If you have a library card, you are eligible to check out passes to a variety of bay area museums and attractions. Sometimes the pass is a discount – kids free with adult admission, and sometimes they are completely free. It’s worth it to look at the list and dates and try out a new place. 

During the hot summer months we love to go bowling! Diablo Bowl in Concord participates in the Kids Bowl Free program. You can sign up your children to receive 2 free games of bowling every day, all summer long! For $25, you can buy a family pass that gets the two free games for FOUR adults. These adults can include babysitters too. Look for us this summer – we’ll be the ones in the snazzy shoes soaking up the AC!

cinemark-summer-movieLast, Cinemark does a Summer Movie Clubhouse with previously run movies for $1 every week over the summer. You can buy the whole package for $10! All of the shows start at 10 am, and it will be full of kids. If your child is a first time moviegoer, his or her chatter will blend right in! I will be at “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” on July 15 in Walnut Cree – look for us!

Happy Summer!
