Melissa and Doug Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered!
CSN Stores has a website full of online toys. They were so generous and sent us the Melissa and Doug Slice and Bake Cookie Set and they are also going to send one to one of my readers!


I'm in love with Melissa and Doug and I'm in love with this toy! All of the cookies velcro to the cookie sheet or velcro together so you can slice them. The frosting also velcros on to allow for you to customize your cookies. B has been playing with this set continuously since we got it out of the box. He's really into slicing them and serving them with the spatula. The oven mitt is a big hit too!

So here it is...My First Giveaway!Do you want to win a Melissa and Doug Slice and Bake Cookie Set?

Here's how to enter:
* Visit CSN's online toys and browse around a bit. Leave a comment telling me which toy is still on your wish list even after Christmas.

*Leave a comment and let me know what you'd like to see more of on The Activity Mom. (For example, what types of activities you'd like to see more of or which age group you'd like to see more activities for.)
*This Giveaway is open for USA only.
**I will select a winner using Random.org, so be sure you leave a separate comment for each entry!

The contest starts now and ENDS Wednesday, January 6th. The winner will be announced here, and emailed (your email MUST be in each comment/or enabled in blogger). The winner must reply to my email within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen.

  8. We think alike and so a lot of the activities you've done, we've also done - the button snake, nuts and bolts, homemade boardgames, and I have your pizza game idea in my spreadsheet to try to make at some point!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I have a long list of ideas to try from your blog, but the one we've actually done recently (and blogged about in a Tot School post) is the "nuts and bolts" activity. My little guy really enjoyed it! Thanks! (tarasine {at} gmail {dot com})

  12. I like the variety of ideas you share for babies and toddlers. If I had to choose one area I would like to see more of, it would be ideas for cooking with toddlers. (tarasine {at} gmail {dot com})

  13. Hi Activity Mom,
    As a preschool teacher I LOVE your blog so much! On the CSN toy site, I love the Magneatos, and the giant blocks. The pumpkin linkers are great too. I subscribe to your site via Bloglines, and love to see all the new things that you come up with. We made your jingle bell bracelets, and also did the button turkeys. Thanks so much, Karye (kluppen@stmatthewsschool.com)

  18. My daughter's big gift from my parents this year was a Kid Kraft kitchen. We'd still love LOTS of kitchen accessories (like this Melissa & Doug set, come to think of it!). One of our most-wanted items is the Kid Kraft "smoothie" set that comes with wooden fruit to cut up and put in a wooden blender! We have smoothies all the time here and she'd love to make some in her OWN kitchen.

    Thanks for this contest, Activity Mom!

  19. ...AND I have followed you via my Google Reader ever since I found you doing Muffin Tin Monday. :)

  20. Lots of your activities have wound up on our own Activities We Didn't Get To list! One I can think of that we've done recently was your Impromptu Car Game from a couple weeks ago - now we're always keeping my 3 yo entertained by calling out, "If you see a ____, say ____!" Thanks for that and all the other great ideas.

  21. I would love a toychest!

  22. I have you on google reader.

  23. My kids are a 7 yo boy and a 3 yo girl. What I really love are activities that can work well on two different levels. For example, when you posted the idea about poking holes with a toothpick as a way of tracing letters, I thought I could give my daughter a shape to try to trace (or maybe fill in) with holes and give my son a whole word written out or maybe a maze to poke his way through.

    So I guess what I'd like to see more of is multi-age activities, or just simple comments about how we can expand an activity for slightly older kids. Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  24. We have done a lot of your printable activities - the snowman, elf and reindeer. Also, I think you did the dice number game which we liked as well.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like activities that are easy to put together with things I have. Thanks for the fun ideas.

  26. I'd love to get my hands on one of those Flybar pogo sticks. I used to be pretty good on the pogo...back in the day. =)

  28. The most recent activity we did was the "S is for Santa" M&M game. My kids loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the activities you post. I think the only thing I'd ask for is activities geared for a little bit older children. My son is 4-1/2 and I'd like some things that are a little more challenging. I also have a 2-year-old, so most of the things you post are perfect for her. Thanks for all you do!

    ReplyDelete
  47. And, finally... I have a two year old, so I'm always looking for activities or crafts that are adaptable to very very young ones. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

  49. We just did the sticky half-marshmallow pictures and the letter poking with a toothpick during a playgroup, and they were complete hits!

    ReplyDelete
