I’m always on the look out for things to do with Squidge that doesn’t cost any (or very little) money. As most of us know times are tough and adding more financial burden to the mix isn’t something we can do right now. Squidge goes to singing lessons, Rainbows, Ballet & Tap and swimming. These are all things that I do not mind paying for as I see a long term benefit in them. Life shouldn’t just be full of lessons and things you have to do week in week out. Sometimes we want to do fun one off things.
So to that end every few weeks I’ll take a quick look at my local councils website for kid friendly events. It’s usually packed with fun things to do for very little money, Yay! This last time I checked there was an event sponsored by the RSPB to make bird feeders.
It was also very local to us so we bundled up and walked over. We were the first ones there so we had a one on one session with the RSPB park ranger and ended up making 2 feeders! Squidge chatted with the ranger and showed off her bird knowledge and I was one proud mama! I guess buying that RSPB bird book a few years ago was a good thing.
