To save money for some the activities, I used coupons that I saved for fun things to do. I also took advantage of the daily deals Groupon offers.
My goal was to encourage family time. Some of the activities are; a picnic at the park, baking together, calling a loved one, taking treats to the pups at PAWS and doing something nice for one of our neighbors.
Each day my son or my daughter will pick from the bucket and whichever token they chose will be our fun activity for the day.
As I thought about this idea I thought it may be too childish for my 16 yr old, but she surprised me and really loved it. In fact I overheard her telling her friend about it on the phone. Later my children thanked and told me it was "cool"! Me cool? Nah...!
