We continued our 4 Weeks of Frugal Family Fun with one of our most favorite activities….storytime at our local library!
I started taking my kids to storytime when they were little babies; I think it is so important to introduce reading and books while they are small, to hopefully instill a love of reading as they get older. So far, it has totally worked with my daughter, and I couldn’t be happier. She’s already a book lover, just like her mom and dad!
Our son has just really started taking a stronger interest in books over the past few months…and can settle down long enough to sit through the stories! I take him to the library every Monday, and it has become one of his favorite activities with Mom. And now that school is out for the summer, his sister can rejoin us each week 🙂
After storytime, we head over to the shelves and pick out our weekly supply of books and videos. We usually only watch 1 or 2 each week and read the library books at bedtime.
The best part about the library, besides all the wonderful books, movies and classes, is that it is free! What could be more frugal than that?
