Family activities don't have to be elaborate or costly to be enjoyable. Often the simplest activities are the ones kids enjoy the most. We've taken our kids to Walt Disney World and a host of other extravagant vacations, but the things they seem to enjoy the most are going on picnics and having family game night.
I can't guarantee that your family will enjoy all of these activities, but there's sure to be something here to please just about everyone.
Next time you think that you can't afford to have fun with your family, get out your creativity and this list and plan a fantastically frugal family adventure.
