Fun Cheap and Free Stuff for Kids

Cheap and Free Stuff for Kids

Everyone has loved my Free Stuff for New Moms article so much that I decided to share my favorite Cheap and Free Stuff for Kids!

There are so many great learning programs out there for kids….and many offer cheap or free introductory offers.  I’ve compiled a list of my favorites to share with you.  Most of these programs want you just to try out their program because they know you’ll fall in love and want to keep the monthly subscription….in fact I’ve kept several of these subscriptions because they are such a great deal!

Just make sure you read the fine print and know the cancellation policy  if you’re not interested in keeping the subscriptions.

1.  Citrus Lane – 40% off your first box!

Citrus Lane creates surprise packages for kids and their parents. They send an assortment of the best products–recommended by real moms and dads–right to your door each month. A Citrus Lane customer receives a beautiful box each month that is tailored to the age and stage of the child. The packages start with newborns, and go up to 5 years of age. In each box, subscribers get four to five top–rated products, along with insights into why to love and recommend these items.  USE this link and code Take40 for discount.

Fine Print- Kids look forward to receiving two new kits in the mail about once per month. No obligation to buy anything else — ever.  Read welcome letter for more information about club.

 7. Disney Movie Club

I’m such a Disney addict!!  We LOVE Disney books, movies, and (of course) trips in our house!!  Disney isn’t very big on discounting their movies so you’ll get a great price by using the Disney Movie Club.  To get these 3 movies for $1.99 you agree to purchase 5 more movies over the course of 24 months.  But, you can go ahead and purchase 1 movie at a deep discount with this introductory offer and then only have to buy 4 more movies in the next 2 years.

If you figure that the average Disney Animated Blu-Ray is $25 at Target or Walmart then this package would wind up costing you $200 (for all 8 movies)….obviously this would all be less if you’re buying DVDs but let’s stick with Blu-Rays since that’s what I order.  Now, when you purchase the 3 movies for $1.99 and purchase the 4th movie at the discounted rate of 14.95 then you’ll have just 4 movies to purchase at the regular price of 29.95.  So, you wind up spending 135.75 plus shipping and handling.  That means this movie club winds up saving you almost $100!  You can read all of the Membership Details by clicking Membership Details on the left menu here.

Now, my BIG suggestion is to use this movie to buy Disney Animated Feature Films…you’ll get the most bang for your buck because these rarely go on sale.  The other titles you’ll usually be able to find a deal during the holidays but Disney likes to keep their animated feature films at prime pricing.

7.  Kiwi Crate Free Trial

The free trial includes a sample activity. The Kiwi Crate regular crates include 2-3 hands-on projects.

Try Kiwi Crate for free! Enjoy a free sample-size project from one of our most popular crates! Only $3.95 shipping. You will be automatically enrolled in a Kiwi Crate monthly subscription*, and may cancel at anytime.

8.  Little Passports

Sign up for a Little Passports Early Explorers 12 month subscription for $12.95/month!

Little Passports sends adventures from a different part of the World for your child to explore every month!  You can choose either to explore the US or explore the World.  I got this subscription for Little Man and he LOVES learning about different parts of the World every month.  The kids get a cute little suitcase to keep all of the treasures they receive every month along with their very own passport that they’ll receive a stick for each destination they explore.

9. Reading Eggs

Little Man has discovered playing games on the computer and LOVES it!  The least I can do is make sure those games are educational! Reading Eggs is a unique online world where children ages 3-13 learn to read. Children have more than 1,000 activities, games, songs, golden eggs and other rewards which, along with feeling proud of their reading, really motivate children to keep exploring and learning with Reading Eggs.

10. National Geographic Animal Jam
