Free LeVar Burton Bookmark Sticker

Free ‘LeVar Burton says Read Banned Books’ Sticker & Bookmark

I love the artwork on this latest freebie from MoveOn. Submit your mailing info on the first page and you'll get a free “LeVar Burton says read banned books” sticker and bookmark.

As always, you can ignore and exit out of the donation requests shown on the confirmation page.

Free Butterfly Garden Starter Kit

Free Butterfly Garden Starter Kit

Take the Butterfly Hero pledge and you'll get a free butterfly garden starter kit. Now I'm no lepidopterist, but I know a butterfly starter kit involves two butterflies who realllly like each other and a few milkweed flowers. Thankfully this freebie includes the seeds to start growing those flowers!

It turns out the monarch butterflies are in trouble and need more milkweed. So, pledge to grow the plants and help save the butterflies. In exchange, you'll get a free starter kit from the National Wildlife Federation. They're like the Federation in Star Trek, just without all the space ships!

This has been an annual offer since 2018 and it expires extremely fast each year! I wouldn't put off signing up if you want it.


Free JCPenney Kids Zone Event

Free JCPenney Kids Zone Event on December 9

Mark your calendars! On Saturday, December 9, stop by your local JCPenney between 11am-noon for the next free Kids Zone event. These free events are held by JCPenney on the second Saturday of each month. Just like my laundry cycle!

Your child will design and make a free holiday photo frame to build & take home. You'll get to choose from a truck or gingerbread house frame. This craft includes sticks, foam stickers, and glue dots. Kids will also get a free ID badge, lanyard, and collector's pin, and a Master Medallion once they complete 6 crafts.

All necessary materials will be provided and you don't need to signup ahead of time. As a thank you for coming, parents also receive a 10% off coupon valid for that day only. The coupon can be used either in store or online.


Free Home Depot Kids Workshop

Next Free Home Depot Kids Activity Kit on November 25

The next free Kids Activity Kit from Home Depot is just around the corner! These in-store events usually take place on the first Saturday of each month from 9am to 12 noon, however this month they're running a bonus event at the end of the month! Space is limited, so you need to register a spot under “In-Store Kids Workshops.”

In addition to keeping the craft forever, each kit comes with a free certificate of achievement, free Workshop Apron, and free commemorative pin. You can find more info on this month's free craft here.

November 25 Freebie Event: Penguin Ornament

No additional info is available.


December 3 Freebie Event: Gingerbread House

Take gingerbread houses to the next level with a DIY design challenge in which students design a sweet yard to go with their gingerbread house. Students will use simple materials to create their ideal landscape.


January 6 Freebie Event: Delivery Truck

No additional info is available.

If you prefer, you can purchase this & previous month's kit here while supplies last and guarantee you'll get one! This is completely optional though. You can also purchase an earlier kit, which supplies last. I've linked to the ones I could find down below.

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.

Get craft kits for home for under $5!

If you miss out on any kits, Home Depot is now selling previous months kits online for less than $5! After purchase, you can opt for free in-store pickup at your own convenience.

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. For instance, the November 2021 Amphibious Military Vehicle extension teaches your child how to build life vest for their imaginary passengers.

Registration is now open online for a free DIY kid's workshop to be held on Saturday, November 18 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.

November Event: Thanksgiving Turkey Photo Holder

The Thanksgiving table wonโ€™t be complete without a festive Turkey Photo Holder, built by your own little DIYer. Join us for this festive Kids Workshop where weโ€™ll provide everything your child needs to create a memorable table decoration that youโ€™ll be thankful to have.

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.

Free 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 2023. I really hope you and your family are able to keep enjoying these freebies for many years to come!


Hundreds of free printable pumpkin carving templates and stencils

Over 1,000 Free Halloween Pumpkin Carving Patterns, Templates, and Stencils

I'm a tad late on getting this published, but I wanted to provide a list of free pumpkin carving stencils and templates. My sister could always free-carve the most gorgeous designs without any help. Then she'd turn around and look at whatever monstrosity I'd created and we'd laugh our tails off at how bad I was.

So if you're like me and need a little help carving your jack-o-lantern, then here are some great freebies for you!

All you have to do is print out a free design, place the sheet over your pumpkin, and carve away! It's like tracing for your gourds, which…kinda sounds way dirties than it actually is.

  • 60 Festive Designs from Better Homes & Gardens – They have designs ranging from cute to creepy along with templates for both novices and experts alike.
  • 12 Better Homes & Gardens Mythical Creatures – BHG also has a dozen mythical creature pumpkin stencils, such as zombies, werewolves, dragons, and vampires.
  • HGTV 100+ Beginner Stencils – HGTV has a ton of easy to use beginner templates for the kiddos, such as witches, cats, ghosts, bats, skeletons and zombies. Or if youโ€™re looking for a cute, less menacing pumpkin design, carve a unicorn, owl, dog, dinosaur or a silly face.
  • HGTV 90+ Advanced stencils– If this isn't your first spooky craving rodeo, then you might want to have a look at their slightly more advanced pumpkin-carving stencils. Browse through a variety of designs from spooky to cool, such as ghosts, vampires, spiders, dragons, flowers, butterflies and even Dolly Parton.
  • Free Disney pumpkin carving patterns – Here's a search result of Disney patterns. Right now I'm seeing 26 patterns, like Ariel, Grogu, Olaf, Mickey Mouse, and more.
  • 100 Designs from Pumpkin Lady – I love the clean design of this site. In addition to the famous designs, she has some great more generalize ones like Autumn Leaves, goofy faces, different dog breeds, and much more.
  • Hundreds from Pumpkin Pile – They have a massive collection of pintables within the following groups: Traditional, Classic Jacks, Cartoons, Movies, Super Heroes, Sports, Video Games, Words, Celebrities, Vehicles, Animals, and Symbols.
  • 300 pumpkin patterns from Pumpkin Glow – Yet another huge collection of pintables. Scroll down to the bottom of the page in order to find pattern categories.
  • Free pumpkin patterns via Spook Masters – Last on the list is this older site. It's not as updated as the ones above, but one feature I like is that after clicking on a category at the top of the page, you'll get a full list of designs all on one page. So there's no constant clicking to the next page in order to find the best freebie for you.

If you find a design from the list above and use it to carve a pumpkin, I'd love to see the final result!


PETA Kids Freebies

PETA Kids Freebies

PETA Kids had a collection of freebies that I've written about over the years. However, to make things easier, I've consolidated all of their freebies into this post. I'll keep this updated and current as new PETA samples are released.

I first published these free stickers in 2009 and when they arrived, my little sister stuck them all over our family house. A few of them are even still there today! Every time I go home, I'm reminded of how cute animals are. It makes it really hard to eat meat when you're constantly being reminded of where it comes from. I enjoy my ignorance and would appreciate it if I could continue believing in the Meat Fairy, which is where all delicious meat obviously comes from.

Right now, you can request the following freebies:

You may have to copy & paste the links in order to go straight to the signup form.
  • *NEW!* Free PETA2 Oracle Kids Stickers – https://yoursign.peta2.com/#free-cards
  • Free PETA Kids ‘Let Animals Be Free' Activity Book – https://www.petakids.com/activities/get-free-circus-activity-book/
  • Free PETA Kids comic books
  • Free PETA Kids Stickers pack
  • Free PETA Membership Card – https://action.petakids.com/page/25545/data/1
  • Free PETA Kids coloring sheet – https://www.petakids.com/activities/animals-friends-not-food-coloring-sheet/

I wonder what the guide to helping animals will say. My guess is 1) Don't eat meat. 2) Stop dressing your pets in creepy sweaters.

[thanks to Hiffer Jessica for reminding me about these!]
