Free Summer Fun Round Up!

Summer will be here before you know it and you'll be hearing that familiar, "Mom.... I'm bored!" We'll, no need to worry! I've rounded up a bunch of FREE and cheap things you can do with your kidlets to keep it fresh and fun - and without breaking the bank!


Regal Entertainment Group has their FREE Family Film Festival each summer. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays kids can choose from two different movies to see. We hit up the local United Artist theater weekly to catch our flicks. Ah, I can feel the free air conditioning now.

TD Bank (formerly Commerce) has their summer reading program once again. Kids read (or read along with parents) 10 books and fill out a form. Stop by your local branch and get $10 deposited into a savings account. We did this last year to open up my son's very first bank account and will no doubt repeat it.

Barnes & Noble is gearing up for their summer reading program too. Kids read 8 books and fill out the printable summer reading journal and redeem it for a free book instore. This is for kids grades 1-6.

Kids Bowl Free allows kids to bowl up to 2 games a day free at participating alleys. Once you sign up online you will get coupons for to 7 days a week of bowling. I am excited that one in our area is participating this year! Children ages 15 and under are eligible. You must rent shoes or bring your own.

AMC Summer Movie Camp isn't free, but it is pretty darned close! For $1 (that goes to charity) kiddos can enjoy a movie each Wednesday this summer.

Thanks to Niki for some additional free and cheap finds to add to this list!

Don't forget your local library either. Ours have great summer reading programs and other fun (and free) activities.
