Free and almost free things to do this summer

What are your summer plans?  Ours is to relax, but also have some fun at a slower pace.  I am always looking for things that Miss V can do during the summer.

Miss V loves to read.  She participates in our county's summer reading program.  They give incentive prizes throughout the summer.  I do not know what they will be this year.

Books A Million has a summer reading program too.  Read any 6 books from their list and your child will receive a free Carl Hiaasen Backpack, while supplies last.

Barnes and Noble also has a summer program.  There's is read any 8 books and your child will receive a free book.

Another thing we sign up for is the Kids Free Bowling at AMF Lanes.  All you have to pay for is the shoe rental.  Miss V loves doing this with her friends.

Workshops at your local library!  Our county has such great programs through the whole summer for all different age groups.

Summer Movie Express from Regal Cinemas.  We loved doing this last summer.  You do have to get to the theater an hour or so before show time to wait in line.  We noticed that last year that towards the end of the summer the crowd changed from nice polite people to families that decided to cut in line and just plain disrespectful.  It kind of ruined it for us.

Miss V also loves doing crafts and science experiments. has some great ideas.

What are some of your favorite things to do in the summer.
