The sun has the effect of making us want to go out and have some fun. This can be costly though, especially if you have children to pay for as well. However, it doesn’t have to be; if you plan carefully and take advantage of any special offers that some of the summer attractions have. This post is about how to save money on summer days out.
If you have two or three children, the cost of getting the whole family into a theme park can be enormous. It can cost you more than your weekly shop just to get in the gates before you do anything once you are inside. Theme parks are also the sorts of places that will have put discount codes on some websites though, or in some shops. They often related to a reduced price per person or a special discount if there are four or more of you. This can make a big difference to the cost of the entrance fees, so keep a watch out for the theme park voucher codes.
If you plan to go to a theme park and stay overnight, using Premier Inn voucher codes instead of staying onsite, can also work out cheaper when you have a large family to look after, so it’s always worth looking carefully at your options.
Not only that, but some of the supermarkets allow you to exchange your loyalty points for deals with the larger theme parks and that is worth checking out as well.
These days, museums are very child-friendly and often have an area dedicated just to the kids. But best of all most of them, are usually free. They can be the perfect antidote for the cries of boredom on a wet and rainy day.
Science museums are usually great fun for them as often there are experiments they can take part in.
Kids Love Picnics
Take the kids to your local park, or the beach if you live near the coast and want a really cheap and cheerful day out. As long as they have a ball or something else to play with they can be happy for hours. Take a picnic with you, as children love to eat in this way. Also, pack plenty of fluids for them and then you might find that the most you have to spend is on an ice cream for everyone.
Use Your Back Garden
Why not invite a few friends, and let the children do the same and have a barbeque in your back garden. This need not cost much at all as most people now accept that they should bring food and drink with them. This is all just put together for everyone to help themselves. Some people love this idea as it lets them show off their cooking skills.
If you do not have a barbeque don’t let that stop you. Just have a table ready for everyone to put their contributions on and let them know any food should be cooked before they bring it.
This saves you standing over a hot stove, and lets you enjoy the get together along with everyone else.
A Bit Of Imagination
A bit of imagination is all it needs to entertain your kids cheaply. Consider bike rides or the local swimming baths as well. These are both things you and they can enjoy without spending too much money. Have fun!
