Fun for You & Summer Freebies for your Kids!!!

Got a busy day ahead! I'm hosting preschool graduation tomorrow, working on the finishing touches.
But wanted to share two things with you quick...
First, are you pinning yet? I'm talking about Pinterest here!
This is my new absolute favorite thing in the world!
 If you're not familiar with it, let me quickly explain.
Pinterest is an online idea bulletin board. You create the theme of your board and then any time you see something online that you want to store in your "that's a great idea, I should try that binder" you just hit the pinterest button, place it on the board you want, and then there it is! Nicely stored and organized on your computer. No more loose pieces of paper lying around, or notes and drawings scribbled on the back of receipts to lose. Plus you can glean off of other people's great finds as well, sharing is caring after all.
If you want to give it a go, leave me a comment with your email and I'll send you over an invite!
If you have an account already you can find me at (cgcrafter).
Second, my good friend sent me over an email last night with a link to a great summer freebie.
2 free games of bowling everyday all summer for your kidlets!
Head on over to http://www.kidsbowlfree.com/ to see if a bowling alley in your area is participating.
I signed up all 5 of my munchkins. We won't go everyday, but it will be a fun thing to have available to us!

You can also pick up a family pass
(good for up to 4 adults) for a great price as well if you want to bowl too, it's also good all summer!
Okay, one more summer freebie quick. Check out your local Lowe's and Home Depot's Kid's Clinics.
They are held on Saturday mornings most often, but are totally free (you register ahead of time for Lowe's, not sure for HD). Your kids get to build some really fun things, and learn some basic tool handling at the same time.
We are heading to Lowe's this weekend to make a wood bi-plane!
The really cool part, not only is the kit free but they get and apron and eye safety goggles as well.
They can't wait!
Have a great Tuesday!
