For the third year in a row, Kellogg’s is doing something really cool this holiday season, to help bring a smile to some children in need. Once again, they’ve partnered with the Salvation Army for the #TreatsforToys program! And this year, for the first time, I have the honor of helping promote this great initiative.
It’s pretty easy for you to get involved, too. All you have to do is make some delicious Rice Krispies Treats, and then use them to make a toy-shaped treat. You can either use one of the five example recipes shown at www.treatsfortoys.ca, or you can design your own creation. After you are done, share your work on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the #TreatsforToys hashtag. For every picture uploaded between now and December 21, 2015, Rice Krispies will donate $20 (to a maximum of $30,000) to the Salvation Army, to go towards buying toys for children!
Perhaps realizing that I’m not the most creative dude, Kellogg’s even made things easier for me. They sent me a Rice Krispies #TreatsforToys Kit!
What’s that, you say? You want to see what is actually in the kit, preferably with my daughter posing beside it ,like Vanna White?
That’s a really random request, but you got it!
Chock full of inspiration, the kids and I narrowed our choices down (a princess by J and and a dinosaur by B), and we went to work!
OK, OK, you got me. They made a mess and gobbled the candy decorations, while I baked.
Eventually, however, we did finish our masterpieces! B’s dinosaur:
And J’s princess:
One of our recent family holiday traditions has been getting B and J to pick out toys that they don’t play with anymore, which they would like to donate. Just our own little way of giving back. Admittedly, the first time we tried this, it didn’t go so well. It has gotten better, though.
Not surprisingly, my kids found the Rice Krispies #TreatsforToys program to be a more fun (and yummy) way to help out a good cause!
Speaking of giving back, how about I hook you up, like Kellogg’s hooked me up? Enter below, for your chance to win a free Rice Krispies Kit.
