More last minute free events

So I was driving on the freeway and noticed a billboard saying Free, which caught my eye so I glanced quickly and saw what was free and where. I did my double check on the website of the place and it was confirmed. The M Resort has free Dive-in Movies and their first one is June 8th and it is Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The doors open at 8 PM. Their next free event night is June 10th and that is called Beers, Gears, and Bikinis Car Show. They also offer free admission to locals with their local ID.

I also found out after my last blog post that this Saturday and Sunday Springs Preserve is having free admission day to celebrate their birthday.

Free Fishing Day in Nevada and National Parks

On June 10th it is free fishing day in Nevada.

Here is the link for families that have 4th graders to get free entrance into the National Parks

Places to stay cool

I know I try to utilize this blog as an informational blog for inexpensive/free things to do in the Las Vegas Valley and some things are nationwide, but I feel the need to also inform the readers of other options that I come by even though they might cost more. I do feel the local libraries and recreation centers are awesome places to spend time all year long, I know it can be difficult to keep track of the events happening at them and registering for the events in time. There are summer camps available at different churches and facilities, those are not easy to find as there are many organizations in this diverse valley. In no particular order (mainly in the order I find them) here is a list and links:

Fun Lane Indoor Play

Vegas Valley Gymnastics Center (I believe offers summer camps)

My Gym Children's Fitness Center

FlipNOut Xtreme (has 2 locations)

KangaMoo Indoor PlayGround

There are also many bowling alleys across the valley. There is a free bowling sign up and it is free, but shoe rental still costs money. Boulder Bowl is the only bowling center that participates though.

Ice Skating rinks are also in town

Sobe Ice Arena

Las Vegas Ice Center

Crystal Palace is not the name of an ice skating rink it is the roller skating rinks franchise

Other indoor activities:

Mom Meet group sampling of Melt Probiotic Spread

I was given the opportunity to sample with a group of moms Melt Probiotic Spread. I found it at Sprouts Farmer's Market. We tried it on some yummy muffins, whole grain bread, and a baguette. The muffins' flavors over powered the spreads flavor, not that there is one, but it was great to spread onto the crumbly muffins. It was easy to spread and is a great alternative to butter. Everyone that tried it liked it, even the kids. I don't go to Sprouts often so I can't say I'd buy it instead of the butter I buy now because it's not offered where I usually shop. If it was sold where I usually shop I would consider purchasing it instead of what I currently buy. This is some of us trying it.

Spintales Storytime Rug

In April I had the chance to try out a new product from the company SpinTales. They have a rug that is in a jungle setting and a duvet that is a castle setting. Along with those products there is an app that allows parts of the rug or duvet (depending on what you have) interact with the user. It is a fun rug and the stories on the app are cute, the main pitfall is the app and the rug doesn't always sync together. To activate the app you have to match a picture on the rug. We would match the picture on the app to the spot on the rug and the interaction did not always work. That can be frustrating as a parent reading the story and even more frustrating for a child trying to read it themselves. The app does not cost any extra which is good, but the cost of the product one would expect the app to work with the pictures every time and not at just the right angle and zoom. We tried it with different devices thinking that could have been the issue, but it wasn't. I am still going to use the rug and app and it will be part of a story time at an indoor play place. I am hoping the children will enjoy it as much as the children that got to see it at the party did. Below are the pictures of the children on the rug and the families taking pictures of the kids playing on it. #SpintalesStorytimeRug #Tryazon #Gotitfree

Kaskey Kids Figures

In February I hosted a party for a major sporting event. For that event I was chosen to host a Kaskey Kids party from Trayzon. I know it's May now at that was months ago, I wanted to post sooner, however my computer bit the bullet and still needs to be fixed. I'm using my husband's for now and it took me that long to get used to it. I got a lot of figures to put out as decorations and have the children play with. My children aged 4-14 all enjoyed playing with the figures. The only thing  my children missed with the figures is a loose football. I put the figures on my 7 layer dip and a cake. Those that came to the party got to take home their own box that had either 1 or a surprise of 2 figures. I did get the figures free to use and write a review. I'm not sure I would buy these products on their own unless they were requested by someone to use as a decoration. Below are the pictures of how we used them and the group at the party. #Trayzon #KaskeyKids
