June is full of lots of free activities, for children who are now out of school and asking, “What can we do today?”
The San Ramon Main Library hosts it’s summer reading kicked off with a decorating party on Monday. But there are numerous events to kick-off the start of our local libraries’ free summer reading program, so try to check out some of the free events offered over the next few weeks at the :
- Summer Movie Matinees, weekly on Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
- “Pajama Party,” from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday.
- “Bingo Bonanza,” 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on Saturday.
- “Andy Z,” 10:30 a.m to noon on Saturday, June 30.
At the Walnut Creek Libray on Monday, June 25, there is the “Images in Motion Puppet Party.”
As always, in Walnut Creek offers a free Saturday craft from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. On June 23, your child can make a summer inspired door hanger to celebrate the start of a new season and summer vacation. Get ready for the Fourth of July by making a star spangled music shaker on Saturday, June 30.
How about building a super-cool Madagascar 3 vehicle at your local Lowe’s Store on Sunday, June 24? There are still available spots open in Livermore and Concord for this free workshop. To register and reserve your spot, visit here.
This summer, Regal Cinemas in Dublin offers their summer movies each week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10:00. They feature G or PG films, and the cost is nearly free, at just $1. Space is limited, so get there a little bit early. Check to see what movies are playing at here.
Another nearly free activity for summer: bowling. Visit Kids Bowl Free here and register your child. Each day, your child can bowl two games for free at Castro Village Bowl or other participating locations. Last summer, my own family did this each week, and it only cost us $2.50 per child for shoe rental!
Whether you bowl, take in a movie, or hang out at the library, there are activities to entertain a wide range of children, and the price is right!
