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.  http://www.savers.com/
                                     

Here is the list I have compliled so far:

Activities that are available every day:
