Denver Deal: Hunger Games Party, McDonalds, Free Day at Museum and more
I usually shout to the world that it is my birthday – and I certainly make a big deal out of my kids birthdays (they are the king/queen for the day and get to choose what we do). This year the celebration is a bit less pronounced. Although I have received a great deal of free meal coupons via all the email clubs I am a part of – Noodles, Qdoba, Benihana, Cold Stone Creamery, Baskin Robbins, and Panera…There is a new site in town that does all the hunting for you (I used to have to do this on my own). If you or one of your family members has a birthday coming up check out BirthdayFreebies.com! And since I had so much time on my hands not having to search, the kids and I volunteered to collect school supplies with Volunteers of America. There are loads of great family friendly programs that you can participate in as a family.
Free Day at the Museum of Nature and Science
The Museum had a free day just this last week but another one is happening on August 20. Take the family and enjoy the Museum for FREE!
