Mother's Day Recap and Giveaway Time!

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was great! We spent yesterday celebrating Mother's Day with the hubby's mom at brunch and my mom at dinner.  I love when we are able to see both families on a holiday.  Even though it means a ton of running around, it's worth it in the end not to have to choose one family over the other.

And the little guy?  He was a trooper.  Even though his schedule was thrown off and he's fighting a cold, he still managed to be just as happy as ever, even if he hasn't quite learned how to smile for pictures yet.

I promised I'd have a giveaway today, so I'm keeping true to my word! 

As a parent, I try to keep things fun and exciting for the little guy.  However, there's only so many walks you can take, so many toys to play with and so many games you can play before he gets bored out of his mind.  So when I was offered the opportunity from Crayola, Cheerios and MyBlogSpark, I jumped on it.  Disclosure: the information, products, and additional My First CrayolaTM gift pack was provided by Crayola® and Cheerios through MyBlogSpark.

The little guy loves anything to do with art.  Last Thursday, right before my broken camera incident, I broke out some of the Mess-Free Fingerpaint & Paper and some markers and let him go to town.  (The pictures below are the ones that were sent to me from MyBlogSpark because I didn't have a working camera at this point).




I was really skeptical of the Mess-Free claims - I mean really, how could fingerpaint be mess free?  Well, I'm here to say that it works.  It's basically a yellow-ish goop that you put on your fingers.  The paint makes a design only on the special paper.  There were numerous times the little guy tried to paint the kitchen table, but no paint transferred onto the table itself - there was a only a sticky residue that was easily wiped up with a baby wipe.  It's amazing!! If you are a mom of little ones, this is definitely something you'll want to have around.

The little guy was too involved in the fingerpaint to get involved with the markers and crayons, so I'm saving them for a rainy day.

So guess what?  You have the chance to win a prize pack yourself!  Your prize will contain:

My First CrayolaTM Washable Crayons
My First CrayolaTM Washable Markers
My First CrayolaTM Washable Stampers
My First CrayolaTM Washable Dry-Erase Activity Mat
One specially marked box of original Cheerios® cereal

All you have to do is answer the question of the day to win - winners will be chosen on Wednesday!

Question of the Day:
Which do you prefer - markers, crayons or fingerpaint?

Hope you have a great day!

Until next time!
