FREE & Low-Cost Things to Do In Your Area for Summer & Family Fun!

Hi, Everyone!

If you did not know already, I head up a local homeschool group in our area. I was making weekly updates on our site today with FREE and low-cost summer and family things to do in our area for our members when I came across many sites that could benefit many families nationwide.

I was excited to sign the Pop 5 up for FREE bowling and skating in our area, as well, as get some great dates on cool $1 summer movies at Regal Cinemas across the nation.  I also found some sites for kids meal deals or “kids eat free.”  Now, who wouldn’t want to save a little and have great fun doing it?

Therefore, I have compiled a list of websites for you to browse and check things out in your area.


  • (look up indoor and outdoor activities in your area by state)
  • A guide to fun activities for the family, kids events, restaurants for kids and families and more in your local area. Find events, outdoor activities, entertainment, parties, schools, and other fun family.
  • Breezy Picnic Grounds Waterslides offers fun and relaxation in Douglas, MA with special packages for youth groups, birthdays, and business outings.
  • Resources and information about bicycling with children. Includes tips for long-term family travel.


  • Movies: – $1 Summer Movies for 9 weeks throughout the summer
  • Bowling:
  • Skating:
  • More than 101 travel games, Fun road trip activities, and Printable Games to play in the car when traveling with kids.



  • Child ID customized temporary safety tattoos perfect for family travel, vacation and activities with kids, SafetyTat keeps parents and children connected. SafetyTat reads, If Lost Please Call, and does the talking for a lost child.

PLEASE feel free to post any additional site you may have found in your areas so that others can be blessed by them too!

Have an amazing and fun summer with your family!

Your friend,



About Laurie Popovich, Pops of Life

Hi! So, happy you stopped by. Stick around while I tell you a little bit about me and my journey. I’m a daughter to Spanish parents and a sister, too! That means I love family, hugs, to share my 2 cents, music, dancing, flavorful foods & coffee. I’m a wife, twice to the same man, in a thrice redeemed marriage. I love deeply because I know no other way and it has filled my life with hope. I’m a believer of the impossible. I’m a mom of 5 beautiful and full of life blessings; but was only supposed to have one. You see, I had cancer; given 6 months to live when our first and daughter was 2. They’re a product of the impossible. I’m a homeschool mom who didn’t think she could teach: first, at all then, at different levels, different styles. I teach in what in my mind was the impossible. I’ve walked through many trials; some that have taken my life in many aspects, including literally. I have overcome the impossible. I’m a spiritual sister and friend. I love to share and encourage others in life to live the impossible. I’m a daughter of the King; a powerful Creator and Redeemer of the impossible – me - and I can be impossible  I love to…love people…encourage others…being a student of life and the impossible …laugh at myself… journal my hopes & dreams & pray to make them a reality… journal my fears & seek to turn them into victories…eat chocolate…cook for many & watch them enjoy the food & fellowship…go against the grain because you never know what blessing is there waiting for you…flirt with my husband openly because I’m in love…squeeze our 5 blessings often because I’m grateful & amazed by them…say sorry often because I make mistakes, stress & well, I’m a mess at times…I run to clear my head…and…I run to God because He’s my source of strength, hope, and love. I’m not where I was and I’m not where I’m yet going to be; I’m under construction deeply desiring to enjoy the journey. I know you have a unique and exciting one too, and I can’t wait to learn and enjoy the journey with you! Grateful, Laurie
