A Swirled Up Giveaway from MyBlogSpark ~ Trix anyone?

Wednesday, August 12, 2009 Hand-posted by Jennifer

MyBlogSpark sent my daughter a birthday present.  Well, technically I gave it to her for her birthday because it was just so cute & amazing but the timing was perfect considering her birthday was this month.image

All of my children love Trix so I was already happy to see the Spark come from MyBlogSpark about a Trix giveaway.  So, I responded Yes, that I would like to participate in the yummy giveaway.

I was super excited when I received the box and it was filled with such amazingly cool stuff for a kid to swirl together.

I hid the package and wrapped it up as a birthday present.  What? Considering all the cool, messy stuff that was inside (you know, paint)  I actually think that this present hit it off better than a few of the other things that Mimi opened.

How much more fun can you have watching a 3 year old put on a paint apron and draw picture of Mommie swirled up into 3 or 4 different colors?  Cause it’s one thing to see cereal milk turn different colors but Mommie is another story.

Want to win your own gift basket for your cute kiddos to play around with?  I have two baskets to giveaway from MyBlogSpark. The basket will include a sample of the yummy new Trix Swirls cereal along with a colorful apron, a set of watercolor pencils, watercolor paints, brushes, a sketchbook and an art supply box. 

How to Win? Leave a separate comment for each extra entry! Make sure you leave an email address for me.


  • Mandatory comment: What are some weird foods that your kids swirl together? 
    For fun you can go here to read how my son eats a weird Bologna, Peanut Butter, Hot Dog sandwich.

    I have been pretty fortunate that my kids have not had any strange combinations yet, but my little brother (he is 20 years younger than me) used to love to "cook" for me. His favorite thing to make was bologna, ketchup, and strawberry yogurt, all mixed together. Blechh!!!
