Earn FREE Scholastic ® Books | Make Every Day a Big Day #MiniMoments

This is a sponsored conversation by me on behalf of Kellogg’s(R) Frosted Mini-Wheats(R). The opinions and text are all mine.

The holidays bring a natural reason for our family to dig into our craft bin. Emma and Ethan love to decorate the house (every square inch if they could) for every holiday. This year with Halloween coming up I decided to dig up a quick and easy project that they would love.

This Spooky Glow Jar activity takes minimal supplies (all were purchased at the Dollar Tree) and is something I can let Ethan do start to finish. Seeing the look on his face when we sit side by side making our own crafty items together… it’s worth every penny (and more).

Fortunately our craft was more than just fun… it was also part of a challenge.

What challenge you ask?

Scholastic® & Mini Wheats® have teamed up for a Make Every Day Big challenge to earn FREE SCHOLASTIC BOOKS.

It’s as easy as completing monthly missions to earn free Scholastic books and be entered into a sweepstakes.

When your family completes a Mini™ Mission, you can earn free Scholastic books for your family and a chance to win prizes for your school and community.

    It’s a shame I just stumbled upon this post. Oh well, we still have 2 months worth of missions. I love that this brings families together and encourages reading.
