It's that time of the month when you have just enough money to keep you going until payday comes. 

So, it can be difficult to plan a fun-filled weekend for the kids when you have allocated money for things that are priorities. This is why we wanted to suggest a few things that don't cost much and are great kid-pleasers. 

The best part is that most of these activities cost R100 or less and can be reused. 

1. Playdough

Make some fun playdough for the kids or if you are not in the mood to make it, you can get a jar of it from your local SPAR for around R60.
