Kid activities (free/cheap)

Looking for something free/cheap to do with your kids this summer? Well depending on their ages, here are some ideas:

Going Digital:

A collection of public domain audiobooks: http://librivox.org/childrens-short-works-collection-vol-012-by-various/

You could download the free digital version and put it on your tablet/kindle/nook/what have you and read along with your kids.

Bugs and Guts:

http://www.schoolofants.org/index.html – Order a sample kit and participate in this research study! Would be nice way to get bug-squeamish kids to view bugs as having a purpose in this world! And science is always great.

  1. Uh, as a librarian you think I’d think of downloading a kid’s book on my Kindle for waiting rooms and lessons, etc. No. This is great, thank you.
