What does a family on a limited income and new to a city do for fun? This is a good question to ask.
We have been in Brussels for a short period of time (60 days) but we have tried to find inexpensive things to do on Friday evenings as a family. We have set ourselves a budget of 10 euros or less. Our family prefers free these days, but we know getting out and having a Coke or a coffee cost euros.
Here are a couple of the Friday night fun times we have had together.
Go to a local Christmas fair and walk around observing new cultural goods.
Going to IKEA and having .50 euro hotdogs and looking at all the compact living paraphernalia.
Eating frites at a local stand is a hit with the family. (My mouth is full.)
Getting 2 desserts and a large bottle of water and sharing between 5 people. (I caught Peyton off guard.)
All in all, it is about our family being together and moving around the city that is the most fun. Friday night has already become a favorite time and something to look forward to after a hard week of language study.
What does your family do together that is inexpensive and leads to great memories?
