Each month Jen, from Gricefully Homeschooling, and I host a freebie link up called Homeschool FreeBEE Fridays

*Starting this month*, and from now on, this blogger link up will start on the first Friday of every month and end on the first day of the following month. Each month there will be a new link up. I hope this will help clear up any confusion anyone has had.

DON'T worry we will still be offering amazing, limited time, special freebies from our Homeschool FreeBEE Friday Sponsors. These will be posted the second Friday of the month!

For June I am sharing 10 FRUGAL (most are FREE) Summer activities for your family. These are great for any family not just homeschoolers.

1) REI Store - Did you know that REI offers FREE workshops and outings? Check your local store to see what they are offering this Summer.


2) Bass Pro Shops - Each year Bass Pro Shops opens their doors to families and offers FREE workshops, crafts, family photo, activities and more. You can also fish in the catch and release pond! This year Family Summer Camp is June 8th - July 14th on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday! Be sure to also pick up your FREE Summer Fun guide at the store.

Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites

3) State and National Parks - During the Summer State and National Parks offer a wide variety of activities including hikes, special talks, fishing and more. Check your local park calendars to see what events are going on. Parks do charge a parking fee which range from $3-$5 depending on the State...however here in GA our library has a State Park pass that can be checked out so you can get in for FREE.
