After these were handed out, we spent some time at our tables talking about other free or great deals. And then we shared them with the big group. Here are some of those ideas:
- Free days at many of the museums and national parks in the area. Check the websites for exact dates, but some of the museums do them monthly on Sundays.
- Free story times at the public libraries, balloon museum, and Barnes and Noble.
- Free activities at Chick-Fil-A most Tuesday nights (Family Nights). Some times these include free meals for the kids. This is at all three stand-alone Albuquerque locations. Also at Chick-Fil-A, you can turn the toy in to the counter from a kid's meal and get an ice cream cone instead.
- Season passes to Explora and the BioPark. A note ont he BioPark: unless you have more than 6 people in your family or teenagers, the family pass is not the best deal. Instead get an individual or couple and "Add-a-guest." Only get the couple if you have more than 4 kids OR your husband would go to the zoo without you.
