There's nothing I love better than doing fun activities with my kids. Admittedly, many of ours have included arts and crafts in the mix because of my artsy bent, lol. But frugality has always been important to us considering our low budget. Activities with my family make my fondest memories. How about you?
One of my favorite idea sources has been "Family Fun" magazine, for instance. Now, Jim Erskine has added to the mix with his latest freebie offering: "Our Favorite Family Fun Activities -- Volume One: At Home!" The ideas are fun for families of all kinds, whether homeschooling or not.
Here's how he describes this fun resource: " in Volume One we have a great collection of “real life” ideas for fun, frugal activities for the family – when you want to have a fun evening or afternoon AT HOME."
"Entertaining the family doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. (You can save those to buy gasoline.) There are all sorts of creative ways for the Family to have fun, be together, and spend little if any money. All it takes is a little resourcefulness, creativity, an open mind and a young heart. After all, nothing’s better than laughing with your family, and laughs are free."

One of my favorites in the 12-page PDF is the Treasure Hunt idea. I have so many wonderful memories of treasure hunts we've made in our family. We even do Christian-theme treasure hunts at Easter. (Search Easter for that post here on this website soon.)
