While the end of August typically denotes the end of summer, it also means the beginning of the school year. This is always an exciting time because it means a fresh start, new school books, and school supplies! But, this season often comes with a hefty price tag and the sadness that inevitably follows with the end of freedom and flexibility that is summer. Make the most of the end of your summer with these fun August freebies on events and school supplies that won’t lighten your wallet. Here are some of the August homeschool freebies that you won’t want to miss!
August Homeschool Freebies
National Park Birthday Free Entrance August 25-28
Each year, National parks have free entrance on the park systems birthday, August 25th. But this year, it’s the park systems 100th anniversary so to celebrate they will be offering free admission from August 25th-28th! Visit a national park on one of these days, snap a picture, and be sure to tag us on social media!
Make the most of the last month of summer by checking out the free movie days at your local theater. This is one of my favorite August homeschool freebies! Many offer free matinees for kids on movies like Toy Story, Mulan, Monsters Inc, and other family friendly movies. Some theaters that participate in these programs include Cinemark, AMC, Rave, Regal, Carmike.
School Supplies Deals
While not exactly free, a lot of companies are having huge back to school sales on school supplies which you can stock up on for the homeschool year. Some of my favorite deals include 69 cent Crayola markers from Target, 25 cent notebooks from Staples, and $3 backpacks from Walmart! Check your local listings, or find out the skinny on all your back to school supply needs with the searchable database at Penny Pinchin Mom!
