In our house the holidays are about families and giving, but sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in all the to do’s and the to get’s. That’s why I was excited to focus on giving for Scholastic and Kellogg’s® Frosted Mini Wheats® “Every Day is a Big Day” program.
They want to bring families together and are inviting families to complete monthly missions for an opportunity to earn free Scholastic books and a chance to win prizes for your school and community.
Some of the Mini™ Missions for the year included: Nutrition Tradition, Outdoor Explorer, Creative Moments, Conversation Bites and this month’s it’s Give and Get back.
While I love seeing the excitement on my kids faces when it comes to the holidays-from decorating the tree, to seeing all the lights, and all the presents and treats, I also want them to know that the holidays is not about about things and getting, but giving.
So for our Decembers’s Mini™ Mission- I wanted them to not just learn about giving, but actually do it. I took them to our local food drive where we dropped off food, we also picked up presents for a local family my son’s class is sponsoring, and we made special personalized cards to go with our donations. They were excited to wrap the the presents, decorate the cards and drop everything off.
I believe it’s not just about telling them, but by getting them involved I hope they have a better understanding of what it means to give. I know the kids really enjoyed helping and I think everything you show them makes an impact.
Each month, log in and complete a new Mini™Mission to earn 2 free Scholastic books for your family.
When your family completes a Mini™ Mission, you are also entered into a sweepstakes where prizes will be awarded to schools and communities each month. Everything from teacher gift cards to scholastic book sets for classrooms, $200 PTA grants, and even a Book Nook Library Makeover.
