More Free Summer Activities for Kids

Here are some additional free activities that weren't shared in the earlier post, Free Activities for our Four Year Old:

  • Summer Reading Program - The local library has a summer reading program where kids can earn prizes for reading books. Our four and half year old daughter is very excited and is motivated to read one of her instructional books each night. She has already read enough books to earn her first prize, which she collected yesterday.

  • Home Depot's Kids Workshop - On the first Saturday of every month, Home Depot has a wood craft kit project for kids starting at 9AM. It's a first come, first served event, although I've never seen them run out of kits. The projects take about 15 to 30 minutes, with a parent's help.

    To note, the workshop is offered year round, with themed projects for various holidays. In May, 2009, the project was a flower pot holder for Mother's day. The June, 2009, project was supposed to be an organizer for Dad. However, a birdhouse was substituted instead.
  • Our daughter has enjoyed both of the programs and looks forward to participating.
