Calling All Cows!!!

The day we've been eagerly awaiting since last summer is less than a week away . . .

Cow Appreciation Day!

Grab your herd and rush to your nearest Chick-fil-A on Friday, July 13th.  If you and your kids arrive dressed like cows from head to hoof, you will all receive FREE combo meals, which include your choice of chicken nuggets, chicken strips, chicken cool wrap, or the classic chicken sandwich, plus waffle fries and a drink!!

If you don't know where a Chick-fil-A restaurant is located, click on the Chick-fil-A Locator to find the nearest location!

If you have questions about Cow Day, or want to print out some official spots, click here to visit the Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day website.

Creating a Cow Costume:

If you find yourself wondering what on earth to wear, here are some ideas from the website:

  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.
  3. Go to your local paint or hardware store and get a white painter's hat and overalls. And then decorate yourself with spots made out of contact or construction paper.

We simply decorate white T-shirts with black fabric paint or a black Sharpie and pair with white or black pants/shorts/skirts decorated with black or white spots!   It's not hard!  Just be creative!!
