$.50 to $1 movies - during the summer, Regal and Cinemark offer one or two weekday matinee specials per week.

Take a Hike - Several weekends a year, more than 100 national parks offer free admission - check for dates

Go bowling - Lanes nationwide are offering two free games to kids all summer.  Sign up to receive a voucher at

Hear a story - libraries have drop in story hour once a week, Pottery Barn Kids - free story time on Tuesday mornings

At Apple Camp (in Apple retail stores) kids ages 8-12 learn how to make their own film using iMovie software.  The 3-day workshop leads to a festival where campers can debut their flicks.
