Hey Mom's and Dad's! The kids are just about out of school and the big question is what to do with them. Now here are a few ideas. Whether you like indoors, outdoors, or both, there are a lot of great and inexpensive ways to keep your kids busy and for you to keep your sanity this summer, while they're on Summer break.

On the Top 5 at 7:45 today, I highlight at least 5 places that you can go to on a tight budget in Cheyenne. The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekday mornings with me, Gary Freeman, on KGAB Mornings.

  1. Paul Smith's Children's Village - If you are looking for indoor and outdoor activities, education, crafts, planting, and much more, this is the place to be. It is very kid-friendly and they have something going on almost everyday of the week.
  2. David R. Romero Youth Activity and Community Center - This adds a different dimension to fun. With their outdoor play yard consisting of slides, bars, swings and sand, they are sure to burn a lot of time and energy here. The center also has an indoor climbing wall, exercise bikes and is a great place to hold birthday parties.
  3. Wyoming State Museum - A great place for your kiddo to discover history, adventure and hand's on fun. Don't forget the unlimited photo opportunities with your child as they dress up and play the part of folks back in the old west. The cost is FREE.
  4. Curt Gowdy State Park - Where do I start? You're only limited by your imagination on this one. Let me tease you with a few idea appetizer's: camping, fishing, boating, hiking, swimming, cook-outs and a whole lot more.
  5. The Rodeo - Although not as inexpensive as the others, it's still not too bad of a price. Every youngster should have the experience of bulls, horses and cowboys as they make their exit out of the shoots for some of the greatest rodeo in the world.
