Freebies for your family

Freebies for your family

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Marie Rossiter is a busy mother of two. She's been blogging for about 3-years.

The mom blog network has opened up a new world-- a world of free stuff right in your backyard.

"Kids can learn how to build a little wooden race car to bird houses, and everything's free," said Rossiter.

Marie found kids workshops at Home Depot and Lowe's.

"All the materials are provided," said Rossiter.

More free activities like story times and character greetings, even tea parties at Disney Stores, Barnes & Noble and Pottery Barn Kids.

And that's not all: free kids meals every night of the week at dozens of restaurants from Red Robin & Friday's to Fazoli's, Perkins, to Pizza Hut, even Lonestar Steakhouse.

It's not just limited to food. Marie found free clothes through online hand-me-down exchanges.

Businesses are even throwing out all the stops to reward your kids for good grades.

From a free glazed donut at Krispy Kreme, to free kids meals, pizza and ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery for good grades or perfect attendance. Don't forget to bring proof.

"A lot of sporting teams offer free tickets for kids who have a certain GPA," said Rossiter.

Marie has even found tickets to big national shows like Disney on Ice.
