Trade Treats for Toys with Kellogg's Rice Crispies #TreatsForToys

Christmas is a time for giving, and it's an important part of our family's Christmas celebrations to give back to our community in some way, to help those in need. Each year we choose and purchase special toys to donate to local toy drives, we donate cash to the food bank so that others can have a healthy and nutritious festive meal, and we make an annual donation to the Salvation Army to support their work around the holidays. We talk to the boys about what we are doing and why. We want to make sure that at this time of year when we experience so much "excess" that they realise how lucky we are and how important it is to share our privilege with others. So when I see brands working to give back to communities, that's something I can get behind in a heartbeat.

This holiday season, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal would like to partner with families across Canada to turn delicious treats into toys for children in need. It's an easy and fun concept. 

1. Create and decorate a special Rice Krispies treat in the shape of a toy. You can find instructions for a variety of tasty toys at, or make your own.
2. Take a digital picture of your treat.
3. Visit and upload your image. 

It’s that simple! For every original photo of a treat uploaded to, Kellogg will make a donation of $20 to The Salvation Army, up to a maximum of $30,000. The Salvation Army will use this donation to buy toys for children in need across Canada this holiday season.

Boo and I created a race car this afternoon, following the instructions provided by Kellogg. They also sent along a box of goodies to make and decorate our creation. We threw in some items we already had and made a few alterations to suit our supplies.

I'm off now to upload our creation to to trigger another $20 donation to the Salvation Army. Why not join me?
