IKEA in Hicksville is celebrating Summer with some wonderful events for the kids.
Not only are they providing some FREE Family Fun for their IKEA FAMILY card members but, they are giving back to our community. Did you know that on any given night there are 2,000 children in homeless shelters in Nassau and Suffolk counties? “At IKEA, children are the most important people in the world, so IKEA looks to support programs that make a difference in the lives of the many children. For this reason, IKEA Long Island is partnering with Long Island Coalition for the Homeless to donate 500 backpacks to homeless children. We are also doing a school supply drive throughout the month of July to fill those backpacks.”
We have a great list of things to do that do not cost much money at all and some are even FREE!, yes FREE! Whether you like to listen to an outdoor concert, go to the movies, bowl with family and friends, roller skate or get crafty we have something that may interest you this summer in the list below.
Sign your children up for 2 free games of bowling all summer long!
We signed up this past weekend and already have been enjoying the fun at our local bowling alley. Have you signed up yet?
Select bowling centers and schools around the country are participating in the first ever Kids Bowl Free program. This program is designed by bowling centers to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure, and fun way for kids to spend time this summer. The program is for children ages 15 and under.
Let’s face it going out to dinner with the kids is always an adventure. We love going out to eat as a family and enjoying our local restaurants with the kids.
You know what is really awesome? Is going out to eat and the kids meals are FREE! Yes, Free! Some restaurants feature FREE kids meals on certain nights of the week (some restrictions apply). Check out our features below:

I was chatting with my Momee Friend, Dawn after we picked our girls up from nursery school and she reminded me that today is, World Read Aloud Day!
World Read Aloud Day is a celebration. It is about reading just for the fun of it!
Reading is one of our favorite family activities. At night before the girls go to bed my husband and I make sure we all spend the last 30 minutes of the day reading together all snug in our comfy pajamas and relaxing TOGETHER reading some of our favorite books. I highly recommend trying to implement this time into your daily routine.
