KidsClutter Free Kid Activities

Spending time together as a family doesn’t have to involve stuff or leave you with a house full of clutter to pick up at the end of the day. 




Take a trip to the library.  Borrowing books from the library allows kids to experience a wide range of stories and books without overwhelming your bookshelves.


Go for an outdoor adventure.  The DC metro area is a playground for outdoor adventures.  See which parks are in your area here:


  1. Virginia –
  2. Maryland –
  3. Washington D.C. –


Host a cooking class.  If you’d rather not brave the intense summer heat, why not pass the time passing on a favorite family recipe?  Spending time cooking with your kids is not only fun, but it takes care of an item on your checklist – making dinner!


Put on a family play.  Have your kids write their own play or act out a story they already know.  Use items from around the house to encourage creativity without purchasing more stuff.


Visit a museum; skip the gift shop.  The DC metro area has a museum for any interest and as an added bonus all of the Smithsonian attractions are free of charge.  Check out which might be the best for your kids at


Happy Organizing!
