Cheap & Cool Summer Activities

swimIn the last week, there have been a number of free - or cheap- summer activities that have come across my radar.  I thought I'd throw a few out there to get your minds churning on ways to keep your family occupied during the free time of summer!

*Community Pools:  We discovered our local community pool this summer.  They have sessions of 10-30 minute lessons for all swimming levels for $10 per child.  They also have a designated toddler time that is free.  Local organizations have partnered with the town pool to have pizza/free swim family nights over the summer too!  How great is that?!

*Museums: My parents had my niece for a week and discovered that they can check out a pass from their local library that got up to 4 people into the Boston Children's Museum for an extremely discounted rate.  You may want to see if your area has similar programs.

*Library Programs: Many local libraries will have story/activity times for a variety of age groups and most of the time, libraries are air conditioned!

This is only a few that have come up in my life in the last couple of weeks.  What other programs do you know of that are out there to help pass the summer?
