4 Fun Things You Can Do This Weekend for Free (or Nearly Free) without Fueling Up

By Bigg Success Staff

Work – Life Balance


Backyard picnic

Make it an event! Lay out a blanket. Bring out the picnic basket. Make the food interesting – e.g. all finger foods. You may even have a theme (e.g. red, white & blue if you’re in the U.S.). Dust off the Frisbee, play some ball, or whatever you like to do on a picnic. It’s all in the comfort of your own backyard.

Host a potluck

Invite some friends over for brunch or dinner. Ask everyone to bring one part of the meal, foods they could just buy if they choose. Keep it simple and inexpensive. It’s about spending time with friends, not putting on an elaborate show.

Play some old-fashioned games

Think back to your childhood. What games did you play? Do you remember Hide-and-Seek? How about Red Light – Green Light? Pull one or more of them off-the-shelf and have some good old-fashioned fun!

Water works

On a hot summer’s day, few things feel as good as some cool water. So have some fun with water. Have a balloon toss … or a balloon fight. Or if you want, how about a water water gun fight? These are not your father’s water guns – they’re super-charged these days!

If you want to be productive, wash the family cars. There’s just one rule – no one’s allowed to stay dry!

How do you have fun without fueling up?
