids are immersed in nature.
Lakes Park. Trails, a playground and weekly they have one of the best farmers markets I've been to!
There are tons more!!! You just have to look. Join some mom groups (easy and online), ask round and keep your eyes open. You never know what you'll find.
