Zebra Mix And Putumayo Kids Holiday Giveaway



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.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    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.

    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!

  3. Lori

    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!

  4. maria

    I love baking with my son and singing Xmas songs so those giveaways would be awsome! Our favourite tradition is to make a new christmas tree decoration every year.

  5. LeeAnn P.

    We drive around looking at light displays and then have Chinese food for dinner on Christmas Eve. the kids love it!

  6. Deb

    My favorite holiday tradition is to buy a new ornament for each kid every year, and to buy a new Christmas songs CD to listen while opening up presents.

  7. Shelly

    We are just starting traditions – she likes doing an Advent calendar and I want to introduce her to giving to other kids via donation programs

  8. Kristen Wallace

    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.

  9. Charlie

    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.

  10. Natasha Ng

    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!

  11. Carol

    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.

  12. Elizabeth

    My kids are little, so we don’t have any real traditions yet, but I do plan on having my son help me with the Santa cookies for the first time this year.

  13. Aline

    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.

  16. Tari Lawson

    I love making Gingerbread houses with my boys. They each do a small traditional house and I do a replica of our home :).

  17. Brandon Ralston

    This is my favorite holiday tradition. We sit around the fireplace and sing along to Christmas CDs. Enter me please. Thanks.

  18. marge mckoen

    our favorite christmas tradition id driving around at night looking at xmas decorations while listening to xmas music and snacking on a big bag of hot buttered popcorn

  19. Denise B.

    Our tradition is the celebration of the religious season of Christmas–Advent, St. Nicholas Day, Christmas Day, and the 12 Days of Christmas that start the day after Christmas.

  20. Monique Rizzo

    My fave tradition with my daughter is making christmas sugar cookies. We get messy,covered in flour, and it is a huge mess…and I wouldnt trade it for anything. Even if my kitchen is splashed with greens,blue,yellow and reds from frosting. Thanks for the chance.

  21. Jeanine

    My favorite holiday tradition with my grandchildren is to decorate a gingerbread house and read the book It was The Night Before Christmas.

  22. Kimberly L

    So many different things. I absolutely love baking with them, and decorating the house/and tree

  23. Elana

    We all gather at my brother’s house for a nice Christmas lunch then we hang out all day and watch movies in his home theater.

  24. brooke

    Each year they get to pick out or make a new ornament for the tree… Then when they move out (many years from now) I am going to give each of them their collection of ornaments.. OH and cooking cream cheese braids every year is also a tradition

    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.

  27. Phoebe

    We spend Christmas Eve with our “extended” family of friends. It is a nice, festive evening and all the kids realize how really good friends are good “family”.

  28. Leslie S.

    I have each of the 4 kids make a new ornament each year.It is fun for them to look back and see what they made many years ago.Thanks!

  29. Jennifer T.

    Our favorite Christmas tradition with our daughter is decorating the tree. We love watching her place the ornaments on the tree and enjoying the lights.

  30. Alisha

    My favorite holiday tradition is getting the kids matching pjs and putting them on while we drive around to look at Christmas lights, drinking hot cocoa! Fun, fun!

  31. Susan

    My kids are both grown now, but I am continueing the Santa letter with my 2 grandchildren. For the 4 weeks before Christmas a letter from Santa or one of his elves “appears” somewhere in the house or comes in the mail.
