$30 to be a kid for a day. Go to a novelty items store (Crazy Clarks, Sams Warehouse) visit the junk toy isle, buy water pistols, face paint, foam balls shooters…whatever tickles your fancy. Take a picnic and go and have a ball at your nearest park. Let loose with your inner child and chase each other around the park, forget anyone can see you and just enjoy each other with silly crazy fun. Its surprisingly liberating and something to laugh about for a long time after!
