2015 Summer things to do Free or almost free.

School's almost out and as grandparents we are looking to find out what to do with the kids.  I've composed a list of Free to Nearly Free activities.

Splash Pads- I posted a list of these last year.  Please view their website to see if prices have changed or times-    Splash pads.

Reading programs- As a Native Floridian I know there are times it's just to hot to be out and about or there's one of the almost daily thunderstorms going on.  So that's a good time to pull out the books and do some reading.  Here's some programs I found-

Seminole County Library
