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!

Apple – Their summer Apple Camp is already back for 2021.

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

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. 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.

Lowe's – Their free monthly kids DIY events are back as of 2021! Registration opens a month early and then you pick the kits up curbside at your local Lowe's.

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!

Michaels – Their Kids Workshops recently started charging $1, but many of their summer dates are back to being free!

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 Headlines that Changed History Poster

Free Headlines That Changed History Poster

Ohhh, I wonder what free “Headlines that Changed History” poster I'll recieve. I've got my eyes set on my birth announcement! At the time, it wasn't so much a headline as a page D17 blurb. But after the illustrious life and career I've managed, I'm all by certain my family's local paper has gone back and edited their archive.

The site says all you need is a valid email and address, so I entered “None” for what school I attend.


Free Target Baby Kit

Free Target Baby Welcome Kit πŸŽ―πŸ‘Ά

If you're expecting a little bundle of sleepless nights, then spend a few minutes making a baby registry on Target.com and you'll get a free baby welcome kit valued at over $80!

After taking just a few minutes to create your registry, stop by your local Target to pick up your free baby welcome gift at Gust Services.

It's well worth it, as many of the samples are full sized along with tons of coupons! Make sure to bring photo ID or a crying baby to pick it up.

If a Hiffer takes advantage of this any time soon, please contact me!


Kids Eat Free at IHOP

Kids Eat Free at IHOP

Now through September 25, 2016, kids eat free at IHOP with the purchase of each adult entree from 4-10pm at participating locations. However the geniuses behind what I have to assume is at least a million dollar campaign forgot one key detail during all their meetings. I couldn't find a list of participating locations on their site.

That being said, you'll probably want to call your nearest IHOP before heading off with the little ones in toe.


Free GoodNites Sleep Underwear

Free Pull-Ups

Costco is offering free Pull-Ups training pants and the best part is the signup form doesn't require a Costco Member ID. Maybe they finally realized that doing so was futile as we all knew to punch in 9 random numbers. I just wish that little trick would work on other things like ATMs, phones, and girlfriends.

Wait, that makes it sound like I date robots. No, no, don't worry. I only go for cyborgs.


Free Lowe’s & Toys R Us Events on 04/17

I guess these free Lowe's Build & Grow Clinic are every weekend now, because tomorrow from 10-11am they'll be building a free flower planter. After your finished playing Bob The Builder, head over to Toys R Us from 11am 1-pm for a free Thomas the Tank Engine event.

Okay, I had to put my cat down this morning, so I'm not feeling the funny today. She was a fantastic, old kitty who loved sunning all morning, sleeping on our chests at night, and slyly letting the dogs get close enough to almost sniff her butt before smacking their heads at any hour of the day. In other words, she spent 19 years rockin' out. She'll be dearly missed in the Goob household, but damn, you could not have asked for a better cat.


Free Coloring Pages

I'm gonna be honest, I thought this was some sort of elaborate spam at first glance. But in fact it's a search engine for free coloring pages and from what I can tell, it's legit. Let's say you your kid has their entire room decked out in unicorn posters. Well, just go to the site, search for “unicorns” and a few pages worth of results will pop up. Then print out a few and viola! You She can draw all night long.

Obviously, you'll need a printer and some black ink to print these out. But face it, what's more valuable: a few bucks worth of ink or potential hours of peace and quiet? Exactly, that's what I thought.


Free Baby Mozart Music

Reader Kinkan sent in this great freebie where you can download all sorts of free Baby Mozart music! My two youngest siblings had these and they used to do wonders for putting them to sleep quickly and keeping them asleep! In fact, I guess actually this could be listened to by anybody, as I myself enjoyed listening to the music while I rocked my siblings to sleep. In fact, I even have the songs on my iPod πŸ™‚
