What if I told you that you and your family could spend time together indoors, in the air conditioning, being active, and enjoying good old-fashioned family fun…oh yeah, and the best part, what if I told you it was FREE!
Oh, and did I mention there are some pretty rad shoes involved? Oh Yeah!!
If you hadn’t guessed by now I am referring to bowling! Remember that thing you did when you were a kid? At least in my case I haven’t bowled in eons. But I always had fond memories of hanging out with family and friends, laughing, and having a great time.
So when I received an email that stated Kids Bowl Free I jumped at the opportunity!
What is Kids Bowl Free?
Kids Bowl Free is an amazing brand – designed by bowling centers to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure, and fun way for kids to spend time this summer. Parents you can sign up your children to receive two free games for up to six children per day (that is a value of over $500 per kid…now that is a fabulous deal!). It is really simple, just click here, find your state, then locate your city or surrounding city, and then click on the bowling alley listed to sign up each kiddo. I know what you’re thinking….but what about mom and dad? They also have family packs for the whole summer that are $24.95. More info: http://www.kidsbowlfree.com/questions.php
Within minutes of signing up my kiddos and receiving the family pack I had an email with our coupons for the week! Talk about convenient! And moments later I was telling all my friends, including all our playgroup friends, and setting up dates to go bowling.
Here are pictures from our latest bowling trip. And yes, your toddler can bowl too! I had reservations about our 2-1/2-year-old bowling but they actually had bowling shoes (toddler and pre-K shoes are Velcro), an extremely light-weight ball (it is so light it bounces lol! She did drop it once and no one got hurt…it bounced), there is this contraption that helps roll the ball down the alley, and of course there are bumpers. Thus with all the nifty contraptions for the little ones to bowl my toddler totally scored higher than I, ha-ha!
We had so much fun I can’t wait to go back this week! Kids Bowl for Free is also a great way for dad to spend quality time with kiddos why mom gets a couple of hours to herself…hint-hint. Also a great way for parent/child to bond just the two of them….get a tween in a bowling alley and they will eventually start talking around the 7th frame. Or a great way for extended family to get in on the fun too! Grab grandma, grandpa, order a pizza and watch some memories in the making!
Have you taken your kiddos bowling? Do you have fond memories of bowling when you were a child?
Disclosure: I was given the family bowling pack, a value of $24.95 in order to complete this review. All opinions expressed are my own.
