BK Crown Kids Meals Review

I had to bring Princess A with me when I was trying to have my glasses fixed (they made the prescription wrong).  After being at my appointment for almost two hours, I decided to take her out to lunch.  MyBlogSpark had sent me a gift card to try out the new BK Crown program so we went to Burger King.  She ordered the kids meal which has the new BK Crown program.  Of course Princess A was first interested in the toy that came with her meal.  Next she had to try on the crown.  I remember wearing a cardboard BK Crown when I was a kid two.  As we were eating our lunch, we started reading the box the kids meal comes in.  There were lots of different activities on the box which Princess A explored when we got home.  On the box is also a code.  If you input that code at BKCrown.com your child can help BK decide which charity BKC will fund, the charities choices are: the Wildlife Conservation Society, National Parks Conservation Association, DonorsChoose.org and Have It Your Way™ Foundation.  Personally we voted for DonorsChoose.org, I have donated to them in the past as they help fund classroom project. 
As you can see in the picture above, Princess A really enjoyed her meal.  She raved about it so much that I had to take her and her little sister back a few days later.

Giveaway: Crayola Technology (24 Hour Entry)

I have always been a huge fan of Crayola.  I remember the excitement of the huge, new box of 64 Crayola crayons with a built in sharpener.  Now they have the circle thing with over 100 crayons, and yes my girls have that too.  Of course now kids have more to than crayons and paper to express their creativity.  My girls love drawing on our iPad.  We have a few apps where they can use their fingers to draw or I should say finger paint but without the mess.  Crayola has discovered a way to improve that:  the Crayola iMarker.  You now have a 'marker' to draw on your iPad using the ColorStudio HD app.  You can pick if you want a crayon, marker, colored pencil or even paint.  The first time we tried it was a little hard to use and then I figured out that within the app you have to choose iMarker or finger.  Once I switched it to iMarker drawing was so easy and fun.  My girls love making lots of different drawing.  You can also save the drawings in the app to enjoy over and over. 
We were also sent three different  Crayola Story Studio sets: Disney Princess, Cars 2 and Spiderman.  The Crayola Story Studio lets you make a coloring book with your child in it.  Of course my girls couldn't wait to try out the Disney Princess Crayola Story Studio.  Each one comes with two binding clips so I could make two, one for each of my princesses.

How would one of you like to win the same Crayola Technology package I was sent?
