Have you been spending more time at the pool than online? That’s good! But once you hit a string of thunderstorm days and need something new to keep the kids busy, you can bookmark this post to jog your memory. Here’s a recap of all the Frugal Fun posts I’ve done on FREE and low-cost Summer Programs for you and your kids:
- REI’s Passport to Adventure: pick up a Field Journal and spend some quality time outdoors with your kids
- Home Depot’s and Lowe’s Kids Workshops: Fun projects with wood and tools for kids 5-12
- Lakeshore Learning’s Crafts: craft projects every Saturday through the summer
- Kids Bowl Free: Register at your local bowling alley for 2 games per kid per day. You can bowl along with them for a reduced price.
- Free & Low-Cost Summer Movies: weekday morning movies at theaters nationwide
- Museum Visits: try a new museum on a free-admission day
- National Parks: Walk, hike, picnic, and explore the great outdoors with the whole family.
- Barnes & Noble’s and Borders’ Summer Reading Programs: your child can earn a prize when they participate.
- Local Library: Don’t forget the great summer programs offered at your public library. Ours has magic shows, puppet shows, and a great summer reading program.
Just a few weeks of summer left! Enjoy this time with your kids. You’ll miss them when they go back to school (I hope!).
