First week of SUMMER VACATION and already at 9 am I get to hear “I’m BORED!” from my 10 yr old. She is a child that has a hard time playing by herself. She has to be doing something every minute of the day I swear. She wears me out! She is very creative and needs attention. I’m not trying to be mean or a bad mom just my reality. My question is how am I going to keep her BUSY! Plus I’m a broke mama so need to find FUN FREE adventures. Doing my research I found a couple of things we will definitely do!
1.Every Day Free Bowling
I know we will go bowling- they love that! Kids can go bowling for FREE every day- Sign up HERE. We can take the bus to the bowling alley. We can do this on Tuesday and Thursdays.
2. Crafting at Michaels~
Sahara will love this and we can ride our bikes.~ Thank you 510Families~ Michael’s stores offer 2-hour craft sessions for $2 each– btw so many cool ides for 510 Kids/Families! 7 weeks of classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday’s. LOVE IT!
3. The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive ~
Start the day in the BAM/PFA galleries making art with artists. Play with one hundred pounds of clay inour gallery dedicated to involving children in the artistic process. Create with collage and stamps in a workshop focused on color, inspired by our new exhibition Explore the galleries with tours specially designed for families. And at 2 p.m. tap your toes to a cappella ensemble SoVoSó’s irresistible mix of jazz, gospel, and world music. Family Day culminates at the PFA Theater with a special free film program, Take Aways, the first of a four-part series presenting animated shorts adapted from beloved children’s books. Followed by a reading and show-and-tell by local children’s book author/ illustrator Christy Hale (The East-West House, Dreaming Up). Free tickets available at the box office beginning at 2:30.
