Since I'm already bumbling around Facebook and Twitter, I decided to try Pinterest, too. What is Pinterest? It's one of the fastest growing and popular forms of social media today. Basically, you create a page and "pin" visual elements to it. My page is HERE. So far, I've added two boards - Free Stuff for Families and Fun Places to go in Utah. I've highlighted a few of my favorite offers: Free admission days to the new Utah Museum of Natural History and any national park, Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day in April and $1 admission to Tracy Aviary. I also have information about one my family's favorite activities, letterboxing. I'll be working on adding more. I'd love to hear your ideas about free and inexpensive family activities I can post to this page and any tips to using Pinterest. By the way, my Facebook page is HERE and my Twitter page is HERE.
