This weekend, we spring forward! The days are getting longer, the weather is (sort of) getting warmer and summer break will be here before you know it.

The kids live for summer break, but as a parent...you know what you're in for! Messy house 24/7? It's a given. Spending hours in the kitchen making snacks? Check! (Why do these kids never get full?!) Not being able to use "because it's a school night" as an excuse for sending them to bed? The worst!

Let's not forget that summer is expensive for parents. The last thing you want them doing is sitting home staring at their tablets all day, but finding ways to keep them stimulated cost money.  Summer Camp, the Western Idaho Fair or a day at Roaring Springs? Your kids aren't making money, so it's up to you to pay for all those fun excursions.

What if I told you, there's a way for you to take your kids bowling...for free...every single day during summer break? It's a program called "Kids Bowl Free" where bowling centers all over the Treasure Valley let kids bowl two games free every day! All you have to do is pay for their shoe rentals.

Registration for the program at Big Al's, Meridian Bowling Lanes and Pinz for kids 15 and under.  Caldwell Bowl, Westy's and Emerald Lanes are all listed as participants as well.  If you want to pick those lanes to take your kids to, you can sign up for a registration reminder when sign-ups start through KidsBowlFree.com.
