Freebie Friday: Free stuff for the family!
By Jennifer Osieczanek
It’s mid-July and the back-to-school sales are starting to pop up. However, actually sending your little ones off with backpacks full of new supplies to fill their brains with new facts is still at least a couple of weeks away.
Knowing that keeping them busy … and happy … during these long summer days can be hard, we’ve rounded up some freebies to help you do just that. No thank yous necessary, just doing our job to make the world a better … and more sane … place!
Without further ado …
- Target: The superstore is offering a free Disney princess activity book and the best part is, you don’t even have to pack up the kids and head to the store to get it. Simply click here and print out the book. It’s full of activities for younger children like connect the dots puzzles, mazes and coloring pages.
- The Disney Store: Sticking with the kid-favorite, consider heading to the Disney Store near you. The stores are hosting “Summer Play Days” now through Sept. 1. Events include “Art of Animation, Trivia, Story Time and Showtime.” And each week, participation includes a free character button while supplies last. FYI, Frozen character buttons start the week of July 28 and run through the week of August 11. Just sayin’. For more information, click here.
- Lowe’s: If your little one, whether boy or girl, is more into cars than fairy tales, then this freebie is for you. Lowe’s is hosting another Kids Clinic on July 26 at 10 a.m. This time children will build a Turbo Taco Truck inspired by Dreamworks Animation’s movie “Turbo.” Click here to register.
And finally, this freebie is more about celebrating your family. Head over to CanvasPeople.com and score an 8×10 canvas of your favorite digital photo for just the cost of shipping and handling. Typically 8×10 photo canvases run about $30, plus shipping. So whether you’re going to give it to the grandparents or hang it in your own living room, this is a great way to share a favorite photo of your family.
