Help for the Holidays Giveaway: Day 5 (CLOSED)

A Nation of Moms

We’re on our LAST DAY of our FIVE DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS (November 1st – 5th) valued at $700+ to help you survive the holiday season.

(View and enter the giveaway on Day 1, the giveaway on Day 2, the giveaway on Day 3, or the giveaway on Day 4)

While you slave away in the kitchen, wouldn’t it be nice to keep the kids a little occupied?  We’ve got you covered with this 2-pack giveaway from IKEA and Glee Gum.

For the older kids, Glee Gum‘s Make Your Own Candy Kits make excellent, hands-on lessons with a delicious treat afterwards.  Let them read the instructions, make the candy, devour the “goods” and clean up their own messes (as you watch out of the corner of your eye, of course).  It’s great even for those “young at heart” adults, and make great stocking stuffers as well!  To read my review on the Chewing Gum Kit, go here.  The winner will receive their choice of one kit.

For the younger kids, who still like to imitate everything you do (i.e. get in your way when you are trying to cook, clean, etc.), IKEA‘s realistic DUKTIG kitchen accessories will keep them out of your harm’s way and having fun.  They can feel all grown-up using the same kitchen gadgets as you do.  Read my review here.



***Giveaway closes November 11th @ 11:59 pm EST and winner will be chosen via Open to US Residents.***

Winner is will be emailed after the giveaway closes and also announced on this blog under the featured “Recent Giveaway Winners” section. Winner will have 72 hours to respond to my email, or another winner will be drawn. We will not share your email with third parties.
