Go Retro with General Mills, Hasbro, and Target!
For a limited time you can relive your childhood by heading to your local Target® store, as General Mills cereals have brought back their “Retro” themed packaging. To help celebrate the event, General Mills has teamed up with Hasbro®, offering a $5 coupon on Clue® Vintage, Scrabble® Vintage, Parcheesi® Vintage or Risk® Vintage board games at Target!
Take a step back in time with your favorite retro childhood cereal at breakfast. Introduce your kids to the Hasbro Vintage Collection games using the $5 Target gift card on the back of these special cereal boxes: Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Lucky Charms®, Honey Nut Cheerios®, Cheerios®, and Cocoa Puffs®. Then, reinvent game night! Your favorite childhood games like Scrabble® and Parcheesei® are still tons of fun, and your kids will enjoy trying to solve the mystery in Clue® and save the world with Risk®.
Living retro, being old fashioned, or getting back-to-basics… Whatever you call it, it’s refreshing and fun for the whole family! Remember the good old days with these special “Retro” themed packages of your favorite General Mills cereals available at Target this spring while supplies last.
Memories…that’s what’s new! Can you believe the Holidays are here already? Yes, it’s time to rollup your sleeves and get ready for a season of family, fun, and new memories. Baking, open houses, and family visits, it’s important to keep your old traditions. But you can also start some new ones this year.
Host a Chex® Party Mix-change: It’s a traditional cookie swap with a new twist. Host a party and ask friends to make enough of their favorite Chex® Party Mix to exchange. Click here for recipes.
Old school fun with a twist: When you are done in the kitchen, retire to the living room to play classic party games. Change up typical charades by having a “guilty-pleasure” reality shows as the topics. A guaranteed good time!
Bake, Bake, Bake, and Donate: Gather friends and family to bake up some fabulous Betty Crocker® Holiday cookies and cupcakes. Then donate them to a local senior community, a women’s shelter, or to a food pantry. You’ll have fun working together to make someone else’s Holiday Season a little brighter.
Remember grabbing your pillowcase, throwing on a homemade costume, smearing make-up on your face, and trick-or-treating around the neighborhood? You can have as much fun as you remember—with your kids!
Here are a few ideas for Spooky Fun and Games this month!
Watch a classic Halloween movie with the whole family such as “Bednobs and Broomsticks”, “Casper”, “Ghostbusters”, or “Monsters Inc.”.
Play a game of Pumpkin Roll! Mark off a start and finish line. Set 2 pumpkins on their sides at the starting line, and have 2 racers line up behind them. At “Go,” each pair of challengers uses brooms to roll the pumpkins past the finish line.
Arrange for a Skeleton Scavenger Hunt! Purchase or draw a large paper skeleton and cut apart/separate the bones. At your Halloween party, have the kids find the bones of your skeleton hidden around the house or yard. Then in “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” fashion, have the kids reassemble the skeleton on a wall (or hanging butcher paper)—blindfolded!
Have a Haunted Time!!!
