Free and Cheap Summer Activities for Kids 2015

My kids were both done with school last Thursday, so our summer break has officially begun! With the cooler temps and some minor health issues over the past month to deal with, I think that my brain is still in denial that break is here.

One of my favorite things about summer is all of the great Free and Cheap Summer Activities for Kids that are available in Central Ohio. I had no idea how great of a park system we had until my kids were born and we started exploring! Not to mention most movie theaters offer $1 (or discounted) movies, the local libraries and Barnes & Noble offer great summer reading programs, some local bowling alleys offer FREE bowling…and so much more!

While we do pay for a Zoombezi Bay/Columbus Zoo membership and 1-2 camps per girl each summer, we offset those expenses by taking advantage of tons of freebies and discounted events.

You don’t have to live in Central Ohio to take advantage of great summer freebies for kids – many of these programs are national!

If your are looking for information on Free and Cheap Summer Activities that you can do with your kids, including FREE Bowling, FREE Summer Reading Programs, $1 Movies and MORE, check out my most recent posts here.

I will be adding activities as they become available. If you know of activities that you would like for me to add to my list, please leave a comment on this post.
