Frugal Family Fun: Indianapolis Children's Museum
Because we were foster parents for a period of time (and actually still have our foster parent's license), we got a FREE membership to the Indianapolis Children's Museum. We originally thought we would just get free one time passes and were shocked to find out it was a whole year's membership.
Indianapolis has an amazing children's museum, but it is three hours from our house. However, we are in Indy all of the time because that is where Riley Children's Hospital is. We have been able to visit several times this year and actually went there a few times this week.
Memberships are a great way to enjoy frugal fun with your family all year long. There is typically an initial investment, but we often make that back after a few trips. I always figure out how much one trip would cost our family and then figure out how many trips to the place we would have to take in order to recoup our costs. In this case, we didn't have any cost at all!
Brian was able to go with us the very first time and Grandpa even joined us once. Gavin and I spent 5 1/2 hours there earlier this week. The kids and I love our time there and I'll relish the memories made.
