Summer is around the corner, and many companies offer free programs for your kids. Don't miss out on those, you get to keep the kids busy, and get out of the house for Free. Here are some of the things you can do:
Regal Free Family Film Festival: Beginning in June, select Regal Theaters will offer free family friendly movies starting at 10 am each Tuesday and Wednesday during the festival. Tickets are only available the day of the show and first-come, first-served seating is limited to theatre capacity. Check their website for a location near you and a schedule.
Kids Bowl Free Program: Kids can bowl free this summer! By participating in the “Kids Bowl Free” program, children can bowl two free games per day. Check here for participating locations.
Lowe's Free Build and Grow Clinics: Every other Saturdays starting at 10:00 am.
Home Depot Free kids workshop: : Kids Workshops are Free "How-to workshops" designed for ages 5-12 (side note, my kids have done these younger than 5 and enjoyed them). They are held the first Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
Museums on us: If you have a Bank of America Credit, Debit or ATM card, you can get free admission to over 100 participating museums, zoos and science centers the first weekend of every month.
Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Club: Kids in grades 1-6 can receive a free book from Barnes & Noble by reading 8 books over the summer. They will need to fill out a Summer Reading Journal and bring the journal to a B&N location when they are finished. They will then receive a coupon for a free book.
Borders Double Dog Dare You Reading Program: Kids 12 and under can join the Borders Double Dog Dare You Reading program. They will earn a free book when they read 10 books, fill out this form and bring it in to any Borders, Waldenbooks, or Borders express store by August 26, 2010.
HeBuddy.com Summer Reading Club: HeBuddy.com is offering ‘cool prizes’ to kids who read 10 books this summer. (Younger children can have parents read to them.)
