My first goal is to make $20 a day with adsense. So far, I'm not even close. Some days I earn nothing, others I earn $2-$5. My traffic is just as weird too. Some days I get tons, other days, nothing!
What are some things I can do that are *free* to potentially boost both traffic and adsense earnings? I really want to reach this goal before the end of the year!
If your sites are about the Wii Fit and Nintendo DS, then you would post on gaming sites to gather interest, not webmaster sites.
You might also write articles and submit them to article directories to gain backlinks to your sites.

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
The following are the principle ways that you can improce site traffic.
1) Marketing & Site Promotion
2) Advertisements and PPC
3) Link Building for traffic
4) Link Building for seo
I tend to prefer Marketing and Link Building for traffic which are the best methods for webmasters that plan to be around 5 years from now. It's really important to build links for traffic and not the search engines. Every link that you build is a potential vistor. The nice thing is that your link traffic is not dependent on the search engines. Which is very important to your survival should you loose your rankings.
A Marketing Campaign is another great way to build traffic and the best part is that you can shape the image that you are projecting for your site. Some of the things that you can do are article marketing, press release, post on relevant forums and blogs. Newsletters and email opt ins are also great ways to market your site.
Of course you need to do what you need to do. SEO is probably the best way to get tons of traffic. A lot of the things that you need to do to obtain good organic search listings run contrary to what would be considered good marketing practices. But organic listings are the mpst powerful traffic and of course they are essentially free ads. The search engines give away the oragnic listings. So why not take advantage?
PPC and Paid Ads will depend on your budget and (ROI). At the least consider creating some banner ads.
