We normally talk about traveling with kids (with or without Mommy) on this site. But the reality is that most families don’t have the time or money to travel all the time. So, here’s a great idea for family fun that won’t break the bank. With this special promo, kids bowl free all summer! There’s no cost or catch. Basically, bowling alleys know that an adult has to go with them and kids get hungry and thirsty, so that’s how they’ll make their money.
Bowling Is Good Family Fun
On Friday night, we took Scarlett to the “date night” at her school. Instead of leaving Timmy there also so Anna and I could have an adult date night, we had a “Timmy Date Night.” Ever since Scarlett was born a couple of years ago, Timmy hasn’t had the same attention as he did when was an only child. Anna and decided it would be a good idea to have “dates” with each kid by themselves every so often.
Timmy was extremely excited when he found out about our plans and given the choice between bowling and mini-golf, he picked bowling.
And you could just feel how happy Timmy and Mommy were after they both threw strikes!
After bowling a couple of games and sharing a pizza, we stopped for some ice cream to share at home after we picked up Scarlett from “date night.” We’re looking forward to taking Scarlett on our next bowling adventure!
Luckily, we found a kids bowl free all summer promotion where Timmy and Scarlett can bowl more often.
Kids Bowl Free All Summer
To sign up and have your kids bowl free this summer, click on KidsBowlFree.com and select your state. In California, there were 54 different bowling alleys available! And I found one that was really close to our house.
Check your state, and I’m sure there will be some great choices available for you and your family.
When you sign up, your kids bowl free all summer up to 2 games per day! The age requirements vary by bowling alley, but our bowling alley allowed children ages 15 and under to participate.
Each week, you’ll receive an email with your coupons. Just print them out and bring them with you to the bowling alley. It is that simple.
The Fine Print
Some bowling alleys charge for shoe rentals. So, consider buying your own if you’re going to bowl a lot. I saw several pairs of boys’ bowling shoes in the $20-$30 range on Amazon.
This year, the free bowling started in early June and kids bowl free all summer until September 3, 2017.
You do need to re-register again each year so your kids can bowl free all summer, so set a reminder on your calendar to register June 1 of next year.
Parents Aren’t Free, But There’s Still A Great Deal
It’s awesome that kids bowl free all summer, but you can’t send a 6 and 2-year-old to the bowling alley by themselves, right? That’s where the bowling alleys make some money. They know that parents will go with the kids. But, there’s an inexpensive way around that too!
Parents can also bowl each day with this promotion for a flat fee of $34.95. With this payment, you’ll also receive 2 free games of bowling per day, just like the kids.
If you use our referral link and the promo code “JULY5” you’ll get the Family Pack for only $29.95!
Not bad, right? Bowling a couple of games can easily set you back $10 a person (or more) for an adult. That means you can cover the cost of the Family Pack in just 3 visits (or quicker if both Mom & Dad go!).
The kids bowl free all summer promotion is pretty sweet. You may need to pay to rent bowling shoes and the occasional drink and snack, but that’s a cheap price to pay for some awesome family fun. I’ve signed up and we look forward to taking Timmy and Scarlett for some fun and laughter at the bowling alley this summer.
