Keep Kids Entertained with Free Fun Activities

Blast boredom with these fun activities for kids

Are your kid’s bored? Do you need fun activities to keep them entertained? If you have kids you probably do. After all, it’s that time of year — school’s still out for some and they aren’t ready to go back but they’re bored. If you find yourself in this predicament, use these ideas for some family fun that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Free Bowling

Kids love to bowl. It’s fun for the kids and for the entire family too. Since kids love it so much, why not make time for it in your schedule? All you have to do is register online and pick a bowling alley near you.

Every Sunday, you’ll get an email with a coupon for two free games. If you don’t mind spending a little money, you can buy a family pass for $24.95. This let’s everyone in the family bowl two free games every day.


Kids love movies — going to the theater makes them extra special. Most of the theaters participating in the free or $1 movies show movies most kids have already seen. But that’s okay with kids and it’s okay because they get a trip to the theater.

Regal Cinemas Free Family Film Festival

Clearview Kid’s Club — Free movies for eight weeks.

Cinemark Summer Movie Clubhouse $1 movies for ten weeks.

Summer Parties

Kid activities don’t have to be expensive. Little kids miss seeing their friends during the summer. For a fun afternoon, print out some invitations, set up the sprinkler, kiddie pools, slip and slide, and break out the water guns. Kids love playing in the water with their friends. You can provide a few drinks and chips or ask everyone to bring a snack to share. Summer activities for kids that involve water are always a hit.

Backyard Camp Out

Borrow a couple of tents, have your child’s friends bring a sleeping bag, and order a pizza. You might not get a lot of sleep but the kids will have a blast and remember it for years to come.

With a little creativity, you can easily come up with ideas to keep your kids from getting the end-of-the-summer blues. Don’t finish the summer up with whiny kids. With just a little work and maybe a little bit of money, your kids can have a great time.
