It's time to sign up for the Kids Bowl Free program. My kids and I do this every summer and we LOVE it! There are so many times during the long summer break when it rains or it's just too stinkin' hot to do anything outside. Those are the days we head to the bowling alley. Often, I just let the kids bowl and I sit and read. It is bliss!!! My local bowling alley has lots of seating, bumpers for kids bowling, clean restrooms and a reasonably priced snack bar. Make sure you check out your own local place before signing up. But honestly, it's kind of a ‘no lose' situation. Even if you never go, it's free. So you haven't lost anything except the short time it takes to register.
The program gets you two free games for each registered child every day all summer long. Shoe rental is not included but that's generally not a huge cost.
Each location has specific times and days that this promotion is valid. Look for those on the sign up page or in a follow up email. Kids Bowl Free also offers an option where you can purchase unlimited summer bowling for up to 4 adults for a reduced fee. Registration is usually open to kids under age 15 but this limit may vary by location so make sure to double check when you sign up.
Some locations also offer school break specials to enrolled kids after the summer is over. Keep an eye out for those special deals and you may be able to entertain your kids all year round 🙂
You can save even more by purchasing your own bowling shoes.
