Ways to entertain your family without spending money

Ways to entertain your family without spending money

Want to entertain your family, but a bit low on cash? Don't stress. We have you covered.

Family board game

Not having enough money shouldn't be the reason you can't entertain your family. Entertainment doesn't always have to be costly. There are lots of things that you can do that can be lots of fun without even spending a cent.


You don't really need to go to some fancy restaurant to have fun. You can spoil your family with a nice home-cooked lunch or a braai. You can even let everyone have fun in the kitchen by making their favourite dish, then come together at the table to dine.

Share funny stories

Every family has funny stories to share, so why not gather in the living room and let each person tell their favourite funny story? This could be a great way of creating beautiful memories.

Watch a movie that you own

Going to the cinema as a family can cost a lot. Rather watch your family's favourite movie or take turns watching each person’s favourite movie. Don't forget the popcorn!

Tell a family story

If you are not keen on watching a movie, why not share your own family stories? Share your family history and tell some of the stories that make your family unique.

Play a game

There are lots of fun games that you can play as a family. If you run out of ideas, you can surf the internet for suggestions. The good thing about playing games is that they are not only entertaining, but you get to know each person’s strengths.

So go right ahead and have some fun!
