Kellogg’s Treats for Toys: Create a Toy, Have Fun & Rice Krispies w/ Salvation Army Will Donate A Toy to A Child in Need. #TreatsForToys


Treats for Toys.
Making a difference.

And it’s as easy as snap, post and tweet! This year it’s easier than ever to share the spirit of the season by taking part in the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies #TreatsforToys program. Canadians from coast-to-coast can participate simply by creating a toy-shaped treat out of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal. Participants can take inspiration from five toy-shaped recipes found on RiceKrispies.ca or can get creative and develop their own toy recipe. With no baking required, everyone in the family can join in the fun.

We love participating in this program every year, it is not only fun but, it feels good to be able to help someone in need. We get the kids involved, we explain to them the significance of the program and that Salvation Army has teamed up with the great people of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies to help kids in need. 


A Toy for A Toy.

Bust out the essentials and have fun with it. Have leftover Halloween candy? Use it! Plus, you have plenty of inspiration with Rice Krispies fun and new characters to transform into a toy. There are 5 to choose from and you’ll find  a few NEW toy-shaped treats, if you want to get creative, you can make up your own design! 

  • Create your toy-shaped treat using one of five Kellogg’s Rice Krispies recipes available on RiceKrispies.ca or design your own!
  • Take a picture of your treat and upload the picture to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the #TreatsforToys hashtag.
  • Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will donate $20 to The Salvation Army to buy a real toy for a child.



Meet Vinny.
That’s Vinny Vroom.

There’s nothing like the need for speed, instead of going on an open-sleigh ride, you can hop in this super car and cruise! We got inspiration from the Rice Krispies site and this is our version of Vinny. You can take a virtual ride with Vinny, here.  Vinny was all smiles and ready to take-off, with race stripes and all. I’m glad that he will be transforming into a $20 donation towards a toy for a child who will appreciate it.


Yummy the Bunny.

Well, I can attest that he is very yummy! We had a ball making him, he was a bit more difficult to make, especially since it was a challenge to get him to stand and “hop” around. When he finally got a sturdy stance, he posed for the picture above! 

TIP: Rinse hands with cold water while handling the Rice Krispies treats. It can get sticky!

We had a lot of laughs at his eyes that kept falling off and the licorice that just didn’t want to stay on. But, in the end, we got it! Our solution was to use an edible marker to make the eyes and buttercream to stick!

It’s Your Turn.

This year, Rice Krispies has made it even easier to share! All you have to do is share your toy creations to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #TreatsForToys or you can upload them to the RiceKrispies.ca website. The more toys shared the more toys that will be donated! This is an easy, low-cost and fun way to teach your kids to start giving back when they can. I can’t wait to see all of YOUR creations!



Give Back.

While the holidays will bring celebrations, carols around the fireplace, the smell of turkey permeating the house, family, friends and gift-giving all around. It’s a great time to give back, I think that it is what gets you into the holiday spirit. Knowing that in a small way you were able to make someone’s holidays a bit brighter.

So, what will you make?

Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
