On the second Saturday of each month, participating JCP locations host free JCPenney Kids Zone crafts events. These craft events take place in JCPenney stores with a Kids Zone area, and you can attend the next one on Saturday, Sep. 9, 2023. Parents can shop JCPenney in-store with a special 10% off coupon that stacks with other coupons for additional savings.

JCPenney joins The Home Depot and Lowe’s in offering free kids’ workshops on weekends each month. All of these classes are free for kids, and supplies are provided. Additionally, Home Depot and Lowe’s both require preregistration for their craft workshops. You do not need to sign up in advance for the JCPenney events.

If you can’t make it to an in-store event, Home Depot offers these craft kits online so you can purchase a $5 kit and make it at home. But for more information on the JCPenney Kids Zone crafts classes, keep reading.

Plus, never miss out on a free kids’ event when you download The Krazy Coupon Lady app with money-saving tips and deals.

Select JCPenney stores host these free JCPenney Kids Zone crafts classes on the second Saturday of each month. The 2023 classes started on Jan. 14, 2023. These events are held at participating JCPenney locations that have Kids Zone areas located in store. Classes run from 11 a.m. to noon local time, and kids receive all of the supplies to create the month’s craft. In addition, they also go home with an ID badge, lanyard Collector’s pin, and a Master’s Medallion after completing six crafts.

The October 2023 craft gives your child a choice between a fun fall scene and a spooky Halloween haunted house. Supplies for the fall scene include a foam base, scarecrow, crow, and pipe cleaner wheat talks. The haunted house kit includes a foam base, house, ghosts, tombstones, and pipe cleaner bats. These crafts are designed for school-aged kids, and parents must be in attendance. You don’t need to preregister, but craft supplies are limited, so arrive early.
