Family: Free bowling for kids this summer

You can only watch so many movies at home before the kids (and you) are raring to leave the house.

A fun, air-conditioned option for kids is taking place this summer in bowling alleys across the country — the Kids Bowl Free program. The program allows children (whose ages do not exceed the limit by each participating bowling center) to bowl two free games a day. Participating bowling centers in metro Atlanta include Decatur and Stockbridge. Visit Kids Bowl Free for more details.

Now the real question is: bumpers or no bumpers?

We signed up for this! I had planned to take the kids every day. However, after paying almost $10 for shoe rental (for 2 children) the first time we went, I decided to make it a special occasion thing. I certainly cannot afford $10 for shoes every day of the week.

We signed up for this, too. To save the money on shoe rental, we bought our own bowling shoes @ $30 a pair. After six bowling trips, the shoes are paid for, and we go more often.
