Rice Krispies Treats For Toys (Giveaway!)

 

 

One of my favorite part about this time of the year are all of the holiday traditions. You know, like the family dinners. Or hanging the lights outside of the house while my clumsy butt tries not to fall off of the ladder. Or walking into a store the day after Halloween, seeing Christmas merchandise already out on display, and muttering to myself that it’s way too soon for that stuff.  Yup, I do love this festive season. And in the spirit of traditions, my good friends at Kellogg’s are celebrating the fifth annual Rice Krispies #TreatsForToys program!

They have once again partnered with The Salvation Army to encourage Canadian families to create a toy-shaped Rice Krispies treat and submit a photo on TreatsforToys.ca or share it in social media using the hashtag #TreatsforToys. Then, for every photo uploaded or shared on social, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army for the purchase of a toy for a Canadian child in need during the holidays.  They’re also issuing a new challenge, if you’re down for it – include a moving part into your toy shaped treat (don’t worry, you’re still cool if you don’t)!

To help spread the word, Kellogg’s sent me the following package (not the tree, though! That’s ours, and was used for artistic decor. Feel free to go “ooh” and “ahh”. Or not. Probably not), so my family could make their own delicious toy creations:

I let B and J do the honours.

And after me constantly telling them to stop sucking on the icing and eating all of the ingredients much hard work, here are their Rice Krispies “Mastoypieces”. Yes, I made that word up. Anyway, we weren’t able to incorporate any moving parts, unless you consider heaping globs of gooey icing dripping down as moving parts:

A half eaten car by B.

A princess by J.

 

Make. Share. Give.

Simple, right?

And to make it even simpler, how about I give you the same package that I got from Kellogg’s? Enter the contest below for your chance to win a prize pack!

Happy holidays, y’all!

Since it is the holiday season, Kellogg’s, for the fourth year in a row, is celebrating their Rice Krispies Treats For Toys Program. And for the second year in a row, I’m going back to back like Drake, and helping to promote this cool initiative.

Kellogg’s has once again partnered with The Salvation Army to encourage Canadians across the country to create a toy-shaped Rice Krispies treat and share a photo on TreatsforToys.ca, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #TreatsforToys.

For every photo uploaded or shared on social, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army for the purchase of an actual toy for a child in need during the festive season. Make. Share. Give.

Simple, right?

To make it even simpler for yours truly, my friends at Kellogg’s sent me this sweet package, full of all the neccessary supplies:

Feeling inspired, the kids and I set to work on our masterpieces.

Here’s B’s:

A basketball? Now that’s straight ballin’!

J came up with this:

And here’s mine:

What? It’s an Xbox.

Get it?

I’m sorry. I kinda suck at this stuff. For other, non sucktacular ideas, be sure to visit www.TreatsforToys.ca to view the toy-shaped treats made by your fellow festive Canadians.

Anyway, spread the love! Get creative and share your creations for a good cause this holiday season.

And speaking of spreading the love, how about I hook you up, the same way that Kellogg’s hooked me up. Enter below for your chance to win a prize pack!

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies #TreatsforToys

treatstoys

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!

Ta-da!

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.
