Deals: Best ice Cream in Denver challenge, free craft day and more

posted by:

The challenge is on! My daughter and I are on the hunt for the Best Ice Cream in Denver. We are making a summer of the delightful stuff. We intend to go to a new ice cream shop every week this summer to try to find the best of the best in Denver. So far we’ve been to two! We liked Little Man Ice Cream because the atmosphere was great, the ice cream flavors interesting and it didn’t feel to “heavy” the cream was creamy enough but not like we were EATING it – just licking it. BUT, we did have to wait in a line and it wasn’t even when it was a hot summer day. We are taking suggestions – and literally flipping a coin to decide which venue we will go to each week. 

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Kids Camp. Once again Kids Camp at Alamo Drafthouse is where to go this summer. Choose your own ticket price of $1, $3, or $5. Enjoy a GREAT movie and 100% of the sales goes to a non profit!

 Lakeshore Learning Free Craft Day. On Saturday, June 15 participate in the Free Crafts day for Kids from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Park Meadows location. The event is free and kids will get to create a Father’s Day Card! 

 Fetch Market. With the success of the Fetch Markets  – there is now a brick and mortar store at the Dairy Block where you can find the great stuff every day!  But the seasonal markets won’t go away either. The Fetch Summer Market  will be on June 21-23 with a concert and more shopping fun!

When the Rockies score 7 or more runs in a game (win or lose) you can swing by Taco Bell the next day between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to get four tacos for $2. (We end up eating at Taco Bell about once a week so far). They are also having a free Doritos Locos Taco on June 18 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (no purchase necessary).

 Water World. Nothing says summer to me more than Water World (I used to live right by there and all my friends were lifeguards there as a summer job). One of the world’s largest water parks often also comes with a large price tag (especially when you are bringing lots of kids). But luckily there are a few ways to get admission less expensively. Kids under 40” are free every day; Consider a splash pass (season pass); King Soopers has a family 4-pack including admission,  pizza and drinks; Bring a marked Mountain Dew can for $10 off); or pick up a coupon at Subway.
