We've recently taken the kids bowling a couple times, and they both LOVE it!
I'm excited because this summer the two bowling alleys in town are both participating in the "kids bowl free" promo! Parent's don't, but you can buy an all summer family bowl pass for $24.95 and a shoe pass for the summer for $30...so on those really HOT days it'll be something fun to do!!
One summer, we participated in the Kids Bowl Free program (when we lived closer to a bowling alley than we do now)! It’s a great program, and if your child qualifies, they can register at participating bowling center for 2 free games a day this summer.
Check and see if there is one in the town you live in!
