We're a little over the mid-way point of summer for most families, particularly here in Chester County. School begins in a little over a month, and while there is still time to do fun things, lots of parents are finding their "Bank of Activity Ideas" running dry. I have a GREAT day of fun for Chester County parents may not be aware of. For those NOT local, this opportunity may be available near you as well - so keep reading!
Many people know about the awesome $1 movies that Regal Cinemas offer on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. For those who don't know, it's legitimately $1 per person to see the two movies being offering that week. Read more about the Summer Movie Express here.
We are lucky to have a shopping center that offers both a Regal Cinema AND an A.C. Moore. Why is this important?
A.C Moore hosts Summer Fun Wednesdays each week through August 12. What is Summer Fun Wednesdays? Each A.C. Moore is offering a summer-long schedule of FREE "Make & Take" arts and crafts activities for children ages 4–12 from 1pm-3pm. These activities include things from tie-dying and duct tape projects to bracelet making and more!
So if you are in the Downingtown area, you can hit up Regal Cinemas each Wednesday at 10am, enjoy a picnic lunch at Kerr Park, then head to A.C. Moore at 1pm for a free make-and-take craft. If you want to be a "big spender" you could treat yourself to a tasty lunch at Wegmans.
That's an entire day of fun for $1 per person!
Do you live near an A.C. Moore? A Regal Cinema? Then you may be able to create this day of $1 fun for yourself too!
*Most* Regal Cinemas Summer Movie Express runs through the first week of August (find your local Regal to check their schedule), and A.C. Moore Summer Fun Wednesdays runs through August 12.
