Entertaining the kids can get pretty expensive. You can take them to Chuck E. Cheese’s and drop a good amount of money depending on how many games they want to play. You can take them to an amusement park and drop a couple of hundred in the blink of an eye. Or, you can look for free thing to do like take them to the park.
