#TreatsForToys Is A Rewarding Way To Help Kids This Holiday Season

Are you a Rice Krispies treats fanatic?

Yes!?

Would you like to make Rice Krispie treats AND help children who would otherwise go without toys this holiday season?

Of course you would!
The Treats For Toys program is entering it’s fourth year and I am so proud to embark on my third year with this initiative. I love the simplicity of being able to Make, Share and Give.

Not only did I talk about it on TV…

I talked about it on the radio too!

Here’s how it works:

1) Make yourself a pan of Rice Krispies treats

2) Cut ’em up, mold them into toy shapes and decorate them! Be creative!

3) Share your creations on the treatsfortoys.ca website OR on social media with the hashtag #TreatsForToys

Can you guess what happens next?

Yep, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies donates $20 (per image upload) to the Salvation Army, who in turn will buy toys for children in need this Christmas!

Easy-peasy right?

I’m not the most creative person in the world but I did happen to make a few treats to upload too.

Check them out!

 Tinsel Train

Natalie Bell from pegcitytest2.dev

Instructions                                                                                      

Once the Rice Krispies* treats are prepared and cool to the touch, cut one big rectangle, one small rectangle and four small circles from the mixture in the pan.

With icing, attach the small rectangle to the big rectangle at the farthest end.

Take the four small circles and attach one to each outside rectangle as the wheels of the train.

To complete the train, decorate with the candies and icing of your choice.

Blitzen’s Reindeer Building Blocks

Instructions                                                                                      

Once the Rice Krispies* treats are prepared and cool to the touch, cut out two medium-sized squares and two medium-sized rectangles from the mixture in the pan.

2.     To create your building blocks, place candy in a grid pattern on top and attach using icing.

CUTE EH?!?

You must be wondering, how did she make those? Basic shapes people, basic shapes! I am no Picasso or Leonardo hahaha


Simple.

Ok folks, what are you waiting for?

Make those treats and have a blast doing it!

    That is such a nice thing for Kellogg’s Rice Krispies to do! We love the Salvation Army and try to help them out especially during the holidays so it’s nice to know that Kellogg;s is also doing the same.

    Such a great program. We support #TreatsforToys every year and we also adopt a local family in need.

    We did this last year, however, from your photo we may need to get a little more creative. 🙂
