Now that kids are out of school…What do you do now?? You don’t want them sitting alone doing nothing…but, sending them out to summer camp or other activities costs so much money. I have your solution… I’ve found some fun family places that won’t break the bank!

If your kid is into bowling…Kids Bowl Free at Laurel Lanes in Plainville and Silver Lanes in East Hartford. All you have to do is  sign them up for this national program and your kids will receive two free games of bowling daily, all summer long.
