Quality Time w/ The Kids Making Rice Krispies Treats #treatsfortoys

I absolutely love this time of year. The weather is getting colder and the Holidays are literally around the corner. In the Summer, I like to do outside activities with my kids, but in the Fall and Winter one of the things I love to do with my kids is bake together. Whether it’s something small or large, baking with the kids is so much fun. I start them off with everything we need to bake with and towards the end I let their imagination take over and just watch them enjoy themselves and have fun.
My son is a huge Disney’s Cars fan. I guess that’s sort of my fault. I remember being pregnant with him and deciding that his room would be decorated in the Cars theme. So it was only a matter of time before he was truly a fan without any influence from mommy or daddy and that he is. From the Cars movies, Maters Tall Tales and countless Car’s toys and stuffies, I can say that without hesitation that my son is a true fan and absolutely loves the characters in both the Cars movies.

Over the weekend I had a great opportunity to create some Rice Krispies Treats with my little ones and decided that since my son is a huge Cars fan I’d have the kids create their own race cars made out of Rice Krispies. 

Making Rice Krispies treats with my kids is always a fun and easy activity and gives us a chance to spend more quality time with each other. Since you don’t need much and you don’t really have to cook anything, this activity is great for families to do together where your kids can let their imagination and creativity run wild and that’s exactly what my kids did when creating their race cars.

Although my son loves the main character, Lightning McQueen, in the movie, Cars, he decided to create his race car after the character Francesco Bernoulli. Creating the race cars was so much fun and not hard to do at all. Although we think we may have made the cars a bit too big, nevertheless, we had a great time creating these race cars and the kids had so much fun decorating the cars with different icing and candy.

There are so many different things you can create out of Rice Krispies treats, which provides your family with hours of fun quality family time. Nothing brings warmth into our hearts quite like celebrating all the good that life has to offer around the holidays! I definitely had fun with my kids creating the treats and watching them decorate. This Holiday season, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal would like to partner with you and your family to turn delicious treats into toys for children in need across Canada.

Taking part is easy peasy:
(1) Make a toy-shaped treat using Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
(2) Take a picture of your treat
(3) Upload your picture to RiceKrispies.ca. For every original photo of a treat uploaded to their site, Kellogg’s will make a donation of $20 to the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army will then use the donations to buy to buy toys for children in need across Canada for the holidays.
