June Top 10 Freebies: School's Out Freebies

Every month I list my favorite Top 10 freebies.
School's letting out this month so this month's freebie theme is "School's Out Freebies".

 As a working Mom, my kids who are 6 and 4 will spend most of their summer week days at a fun summer camp close to our house.  Our goal for them is to be outside enjoying nature, playing kids games, swimming, overall to be a kid in a safe environment.  Summer camp is by no means cheap and even if you are a stay at home Mom trying to entertain kids who have spent the majority of the year in a structured environment can both be costly and frustrating for everyone concerned.  So here I list some fun free summer activities - bookmark this post and refer back often. 
1. Go to the Library
You'd be amazed how much of what the kids learned at school during the academic year is lost during the summer, so encourage your kids to read during the summer and spend the day at the library.  Here are some ideas for the library:
i) A million and one books for the kids to be entertained with
ii) check out some DVD's or games
iii) Check out the free summer activity schedule at the library
iv) free air conditioning to keep you all cool
2. Free Reading Programs
Click here for seven summer reading programs that have cool free incentives.
3. Free Movies

Click here for seven ways to get free movies this summer.
4. Free Attractions
i) Search the free attractions directory and find something local to your area
ii) Check out your local community/church calender
iii) If you are a Bank of America cardholder then you can enter some museums for free when you show your card.  Click here for more information.

5. Free Play
Find 10 free and easy ways to entertain the kids this summer here
6. Free Bowling
Kidsbowlfree - 2 free bowling all summer long

Find restaurants where kids eat for free

 8. More Free Food
Grow your own vegetable garden - not only does this teach your kids about where vegetables come from but the responsibilities involved in growing your own free food.

9. Create a "summer buddy program."
Call around your Mommy network for play dates and friends to share in new activities and stave off boredom.

10. Surf the internet
Find fun learning and interactive games at, and - we love Starfall.

Happy Memorial Day

Kidz Bop 19

You can now snag over 1,500 albums for just $5/each
What a cheap and quick way to fill up those iPods.
My kids are soooo into Kids Bop but you know what the funny thing is me too.  I drop the kids off at school and rather than switching to the radio I leave it on and sing along ; )
Be sure to check them out – and definitely take a look at the $5 children’s albums – there are some great ones: Laurie Berkner Band, Yo Gabba Gabba, Imagination Movers, Kidz Bop and so many more!
(I also noticed Taylor Swift’s Speak Now for $5 – there are so many to choose from!)

This sale ends 5/31/11.

Thanks Mama Cheaps
