I just love it when companies are family friendly and give us fun things to do for FREE! Check out the list below, I know you'll find some great things to take your kids to! I'll add more as I come across them, and if you know anything free, even if it's just in your area, please post a comment below and I'll add it to the list. Thanks!
Free Factory Tours - across the USA, not only great for your own area, but also fun if you're taking a road trip!
Free or Reduced Price Arts & Culture Events - sponsored by Target.
Kids Bowl FREE
Home Depot FREE Kids Workshop - Your kids will love to build and create their own wooden work of art, and it's FREE! Offered the first Saturday of each month between 9am and noon.
Lowe's Build And Grow Program - Like Home Depot, Lowe's offers a fun free craft for kids too. Luckily they fall on different Saturdays.
Michaels Usually FREE Craft Workshops - Most are free, but very few require a very small priced supply cost.
FREE Crafts at Lakeshore Learning Store - another place similar to Michaels to take your kids to do fun free crafts!
FREE Family Movies at Regal Theaters - I love Regal for this! However, be aware the theater will be packed and much noisier than usual as it's family friendly and there will most likely be very little ones. They usually play movies that are not currently in theaters, but still usually good ones your kids will want to see.
Barnes and Noble Passport to Reading Program - School age kids earn a FREE book!
Borders Books Summer Reading Double Dog Dare - Kids 12 and under can earn a FREE book!
