With schools letting out for the summer, parents everywhere are on the look out for ways to have fun with the kids without going broke. Surprisingly inexpensive fun is not hard to find. Check out these three opportunities to entertain the kids while keeping the wallet in check.
- Kids Bowl Free-Through this program, bowling alleys across the United States and Canada are offering kids the chance to bowl two games a day free all summer long. Yes, there is still shoe rental or purchasing bowling shoes somewhere, but even with that you can still come out ahead. Go to www.kidsbowlfree.com to get more details and to register your children.
- Kids Skate Free-Somewhat similiar to the bowling program, but at fewer venues, sign the kids up for several free roller skating sessions. Skate rental extra. Go to www.kidsskatefree.com to find the nearest participating rink.
- Your Local Library-From traditional summer reading programs to themed arts and crafts, public libraries offer a range of (generally free) summer activities for the kids. Most libraries now post their activities on their websites.
