I am a married Mom of 3: Boy (4 yo), Boy (2 yo) and Girl (11 mo old). I founded MomsOutLoud.com in 2008, which is now DFWMama.com. (Basically, I decided I liked Rachael and her team so well I wanted to join it!) Now I'm here, writing about what I know and love - raising kids in North Texas.

38 Free (or Cheap!) Family Activities in DFW this Summer

It’s our 3rd year of creating this list of things to do with your kids in DFW, and first we want to thank all you Moms who have used it, told your friends about it, and requested it for 2010!  We are all looking for cheap, free (if possible!), fun activities for our kids, and the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area has dozens. Now that our children are (or are almost!) out of school for the summer, we thought it’d be the right time to publish the best list of things to do with your kids this summer.

Oh, yeah – it’s now bigger.  But still, nothing over $5 per person!

And formatted on 2 pages to download, print, and hang on your refrigerator.  Or put in your purse.  Or your car.  Or wherever else you’ll be looking for inspiration when your kids say they’re bored this summer.  The list includes free museum admission days, free recent run movie schedules at your favorite theaters, “hidden gems” of indoor fun across the metro, and other activities that just may inspire you to get out your calendar to plan some outings.

Click the link and download the list now, or see the list below (as it looks in the download–warning, reading glasses are required so we highly recommend downloading the file).

38 Free or Cheap for Kids Summer in DFW

Have fun, Moms!

    I commend the fact that you are continuing to let patients and caregivers get their cards. This will allow patients and/or their caregivers to grow their own medical marijuana at least until dispensaries become available. It would be a sad day if the federal government doesn’t come up with some dispensary guidelines to help patients.
