It seems like there is always a reason to spend a little extra cash. Whether it is going above-and-beyond for every little and big holiday or treating yourself to a new outfit. Save a little money this week by doing activities that are free! Please share your favorite free activity in the comments below!
2/15, Lawn Bowling – Lawn Bowling at Pomona Lawn Bowling Club in Pomona. Pomona Lawn Bowling Club offers free lessons and free equipment use for anyone who is trying out lawn bowling for the first time. Call for more information and to set up a specific time, or show up during this regular time on Mondays at 10a.m., but please arrive at 9:30a.m. Singles, couples, families and young adults 16 and over are welcome to attend.
2/16, Free Tutoring – Free Math Help! at Corona Public Library’s Computer Learning Center from 4p.m. to 6p.m. This free math tutoring by a retired college professor is offered to high school and college students. Math can be a difficult subject, and tutoring is expensive! Luckily with this tutoring, you can get the help you need without paying a fee. No appointment is necessary.
2/17, Science Activity – Discovery Days at the Riverside Metropolitan Museum from 1:30p.m. to 4:30p.m. The program and museum admission are both free, however there is a suggested $2 for museum admission. This program takes a hands-on approach to teaching children ages 3 to 10 about nature and science. For this day, children will be learning about, “Blending In! The Art of Animal Camoflauge.” For groups larger than 7, reservations must be made in advance. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
2/18, Free Movie Night – Family Movie Nights (every Thursday) at the Steelworkers’ Auditorium in Fontana from 6p.m. to 8p.m. This free movie screening will prove to be the perfect family outing, because everyone appreciates a quality film projected onto the big screen. Seating is limited, so you’ll want to arrive early to ensure you get a good spot.
2/18, Family Storytime – PJ Storytime in the Children’s Department at Upland Public Library at 6p.m. The entire family is welcome to wind down in their pajamas by listening to some great stories. Relax without screens for at least two hours before bed, and you’ll be surprised how much better everyone will sleep through the night.
2/19, Exhibit – Visit “Sam Maloof Woodworker: Life/Art/Legacy” exhibition at Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts in Alta Loma from 12p.m. to 4p.m. Admission is free unless you decide to book a private tour. Sam Maloof is the inspiration behind this wonderful foundation, and the mass display of his various works attests to the skill and passion behind his vision. Visit this exhibit, which just opened this past Sunday, and we know you and the children will enjoy it.
2/19, Train Museum – Visit Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris. Grounds are open every day except Christmas and Thanksgiving from 9a.m. to 5p.m. Trains and trolleys only operate on the weekends and holidays. Admission to the museum is free. This railway museum is home to the biggest collection of railway locomotives, streetcars, passenger cars, freight cars, buildings and more in the Western United States. Curious minds will love seeing all these artifacts from the 1870s.
