You'd be surprised how much money you actually have just sitting around your house.  Especially in your closet - all those clothes you no longer wear.  All that costume jewelry that just sits.  What about shoes and boots and belts (that no longer fit)!  What about your kitchen cabinets filled with cups you no longer use?

What can be family fun about this, gather up all the non-used clothing and toys and jewelry.  Clean it.  Take some pics.  Post it on eBay or take it to a second-hand store.  Get the kids involved.  Donate what you can and sell the rest.  Make sure the kids are totally involved and make it a family project some weekend.
