Looking for boredom busters for the kids this summer? I’ve rounded up a fabulous find of kid activities that’s sure to beat the boredom and, best of all, they’re FREE!
Lowe’s Build & Grow Kids can build something awesome at Lowe’s! These FREE clinics are held on Saturdays @ 10am. It’s a perfect way to get the kids comfortable with basic toolkits and they usually go home with a few extra freebies, too!
Home Depot’s Kids Workshop Held on the first Saturday of every month, these workshops offer kids all sorts of fun building projects from handmade gifts to a hand built lawn mower! Kids also receive other freebies just for participating.
Let’s Get Digital!
Apple Camp for Kids Here’s a 3 day session where kids can learn (for FREE) how to create their own films using iMovie. Campers can then share their work at the Apple Camp Film Festival– way cool! I wouldn’t mind taking this one myself!
Microsoft YouthSpark Microsoft also has a summer camp where kids can choose from one of the following programs: design games, learn game coding, smart photo taking, or smart movie making. The camps are in-store, so check to see if there is a site location near you.

I actually have no ideas left. I’m hoping to get to do something special with them though, but I have to figure out how to make it happen.
