I recently saw a TV episode from a 1960's show where parents were bemoaning the expense of a child's birthday party. At the time, they were bemoaning $3 or $4 dollars for a theme park visit.
Although the dollar amounts have changed, the concern has not. It's easy to feel like having fun with your child or giving your preschooler a fun activity with his or her friends requires spending a ton of money.
But there are so many fun activities you can do with every-day items that cost almost nothing. The best part? You can do these fun activities with items you probably already own.
