Pay it Forward Friday ~ Free or Cheap South Florida Activities

Naomi Polovich from NaomiParentInfo is a South Florida blogger who loves finding activities for her kids that are free or cheap.   So whether you live in South Florida, or are just visiting, check out her blog to find more fun things to do with your kids.


Free or Cheap South Florida Activities

Are you looking for something to do with your children that is reasonably priced or even FREE?  There are many things to see or do in South Florida and they can even be a great learning experience for your children!
Your local Lowes and Home Depot stores offer a free monthly workshops for children.  Your child will have a chance to build using nails and a hammer. Once they complete the workshop, your child will get a certificate and pin or badge. This would be a great father/son or daughter activity!  Check out the stores' websites for more information.
For those crafty types, there are many classes offered at Micheals and AC Moore.  The classes change depending on the month.  Some crafts center around the holiday during that time of year.  Most classes are free; some require purchase of materials.
Since it is South Florida, what goes better with the beautiful weather and atmosphere?  You guessed it, local parks and nature centers!  Here is one that you may not know about:

Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton is rated as one of the top 10 playgrounds in South Florida.  They have a huge wooden playground area and a carousel that only costs $1 to ride. There is an indoor science museum; free of charge.  This park also offers many cheap classes for the children to attend as well.  There is also an onsite theater where you can watch classic kids movies for a minimum fee that includes the movie, popcorn and a drink. 
Other nature centers around South Florida:
