Free Summer Activities

Summer is nearly here as Jonah will be done with preschool this week. I've been thinking about activities for the summer and collecting information so we have low cost options through the week. Here are some things I'm keeping in mind as the summer approaches.

Regal Cinemas is continuing its Free Family Fun Festival this summer. They play "kid" type movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 am. Admission is free - snacks are not. Some theatres have catered to this group with left over popcorn from the night before selling it for $1. This is more the exception than the rule. So, keep that in mind when trying to keep things cheap.

Many bowling alleys are participating in the Kids Bowl Free program this summer. Where kids get two games of bowling free per day during the summer. You have to sign up at a specific bowling alley and then they send you coupons in a weekly email. I already received coupons as the program starts this week.

Libraries and bookstores offer free story times. The state museums here are free as well. And let's not forget the myriad of parks available.
