*Updated for 2014* Big List of over 50 Freebies for Good Grade Report Cards!

*Updated Freebie List - February 2014*

Whether those report cards come every 6 weeks, 9 weeks, or on some other time schedule, it is always fun to reward the Kiddos for their hard work. I know I love seeing the pure joy and excitement my girls have on their faces when they get free donuts from Krispy Kreme after showing their report cards. With my youngest, it is usually a face smeared with icing, a grin from ear to ear and her eyes sparkling with pride... or is that the sugar high and mischief on her mind?  Either way, they love getting those free donuts, and I love taking them there, they earned it! 

Here are a bunch of fun ways to reward
them without breaking the bank!
