Its hard for parents in these cash strapped times to find ways to treat the family, and meals out are no exception. Well known restaurant chain Pizza Hut think they have the solution with their popular Kids Eat Free offer.
The Kids Eat Free offer has been running in branches nationwide all summer long to help out us recession hit parents, and so far a staggering but unsurprising 900,000 children have been able to take advantage of the variety available to eat in store.
Now, due to the popularity of the offer, Pizza Hut have extended the offer into the new year, and is now running the Kids Eat Free campaign until January 9th 2011.
So, how can you really take advantage of the offer and make a day of it, without breaking the bank?
Well, why not take a tip from 20SomethingMum and enjoy a day out at your local park?
Parks are currently under threat of closure due to the move by parents into soft play centres and modern kids love of games consoles.
But parks are great fun for all the family. Firstly, the kids are covered. What could be more fun than letting off steam running from roundabout, to swing and jumping around the climbing frames? Its also a great way for younger kids to learn those life skills as they socialize with other local kids, interacting and making up games and playing hide and seek.
From a parents view, parks are safe, enclosed areas where the kids can be allowed to roam in a safe environment. Its also a great way to snatch a well earned break on a bench- bring along the latest must read you've been dying to get into, and really relax!
After all that rest, why not set up a family footie game on the grass-just make sure Mum doesn't end up in goal!
By the time a few hours have been taken up with all that much needed running, jumping and playing, you know the children will sleep soundly as they'll be exhausted! But a day to bring the camera and capture all those memories of a fun day out. Better yet, there's no admission costs, no kiosks selling over priced drinks and sweets. Just grass and play equipment.
To round the day off, why not reward the kids with a meal at Pizza Hut, and continue the savings!
It couldn't be easier to take advantage of this great offer.
For every adult meal or Lunchtime Buffet place purchased, one child is entitled to either a free 2 course kids meal (including a drink of their choice), or a Kids Lunchtime Buffet (which includes Pizza, salad and pasta).
And, to carry on the savings, just look on the bottom of your receipt.
