“Mom, I’m bored.”
These are words moms dread hearing over and over during summer vacation.
When it’s too hot to run around at the park, and you don’t want to spend a bunch of money, what do you do?
Thanks to a wonderful program called Kids Bowl Free, your kids can bowl 2 free games every day all summer long. That’s a lot of bowling!
This summer I decided my 2 preschoolers were ready for the challenge, so I signed them up for the program. Did I mention it was free? (I love that!)
So I loaded them up in the car and we headed off to check it out.
It has been a while since I’ve bowled. Things sure have changed!
The lady at the desk was super helpful. Pretty soon our lane was outfitted with bumpers and 8 pound bowling balls. Once we were decked out in our bowling shoes (just $2 to rent), we were set to give it a go.
Little Peanut went first. She gave that ball a mighty shove…
Can you tell she was proud of knocking down the pins?
After rolling the balls down a few times, the kids decided to try the ramp.
Yes, I said ramp. Who would have thought that they would have a ramp for preschoolers to roll the ball down? I mean, how neat is that? It makes bowling easy and fun for the whole family!
And you know what?
I found out my youngest is a bowling natural! In his first game, the four-year old got 4 spares and the only strike between us!
The whole place was full of moms with kids bowling — so great to see!
We will definitely be bowling a lot this summer… After all, I have to redeem myself!
See that? He got 97 to my 93… And that was with me keeping the bumpers on when I bowled!
Want to bowl with your kids? If you plan to bowl more than a couple times, save money and get the family pass, which is good for up to 4 adults, for just $24.95. Remember, kids are free all summer long as long as you sign them up!

As mentioned previously, this is a sponsored post on behalf of Kids Bowl Free. I received a family pass in exchange for writing this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
We love bowling! Looks like you guys had a ball.
Oh, we did have a ball! 😉
This is great! I love the free bowling program. I have done this the last 3 years with the kids. Prob will this year too. Great post girl! 🙂
This is our first year, and we had so much fun! I love having the chance to spread the word about such a neat program for kids.
I hope you have tons of fun! Mine keep asking when we can go back again — this time we are bringing Daddy so he can see what it’s like to get your butt kicked by the 4 year-old! 🙂
