Since we love to go camping as a family, my husband thought it might be fun to camp out in the living room with my boys on a Friday night. I thought it was a perfect idea, since I had to work that evening. Little did we know how much the kids were going to love it.
After dinner, my husband and the boys pulled out all their bedding (sleeping bags, pillows) and put them down on the floor in the living room while they watched a movie. Then, it was bedtime…on the living room floor. The boys went right to sleep.
Of course, I have to have some advantages to having 2 boys, so I dubbed this “Boys Camp out”, which meant that I could sleep in my bed. But, when the boys woke up, they were so excited to tell me that they had a camp out in the living room. And, my 5 year old has been counting down the days until Friday when he can do it again.
Their camp out created a memory for a lifetime…and it didn't cost a cent! What frugal activities do you do with your kids?
