Zebra Mix And Putumayo Kids Holiday Giveaway

Posted on | November 29, 2009 | 71 Comments



This giveaway is now closed.

Look at these: gift kits for your budding pasty chef (or chemist) from my friends at Zebra Mix. These kits are a great way to involve your child in your holiday baking bonanza or as stocking stuffers for post-holiday family fun.

I’ve said this before on this blog, I’m culinarily challenged. When BigB was in preschool, one of the other moms volunteered to bake cookies with the kids. When he was asked what type of cookies he made at home he replied – without flinching – “My mom buys our cookies” (my defender). But that was before I met Lisa and Brian and their excellent, educational Zebra Mix kid’s baking products. zebramix-cupcake-studio

Zebra Mix is the result of these creative parents realizing that baking is a touch point for math, science and reading and an opportunity to teach important life skills, critical thinking and exercise creativity. And on top of all thzebramix-flour-power-bakingat, your child gets to manage an entire project from start to finish! As a mom of two children who are four years apart in age, I can vouch that the Zebra Mix Safari Baking Mats easily engage both of my children at the same time – which is fairly remarkable. And the end result is a tasty dessert which the whole family can enjoy.

See below for full details on what each of these kits contains.

putumayo-family-christmasAll of that said, it’s no fun to be working in the kitchen to the sound of the clock ticking. So for this giveaway, I’m pairing up gift kits from Zebra Mix with tunes from Putumayo Kids.

The Putumayo Kids ‘A Family Christmas’ CD includes familiar favorites such as ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ and ‘Frosty The Snowman’, but all with a Putumyao twist which you and your children will enjoy. As the folks at Putumayo Kids say: “Few things evoke more holiday spirit than festive Christmas songs. On A Family Christmas, Putumayo offers a collection of yuletide favorites by a fascinating array of artists that every family is sure to enjoy while trimming the tree or sharing a holiday dinner.”

You can read more about the artists and music on this cd on the Putumayo Kids website.

I’ve got five Putumayo Kids CDs and five ZebraMix Gift Kits to give away bundled together for an afternoon of family fun in a gift set worth $45.

This giveaway is now closed.

Zebra Mix Gift Kits – The Details

The Zebra Mix Rainbow Drop Cookie Kit includes: all the organic and natural dry ingredients to stir up tasty treats; just add fresh eggs and butter. All products certified 70% organic by QAI. The kit is packed up in a fun, reusable tin lunch box.

With the Zebra Mix Flour Power Cookie Kit, your children will be able to create beautiful dragonfly & flower sugar cookies using our kid-sized rolling pin, cookie cutters and yellow and white icing. The kit includes organic sugar cookie & icing mix, sunshine yellow all-natural food coloring, yellow silicone coated yellow rolling pin, dragonfly and flower cookie cutters and Safari Baking Map.

My favorite is the Zebra Mix Cupcake Studio Kit. I need my boys to apply their considerable talents to creating masterpiece cupcakes using the frosting pen, swirl design cupcake papers and all-natural yellow food coloring and decorating dots. The kit includes organic cupcake & frosting mix, sunshine yellow all-natural nonpareils, yellow all-natural food coloring, reusable decorating bottle, designer cupcake papers and Safari Baking Map.

    We get together with extended family to eat tamales and enchiladas and all the kids get to open a few gifts. A tradition that has endured generations.

    How cute are those baking kits!

    I like celebrating St. Nicholas Day on December 6th with my kids. It is just fun and it feels like something special only we share. 😉

    Wow! Those kits look like so much fun!

    Our little girl is 2, so I think this year she’ll finally get excited about Christmas. However, I’m certain that her photo with Santa will look a lot like it did last year, featuring a red-faced, screaming toddler who’s reaching her arms out to Mommy!

    I have a budding chef who would love to try the Zebra Mix! My favorite Christmas tradition is going to pick our own Christmas tree. It is always an adventure and we always come home with quite the unique tree!

    My daughters are 2.5 and three weeks, so we haven’t started any Christmas traditions yet. However, this year I hope to start baking spritz cookies with my 2.5 yo. My three older brothers and I loved making these cookies when we were little, and I know my daughters will love it as well (my toddler already loves to “help” in the kitchen). When they are both older, I’d like to start a new family tradition of making a buche de noel on Christmas Eve. They are fun and tasty.

    This is our first Xmas with our son, so he gets to share the tradition of opening presents at Grandma’s house. All the cousins, aunts, and uncles open presents in order of youngest to oldest.

    We have the kids set a plate of cookies and glass of milk out for Santa to snack on when he comes that night. The first time we did this, our 3 year old set it near the front door rather than the chimney!

    We bake 100s, and I mean 100s of cookies. It is a tradition passed down from my grandma to my mom. We then plate and wrap most of them, and give as gifts to friends and family.

    My favorite holiday tradition is listening to Christmas carols with my kids the month before Christmas and putting together a gingerbread house. We also get one of those chocolate calenders from Trader Joes every year so you can open up a small box in the calender and get a treat every day in the month of December.

    My favorite tradition is going out to chop down our tree. I tease the kids every year that we are going to get an artificial. They are scream NO!!! Then we are off to search for the perfect tree. It is so fun because we spend so much time looking for the perfect tree that you would think we were going to have to keep the tree in our living room for years instead of weeks. Of course we always think it looks sort of on the small side until we get it into our living room and it’s too huge and hubby has to cut it down to fit. The memories being made are priceless.

    One of our traditions is each of my kids get a new ornament each Christmas. It will have something to do with their interests of activities for that year. For example an ice skater when my daughter was taking ice skating lessons, or a beautiful brass cello when she was playing in the orchestra, etc. They each have their own box of ornaments and other Christmas items they get such as snow globes, nutcrackers (my son) etc. So every Christmas they decorate “their” side of the Christmas tree with “their” ornaments so Santa will know where to leave their gifts. They love putting them on and remembering what they were for. And when they’re adults they can take the box with them. Thanks.
