Summer Reading Activites

Thrifty Thursday: Free Summer Activities for KidsBy Apryl Duncan, About.com Guide June 2, 2011



Have you noticed how kids count down the days for school to be out and then one week into summer break they're whining about how bored they are? The good news is, there are plenty of free summer activities for kids that will entertain them right up until school starts again.

At my house, we've planned our strategy for all of the freebies on the list. Our first activity is the free summer reading program at our library, followed by Vacation Bible School and then we'll take advantage of free admission offers to children's museums, theaters and art museums.
That's just phase 1. There are a dozen freebies on the list so we'll be having fun all summer at no cost.
It will be a long summer if we just sit within our 4 walls. We're going to make sure we take advantage of all of the free summer activities available.
Which free summer activities are you looking forward to your children participating in?

I do exactly the same. I plan what we are going to do each week and invite friends with children also. There is a summer reading scheme in UK libraries so we always start there. Them free museums and events local. We went fruit picking last year for the first time and that was great. We also do ice-skating once a week. So by the time they have a day off - they are happy to stay inside and just play or go in the garden. Thanks for the reminder - must start preparing again.
