Next week, we are embarking on another 7 Day No Spending Challenge. But just because we won’t be spending money, doesn’t mean we can’t have fun! Here are a few free activities you may be able to find in your neck of the woods.
- Free factory tours in your area.
- Home Depot DIY Organic Gardening workshop
- Lakeshore Learning – free craft project for kids
- William Sonoma – free Jr Chef Class: DIY Homemade Drinks
- Check out your local library reading club.
- Contact your local Parks & Recreation department, Community Center, Visitors Center or the local newspaper website for a list of free activities. Don’t forget to check with any nature centers, sports centers, lakes or community parks.
- Visit a national park for free this weekend (4/19-4/20).
- Bowl for free at Bowling Alleys across the country.
