Go here to request a free Disney Key to the Magic that will “unlock the enchantment of Disney Vacation Club.” This is a physical, rubber key that will unlock special videos on your smartphone to help you plan your next Disney vacation at several of their resorts.
Here's a still active form offering free Rascal + Friends premium diapers. Every time I see this freebie, I think of Rascal Flatts, which is the only time I ever think of Rascal Flatts.
I didn't sign up for this since I don't have any family members still peeing their pants, so please let me know if the form stops submitting in the future.
Registration is now open online for a free DIY kid's workshop to be held on Saturday, March 16 from 10am-1pm. Here's the signup link.
Lowe's has brought back their popular free kid's projects with DIY kits available every 2nd weekend of each month! The suggested child's age ranges for the Lowe's DIY Kits are between 4-11. All supplies and instructions are included, making it a fun children's task to complete.
March Event: Flower Bird Feeder –
Gather your mini-DIYers and bird lovers to craft a flower shaped bird feeder. Kid's will learn basic building skills as the create a unique ornament to attract our feathered friends.
These look so cool – and they actually work! 8 year old Goob would have loved this toy and 40 year old Goob would totally pick it up late at night after all the kids had fallen asleep.
Lowe's Kids Workshop History
For over a decade, the free Lowe's Build & Grow workshop clinics were a staple monthly freebie. Just like the free Home Depot Kids Workshop, you could take your children to Lowe's on certain weekends and come away with a cool, custom built freebie. They were in-store workshops though, where attendees could make awesome projects right in Lowe's with the provided tools, safety gear, and work space. Then 30 minutes later the kids would always get to take home the cool toy craft they just made along with a collectible commemorative pin. They even gave coupons and discounts to workshop participants!
They shut the program down in 2017, but eventually brought them back and are still going strong in 2024. I really hope you and your family are able to keep enjoying these freebies for many years to come!

In addition to keeping the craft forever, each kit comes with a free certificate of achievement, free Workshop Apron, and free commemorative pin.
March 2, 2024 Workshop Event: Butterfly House
Do butterflies have a favorite spot to hang out? Students will create an observation chart, watch butterfly activity, and then analyze their results to select the ideal location for their Butterfly House.
You can find more info on this month's free craft here. These free craft kits are intended for kids aged 5-12, though the age range is simply a guide instead of a strict rule. I can also confirm grown adults aged over 30 sometimes have trouble helping their little brother because I'm terrible with tools.
Don't miss the free Workshop Extension Activity!
Each free kit also has an “extension activity” created in tandem with Discovery Channel Education. These are kind of cool, as they let your child “upgrade” the free craft they built. The March 2024 Butterfly House extension teaches your child how to observe && learn if butterflies have a favorite spot to hang out.

The CDC is offering free Tony Hawk “Be Tobacco Free” posters. These were originally printed in 2002, so some of you millenials parents out there might remember it from our days in school.

As a kid, I swore I hated sports and would never play them. My parents nevertheless signed me up for baseball against my extremely vocal protests and adamant promises that I'd simply sit down and never try. 30 years later, I'm a massive baseball fan and couldn't be more thankful they ignored me! Who knows, maybe your kid is the next Wayne Gretzky and will only discover their love for the game thanks to this freebie.
