Once you register, Kids Bowl Free emails you coupons each week for your kids to bowl 2 free games each. You may have to rent bowling shoes for them, depending on the alley and whether your kids have them. There are reasonably priced season shoe rental passes available at the alleys.

Barnes & Noble has a summer reading program for kids entering grades 1-5:  if they read 8 books, fill out the very simple "reading journal" and a parent/guardian signs off, the kids can turn them in, in-store, for a free book (free titles are listed on the reading journal itself). One free book per child.

Check out your local library. Libraries around the country are participating in a "Dig Into Reading" summer reading challenge.

Our local branch (NY state) offers kids of all ages, up to entering grade 5, a prize for every two age appropriate, checked out library books they read. The two kids who read the most books at the contest's end get special prizes (last year's prizes were e-readers). Details will vary for each participating library.
