The *NEW* Trix Swirls & Creative Kid gift basket (plus 2 giveaways)

I have never tasted a cereal that tasted so fruity before I tasted the new Trix Swirls cereal! The cereal was so colorful~ like tie dye. The taste was sweet and it included the great Twix flavors of lemony green, berry berry blue, and rasporangey orange! MyBlogSpark sent me the Creative Kid basket to review which included: one box of the new Twix Swirls cereal, a tie dye apron, watercolor paints, brushes, supply box, sketch paper and watercolor pencils.

Caleb was super excited to wear the apron, and it matched his new shirt that he just made, so that was very cool! The kids both loved the cereal, too.
My kids love to do art projects. They fully enjoyed painting and talking about the colors. We talked about how the colors look when they mix~ just like the Trix Swirls cereal.
It was such fun watching the kids create their masterpieces. They do the art activities almost daily, and the watercolor painting is top on their list now. We really had a great time reviewing the Trix Swirls cereal, and having fun with the Creative Kid gift basket!
Thank you MyBlogSpark for the Creative Kid Basket and Trix Swirls cereal! We heart you!!
You have a chance to win a Creative Kid gift basket, too! There will be two winners! Here is what you can win: a sample of the product along with a colorful apron, a set of watercolor pencils, watercolor paints, brushes, a sketchbook, and an art supply box!! To enter: ask your kids how they think the colors got together (did they dance around? Spin with one another too quickly? etc.), or You can ask what are some of their favorite things they would swirl together? Contest ends on August 13, 2009.

**For extra chances you can: blog this contest, add my button to your site, subscribe to my blog, twitter and/or facebook this contest, and/or visit everyday and add another friendly comment. Lots of chances to win! Don't forget to put the extra comments for the "extra" work. Good luck!**

My kidlets think Trix Swirls were created when there was no more milk and they used orange juice on their Trix instead. When the orange juice hit the Trix, WHEEEE!!!! the Trix exploded into all kinds of fluorescent colors and became Trix Swirls!! Thank you for the contest!

Ryan says his favorite things are dirtbikes and swords, so he'd swirl them together to make a swordcycle. The seat would be hooked to the blade, the handlebars would be the cross part of the blade handle.

My granddaughter says they were made by the Easter Bunny from left over Easter eggs. My granddaughter loves to mix M & Ms and whipped cream. garrettsambo2aol.com

rbailey1958 said...

The grandkids think different things about how this cereal came about 2 look this way this is what each 1's answer was: They were in a tornado, they were tie-dyed, they were painted, & they were were pooped out by the bunny at Easter time 2 B colorful 4 Easter. All 4 grandkids do agree on 1 thing, they love the cereal. I didn't ask them what they like swirled together, but if my answer counts, since I am a big kid too, I would have 2 say I love 2 swirl Hershey bar w/chocolate together, and instant coffee granuels w/vanilla ice cream, delish!
