13 Dec Frugal Fun for Families
Posted at 11:00h in Kids
You don’t have to travel far or spend your life savings to have a good time with your family! There are a lot of ways to have fun within Hendricks County.
Local Parks and StoryWalk®
Plainfield is home to many beautiful parks that are perfect for you and your little ones to explore. You can even find a little bit of the library as you do the StoryWalk® at Hummel Park! Every month there is a new story to be read along the trail.
Stuck at home with no way to pass the time? Play is an important way for children to learn about the world and interact with other people. Look around your house for items you can repurpose into a fun-filled activity. It can be as simple as a cardboard box. By using your imagination, you can travel the world without even stepping out your front door! A simple idea can grow into an amazing adventure if you encourage your family to use their imagination. Flying a plane and exploring a newly discovered planet has never been easier!
Look for Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer work may not seem like a great way to spend your time off, but giving a helping hand to your community is a surefire way to bring happiness. By allowing your family to help those in need, you’re teaching them what it means to be a part of a community and showing them that doing good feels good. You can search IndyHub for volunteer opportunities today!
Visit a Museum
Museums are terrific places to visit when you want to learn about history or expand your world view, but sometimes they fall out of your price range. Fortunately, the library offers passes to different museums in Indiana. You can find these passes and more in the Library of Things section or you can put them on hold using Evergreen.
