Hello! Welcome to Entertain Kids on a Dime.

My name is Jennifer Stallman and I’m a loving wife and mother of two beautiful children, but I’m also an avid blogger whose mission it is to provide my readers with ways to help keep their kids busy and entertained, all without breaking the bank.

I’m always looking for your feedback, so please be in touch! You can find me on Facebook or feel free to reach out through the Contact Us page.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful rest of your day!

So Much More Than Just a Blog.

Did you know? Entertain Kids on a Dime extends far beyond just a blog site with tips and advice on how to treat your kids to a good time for less. It’s a directory filled with Ontario’s top kid-friendly businesses. It is home to exclusive coupons to top children’s attractions within the Greater Toronto Area and the rest of Ontario. And most importantly, it’s a community of like-minded parents who are passionate about spending quality time with their children without splurging.

Exclusive Savings on Kids’ Entertainment.

I strongly believe parents shouldn’t have to pay full price to keep their kids entertained. Which is why I’m proud to offer exclusive printable coupons to top family attractions in the Greater Toronto Area, as well as the rest of Ontario!

I’m constantly working to negotiate the best deals for savings on top-notch family activities that kids of all ages would enjoy. Which is why you can always depend on Entertain Kids on a Dime to be your number one source for affordable children’s entertainment ideas.

Fall Fun Guide.

Looking for something to do in Ontario this fall that the whole family will enjoy? Autumn is the best time for fruit picking, wagon rides, corn mazes and hay jumps.

From orchards to petting farms, I’ve compiled the ultimate list of where to go, what to do, and how to do it for less after Labour Day.

This list will be constantly updated so be sure to check back for more!

Free Outdoor Places.

Wondering where in Ontario you can go during the warm months that will be fun for the kids, yet friendly to your wallet?

I know the summer months can be hard because your children are no longer in school, and you have to constantly find ways to keep them busy. Well nothing beats entertaining your kids for FREE! That’s why I have put together a list of free outdoor parks, splash pads, beaches, farms and zoos.

Please note that some places may charge for parking. I chose the most unique looking parks and splash pads to list. Some of them I have not yet visited but I plan to take my children to as many as I can. If you are going to plan a beach visit, make sure to check online that it is safe to swim.

I hope you enjoy and save lots and lots of money while still having a great time with your kids!

Here are 7 FREE public indoor activities you can bring the kids to in Ontario!
