Saving money isn’t always easy especially if you are like us and have lots of kids! A fee such as $10 a person seems unaffordable when you multiply it by five kids and then add in the adults. Today we talk about places that we can go for free or you can do things and get a discount, or even get family passes! Even a field trips to a nature center or even go on a hike, can turn into a learning experience. And, you’ll save money just pay for parking that might be $3 for the whole family.

Don’t forget to pack well! You can visit this blog post by my granddaughter Samantha here with a field trip packing list.
