Chick-fil-a Cow Appreciation Day – Free Meal

Chick-fil-a Cow Appreciation Day 2013

In celebration of Cow Appreciation Day ,  Chick-fil-A will award a FREE Meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) to any customer who comes to one of one of the 1,600+ restaurants fully dressed as a cow, and a free entree for partial cow attire.

Chick-Fil-A Cow Appreciation Day will be held on July 12, 2013.

You can buy a cow costume at a local costume retailer or have some fun with this summer project by making one at home.
Here are some ideas:

  1. Start with items that you already have at home – cow-printed accessories stashed in your closet will work perfectly. Hats, vests, scarves, neckties, pants, shoes, pajamas – just abut any cow-spotted item will work. Just make sure you’re covered head to toe.
  2. Wear white, and then just add spots. Throw on a white T-shirt with white pants (even sweatpants) and stick on your spots using black contact paper. If contact paper is not easily accessible, you can cut spots out of construction paper and tape them to your shirt and pants. If nothing else, you can grab an old white T-shirt and color black spots all over it with a magic marker – and you’ll still get a free entrée.

    My kids and I did this last year for lunch. ( I went in right when they opened so I wouldn’t have to wait in line and less people to laugh at me haha.) We all got the full meals. We used they had posted and I cut out additional spots from black and white construction paper. I took the tails and attached them to ribbon so it looked like they had long tails. I dressed my daughter in white tank top and black shorts and my son in a white tee shirt and black shorts and I had on a white tee shirt and black pants and attached all of our spots all over. I used the signs and attached them to ribbon and hug them around our necks. I even took a black eyeliner (something free I had gotten) and used it to draw cow noses. I didn’t have to spend anything and we rec’d 3 free meals. Totally worth it. I can’t wait to do it again this year.

    Last year they had a printable pattern on their website that you could print, cut out, and tape to your clothes. We did that, but I have to say that the homemade ones we saw were so cute and creative!

      We did this also, but I cut out extra black and white spots from construction paper, used eyeliner (something I had gotten for free) to draw cow noses. I let the kids color in the signs. We also wore black bottoms and white tops and attached tons of spots all over. I attached those signs to ribbon and hung them around our necks and also too the tail piece and used ribbon to attach around our waist with a long piece hanging down (tail piece attached to it) so that it looked like a cow tail. The ears I cut out and attached to contruction paper in a strip that I fitted around their heads in order to make the ears floppy and have them stay. I should have kept it all so that I didn’t have to do it all over again this year. I think I used packaging tape in order to attach all the pieces to the clothing. Totally worth free meals, especially since I did not have to spend a dime in order to make the outfits.
