Top 5 At 7:45 – Kid Activities That Cost Under $10

Bec Parsons

When we were growing up, it was not uncommon to hear mom say to us, “Go outside and play.” Nowadays, it seems we as parents are trying to find inexpensive ways to entertain our kiddos on a dime. Well, at least for under 10 bucks.

Today on the Top 5 at 7:45, I’ll highlight 5 activities to keep your little lovelies busy for just under $10. The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekdays on KGAB Mornings with me, Gary Freeman.

  1. Make roads for their toy cars by drawing streets and roads on the sidewalk.
  2. Turn your driveway into a big target area. You can draw target circles with a point system inside. You can also use sponges or bean bags to win.
  3. Use tin foil to make a home-made river. Shape the tin foil like a man-made swell and fill it with water. Toy boats welcome.
  4. Use pool noodles to make a back yard obstacle course. You can set them high or low between two chairs, benches or branches. They can hop over them or they can “limbo” underneath them. Careful not to knock them down.
  5. Hula-Hoop – Head down to the dollar store and pick up a hula-hoop. Great exercise for those high energy kiddos. Learn how to master the art here: Hula Hoop Tips.
