Last week, my 4-year-old daughter and I visited Lombard's Lilacia Park to check out the lilacs. Within five minutes of being there, she was complaining about being hot and hopscotching from one shady patch to the next.
Granted, the sun was unforgiving that day, but unless we're going to spend every day at a pool, it made me realize I might need to plan some indoor activities this summer during the hottest parts of the day.
One I am considering is the Kids Bowl Free program. It's a nationwide program through which registered children can receive two free games of bowling every day all summer long.
Here's a list of participating bowling alleys in suburban Chicago:
- Fox Bowl in Wheaton
- Bowlway Lanes in Elgin
- Arlington Lanes in Arlington Heights
- Wood Dale Bowl in Wood Dale
- Tivoli Bowl in Downers Grove
