Are you ready for Cow Appreciation Day by Chick Fil A? I clare I am.
I have already began the DIY thrills !
It’s simple, easy and loads of family fun. The more you dress up, the more free food you will receive! Dress head to hoof in costume and you’ll get a FREE MEAL! Dress in a partial costume and you’ll get a FREE ENTREE! So dress your herd and get to your nearest Chick Fil A !
With four little boys and two teen girls in tow, there’s gonna be a lot of cutting, pasting and measuring. I can’t wait!
Here are some fun ideas to get your creative minds flowing:
- 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 and pajamas — just about any cow-spotted item will work. Just make sure you’re covered head to toe.
- 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 paper. 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 marker – and you’ll still get a FREE entrée.

I LOVE dressing my babies up. I do it every chance I get because I know soon and very soon, they will not want to have this type of fun with me.
The only thing is I always wait until the last day to make our costumes for EVERYONE, We then end up with the pdf print outs from the official Chick Fil A page, complete with black sweat pants and shirt with white construction sheet dots sporadically placed. Not exactly picturesque, but I’m going for broke this year! I gotta have something for the children to look back at a feel embarrassed by.
This year I want to get fancy! So I’m putting together my “Cow Ideas” early! If you find yourself lost as I often do, you may want to save this link for your own family prepping needs. Ok, now, be sure to click the highlighted links. You’ll go directly to the sources I placed here on my page. (I’m not reinventing the wheel- there are so many great ideas out there already) Like this one, it includes a cow’s udder!!! So Yes, the sky is the limit! Enjoy & have FUN!!!!
Heads Up friends…what counts as a full costume and a partial costume is up to your manager, so do your best. Watch more here from previous years! Mooooo! <—–Click to see an online album. Here’s the Tumbler page too!
P.S. I’ll share our pictures on Facebook when we are done so follow me over there! I maybe able to get my daughters to recreate this into a cow costume- complete with more printable templates from Chick Fil A.—— this would be too sweet—>
