Free Colgate Kids Toothpaste Sample

Free Colgate Samples for Teachers

Signups are open for next year's free Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures classroom kits. They usually ship around February each year. The kits contain a video and other easy-to-use classroom materials, like posters & storybooks, plus free Colgate toothpaste and toothbrush samples for 25 kindergartners or first-grade students.

I presume the video is a guide on health care and not something fun like The Matrix.

For non-teachers out there, you can access Colgate's current list of offers and coupons here!


Free JCPenney Kids Zone Event

Free JCPenney Kids Zone Event on February 12

Mark your calendars! On Saturday, February 12, 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 Valentine's Day card holder to take home, including craft sticks & stickers. They'll 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 in February!

The next free Kids Activity Kit from Home Depot is almost available! You previously hard to register ahead of time for these events, but during 2022 it's a “first come, first serve” freebie given away throughout the month. You then take the kits and build them at home.

February Freebie: Valentine's Photo Box – Love is in the air. Build your box and then craft secret messages for someone you care for.

The kits include nails, screens, stickers, and wooden pieces. You will need to provide your own sandpaper, wood glue, hammer, and #2 Phillips screwdriver.

Home Depot February 2022 Kids Kit

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.

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.

There are only a limited number of kits available per store! Find your local Home Depot and then call ahead to make sure they still have free kits available.

Most stores give these away at the customer service counter. Other stores reportedly give these away near the checkout registers.

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.

Free Home Depot Kit 2022 Schedule

If you really want to plan ahead, here's the full Home Depot kids workshop schedule for 2022. While supplies last, free kits are available during their entire month.

  • January: Toss Game
  • February: Valentine's Photo Box
  • March – December: ??

During normal years, these are in-store events held on the first Saturday of each month from 9-12pm. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, they've halted the in-store events and shifted this cool freebie to a month-long take-home kit.

Please remember to call your local Home Depot store to make sure they have remaining kits available!

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.

Home Depot Promotional Sales

While you're at the workshop, you might be interested in the latest online and in-store promotions at The Home Depot! Many of these deals are not tied to any event, with up to 75% discounts!

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 Ways to Track Santa

Free Ways to Track Santa on Christmas Eve

As Christmas Eve fast approaches, it's time for some to consider how they'll track Santa on December 24th. Luckily, modern technology and the military industrial complex has us covered!

The folks over at NORAD are the classic Santa trackers and they're back at it again this year. They started tracking Santa back in 1955 after a department store ad accidentally misprinted a phone number. Instead of calling Santa, children unexpectedly began calling the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.β€―πŸ€£

Their current Santa tracking site has a countdown, radar, and some holiday music and games. Visitors can see updates on Santa's preparations beginning at 4 am Christmas Eve. Children and parents can also call 1-877-446-6723 to inquire about Santa beginning at 6 am Christmas Eve.

Google also has a Santa tracker website. You get the same Santa tracking experience as NORAD without any of the worries of an errant hellfire missile strike bringing the big man down. They've got games, videos, an online yule log, and a “design your own elf” section.


Free Enfamil Baby Formula

Free Enfamil Baby Formula

Enfamil is giving away free 10oz. Enfagrow Toddler Next Step baby formula. I think this is an enfantastic offer for enfanew parents, but let's not overlook the important questions here. Why does Enfamil name all their enfaproducts with the same prefix. It's enfaweird.

In order to receive this freebie, your toddler must be at least 12 months old to qualify. Allow four to six weeks for delivery.

They also have a Savings and Support center where you can request up to $130 in savings and coupons.


Free Phone Call from Santa

Free Personalized Call From Santa

Your child can get a free personalized phone call from Santa right here via Package From Santa. You'll need to download their free app for iPhone / iPad or Android and then configure your one free call. You have to pay for any additional calls, so make sure you're ready for the initial freebie call!

You can choose the date & time of the call as well as select from over 30 unique messages from Santa. You also get to set the incoming call screen. Optionally, you can upload a photo of your child to appear in the call and you can have their age, state, country, and more mentioned! Here's an example of a type of free call from Santa you can build.

I have a strong feeling they'll try to upsell you on other items, but that shouldn't stop you from redeeming this great freebie for the kiddos! Just remember to use your freebie email and if they ever ask for a credit card, give them a free Privacy.com generated card with a $0 charge limit! πŸ˜‰

Still on the fence? Previous reader reported their children loved their free Santa call!

Swan Letter Holder Kit

Free Lowe’s DIY Kid’s Kit – Swan Letter Holder Kit

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.

You can register online now for a free DIY kid's kits to be picked up in-person during the weekend of February 12 and 13.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner! This month's project is perfect for displaying all of your little one's Valentine's cards.

Reserved kits can be picked up in-store at our customer service desk on Saturday, February 12th or Sunday, February 13th. If your kit is not picked up by 8 p.m. on Sunday, February 13th, it may be given to a non-registered customer.

These look so cool – and they actually work! 8 year old Goob would have loved this toy and 38 year old Goob would totally pick it up late at night after all the kids had fallen asleep.

To register for this freebie, click the blue “Find an Event Near You” button under “DIY Kids' Workshops” and locate your nearby Lowe's with your zip code. From there you'll be able to reserve your free diy kids workshop kits!

Be sure not to forget during the pickup dates or your child's kit will be given away to somebody else. On the flip side, if registration has already filled up at your local Lowe's, it's always worth stopping by your local store after the select dates. I managed to score one of these kits that way last spring for my nephew!

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, so it was really nice to see registration for these kits return in 2021. I really hope you and your family have been enjoying these freebies too!


Free Call from Santa

Free Personalized Video from Santa

This classic, annual children's freebie of a free personalized video from Santa isn't a typical offer that arrives in your mailbox. Instead, you get a unique, personalized video sent straight to your computer, phone, or tablet from the big man up North himself!

I also found this second free custom Santa video site from Synthesia!

These Santa freebies are always a favorite of Hiffers. Well, I'm assuming their children love it more than they do. It's fairly straightforward to set up and you're even given the option to pay for an upgraded video with more bells and whistles, but the free one gets the job done just fine.

Seriously though, a boatload of Hiffers always email me about this every year. And I don't mean some piddly canoe. We're talking gigantic, covid-filled cruise ships here. Every third email this time of year seems to be asking for me to post this. It's actually a nice break from the letters I typically receive. You'd think being told how handsome I am every day would be nice, but it sure can get tiring.


Free Baby Belly Badges

Free Enfamil Belly Badges

Once you join the free Enfamil Family Beginnings program, they'll send out freebies like these free baby belly badges. Ohhhh, strong alliteration, they've already won me over. I'm an easy date.

Belly Badges are simply stickers that you place on your baby's belly to share special moments and milestones with friends and family. When you join the Enfamil Family Beginnings program, you'll receive a set of Belly Badges in the mail right away! Limit one offer per household.

In addition to these freebies, you'll get free formula and coupons sent to you. You'll also be entered for a chance to win free formula for a year!


Free Lowe's DIY Holiday House Kits

Free Lowe’s DIY Holiday House Kits

Each kit includes graham crackers, icing, and decorating candies plus four designs to help your family build the perfect holiday house.

You might want to pick your freebies up on Saturday, December 11 between 9am – 12pm. On that morning, there will be free hot cocoa, cookies, and candy canes available in-store!


Free GoodNites Sleep Underwear

Free Goodnites Underwear for Boys & Girls

Hey look! A new free Goodnites Nighttime Underwear offer for boys is available. As of 2022, the form for girls underwear samples seems to be down.

Samples this time around are of sizes L and XL. They also come with a free sizing kit. All you have to do is click through to the site, select the gendered samples you want, then fill out the address form.

You think the kids promo images are always smiling because they just learned they can pee in bed?

This list of free baby stuff is the most up-to-date guide on all the baby freebies you can get! I list active free diaper samples there first.

Back in the day, Huggies, Goodnites, and Pampers gave away a bunch of free baby diapers. Now, they're a bit more rare. Below you'll find a collection of many of our old free diaper jokes from many moons ago πŸ™‚


Chances are if you have a little one, you've already got a few diapers on hand. But you can never have too many. Trust. Me. On. That. We won't get into the specifics, but let's just say the end of this little episode involved myself, my little brother, a beach towel, and a bunch of paperclips. Oh, what I would have done for some of these free pampers diapers back then!

Free Letter from Santa

Free Letters From Santa

Even while he's busy making enough toys to give away each year, Santa somehow finds time in his day to write individual letters to every little girl and boy who write him. As a kid, I never knew what his address was, but now that I've come across it, I thought I'd share it with all you kiddos out there! So be sure and write Santa early this year so that he can write you back before Christmas!

A lot of free Santa letter sites, especially those at the top of Google, are trying to sell you something. That goes against our entire ethos, so I've only included sites below that are 100% free with no upsell whatsoever. You might have to spend the cost of a self-addressed stamped envelope for an offer or there, but overall there's no require for payment or use of a credit card!

Santa Letter Postmarked from the North Pole

If you'd rather take care of writing the specific response, the USPS has a neat free program where you can have your letter postmarked from the North Pole. Here's how it works:

  1. Have your child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
  2. Write a personalized response to your child's letter and sign it “From Santa.”
  3. Insert both letters into an envelope, and address it to your child.
  4. Add the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.
  5. Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
  6. Place the complete envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address it to:

    NORTH POLE POSTMARK
    POSTMASTER
    4141 POSTMARK DR
    ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998

They recommend sending your letters by December 10 this year. Santa's helpers in Anchorage, AK, will take care of the rest!

Free Santa Letter from EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska

The 354th Operations Support Squadron's weather flight “elves” receive hundreds of letters each year, and acting on behalf of the “Big Guy,” send letters back to the children who write. They will even send out late post letters to children’s whose lists got delivered after the holidays.”

To get a free free letter from Santa sent to your house, please send a letter to:

Santa's Mailbag
2827 Flightline Ave. Suite 100B
354th OSS/OSW
Eielson AFB AK 99702-1520

I first found this great freebie in 2006, but turns out this Santa's Mailbag was started in 1954! A group of Airmen with the 58th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron wanted to assist the post office by responding to letters they received for Santa; more than 60 years later the program is still going strong.

Free Letter from Santa Claus Museum

Since 1914, children have had the joy of receiving letters from Santa Claus for free, and the tradition continues today. To receive a written letter from Santa Claus, just send a letter with a legible return address, mailed to:

Santa Claus
PO Box 1
Santa Claus, IN 47579

Every letter received by December 18, 2021 will receive a response from Santa and the Elves. Just remember, the earlier, the better!

Donations are always appreciated and may be sent with the letters, or mailed to Santa at the same address.

Free Santa Letter Template & Printables

A lot of sites have custom free Santa printable letter templates. Simply download the letters and fill out the necessary fields, if applicable.

There are two main types of free printables: The first are for writing personalized letters to your child. The second are for your child to fill out as a dear Santa letter template.

Here are some of our favorite free printable “fill in blank” letter from Santa templates:

Hopefully you're able to find a perfect free letter from santa printable for your family on one of those sites!
