Spread the joy with #TreatsForToys (and a giveaway)

It’s that time of year again. The time of year when you are making your lists and checking them twice. The time of year when you are searching high and low for the perfect gifts for everyone on that list. It can be exhausting and even frustrating at times but it’s also a lot of fun. Because nothing feels better than giving. In our home we try to make giving something that we do all year long. It doesn’t matter if it’s money, food, or your time – giving is one of the most valuable lessons we can teach our children.

My daughter has a particular soft spot for helping hungry children. So giving to our local food bank is something we do all year long. Obviously helping to feed hungry children is important but we all know that kids need other things too. Things like toys. Toys are such an important part of a child’s development and helping to make sure children have a toy under tree during the holidays is pretty special. I’m very fortunate as a blogger to have a few extra toys kicking around every year to donate to kids that might not otherwise receive one. And the great news is that each and every one of you can help put a toy in the hands of a child this year too.

The Kellogg’s Rice Krispies #TreatsforToys program helps you help kids! It’s really easy and it’s really fun. All you need to do is whip up a batch of yummy Rice Krispies treats and make it into a fun toy shape. Once you’ve made your creation just share in on Twitter, Facebook (be sure to make that post public) or Instagram using the #TreatsForToys hashtag or upload it on For every original image shared from now until December 21 Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army to buy a toy for a child in need during this festive season. It’s that easy!

If you want some inspiration you can check out the templates or the other creations people have submitted on the website. Or search the hashtag on social media. This year Molly decided she wanted to make a unicorn:

treats for toys

I think she did a pretty good job! I want to see your creations so get your thinking caps on and get creating! You have until December 21st to share your Rice Krispies creation!


I have a quick and fun little giveaway for my readers. To celebrate this season of giving one lucky reader will win a Rice Krispies kit, with everything you need to make some amazing #TreatsForToys yourself!


The giveaway is open to Canadian readers (except Quebec) age 18 and over. Enter using the form below. Good luck!
