Weekend Activities Ideas for the Mom of One

No luck with finding things to do to entertain your kid on the weekend?


I know, sometimes the activities can get a bit expensive, but if you have an active child like mines, you know how hard it is to find something to do but still keeping money in your wallet.


Do not fear or sweat - I have some great ideas head. Keep reading.


In my original YouTube - Rainy Day ideas, I have about 4 activities around the house that you can do with your child while keeping them entertained.






But what about when you want to go out? I know. Sometimes you (both) need some fresh air while enjoying some extra curricular activities. So below are some of my new found go to's for your enjoyment. Remember, it's the simplest things that make them joyful. As long as you are in the picture, it's already a win for them.
