I look forward to this day every year like a sugar-obsessed child. July 11th, one week from yesterday is Free Slurpee Day.
Whether you choose Cherry, Coke, Blue Raspberry, Banana (Eeeewww), or one of the other less popular flavors, you can score a free small sized Slurpee from 11am-7pm and your local participating 7-11 location on July 11th.
The kids and I will be at our local 7-11 location at 11am on the dot, ready to get our slurp on!
Make or buy your cow costume (or any sort of cow apparel, really).
Wear your cow costume to your favorite Chick-fil-A between Opening and 7 p.m.
Receive a free entree!
To find the full details and a list of what you can receive for free, check out this page. Kids get a kids meal, and adults get an entree (but free is free, so woo hoo!).
We love free events! In order to participate and keep our our out of pocket low, I re-purpose stuff around the house to suit our needs for the event. Last year I made Henry and myself shirts and kept them. His shirt was a little too big and thankfully he has grown up, not out. It might be a little shorter than he’d like, but it will do. he’s got black shorts to wear as well )I’ll probably wear black yoga pants).
I painted a Cow onsie for Bitty Bird last year, but it doesn’t fit. I think I gave it to someone who was going to have a baby.
I made tails from pieces of felt, and pinned them to the shirts (and the back of Bitty’s tutu). We will be re-using our tails again this year too. I’ll be making new ears for all of us. Mine will be attached to hair clips, Henry’s will be on a head band.
I dug through her closet and found a black shirt for her, a white tutu, and a headband that I can sew a couple cow ears onto. To cow-ify it, I painted white spots onto the shirt.
To keep the paint from seeping through the shirt and the paint sticking the shirt together, I re-used an old Amazon shipping envelope.
We had all of this stuff in the house, so it will cost us nothing! I will be kicking down a few bucks for a large sugar free lemonade!
