More Freebies!

I am just so amazed at all of the free things we can do with our children this summer!
This Saturday is free ice cream day at Friendly's!
~Thanks Rebecca!!

Also, if your kids love to read (or even if they don't, this would be a great way to get them to start!), below are a list of very rewarding summer reading programs! My personal fave is the HEB deal!

Barnes and Noble Reading Program = Free BooksBarnes & Noble has a summer reading program for kids in grades 1 through 6. If they read 8 books, they can get a free book.

Borders and Waldenbooks are offering summer reading deals, too, though not free. During the Kids Reading Challenge, if kids ages 12 & under read 8 books and fill out a form, they can redeem it to buy one selected item for $4.99.

Free HEB T-shirtIf your kids reads 10 books, they get a free HEB shirt. Go here for more details.

Also, I know I had posted the Apple iPod camp on here previously, but as it seems, the camps are currently full here in Richmond :(

Don't fret! There are still a few other free camps your kids can participate in:

Bass Pro Shops Free Summer Camp for KidsEvery Saturday and Sunday from noon-6pm May 30-July5th Bass Pro Shops offers a free craft activity! For more info click here.

Home Depot Free How-to ClinicsThese workshops for kids are available on the first Saturday of every month between 9 am and 12 noon at all Home Depots. Go here to find out about upcoming workshops.

Lowe's Build and Grow ClinicsLike Home Depot, Lowe's also offers workshops for kids. Kids can make a mini putting green for dad or a pirate ship! To sign up for the free clinics go here. Unlike Home Depot, you do have to register online first.
