EEK! I can barely wait – SUMMER. It’s a beautiful thing – for both me and my kids. Although we’re plenty busy with road trips, camping, summer camp and making sure we have plenty of time to do “nothing” at home we still like to throw in the extra local community activity or two if the kids want to get out. Here’s a list of all sorts of free or inexpensive things to do with your kids this summer!
