Summer Survival Kit

So, after all the drama, Ex's reassignment to swing shift came through in the nick of time.  Since I know how hard it is to keep kids happy in the Summer, especially when you are that tired, I'm putting together a summer survival kit.  Included will be books,

coloring books, worksheets, crafts, swim suits, sun screen, emergency numbers, names and phone numbers of friends, and a list of every free and nearly free activity that I can find in Ogden.  I compiled it all in this beauty that I purchased for $3 at my favorite store, Savers.

Here is the list I have compliled so far:

Activities that are available every day:


Bowling at Sparetime-2 free games everyday

Dinosaur Park-We have a season pass that I got when it was the daily deal on Groupon Check out the parks fun website

Ogden Nature Center-  we get in free on weekdays with our Dinosaur pass.  A nature center pass would get you into dinosaur park  free on weekdays.

Union Station museums- also free with dinosaur park or Nature Center pass.

Swimming at the Marshall White center- $2 for adults, $1.50 for kids (except Tuesdays when it is ten cents!) 1:00pm to 5:30.

Splash pads-one at the Nature park in South Ogden and the other at Riverdale park.
Summer lunches-free for everyone under 18. This link lists Ogden, Weber, Davis, and Box Elder districts.
