Once you have a family, you’re going to face the regular reality of expensive days out. This is an inevitable part of parenthood, and it’s a financial hardship you’ll have to bear. Days out are essential bonding time, after all, and they can teach your kids a great deal. The trouble is that entry fees are never cheap. Not to mention that you’ll lose money by taking time out for these things.

Unless, of course, you take time for side hustles which make days out pay. Just like that, you can both make back your entry money and cover the costs of lost work. That’d free you up to spend more time with your family, and remove any guilt about doing so. We’d say that’s an effort worth taking. But, how exactly is it possible?

Take the time to invest

Investment is THE passive income. This way, you could make large amounts of cash no matter where you are or what you’re doing. It’s a risky move, of course, but doing your research and getting help understanding things like implied volatility could see you hitting big bucks. And, if you get a trading app on your phone, you can take care of this while you walk around that safari. To really make your day out pay, you could even visit destinations which offer stock options. You’ll feel better about that day at the theme park if you’re there to test whether their stocks would be worth your while. Your kids will get a fun day out while you get a sound investment transaction under your belt.

What about reviews?

Of course, investing isn’t the only silent way to ensure family days out pay. There is also a huge market at the moment for reviewing. Lucky for you, there’s always a decent demand for reviews about family destinations. Even better, there are various ways to make this work. It may be that you work through a review site which requires you to visit parks and log your thoughts for payment. Or, you may want to start a blogging site and review your days out once they’re over. If you make this option work, you could even enjoy free entry. That could see you taking more family days in the future.

Vlog about it

Along the same vein, taking a camera along may be all it takes to make these days worth your financial while. Vlogging is big business at the moment as YouTube forever comes to the fore. If you don’t have the patience to write reviews, then, this is the money-making option for you. It also makes a lot of sense given that you would be taking snaps and footage of your kids anyway. Admittedly, this does mean putting your family out there for the world to see. But, if you’re okay with that, you could earn decent amounts through nothing more than your family videos. And, who wouldn’t want to create memories and make money at the same time?
