sidewalk chalk and bubbles can both be found at the dollar tree. our imaginations are super. There are plenty of parks near by. And if it's cold we go to mcdonalds (after we've had lunch) and order a drink for the adults and water for the kids. So, it only costs like $3.
Now that DS is big enough to play on the playground we are trying to find playgrounds/parks.
I've never heard of redbicycle.com What is it?
We have so many parks around our house that we can really try different ones all the time to keep kids from getting bored. I scour different websites like redbicycle.com to find free/inexpensive activities going on in our area
