3. Load up on free days
In many communities, museums, zoos, and other local attractions offer a weekly “free day.” These are a great way to introduce your kids to something new, or to revisit a place they love, without racking up huge expenses.
If they don’t like it, all you’ve lost is a couple of hours. And, who knows? They may discover a love for art, music, etc., that they never knew they had.
