The kiddos and I have made it a priority to seek out all the free and dirt cheap things to do specifically in Texoma. All of them you can do during the summer, but many can be done any time of the year. We're equally excited about many of them, so we're not listing them in any specific order.
Just Free or Cheap! Oh, and fun!
You'll find that some of the activities on our list are some you won't find on anyone else's list of things to do simply because some of the best local adventures for kids are sometimes what we pass by everyday without even recognizing that it's a fun activity!
We've done a lot of these activities ourselves, so we hope to give you some realistic ideas for fun things on a budget. Actually, this list is something we'll constantly be adding to, so check back from time to time to see how much more we discover in the future.
Kids are money pits. Going on vacation is costly. Even going to the movies is a huge expense. We went to see Lion King this summer & it cost us almost $150 once you factor in drinks and snacks. So that's NOT on the list!
My hope is that you read this list and make some new discoveries. I'm sure some of these items you've already heard of or thought about...or maybe you've even done them before! But hopefully you'll see some of the things on this list from a new perspective and try them!
