Kroger $25 Gift Card Giveaway

Heather —  October 25, 2012


UPDATE: Giveaway Closed

I love the prices at our local Kroger, and I often visit their organic section. Just recently, I missed a chance to do a “Fill Up Your Cart & Save Event”. I was bummed. All you had to do was purchase 5 participating General Mills items and you would get a coupon for $5 off your next order.

I am sharing about this now anyway, because I am still able to do a giveaway for a $25 Kroger Gift Card! While it is too late for the particular event above, Kroger and General Mills still have good buys for you:)

Enter to Win! Your gift pack will contain:

$25 Kroger gift card

To enter, just leave a comment. Which General Mills products do you use? (Ends 10/30/12.)

“Disclosure: The gift card, information, and additional sample have been provided by Kroger and General Mills through MyBlogSpark.”

Lately, the evenings have been longer and the sun seems to sparkle brighter! Spring is around the corner…and not a minute too soon!

Although I like to say “I am not your activities director,” the truth is that during the cold, drab days of winter my children depend on me to encourage them use their imaginations. Little ones do need to know that the warm sun and gorgeous flowers of Spring are coming!

One thing my girls have always loved is playing picnic. In the Spring and Summer it is an uninhibited game played all over the yard with bits of flowers and juice as the main meal.

Today, we must create our warmth in the house…for hand-drawn flowers and berries and little treats are just a taste of things to come!

So, today, I asked my youngest to play Spring with me. She agreed that her dolls were in need of a picnic. So, I had a bit of quiet as she “set” everything up. Then, I pulled out some yogurt, blueberries, Cheerios, whipped cream, some small cookies and sprinkles!

What an easy game for mom~I relax while my daughter gets to show off how she can cook! At five, she has no trouble coming up with a yummy handcrafted Blueberry Cheerio Parfait and some Cream Pies (just little cookies with a bit of whipped cream on top)

The best part? She is so proud of herself and full of lovely thoughts of Spring and picnics. She offered to make more for dinner!

Sometimes the nicest things are the simplest!

Breakfast, Books & Book Shopping...My favorites!

Cheerios® , First Book and John Scieszka, are teaming up with a 100,000 Book Giveaway. Vote in support of their efforts and comment below to win your Cheerios Book Gift Pack!
Well, it is no secret that we love books around here. I suppose my kids have at least a hundred lying around throughout the house. I do try to share them and recycle them. I never really thought the piles of books might be evidence of how lucky we are monetarily.
Apparently, we are very lucky. Look at these statistics:

  • Over 80 percent of childcare centers serving low-income children lack age-appropriate books
  • The ratio of books per child in middle income neighborhoods is 13 to 1
  • In low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children

Wow. I consider myself a somewhat aware person, but 300 to 1? I would not have guessed that.
Well, the Cheerios family of cereals, First Book and Jon Scieszka, author of the popular “Trucktown” series and other children’s books, have joined together to deliver 100,000 books to community-based programs serving children in need – and they would love your help!

All you have to do is go online with your child and test your combined knowledge of children’s books by answering trivia questions related to “Trucktown” and other great children’s books.

Answer some questions like these

Answer some questions like these

For every trivia question answered correctly, you can cast one vote for the state you would like to receive books. The five states receiving the most votes will get 20,000 books each, for a total of 100,000 books.

Visit to test your knowledge and start voting!

I played the game and realized I need my little nephew to help answer the Truck questions…but it was fun. My state, Virginia is number 20, so I need to go vote more.

We also received a 100,000 Book Giveaway Package.
The kids had so much fun getting the pack. They tried to tear into the giant box of Frosted Cheerios (I made them wait until morning) and all read the little gift books which were included. That was funny, as the books are for younger readers…but they were also in both English/ Spanish, so my three teenagers were testing out their Spanish reading the books.

I quietly snuck out the Barnes & Noble gift card, which I will use at Christmas. Actually, that 1 in 300 number bothers me a bunch and I just may buy some books on sale and drop them off at a local shelter.
Enter to win a 100,000 Book Giveaway Gift Pack for your little readers! The gift pack includes an assortment of books from Cheerios, one of the many varieties of Cheerios cereals and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble.

Required Entry: Leave a comment telling me  “Why your State should receive 20,000 books ”
