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 A&W Root Beer Float

Free A&W Root Beer Float on Aug 6, 2024

I'm sure I don't have to tell you that Tuesday, August 6, 2024 is National Root Beer Day. What you might not realize is we get a free A&W root beer float between 2PM – 8PM! You can get all the history and details here on A&W's site, but there's not much to it. All you have to do make sure to join their free A&W Mug Club today and you'll then get a free coupon to take to your local A&W and pick up your free small root beer float.

Okay wiseguy, you're right, that's not all you'll have to do. You'll need to walk inside or at least go around the drive-tru and ask for your freebie. It's not like the floats will be sitting outside in the parking lot.

Free McDonald's Medium Fries

McDonald’s: Free Medium Fries on July 13

The next annual National Fries Day is coming up in July. In celebration, McDonald's is stealing their thunder and launching a “Free Fries Friday” where they'll be giving away free medium fries on Saturday, July 13. These freebies will be available all day July 13th with no purchase necessary.

Additionally, they're giving away free medium fries every Friday throughout the end of the year, as long as you make a $1 purchase on anything else. This promo is exclusively found in the McDonald's app – and don't forget the purchase requirement is waived on July 13!

I'll be sure to republish this next month so you won't forget to enjoy some french fries for lunch. Or dinner! Or how about breakfast?! Just not all three, because the employees would notice you coming back for more than one freebie. That is, unless you wear a fake mustache and fake beard during your second and third trips.

What, am I the only person who carries around emergency fake facial hair?

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!
