BritMums & Kellogg's Rice Krispies #ColourMeInRK Project

This is my post as I am taking part in the BritMums and Kellogg's Rice Krispies - the #ColourMeInRK project with my son David, aged 9.

David was very pleased we were chosen to take part in this project. We are all big fans of Rice Krispies in our household. We love doing arts and crafts too, so this really was a perfect project for us.

I received a special box of Kellogg's Rice Krispies - whereby they have replaced the normal box cover with a special colour in front of Snap, Crackle & Pop along with a big case of colours for David to colour in as he wanted.

There are also fun activities on the Rice Krispies website and their colouring in picture is really fun as once you've had the fun of colouring in the picture, you also get the fun of bringing your picture to your life with their fab animation feature!

We cut the front of the box to make it easier to colour in, because David was very eager to get started but didn't want to risk crushing up his Rice Krispies!

Here's David making a start on his colouring in.
This project was really good, it kept David happy and entertained for hours. You can't smell it from my blog lol, but he coloured in some of the picture with scented colouring pens! He wanted to make it as colourful as possible and that he most certainly did! He also used some actual Rice Krispies to stick on the top of the bowl for effect which I thought looked really fun! He used glitter glue for the lettering, but it doesn't show up very well in the photo.

I think this whole concept was a great idea from Kellogg's - something to keeps the kids entertained on a rainy day or in the school holidays and it's made that bit extra fun by the fact that it is well known characters the kids get to colour in. Snap, Crackle & Pop are characters that most kids would instantly know.

So, here is a close up of David's entry into the #ColourMeInRK competition from BritMums and sponsored by Kellogg's Rice Krispies...

WIN: Case Of No Fear Energy Drink 26/07/2012

I won a case of No Fear energy drink as a runner's up prize on the No Fear Extreme Energy page on Facebook on 26th July 2012. I received it on 31st July 2012.

It's a good runners up prize! While I'm not the biggest energy drinks fan ever - I don't mind the occasional one when I really need an energy kick - my hubby is borderline addict to energy drinks lol so he was very pleased when the delivery came.

Thank you very much to No Fear!

WIN: Meal For 2 At Ed's Easy Diner, Cheshire Oaks 25/07/2012

I won a meal for 2 at the new Cheshire Oaks 'Ed's Easy Diner' from @eds_easy_diner on Twitter on 25th July 2012. I received it on 28th July 2012 in the form of a £25 gift card.

I live in Liverpool, so I'm not that near Cheshire Oaks, but it's only a train ride away! We sometimes go bowling at the Ten Pin and then to Vue cinema with our 9 year old son, David and my 10 year old sister, Latisha and that's in Cheshire Oaks anyway and we're planning on going again soon, so the £25 will go towards all of our meals - our first time at an Ed's Diner as well - sounds fun. The food sounds delightful - have a look at the menu and see for yourself. They've even got veggie options for Paul (hubby). I'm gonna struggle to choose between the Smokey Joe's burger, the Slick dog and the chicken classic! I'm also torn between sweet potato fries and the atomic American fries! Can't wait to try out their food though!

WIN: £25 Credit For Hungryhouse 07/07/2012

I won £25 credit from @hungryhouse on Twitter on 7th July 2012. It was credited to my account on 8th July 2012.

I was so please to have won this, it couldn't have come at a better time as we were a bit short of money too!

I bought a curry meal for £6.99 from Rainbow Spice Inn, which consisted of a lovely lamb madras with pilau rice (one of my favourite foods), poppadoms, mango chutney and a can of Sprite. And for hubby, I got a 7" vegetarian pizza for £2.70 and a veggie burger meal (consisting of veggie burger, fries and a can of Rio) for £2.99. He's a greedy pig, so he wanted lots of food!

David picked a kids nugget meal for £2.35, which consisted of 4 chicken nuggets, chips and a small drink (they never bothered to deliver a drink though) from Chicken Bazooka. My Mum and my youngest sister, Latisha (who is 10) were visiting us, so I got them something too. Like David, Latisha also chose the kids nugget meal (4 chicken nuggets, chips and a small drink), they also forgot to bring her drink so quite annoyed with them! I got them a sachet of tomato sauce each too for 10p each! My Mum picked the Bazooka BBQ ribs meal for £4.20 which consisted of 4 BBQ lamb ribs, chips and a can of Pepsi.

So managed to feed the whole family and still have £2.72 credit left towards a takeaway another day! Thanks Hungryhouse!

WIN: The Saucy Fish Co. Voucher 03/07/2012

I won a voucher from The Saucy Fish Co. on Facebook on 3rd July 2012 and I received it on 13th September 2012 (it wasn't their fault it was so late, they never received my message with my address in originally, maybe something gone funny with Facebook and when I chased up they hadn't received it so I re-sent my address and received them a couple of days later).

I'm looking forward to buying some of their lovely fish products as I love them! Thanks so much to The Saucy Fish Co.!
