Summer is officially here! Longer days, warm sunshine, and the kids out of school means there will be more time to spend as a family at events and activities. Sometimes it can be tough to find free things to do with kids during the week, or family-friendly activities on weekends. So I’ve made a list of free kids activities and events to check out this summer.
