Now that school is winding down, many of us parents will be looking for new ways to get our kids moving this summer. Perhaps bowling is, er, up your alley? Part of a nationwide program, local alleys participate in the "Kids Bowl Free" program during the summer months. For children 15 and under, registration gets kids a pass to bowl 2 free games each day as long as the program runs. With participating sites in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, you're sure to find something nearby. A neat add-on -- parents can buy a family pass for just under $25, which allows Mom, Dad and other caregivers the same 2-games-a-day deal (but even if you don't get the family pass, the kids can still get their free games). This deal is perfect for family outings, rainy days, and those days when it's too hot to move. Visit the website for further details and to find an alley near you. Daily, through August 30. Free. Ages 15 and under. www.kidsbowlfree.com
