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.
