Crayola Giveaway

Being that I'm the mom of two young boys, this is one of my favorite giveaways ever!

I often find myself in the arts and crafts section of Target or Walmart when it's time to buy a birthday present and I love all the different things that Crayola has. Naturally, when I was sent a big box full of new Dry Erase Crayola activities that are perfect for road trips, I was thrilled. The kids get to be creative without mess (or at least, without much mess--my kids have been known to make small messes with dry erase boards!).

There were several different activities inside of my box and I get to give another box away to one lucky winner. The following information comes directly from Crayola and MyBlogSpark:

  • With over 10 feet of coloring, the compact Color Wonder On the Go Tiny Tube lets kids tear off a perforated activity page for magical coloring fun at home or on the road.  The tube fits in the cup holder of a car and can store the included markers inside, making it a perfect on-the-go activity. Adhesive-backing allows paper to stay in place while coloring so kids can easily create anything imaginable.
  • Bring your friends on the road with the Disney and Barbie Crayola Color Wonder Mini Coloring Pad and Markers. With more pages than ever, kids will enjoy coloring a variety of pictures featuring some of their favorite characters. These fun coloring pads are also available in mini sizes that are perfect for tucking into a bag and bring them with you wherever you go.
  • Get back to basics and allow kids to draw what they see outside their car window or daydream and draw whatever they imagine with the Color Wonder Coloring Pad. Kids will be entertained in the back seat with 5 sheets of Color Wonder paper and 2 Color Wonder Markers that only leave a mark on special Color Wonder paper.
Create, erase, and create again with Crayola Dry Erase products that allow kids to unleash their inner artist over and over without carrying around hundreds of sheets of paper.
  • You’ll be all packed up and ready to go with the Crayola Dry Erase Travel Pack that features a dry erase surface, along with dry erase crayons, an eraser and a sharpener to help sustain hours of fun. Take out the game and activity templates and let kids challenge each other to different games using vibrant, washable markers.
  • Everyone can get in the game with the Crayola Dry Erase Zany Play that comes with four bullet tip dry erase markers and boards that your family can use to play games like tic-tac-toe, the dot game and mazes.
You know you want this stuff. Seriously. And if you don't have a little one, you can still enter to win and you can give away your prize pack to a kid you know. If you win, your gift pack will include:

  • Crayola Color Wonder On the Go Tiny Tubes
  • Color Wonder Coloring Pad
  • Color Wonder Barbie Mini Coloring Pad and Markers
  • Color Wonder Drawing Pad and Markers
  • Dry Erase Travel Pack
  • Dry Erase Zany Play
  • Princess and the Frog Mess Free Color Wonder Activity Sets

To enter, leave me a comment telling me which activity you would be the most excited about.

Ocean Spray Fruit Flavored Snacks Giveaway

I was recently chatting with my friend about how so many kids have awful allergies these days. Her son is in kindergarten and recently celebrated his birthday with his class. He couldn't take anything with peanuts or eggs. Eliminate eggs and you eliminate the most common birthday treats. She took fruit snacks. They are egg and peanut free. They also happen to be gluten free. It was a win/win/win situation.

They're also a good option when it's your turn to take the treat after a child's sporting event.

Or when your kid is freaking out hungry for some unknown reason and you're sitting at the doctor's office waiting to be seen and said kid is begging for food and you realize that there is a lone bag of fruit snacks hiding in the bottom of your purse. I'm just sayin'.

The good people at Ocean Spray know that we moms (especially those of us who aren't totally granola parents) have offered to let me giveaway 4 prize packs. Each pack contains 6 boxes of fruit snacks. They have 10 bags in each box so I'm basically giving away 240 bags of fruit snacks. (Sixty to each winner, of course.) If you have kids (or happen to be an adult that just really likes fruit snacks), leave a comment here. In the comment, please tell me which flavor of fruit snack you would like to see Ocean Spray come out with next. Be creative! The first four individuals to leave a comment will each receive 6 boxes of fruit snacks. You also need to email me at familyfishbowl@hotmail.com with your name, address and phone number so that I can submit your information to the good people at MyBlogSpark.

If you're reading this and the prize packs have already gone to the first four readers, you too can share in the joy of fruit snacks by going here and printing off a coupon to save $1.10 when you buy two boxes of Ocean Spray Fruit Flavored Snacks.
