Yes Kai you can do it. The sentences are correct without "for". I would suggest you not using "for" at all in these type of sentences. "For" introduces a duration - time passing. "A few times" is not duration, it is a few instances. I hope this helps!

Not only can you omit “for” in those sentences, it doesn’t work at all with the “for”.
