Weekday Picks for Philly Kids: FREE Fun, Wawa Welcome America June 26-30
With the arrival of summer, Philly parents may be wondering how to keep children engaged in fun without breaking the bank. This week's top picks are all FREE and are sure to put a smile on your face and your wallet.
First, stop into your local library for free programming such as Parkway Central Library's Baby and Toddler Story Time, Wissahickon Library's Guitar Story Time, Fumo Family Library's Mindful Meditation, or Media Library's Captain Underpants Party. Then, make crafts at Linvilla Orchards or Monkey Fish Toys. Dance and sing along at a free outdoor concert at White's Road Park, Debarth Amphitheater, or Narberth Park. Best yet, Wawa Welcome America arrives in town this week! During the festival, young and old can take advantage of free museum admission, Go 4th learning opportunities, and free hoagies, too.
However you spend the week, keep it fun and keep it free! Read on for additional no-cost activities below.
