Frugal Family Fun!


This February in British Columbia, a new official holiday was introduced called Family Day.  The holiday is intended to bring families closer together by providing a special day to just spend time together. So in honour of this new holiday, I have listed some fun and inexpensive ways to bond together as a family. Also for your enjoyment, my six year old has written a song just for the occasion! (Click on the link below to have a listen.)
