Family Fun and Free Food at the Murphy Chick-fil-A!

Chick-fil-A is delicious, and as I’m sure you already know, very kid-friendly.  I like it because I can turn my son loose in the play area, watch him through the glass, and scarf down my chicken sandwich in relative peace while he burns some energy.

The Chick-fil-A in Murphy is *extra* kid-friendly…and has activities planned almost every day of the month.  And not only that, but every Tuesday morning you can get free food.  Tuesday, July 17th, from 6-9 AM,  you can get complimentary Chik-n-minis (one per person, and be sure to ask for them).  You can see the other upcoming complimentary goodies here.

Every Tuesday night is Kid’s Night!  From 5-7:30 PM, you can get a free kid’s meal with the purchase of an adult meal.  Kids also get to make a craft and visit with the famous Chick-fil-A cow on Tuesday nights.

And guess what happens on Monday afternoons?

Yum! Milkshakes.

Mondays are Milkshake Mondays.  All shakes are half-price between 3-5 PM.

You can see a full calendar of upcoming events here.

If you’re not near the Murphy Chick-fil-A, have no fear!  Many restaurants have their own websites, with their own calendars, so check here to find the store closest to you.

One more thing!  Did you know that if you order a kid’s meal you can substitute the toy with a small ice cream cone?  Maybe this is common knowledge among the Chick-fil-A savvy, but I thought I should share just in case you didn’t already know. Because one less toy on the floor and free ice cream make me happy!

 If you live around Murphy, you may also want to check out the Wylie Rita & Truett Smith Public Library summer reading programs, or story time at the Firewheel Barnes & Noble…both offer fun indoor activities for the kids!
