We go to the pool or local lake, picnic at the park, free movie at our local theater, visit the library.

At home we play board games. I just made a jar full of boredom busters (I found it on line) that we pick activities from to do.

I homeschool year round, so we've been doing school, and then in the late afternoons/evenings we've been going to the pool.

We've been pinning ideas and doing them at home this summer.  It's been a lot of fun actually, and fun to see what they kids are interested in.  Here's the link to my Summer board.  http://pinterest.com/educatorsspinon/summer-projects-to-make-and-do/

Plus we've been hosting a Virtual Book Club Summer Camp Online. It's free and filled with lots of ideas and a few fun giveaways for participants.

Movie theaters can offer free movies (weekdays/early morning), local state museums are free (sometimes), local national/local parks (hiking, bird watching), look online for awesome local playgrounds in nearby cities, and our zoo membership never gets boring.

We have a pool. We sent our son to the YMCA summer camp (which is neither free nor cheap). We go to the splash pad at the campground in our city. Our children just finished softball/baseball so it hasn't been a very boring summer for us. They already go back to school August 12th so summer is almost over for them.
