Free Summer Family Activities
If you are looking for free summer family activities check with your local movie theatre. Where I live they show free family movies every Tuesday & Thursday at 10:00am. Today we went to see "Nim's Island". We had never gone to see it when it first came out so it was a great opportunity to do so. I have to say the movie was much better than I had thought...better than the previews.
Also the theatre collects canned food for the needy & if you bring in 2 cans of food per person, you receive a free kids drink & popcorn. So free movie & free concessions in exchange for canned food, not a bad deal.
We went with several friends & after the movie we went to eat lunch at Buffalo's Southwest Cafe (which happens to be right in front of our movie theatre). On Tuesdays kids eat free...no matter how many adults! We had nine kids & 5 adults & all nine of them ate free plus they had a very economical lunch menu for us. The food was great & the service was awesome!!! So check in your area for free movies & kids eat free deals & have a great day with your family!!
