Budget Beating Activities For Summer Fun With Kids

It seems that these days kids are spending more and more time indoors. If they are not glued to the TV screen, they’re playing on a handheld device. While the ad for the Nintendo Switch showed kids and teens using the device outside, let’s face it, that was never going to be a reality. No, instead, kids sit upstairs playing on their device or chatting with their friends online. Indeed, thanks to Netflix kids can spend hours binge-watching shows, maybe without you even realising. It’s not that hard for a child to download Netflix and watch every episode of Alexa and Katie. So, what we’re looking at then is some of the best ways to get the kids outside. Here are some awesome activities that you can try.

Mountain Biking

Head to the wild outdoors and go mountain biking with your kids. This can be great fun, a real exhilarating ride and an excellent workout for everyone. It’s ideal for adventurous kids who love having fun in the sun and don’t mind the danger of a few bumps or scrapes. Of course, we suggest that you purchase all the right gear for protection incase they do fall off the bike. We’re talking elbow pads, knee pads and even a full head helmet. They’ll hate you for it, but you’ll be glad that they were fully protected if they do ever fall off.

As well as this, you need to get a great bike for them to use. It’s important to think about suspension as well as comfort when choosing a mountain bike for your child. The good news is that the best bikes are adjustable. As such, you don’t have to worry about buying another one every couple of years. So, it can be quite a cheap hobby.


Every once in a while, you might want to take your kids paintballing. This can be great fun and is guaranteed to be a hit with the kids. By paintballing, kids will have the opportunity to run around in an outdoor arena, and it even improves their motor skills. It’s all very safe too with different levels depending on the age of your child. Though paintballing is usually an activity for birthday parties, it can also be a fun adventure out on a summer day. If you can’t afford a vacation this year, heading paintballing every couple of weekends is sure to make the kids forget they’re not going on holiday.


Can you not afford a trip to your local water park? If that’s the case, then you may want to think about creating one in your backyard or close to your home. This is easy to do, and all you need is a water slide - a thin piece of plastic sheeting, a paddling pool and perhaps some water guns. All these are totally affordable at your local superstore. You can even get creative by putting the end of that toy slide from the backyard into the paddling pool. Just remember to be safe. On a hot summer day, this can keep the kids happy for hours.

We hope you have fun with these exciting possibilities that won’t break the bank and will get the kids outside.
