33 Cheap Activities For Your Kids This Summer

mandygodbehear, ThinkStock

I would love to sign my kids up for every amazing camp this summer but, lets be honest. I don’t have an extra $500.00 and I would love some activities that I could do with them. Thanks to Viral NovaI, I found 33 great ideas:
1.) Make roads for toy cars by using colored tape on carpet.
2.) You can also use tape to create some oversized, fun games.
3.) Turn your driveway into a fun target game using chalk and sponges.

4.) Chalk is also a great way to play dress-up without dolls.
5.) Exploding paint bags can be a messy, fun art project for your kids.
6.) Use plastic container lids, glue and food coloring for a neat painting craft.
7.) Have extra bubble wrap? Make stomp paintings.
8.) Cut up a tarp with scissors to make a cheap throwing game.
9.) Create a quiet, safe game of Jenga by using cut-up sponges.
10.) Use foil to make a big river in the backyard.
11.) Tape a paper towel roll to the wall to make a simple game for your toddler.
12.) Or run some pipe cleaners through a colander.
13.) “Sew” through burlap using plastic needles, making fun designs.
14.) Let kids practice their letters in this sugar writing tray.
15.) Go camping indoors and let your kids’ imaginations run wild.
16.) Let your kids experiment with water marbles.
17.) Create alien bubble science projects.
18.) Extract DNA from strawberries as a fun experiment.
19.) Balloon rockets teach a lesson, plus they are just fun.
20.) Make a mini bowling game with pencil erasers and marbles.
21.) Got yarn? Let kids crawl through a safe playground you create.
22.) Pretending the floor is lava can be turned into a fun, educational game.
23.) Make soap clouds by putting a bar of soap into the microwave.
24.) Let your kids compete in a Popcorn Olympics!
25.) Balloon ping pong is a fun activity your kids can safely play indoors.
26.) Strands of painter’s tape can form a fun, sticky spiderweb.
27.) Transform an old box into an indoor slide.
28.) Go outside and let your kids make a rainbow bubble snake from simple ingredients.
29.) Create a giant, DIY bubble wand.
30.) Fill balloons with Play-Doh for a fun new toy.
31.) Help kids create their own t-shirt designs with crayons and sand paper.
32.) Cut a pool noodle in half to make a marble race track.
33.) Or use those pool noodles to create a backyard obstacle course.
Pretty much all of these ideas require some parental supervision, but it should be fun for everyone involved!
