Every year as summer draws nigh, I research freebie events at my favorite family spots around Chicago and Northwest Indiana (NWI). I add these events to what I call the
Cunningham Summer Fun Calendar. The kids have come to look forward to it. I have learned to use the daily events as a means to entice them to finish their summer reading and complete their household chores. When they do, they can look forward to my loading the truck and packing them in to hit every possible FREE event we can – and sometimes we splurge a little ;).
I have shared my calendar with some friends through the years and, from what I’m told, it’s a pretty good resource. It’s nothing fancy…no bells and whistles…just the facts, ma’am…and only the facts :). I will publish my calendar here on my blog for my fellow NWI moms and Chicago area moms that like to visit the NWI family spots.
One word of caution: it is ALWAYS a work in progress! FREE and fun events are always poppin’ up around town and this mom keeps her ear to the ground so I can be in the know and on-the-go ;)! If you think I’ve missed something, feel free to leave me a comment so I can add it in and republish the calendar. We moms have to stick together ;).
Hope you have a FUNtabulous summer :D!
