Free Bowling!

Looks like summer time has arrived!!  For me and a lot of you all out there this means that we have to find ways to keep our kids occupied and having fun.

My FAVORITE is free bowling offered by many bowling alleys across the nation.  We’ve participated at the alley near our house for the last 2 years and loved it.

Get 2  Free Bowling Games per kid everyday all summer!  You can also grab a pass for up to 4 adults to play all summer for $24.99.

The only catch is that you still have to pay to rent shoes, which can be upwards of $4.  I recommend actually purchasing bowling shoes; you can find them pretty cheap if you keep your eyes open (think ebay).

Before you think your kids are too young… my girls started bowling at 2 1/2 and think its loads of fun.  Bumpers and a little ramp make it where most any age can play.

They have already started sending out the coupons this week, so you can sign up and play tomorrow!

(Thanks Amy!)

      This is wonderful!!! I love this idea!

      Awesome deal… too bad my baby is 6 months old and can't bowl yet haha!! Keep your eyes out though… a lot of bowling places have deals on their websites all the time. My mom goes to US Play for free with my other sisters all the time and they aren't on this particular list! Keep your eyes open for bowling lanes in your area or check their websites!

      Does anyone know if this is valid for weekends and evenings? I know it says everyday but that is very general. I'm just wondering if my Husband will be able to join us when he's not working. Thanks.

        Nevermind, I found the days and hours.

      Do you have to have children to get the family pass? My husband and I would love the deal (but don't want to have to have a bundle of joy to get it).

        I just signed my kids up and bought the family pass. It says you have to use the family pass with your kids. So – I guess that means you have to sign kids up to get it.

    • We did this program last summer and it was great! The kids really loved bowling. I don't know if all bowling alleys are the same but mine only charged us a $1 per shoe rental. They told me it was part of the program.

    • I am so sad, they don't list our area. Sounded fun though!
