educational toolsEvery week, there are several free (or frugally priced) kids events that your child can participate in. Most of them involve the creation of a craft or art project. Now that summer vacation is over, the free kids events will begin to wind down. Here are a few that your kids can still attend!

Each month, LEGO stores offer a special Mini-build event for kids. The event is for children who are between the ages of 6 and 14. LEGO events are free to attend. It is offered “while supplies last.”

Lakeshore Learning
Kids can attend a free craft event at Lakeshore Learning stores every Saturday. You don’t need to register ahead of time. Just drop in! The events begin at 11:00 in the morning and end by 3:00 in the afternoon.

Lowe’s Build and Grow
Lowe’s offers free craft events for kids on Saturdays. Parents must register their child before the event begins. You cannot just drop in. Kids will get a free apron, goggles, and a patch. They also get to create a wooden project.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
