Summer is not far away and it is already time to start thinking about activities for our children to do. For many children, summer signifies sleeping in and spending the remaining waking hours on electronics playing video games, watching television, texting and anything else that can be done while in a reclined position. If figuring out ways to keep your children physically active during the summer months is challenging, I have got some ideas for you and both are free.
Kids Bowl Free and Kids Skate Free are two individual summer programs that provide an opportunity for children to get up, get out, exercise and have some fun. Children registered in the bowling program receive two free games per day at the participating center. The skating program allows participants to skate free during specified hours using issued program passes.
Both bowling and skating can be enjoyed by children of all skill levels from the first-time player or skater to the more skilled in either sport. Participation in one or both programs will provide regular exercise, help your child burn calories and give them an alternative to being sedentary during summer vacation.
There are several locations throughout the United States participating in both programs with centers and rinks across the country. You must register with the locations you want to use. Below is a list of participating bowling centers and skating rinks in Tennessee. Check the participating location to learn the days your child may bowl and skate for free, as well as the age of child that may participate in the programs. Most centers only cater to young children. A skate or bowling shoe rental fee may apply.
