Cheap Summer Fun


Im quickly figuring out that as my kids get older, the more expensive they get! And the expenses dont take a summer vacation. Cub Scout camp, swim lessons, weekend trips to the lake, flag football registration and back to school clothes and supplies can really add up. So I came up with a list of things that are free (or almost free) to do with the kiddos this summer. I hope I get the chance to try all of them and more!



    • Hit up all the splash pads at the local parks. They are free and the kids love them on a hot day! Pack a picnic lunch and make a whole afternoon of it.

    • Regal Summer Movie Expressoffers $1.00 admission to certain kid friendly films Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the summer.

    • Water balloons - my kids love these and they are super cheap entertainment.





  • Hit up the local library. Its nice and air conditioned and my kids love to pick out a few books or movies to bring home. Most libraries have a schedule of free story times and activities as well.

  • Kids Bowl Free- I havent tried this one yet but my boys love to bowl! Sounds like you just sign up and every week this site sends you free bowling passes for your kiddos.

  • Plant a garden together. Okay, this isnt free, but it is something you can do as a family and my kids love to pick the fruit and vegetables we grow in our backyard. (Bonus: they might actually eat something healthy!)


Does your family enjoy other cheap summer fun activities? If so, email me atmarketing@spokanefederal.comand put "Momcents" in the subject line. I'd love to hear your ideas.
