Red Box Giveaway

As promised, I'm hosting my first giveaway! This is to celebrate the start of fall and the increased traffic to this site lately. The prize is three redbox codes which are good through Dec. 31, 2008. For those who have never heard of redbox, it is usually located at McDonald's or a grocery store. You can rent new release DVDs for $1.00 a day. To see if there is one in your area click here. I like to visit the redbox near my house to get date night movies or entertainment for my child. My husband and I like to have a date within our house after the wee one is in bed and these cheap movies make for a great date night.

To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment about a great winter family activity you enjoy doing. I have a very active toddler and winter can become hard on both of us with being stuck inside each day. I'm looking for new ideas to keep us entertained since winter is just around the corner. I occasionally will get a redbox as a treat when the weather is nasty and our little monkey has a blast watching something new. So, leave me an idea and I will enter you in the contest.

This giveaway ends next Wednesday, Oct. 1 at 9 pm CST. I will randomly choose a winner at that time and they have 48 hours to contact me to claim the prize. If I find an idea I particularly love, I may even choose two winners.

To receive more entries:
1. Subscribe to my feed and leave an additional comment stating you subscribed.
2. Post about my giveaway on your blog.

Edited: This contest is open to those outside of the U.S. as long as you have a redbox and they accept codes. I will email the codes to you, rather than mail them though.

I know this is going to sound crazy, but my kids had a blast just recently when our electric went out...we sat around in the candlelight and played games...board games, word games, etc. I told my hubby that we need to pretend like the electric goes out at least once a week ;)

I love your blog! :) We like to have a dance party when we have to stay inside. I also like to buy face paint on clearance after Halloween and just let the kids go crazy. When we go outside in the winter, we put water mixed with paint or food coloring in spray bottles and paint the snow. Bubbles are also really fun when it is below freezing - it is fun to watch them freeze and pop.

I like to make some comfort foods and settle in for a long night of catching up on a rented tv series. There are some really good shows on dvd now!

Favorite Winter fun to do with kiddies is get a small baby pool and fill it with pasta...lots of fun indoors...the kiddies love it!! Just make sure you stock up on pasta when it goes on sale!!

Where I live we dont get much snow but when we do the whole family loves to get together and play in the snow and build snowmen.

My favorite winter activity is to host a snow play day followed with a hot chocolate tasting party (think wine party for kids). It does not have to be a huge group and can even be done with just you and your child.

For one of those days you really can't get out, grab a ball of yarn and go crazy! Wrap it around door knobs, coffee tables, chairs, etc. making a simple pattern for the younger ones and a more complex one for the older kids. When finished hand the child the end of the yarn so they can follow the trail. This activity does require parental supervision though!!

Great giveaway! Last winter, my daughter was so little, all she did was sleep. This year I am thinking of activities like playing in the snow, making forts and other fun indoor things for her to climb through. Probably stock up on library videos too!
