Kids Activties – Bowling

Bowling is a Great Activity for Kids

There are many bowling alleys that participate in a program called Kids Bowl Free .  Bowling is an activity that kids love! Many adults too.

We did this last year and really enjoyed it.  You can sign your kids up online and they can get two free games of bowling everyday all summer long!  Perfect if you live within walking distance from one of the participating lanes …that’s for sure!  You can check but I know last year I was able to buy a full family membership for $24.95 (I think) and that allowed the older kids and Dave and I to also bowl.  bowling

The bowling was during the day hours, not in the evenings, and I don’t think on the weekends either.  Their shoes also are not included.

At the bowling alley we were going to, we figured out that it was less expensive for us to buy them shoes if we planned on going several times throughout the summer.


It is designed to get the kids to love bowling, and keep them out of trouble.


When my older boys were young, they were in a bowling league and dearly loved it.  It was our weekly Saturday morning activity for a couple years.

We haven’t gotten the kids into a bowling league, they have other sports they are into. But it is a fun diverse activity.

We used to have a bowling alley right in our small town. But unfortunately it closed down last year. I think there were a lot of repairs needed and it was old, but great for birthday parties and the kids could be walking to it now ..if it was still there.

I love it when the kids get a strike or a great shot… you never know what kind of reaction you may get.  I wish you could have seen Alex’s full “victory dance”
