Free Stuff for Homeschoolers!
Want to save on homeschooling? Stretch your hard-earned dollar further with some fun free stuff for homeschoolers.
Finding free things to do has helped our family make homeschooling extra special.
Sometimes we can't afford to take a trip to the museum or partake in certain activities because of the cost, or purchase certain materials because we just don't have the extra money in our budget.
Thanks to giving merchants and organizations who offer special educational and enrichment opportunities for families.
Some of the free programs that you can participate in are free reading programs, free bowling, movies and more.
Check back often to learn about new free stuff for homeschoolers.

Go Out and Get Bowling!
Mandy Haws, manager of Sooner Bowling Center in Norman, OK provides some healthy bowling "factoids" that may interest you:
"Bowling isn't just a fun activity; it's a sport that people of all ages can enjoy. Bowling also provides many health and calorie-burning benefits."
"Did you know the average bowler burns 240 calories per hour?" Forget walking on the treadmill or stationary bikes, bowling is definitely more fun!
"Three games of bowling equals one mile of walking" – your family will experience fun physical education without even knowing it.
"Want your kids to build strong bones and muscles? Bowling is a weight-bearing sport which helps to build strong bones and muscles in growing kids, and adults."
"Bowling is one of the world's oldest sports, and the rules are the same for young and old, male and female."
(If you live in the Norman, Oklahoma area, check out Sooner Bowling Center for some homeschool bowling fun every Wednesday and get a special homeschool discount too!)
