So far I have given you the typical adventures but if you are like me and you enjoy thinking outside of the box have you ever considered volunteering at a local animal shelter as a fun, free way to spend the time?
I volunteer at San Antonio Pets Alive (SAPA) http://www.sanantoniopetsalive.org/ with my girls but San Antonio has no shortage of available shelters that need a variety of help. I visit with my girls and take home a cat, kitten, dog or puppy to love on until they are ready for their new home.
Many of them only need help for a short time. My girls love the influx of animals and being able to play with them and I love that by the time they lose interest the animals are already on their way to their furever homes.
I challenge you to find your temporary furry friend and enrich the lives of your children with animals for free because the puppy or kitty kisses are worth it.
