Kids Skate Free Program – Fun Summer Activity for Kids

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

 

We recently reminded you about the Kids Bowl Free program  & let you how much we love this program, but did you know there is a Kids Skate Free program? They have now offered this program for several years. At this time, there is only 1 participating skating rink that I could find in the Northwest, in Puyallup, WA at Tiffany’s Skate Inn.

Tiffany’s Skate Inn will be  offering 2 FREE skating passes a week to children 12 & younger.

If you’d like to see this program come to your local skating rink, the Kids Skate Free program actually has a letter you can print off to bring to your local rink & share with them about the program. Chances are that they most likely have not heard of it as it’s still a pretty new program & is just slowly expanding to more rinks around the country.

Details about the Kids Skate Free program at Tiffany’s Skate Inn in Puyallup:

  • Tiffany’s will be offering 2 FREE skating passes a week to kids 12 & younger thru the Kids Skate Free program.
  • The passes will include admission for each child & you will need to pay the $1/pair rental for regular skates.
  • The Kids Skate Free passes will be sent by email on Sunday evenings and they will include the dates for the 2 skating times during that week.
  • You’ll need to make sure to check your email each week for the passes and times for the free skate times.

I’ve been signed up for this program for several years and actually have received the Kids Skate Free passes all year long – not just during the summer & it’s a great way to save at the roller skating rink!

 


Washington State Spring Fair Starts Today – 4/16 – LOT’s Of Free Fun This Year

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

 Washington State Spring Fair 2

Just a reminder that the Fair starts Today, and its the FREE Day for kids!!!

The Washington State Spring Fair starts today, April 16th and runs through April 19th. It’s a 4-day fair, similar to the regular fair, only scaled back a little.

Opening Day is always a great day to go, as they offer free admission for all youth. All kids ages 0-18 get FREE admission today at any any Fair gate! No coupon required. The Fair opens at 2pm today, to kick off the spring fair!

You will also find this ride discount available today: Get six rides for just $17, today only! Available at any ride ticket booth on site. Plus, ride the Extreme Scream for just $7.50.

To be honest, my family prefers the Spring Fair. With young kids especially, it’s a great alternative. There is still plenty to do and explore, but the crowds are somewhat smaller (at least they have been in past years) and so we are able to enjoy the fair at a pace that is more comfortable to us.

This year there are MANY free things available for the kids to enjoy (the whole family too). Here are a list of some of the best freebies you can expect to find at this years Spring Fair::

  • FREE Parking at the Spring Fair! (I love this one, as it makes it convenient to get there)
  • TotSpot area - Free activities including indoor play activities for younger kids, like Ag-Ventureland, the interactive Let’s Pretend Show, and FREE face painting for kids 12 and under!
  • FREE KidZone (including Free Face Painting for Kids 12 and under) & great exhibits. You can view the activity schedule for Kid Zone here.
  • Brads World Reptile Show – Free activity;  See, touch and learn about captive raised turtles, frogs, lizards, snakes and insects from the near and far places of our world. Science artifacts, nature videos, hatching snake eggs, parrots and even an alligator are included in this unique exhibit.
  • Free Entertainment! There are many free entertainment options including Pig Races, a JR. Rodeo, a choir festival and more!

One of the free entertainment options is called Kids Pretend. This is a small stage over near Kiddyland. There is a tent set up with plenty of dress up costumes and a small set. My kids did this last year and it was a great break time. My husband and I were able to sit in a covered area while the kids played and played. They then got to put on a small show for us, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. When we visited, this area was not crowded at all (which was part of what was so nice about it). That may be different this year, but its still a great stop for those with young children.

There are also many opportunities to save on admission to this years (2015) Spring Fair:

  • Kids 5 and Under are always FREE

Kids Free Day:

Kids (0-18) get in FREE on opening day  – Thursday April 16th from 2pm – 10pm. They recommend that you bring a donation of a non-perishable food item for the Puyallup Food Bank.

Plus Thursday, April 16, buy six rides for just $17 at any ride ticket booth. Includes all Funtastic ride and games.* No coupon necessary to redeem offer. You can ride the Extreme Scream all day Thurs for $7.50

Military Appreciation Day – Friday April 17th:

Military members gate admission is FREE on Friday, April 11. Who qualifies:
All active, reserve, and retired military and National Guard and their dependents, plus disabled veterans receive FREE gate admission on Friday, April 19 with valid military ID at any Fair gate.

Fred Meyer or Safeway or Online or South Hill Mall, for discount prices (buy tickets ahead of time):

  • Adult tickets are $7.50
  • Student Tickets are $6.50

Discount tickets include a Ride Saver Coupon to purchase any* 6 rides for $17, up to 30% savings! 

Ok, here is my all time favorite money saving tip for the Puyallup Fair….Splurge on a scone. For under $2 (at least in years past), you can get a real treat – and trust me, that is a bargain when it comes to food and the fair!

What are your favorite money saving tips for The Fair?

Kids Bowl Free – Sign up Now for 2 FREE Kids Bowling Passes A Day All Summer Long

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

One of our favorite summer programs is back again this year – Kids Bowl Free is once again offering 2 FREE bowling games per child for every day this summer. This program is available for 2 FREE games per day all summer for up to 6 children per family.  They work with participating bowling centers all over the country to provide this free program for families & it’s such a great opportunity to spend some time together with the whole family on a day when you need a break from the sun  or need an indoor activity for a rainy day.

The Kids Bowl Free program will be starting up at different times depending on which location you choose. I just checked my local Daffodil Bowl in Puyallup and it looks like the program runs from April 17- September 7th, with bowling times available every day & time during the week. But that will vary by location, so make sure to check your location to see when it will start up.

Once free bowling starts for your area, you’ll start receiving the FREE bowling passes each week in your email. {Make sure to check ages for kids, too, as every bowling center will have a different age requirement for the free passes.}

How it Works:

  • Head to the Kids Bowl Free website & register your kids for the program. Even if you have been signed up each year, you will need to re-register them for the free bowling passes again this year.
  • Once you’ve signed up, click on your state to see the participating location near you & when they will start the program.
  • You will then start receiving emails at the start of the week (I think I always received them on Sundays) & you can print off the coupons to head into the bowling alley to get your 2 FREE games per child.
  • You will need to pay for shoe rental unless you have your own bowling shoes for your kids (maybe check thrifty stores to get your own and save here). And if you want to bowl with them, you will need to pay for your admission & shoes.

4 Member Family Pass for $24.95 :

Kids Bowl Free is also offering their special Family Pass again this year, which is a fantastic deal if you think you’ll be hitting up the bowling alley several times this summer with your kids’ free passes. You pay just $24.95 for up to 4 family members to get 2 FREE bowling games a day all summer, too (so you could have your teens on the pass, too). I just checked my local bowling alley & each game costs $4 (weekdays) or $5 for weekends. So, even if it were just my husband & I who bowled with our kids on 3 separate weekend days during the summer, we’d already be paying $30, $5 more than what the Family Pass costs for the entire summer for 4 family members. Definitely a good deal if you think you’ll be bowling a few times this summer with your kids!

How many of you have taken advantage of the Kids Bowl Free program the past few years & what did you all think of it?

Regal Summer Movie Express – $1 Movies All Summer Long

Regal Entertainment Group is back with their  Summer Movie Express for participating Regal Cinemas, United Artists, & Edwards Theaters for this summer. It’s still a few months away, but they have released their schedule of movies, so we wanted to share that with you now.

They will feature 9 weeks of kids movies, rated G or PG, for just $1 on Tuesday or Wednesday mornings at 10am. You can see the movies shown & the order on the Regal website.

The start times will vary with your location depending on when school gets out for the summer – I just looked up the start times for WA & OR locations & it looks like most of them start June 23rd, but for those in different parts of the country where your kids get out of school early, the start times may be quite a bit earlier.

Find a participating location near you, along with the start time.  It’s a great way to first expose your kids to the movies if you have little ones & don’t want to pay full price to see if they’ll last thru the movie!
