Fuel Kids' Fun While Beating Boredom With Lunchables {Hasbro, Lunchables & $50 Fandango Gift Card Prize Pack Giveaway}

Lunchables logo
While summer is coming to an end, that doesn't mean that it will put a stop to all of the dreaded I'm booooorrred calls from children everywhere. Aside from having extra activities planned or events on the calendar, what's a mom to do?

Thanks to the Lunchables Lunch Combinations team, the answer is in the form of their Never Be Bored Again challenge that the whole family can be involved in. The brand has now partnered with actress and celebrity mom, Tori Spelling, to launch a national campaign that will benefit the minds, bodies and imaginations of kids everywhere!

Never Be Bored Again

It's all about fueling kid fun while beating boredom and efforts to make a difference are already underway. On August 28th, Lunchables hosted a complete sport court make-over at the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank with Spelling and installed new basketball hoops, foursquare grids, playground equipment and more. What an amazing way to help out those kids and all that the Boys & Girls Club does for them!

But that's not all. That event was just the kickoff to the announcement that Lunchables is also donating up to $100,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America and their sport and recreation programs... and you can be a part! Simply capture photos of boredom-busting activities and share them by visiting the "Never Be Bored Again" application at Facebook.com/Lunchables.

summer fun

Every photo that is uploaded from today through October 15, 2012, will generate a $1 donation to Boys & Girls Clubs across America, up to $100,000, to help amp up the fun.

As an added bonus, after uploading your photo, you will receive a $1-off coupon for new Lunchables with Smoothie, while supplies last. It's a win-win for everyone!

Lunchables with Smoothie

When it comes to boredom busting, what photographs come to your mind first? Your kids playing dress up? Helping cook? Or craft? Having a backyard barbeque with friends? A day at the beach to beat the heat? Even just an afternoon spent making silly faces in the mirror counts as an activity that would bring on the laughter and fun!

While we've experienced a long list of summer activities that could fall into this category, one of our most recent was thanks to the extremely fun pack of goodies that Lunchables sent over.

Lunchables prize pack

We haven't had a bored moment since all this entertainment arrived! The girls both have had fun writing and drawing all sorts of top secret information into their Lunchables notebook...

...as well as carrying around their important possessions in their Lunchables messenger bag...

...and we've already picked up some tasty Lunchables at the grocery store with our coupons so that they're on hand for upcoming lunches at school and preschool. Next we just have to decide on what movie to go see with our Fandango gift card!

Lunchables

But what easier way to beat boredom than to pull out a great game? Thanks to Hasbro's Connect 4 Launchers, Scrabble Electronic Catch Phrase and Twister, we've been able to reach for these updated classics and enjoy spending time together whenever and wherever.

Who can be down about the rain or the too-hot temperatures outside when you're inside doing this?

Twister

No matter if you have a plethora of tricks up your sleeve to keep boredom at bay or you're always on the lookout for an activity that will provide endless entertainment, be sure to upload your photo to the "Never Be Bored Again" app to help support Boys & Girls Clubs across America.

Then keep the fun going with your kids by heading over to Lunchables.com/FUN to play the instant win game and win one of over one million prizes! Grand prizes include a tricked-out tree house, your child's very own Sport Court or the Ultimate Game Room — go enter for your chance to win!

My son loves Lunchables and gets at least one a week for lunch at daycare. The prize pack looks awesome!

degood said...

My kids love playing with craft supplies so a new pack of pipe cleaners will keep them busy for quite a while as they string beads on them for necklaces, bend them in to animals and flowers and finally cut them into a bunch of little pieces and play with them and their magnets or glue the pieced onto paper.

we invested in family memberships which allowed return trips to various museums. The previous house was half an hour from Liberty Science Center. The Center switched out the major expositions and there were regular special activities for the kids. And a real bonus - it was all educational aimed at various age levels, and they loved it. We even got free tickets to bring friends along.
