Did You Know That Kids Can Bowl For Free?

Be Active As a Family For Next To Nothing

I picked up my kids from school today and chatted with a few other parents, as I like to do. (Being self-employed means that I take any adult social interaction that I can get.) One of the Dads mentioned that there was a website we should all check out —

I like the word "free" and when I got home I looked up the site.

A bowling alley twenty minutes from our house is one of the participating alleys and I signed my kids up. I also spent the $24 for me and my husband (and my brother)(Best Uncle Ever) to be covered from now until September.

We haven't bowled much as a family, mainly because it's cheaper to take the dogs for a walk or go for a hike. Now that we can bowl for free, it's time to show my kids the mad skills I learned when I was in a bowling league in middle school. (I was the epitome of cool, as is evidenced by that last sentence.)

Do you have any links to free activities that you want to share with the rest of us? We'd love it if you would.

Here's a great round-up of places kids can eat free in Canada! (You can thank me later...)
