As a stay at home mom, I don’t really have the money to run all over the city with my kids all summer.  So over the years I have created several different lists of things they can do at home for free and a few things we can do out for free!  Hope this list is helpful to you!

 

Free things to do at home and a few things to get you out of the house.
