Some of the greatest perks of being a blogger is working with fabulous women who engage moms (Mom Central Canada), working with brands whom I trust and have trusted for eons (LEGO DUPLO), and participating in blog tours that are fun and help foster creativity with my little ones.
Oh, and when the swag makes their little jaws drop to the floor. (Thanks LEGO!)
Now before you get all “pshaw, that’s SO great for you” – there is DEFINITELY something in it for you too. Here’s what you need to know:
LEGO DUPLO has partnered with Today’s Parent for one of their LARGEST and MOST EXCITING campaigns ever. Each day, from February 27th through April 10th, LEGO DUPLO will be sharing one new way to play. Canadian moms: just check the Today’s Parent website each weekday to see a new “play challenge” that you can tackle with your little ones.
The awesome part: Moms will also be able to submit their own “play challenge” for the chance to win a trip for four to LEGOLAND Parks (Florida or California) and have their play idea featured in the calendar! The last five days of the 30 Days of Play Challenge will feature mom-generated ideas – it could be one of yours!
So if you’ve got some DUPLO on hand (chances are you do), have a few minutes to get creative with your children (which is much for fun than doing the dishes anyways), then submit your idea for a chance to win the ultimate family getaway! I’ll be participating in the challenges on frequent basis, but as the boys are still quite young, let’s just say that their creations will be a loose interpretation of the challenge, and will most likely require a little help from me :)
Now of course I couldn’t just receive a bunch of LEGO DUPLO and not let the kiddies play, so I did open one box – My First Fire Station:
(I may have helped with the final product a *tad*. And Reid may or may not have put about 25% of the pieces in his mouth. And Ryder may have tried to use the box as a skateboard. See? Fun times all ’round.)
Party Alert: If you’re free tonight (Monday, February 27th), please do join Mom Central Canada (@MC_Canada) for a #LEGODUPLO Twitter Party! The fun starts at 8:30pm EST, and of course, there will be great conversation and prizes. I’ll definitely be there twartying it up!
