    Have a scavenger hunt. A good scavenger hunt is to have a whole lot of things to look for at a shop. But, it requires no money. so like simple things like a piece of paper, business card, paper towels (at a food court or something) a loose button etc. Also ones to do at night are: Glow in the dark scavenger hunt. (best to do it when parents are asleep) scatter glow in the dark items around the house and within a 5 minute time limit you have to find as many as you can. The person with the most glow in the dark items wins.

Take pictures with a digital camera or video tape them so you can make them a CD or DVD of their show.

    Play color tag. Choose a person to be "it". "It" stands on the side of the pool with their back to the other swimmers who are lined up in the water on the same side of the pool as "it". Players choose a color and keep it to themselves. "It" begins to call out colors one at a time. If a player's color is called out, they must try to make it to the other side of the pool as quietly as they can. If "it" hears them swimming, then they can dive into the pool and try to tag a player. If "it" turns around and the players still have a hand on the side of the pool, then "it" must take a step away from the edge and start again. If "it" catches a swimmer then the swimmer becomes the new "it".
