FREE Summer Activities For Kids

Summer is the best time to get out and about and participate in all the activities that you may not have the opportunity to get to during the school year. If you are like my family, our schedules are so full of music lessons and other activities that we do not have much time for FUN activities. We try to select ONE FUN activity a week and the best part - - they are FREE!!

Here are some of the summer freebies that keep my children happy this summer.
