Free JCPenney Kids Zone Event

Free JCPenney Kids Zone Event on August 10

Mark your calendars! On Saturday, August 10, 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! No registration is needed – you just need to show up on time and you should be good to go.

Your child will design and make a free color-your-own pencil pouch to build & take home. This craft includes pouch, stencil, notebook, and markers. 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.

The following month's craft will be held on Saturday, August 10, where kids will design and make their own pencil pouch. This craft will include a pouch, stencil, notebook, and markers.


Free Home Depot Kids Workshop

Free Home Depot Kids Workshop on August 3

The next free Kids Activity Kit from Home Depot is just around the corner! These in-store events take place on the first Saturday of each month from 9am to 12 noon, which means the next event is Saturday, August 3! 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.

August 3, 2024 Workshop Event: Whiteboard (Reversible)

Coding takes on a new meaning when students use a cipher to decode a message and then create their own using letters, symbols, or numbers. Students will create secret encoded messages to share on their Whiteboards.

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 August 2024 Whiteboard extension teaches your child how to write code messages!

Home Depot also has a cool “Buy of the Day” section, where they offer one-day only sales at huge discounts. It's worth checking out, you never know what they have!


Free Childrens Books from Kelloggs

Free Children’s Books from Kellogg’s

Kellogg's Feeding Reading program is back where you can get a free children's book (up to 20!) whenever you purchase a participating Kellogg's product. Products must be purchased by 9/30/24 and you have 30 days after purchase to upload a picture of your receipt. For each UPC uploaded, you'll earn a free book, limited to 20 books per participant.

Here is a full list of free books to choose from.

While the promo ends 9/30/24, you have until 11/14/24 to redeem your book credits.


Free Pampers Swaddlers 360 Diapers

Free Pampers Swaddlers 360 Diapers

Pampers is back with a free Swaddlers 360 diapers offer that also comes with a $4 coupon for a future purchase.

Signup is easy – there's just a simple one-page form to fill out. They don't even ask if you have a baby, which is good for me. The previous time I requested a kid-reliant freebie, it resulted in the oddest interaction I've ever had with my neighbor. It seems people don't take kindly to strangers asking “hey, can I borrow your kid for a minute? I need them for a freebie.”


Free Summer Events, Activities, Freebies for Kids

50+ Free Summer Kids Events, Activities, & Freebies!

With summer in full swing (woooo!), I thought it'd be a good idea to compiled a list of all the free kids summertime events & activities.

Check out some of these free events before summer 2024 ultimately ends (boooo!)

It's important to point out that while many of these are traditional freebies available each summer, you may encounter some offers are slowly rolling back out due to last year's shutdown. Therefore, I strongly suggest calling ahead and confirming your local establishment is participating in any of these.

Get freebies and discounts simply by reading books!

The free reading programs are always a big hit each year. 11 companies such as Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Chuck E. Cheese, Pizza Hut and many more reward good behavior by offering freebies and prizes for reading. Most stores have a free reading companies guide or tracker that you can print at home, fill out as your child reads over the summer, then turn it in for freebies!

Kids bowl free every day all summer long!

In fact, they get two free games of bowling! All you have to do is register ahead of time.

“It's about that time for the return of the favorite kids bowl free all summer deal! Sign up and your children will get two free games of bowling every day this summer. That's valued at over $500.”

Don't forget kids skate free during the summer too.

Multiple locations in 36 states offer free kids roller skating sessions with the one-time purchase of a $4.99 pass. The pass lasts for 12 months, giving ample opportunities to take advantage of its value. If there are no locations near you, you can send a letter encouraging them to join!

Attend a free in-store kids event at multiple stores!

At least seven stores offer recurring, monthly in-store free kids events. Some of the most popular summer activities are from such stores as:

As more free events are found, I update them to the list so you never miss out.

Enjoy a show with cheap admission to kids movies (average $1) all summer long!

At least 17 different cinema and theater chains across the nation, both big and small, offer some sort of summer movie ticket admission deals. In many cases, you can either get free admission or super cheap tickets for G and PG movies. Some chains are also offering discounted concessions and snacks as well.

They're cheap, they're air conditioned, and they're all summer long!

Good grades and report cards freebies are a real thing as well!

Get discounts and outright freebies at 12 confirmed restaurants and retailers! We've found another half dozen potential freebies as well

Enjoy a weekend outdoors during free National Parks admission days

The next National Parks free admission day August 4, 2024! Pay no entrance fee at any of our nation's 58 wonderful national parks scattered across the country.

Don't get lost, especially since most states give out free state road maps.

Go fishing for free during all 50 state's free dates!

While some states only hold license-free fishing dates early in the year, others hold multiple dates throughout the summer and even into fall! Check out your state's dates and then go reel in a fish or two with the little ones! These free fishing days are awesome. Take it from somebody who learned the hard way that you needed a license to fish ๐Ÿ˜€

Explore the outdoors for free by Geocaching!

Geocaching was one of my family's favorite activities back when multiple young ones were running around the house. All you need is a phone or GPS to access over 2.5 million free geocaches hidden all over the world! No matter how big or small your community, you'll be surprised how many geocaches are nearby!

Reuse old pieces with free LEGO instructions

LEGO has a huge, searchable database of free LEGO instructions to download! Put those old toys back to good use by building a long-forgotten LEGO or maybe even something new!


Free Summer Movie Deals

2024 Summer Movie Deals & Freebies for Families with Kids

Eagle-eyed Hiffers (holy crap, how did you get an EAGLE'S EYE?!) know that my current offspring count sits equal to the number of home runs I've hit for the Seattle Mariners this season. That said, growing up with tons of siblings, I have an inkling for what it's like with bored, moping children around the house. For you see, I myself get bored. A lot. And if your kids are anything like me, it must be insufferable to be around them when they have nothing to do. Plus it's hot outside. we need some cheap, air-conditioned entertainment!

As such, here's a huge list of all the free & cheap kids summer movie events! Almost every theater chain has a dedicated page advertising their summer deals, plus a helpful list of participating locations. So be sure to make sure your local spot is holding a deal before heading out.

I've included both nationwide and smaller, regional chains so as many Hiffers can take advantage of these deals as possible. I'm sure there are more, so please leave a comment if you find any I missed.

These events typically run from 10am-12pm, but each store is free to set their own hours. The easiest way to do so is use this link of in-store events and then select your local store from the left sidebar. Here's what I'm seeing for their upcoming schedule:

Michaels Summer Clay Ring Kids Event


Free Lowe's Kids Workshop Craft

Free Lowe’s DIY Kid’s Kit – Kinetic Sandbox on July 20

Registration is now open online for a free DIY kid's workshop to be held on Saturday, July 20 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.

However, this year they're also offering something new – attend the Kids' Workshops regularly and earn badges towards a free tool bag! The nitty gritty fine print can be found here, but long story short once you've earned twelve badges, you'll be issued a promotional code redeemable online for a free kid's tool bag or product of similar value.

So what's the upcoming workshop going to build?

July Event: Kinetic Sandbox

Dive into a world of sun, sand, and imagination with Lowe's! Perfect for budding engineers and outdoor enthusiasts, kids can dig-in, design, and build their own kinetic sand playground. From towering castles to winding roads, the possibilities are endless! Not only will your mini-DIYer interact with fun STEM concepts; they'll also develop important motor skills and sensory awareness as they manipulate the sand. Join us for a day of sandbox adventures where creativity knows no bounds!

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!

2024 Lowe's Kid's Kit Schedule

I did a little digging and found out these are the upcoming workshop builds this year.

  • January: Toolbox
  • February: Chalkboard
  • March: Bird Feeder
  • April: Garden Cart Planter
  • May: Mother's Day Butterfly Biome
  • June: Father's Day UTV

Free Backpack Filled with School Supplies via Verizon

Free Backpack Filled with School Supplies on July 28

This great annual freebie is back for Hiffers in 32 states and DC! Participating Verizon Wireless locations are giving away free backpacks filled with essential school supplies on Sunday, July 28, from 1-4pm! A full list of 1,117 locations and addresses are available on their Wireless Zone Locations page.

Each backpack comes with pencils, a pencil box, folders, paper, a ruler, and glue. Your child must be present and hopefully they're not dressed like the dapper young man in all of their ads, because that means they're 100% better dressed than me. You do not have to be a Verizon custom either.

These freebies are given away on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last, so I'd show up early if you really want this freebie. They're giving away 120,000 free backpacks this year, which averages out to about 100 freebies per location, so these will go fast!!

Last year there were only 13 states with participating locations. It's nice to see that number double this year!


Free Kids Summer Reading Programs for free books and prizes

2024 Kids Summer Reading Freebies & Deals

As long as you count the back of cereal boxes, I'm quite the voracious reader. I read on average two books a month and if your children are anything like me, they might be interested in this list I compiled of free summer reading programs! I've been updating this list since 2014 and was pretty surprised at how many of the offers still existed in 2024!

Below are all of the 2024 summer reading freebies and deals for kids! Most follow the “read X books, get 1 free” model, but there are a few that differ. Hopefully your little one enjoys reading or at least getting freebies ๐Ÿ™‚

I also have an idea I wanted to pass along. With some of these programs, you earn a free book off a list of available books. If your child reads this summer, but isn't interested in the freebies, consider donating them! School and public library are always desperate for books. Donating them to The Salvation Army or Goodwill is another possibility. Regardless, showing your child that freebies can be fun and helpful to others is a cool idea!

Finally, if you're still looking for additional summer reading resources, then I would start with this collection of summer reading information from the NEA.

Confirmed 2024 Summer Reading Freebies

Barnes & Noble – For kids in grades 1-6, get a free book after reading 8 books and filling out a Reading Journal by August 31.

For adults in many year's past, they could get a free tall hot or iced coffee from the cafe by sharing your child's school required reading list, but I'm uncertain if they brought this offer back this year or not. They also have coupons and discounts listed under the “Coupons & Deals” tab.

Books-A-Million – Read 4 books from their list and write about each book on this logbook, then take the form in-store to get a free Wings of Fire dragon hat.

Chuck E. Cheese – They have a ton of methods for kids to earn freebies, from good grades to sports achievements to reading in Spanish or English! This reading rewards calendar doesn't expire until 12/31/25 and gets 10 free Play Points with any food purchase.

Department of Defense – The DOD offers a summer reading program for military families & children stationed worldwide. In partnership with iREAD Summer Reading, library programs will include activities, graphics, crafts, reading lists, incentives, and much more for children, teens, and adults.

For more information, please contact your installation library (here's a full list with direct links!) or email them.

Half Price Books – Registration is now open! Starting on June 1, children 14 and under who read 300 minutes over June and July (that's only 5 mins/day) will earn $5 free Bookworm Bucks and a camp stickers sheet. There are also additional summer reading activities.

Teens can also earn HPB Bookworm Bucks by reading any of the listed titles and writing a short review.

New York Times – This will be their 15th annual Summer Reading Contest. Every Friday from June 9 through August 18, any middle and high-school student can read one article in the NYT and write in about why they read it or what interested them. As of this year, they can also manke a video up to 90 seconds long!

At the end of the week, judges from the Times newsroom pick favorite responses and publish them here. Aside from broadening their horizon's and randomly posting some of the selected weekly responses, there doesn't look to be any “reason” to do this. Still, 15-year-old-Goob would have gone crazy over this offer so maybe there's a kindred Hiffer out there who would enjoy this.

Pizza Hut – This classic program lets children earn a free personal pan pizza in exchange for reading anything over the summer. Parents can sign up and track their child's progress online without any forms.

Public Libraries – Be sure to check with your local libraries, as they often host multiple weekly, monthly, and seasonal events and reading competitions.

Reading with the Rays – Florida children can read anything they desire and receive free baseball prizes! Each child who completes their Reading with the Rays game card is eligible for two (2) free Lower Reserved tickets, subject to availability. Other prizes include a bookmark, lanyard, and hanging felt banner.

Here are the eligible game date:

TUESDAY, JUNE 25 – SEATTLE MARINERS – 6:50 P.M.
SUNDAY, JUNE 30 – WASHINGTON NATIONALS – 1:40 P.M.
SUNDAY, JULY 14 – CLEVELAND GUARDIANS – 1:40 P.M.
TUESDAY, JULY 30 – MIAMI MARLINS – 6:50 P.M.

Scholastic – May 9 through September 12, kids can log their reading time online as part of the Scholastic Summer Reading ‘Home Base' Program. Over the course of 10 weeks, kids can unlock digital rewards as they complete weekly reading challenges; and access book excerpts, videos, and other summer-exclusive content. Home Base is moderated for safety 24/7.

Maintaining a reading streak will also unlock donations of 100,000 books from Scholastic to kids in rural America with limited or no access to books.

Showcase Cinemas – Bookworm Wednesday rewards your little one with free admission to a select children's film when they present a book report. Accompanying parents or guardians and children under six years of age receive free admission and do not need to submit a book report!

Previous Summer Reading Deals Unconfirmed for 2024

The items below were summer reading deals during 2018-2022. If I find confirmation they'll return this year, I'll move them up above.

American Girl – Select locations in large cities are being held for girls ages 8 and up. Kids get to decorate their own bookmark and summer reading log and can take home a doll-sized poster.

DOGOBooks – Ten participants who review the most books will be eligible to win a Prize Pack of seven books shown on the site. The next twenty-five participants with the most reviews will be eligible to win a $10 Gift Card.

H-E-B – Texas children can take part in the H-E-Buddy summer reading club. They have to read 10 books, including 1 Read-3 book, and send in this form by October 1 in order to receive a “cool prize,” which looks to be a free t-shirt.

Hโ€‘Eโ€‘Buddy Summer Reading Program
10530 Sentinel
San Antonio, TX 78217

LifeWay – Take your completed Summer Reading Journal to the register at your local LifeWay store to get one of nine books plus receive a free Bible, while supplies last.

SYNC – I hate to say that SYNC has officially ended after 14 year. This was a free program that offered audiobooks each week to teens at least 13 years old. Two audiobooks were available each week through the Sora reading app, but unfortunately they ended this program in 2024.

TD Bank – We can't forget the classic offer by TD Bank! Kids in grades K-5 have from June 1 until Aug. 31 to read 10 books. They'll be rewarded with cold, hard cash in the form of $10 added to their free savings account.


Free Kids In-Store Events Schedule

Calendar of Next Free Kids In-Store Events

It can get a little confusing keeping track of all the great, free in-store kids events. So I've put together this comprehensive list of all the stores we track.

Current In-Store Kids Events

Home Depot – These monthly events are held from 9am-noon on the first Saturday of each month. They're designed for children aged 5-12 and pre-registration is required.

JCPenney – The Kids Zone events are each month on the second Saturday from 11am-12pm. They include a freebie to take home, ID badge, lanyard, collector's pin, and more. Parents also receive a free 10% coupon good for that day online. No registration is required.

Lowe's – Their monthly kids DIY events are still going strong after all these years! Registration opens a month early and then head to your local Lowe's on the designated day from 10am-1pm. A Red Vest employee from Lowe's will guide you and your child through a kid-friendly craft project that changes each month.

Michaels – As of 2024, these free in-store events are back! They tend to last for 2 hours, all supplies are included, and you need to RSVP your spot.

Apple – Their summer Apple Camp is currently allowing people to reserve open slots at their nearby Apple stores!

Pottery Barn – Here's another great in-store event that has returned with monthly frequency in 2024! You must RSVP your spot.

Upcoming In-Store Kids Events

Bass Pro Shops – Their summer events typically run throughout June, July, or August.

Lego – These monthly-themed events have recently shifted to varying days, depending on your local store. But kids still get to build a take-home LEGO toy. Some Hiffers have reported their local Lego stores have already phased these events out, so please make sure to call ahead!

Previous In-Store Kids Events

Joann Crafts – They haven't offered a free craft event since January 2024, so I believe these are on hiatus.

Target – They're monthly events are held on random Saturdays, usually near the end of the month, during late morning hours. They're often related to upcoming kids movies or events, with free games, prizes, and giveaway.

Know of any repeating, free in-store kids events I should start covering? Please let me know in the comments!


Free Kid-Safe GABB phone or watch

Free Kid-Safe Gabb Phone or Watch thru 6/3

Gabb are kid-friendly smart devices specifically designed for children to safely use without access to harmful or explicit content. Basically it allows them to call and text like a regular phone, but it blocks most Internet-related functions so that kids can't access non-children friendly sites or services, including social media and games. It also lets them learn how to use a smartphone by giving them access to non-Internet apps, like a calculator, weather, maps, notes, etc. There's a GPS tracking option as well that allows parents to check where the device and the child are located.

If this sounds like a device that would be good for your young child, then be sure to check out this deal. Now through June 3, you can get a free Gabb Phone 3 Pro or Gabb Watch 3 with no contract required. All you have to pay is a $30 activation fee to get started.

These devices retail for $149.99 and $199.99, so it's a huge freebie discount you're getting here.

They previously ran this promo in late December for the holidays and I know a few Hiffers took advantage of it. If your family uses Gabb, what do you think about it?
