Clorox Clean Up Plus Fun Contest and Recipe!!!

Howdy all!! Social Moms is at it again:) This time they have teamed up with Clorox. Everyone knows Clorox and what a great brand they are. Not only for bleach but also as a family brand that helps you clean house anytime. Well, they have recently come up with a Recipes for Fun website and what sounds like a neat contest, the Ultimate Mess Party Contest!! Now there are ways you can win coupons, gift cards, etc. And you can win a gift card just by viewing recipes on the site! One random winner is chosen to receive a gift card for clicking through and looking at recipes. If I were you, I would be heading over there to check it out:)

So anyways, Social Moms has teamed up with Clorox and I am going to be giving some hints as far as what we do to make family time fun with arts, crafts and food. You didn't know they could be mixed did you? Well, they sure can and boy can it get fun!!

One of our favorite things when we were young was making pancakes into different shapes. Ever used cookie cutters to make snowman pancakes? We used all types of cookie cutters. So this has turned into something we do quite a bit. Especially on a Saturday morning it is good to get the kids up and into the kitchen helping. And what better way to do it than to make it fun! Children love playing with food so give them that chance by making shapes with their food.

Another fun thing we have done is the recipe below. This comes out very good and children love being able to make their own characters. And they don't even realize they are making a healthy snack at the same time! There is no set recipe for this but the basic instructions are below. Let each child personalize their own cup as they would like.


Vanilla Pudding

Decorations: cereal, grapes, blueberries, orange slices, strawberries, kiwifruit, gumdrops, food coloring,


Spoon Vanilla Pudding into a serving bowl, and use decorations to create fun faces.

This only takes about 5 minutes to make and serves four people. I like to get the big container of vanilla pudding and use it for several mornings or for snacks too.

So, how do you have fun in the kitchen with your children? Leave a comment below and let me know. I love to hear from my readers! And please make sure to run over to the Clorox Recipes for Fun site and enter your own recipe!
