When Crowdtap offered me a chance to host a Madagascar 3 party I jumped on it. For its part, Crowdtap sent me a digital party package which contained: Marty’s Zebra Cake Recipe, tic-tac-toe boards, connect the numbers, face painting ideas and paper animal chain cutouts. I didn’t use everything it sent me, but I did use some of the items and had a good time.
I have older kids, so the worksheet ideas didn’t really mesh. Instead I invited a few friends and their kids to join us at the park for cake and bottled water. The water was decorated with Madagascar characters. I played Madagascar music on my Mp3 player so the kids could dance and taped animal cutouts along the picnic table’s edge for decoration.
The kids attempted juggling and laughed as they listened to my Afro Circus ringtone. They also played Spikeball. It was not a huge get together, but I’d like to think my guests had a good time mingling. Next time I’d like to be able to have a pre-movie party followed by a trip to the movie theater.
It was recently brought to my attention that I failed to update my bad Lorax experience at the Mishawaka, Ind., site. I’m sorry, because the district manager more than made up for the not so great time my family had there. He also did so in a speedy manner, more than I can say for myself in updating y’all on the whole deal.
The district manager contacted me and commiserated with the disappointment my daughter felt. He let the store know that IHOP invested money in promotions and it was only a good investment if they used the promotional material. Then he mailed me five seeded bookmarks and a certificate for an adult and child’s meal at IHOP. My daughter was delighted with the response and I was satisfied that the company not only addressed my dissatisfaction, but a possible across the board issue.
It took months for my local stores to begin carrying International Delight’s iced coffee. By the time I found it all of the coupons I’d received for $2 or free coffee had expired, but I wanted to try it bad enough that I bought it. It cost less than $4 for what I think is about a half-gallon container of coffee. I bought the vanilla flavored coffee. It was smooth and quite tasty. I don’t like bitter coffee and International Delight did not give me bitter coffee.
I recently discovered VocalPoint‘s offer of a cutesy Mother’s Day e-coupon card. It’s not a high value card, but 75 cents off of a drink which can be served to several people isn’t a bad offer. So basically, this whole post is to tell you go try something new. If you don’t want to make your own coffee or spend $5 at Starbucks, pop over to your grocer’s dairy section and purchase a container of pre-made iced coffee. And be smart; save a little more money by printing a coupon to take with your.
Let’s face it: the economy still sucks. It probably won’t be much better by Christmas, either. Which is why I think it’s important to begin planning ahead.
Consider the families who will struggle to clothe their kids in winter coats and act. How? Well, right now JcPenney has toddler coats on sale for $5. If you choose to have it sent to a store near you, you can avoid paying shipping fees. So for a $20 + tax investment, you can donate four, quality coats.
Whether you buy a coat for your growing child or purchase one for a coat drive, Christmas present or a neighbor, it’s a simple and inexpensive way to give back to the community. What are ya doing? Go do good now!
