Pringles and a Great Trip Idea!

Hi Neighbors!

As you know from previous posts, my family LOVES Pringles!  It is the number one snack that my 14 year old daughter asks for.  And with a family of 8, everyone has their favorite.  Some like the Original, others Sour Cream and Onion, and others the Barbecue.  They are one of the snacks we have on game night.

Game Night!  Board games that is.
Now Pringles has a new idea for using the can afterwards.  You can visit their Facebook page and download and print activities for the children to use on a trip.  Print them off, roll them up, and put them in the Pringles can. Now, add something for them to write or draw with, pop on the lid, and you are ready to go.  My personal preference is colored pencils.  They don't melt, and don't leave stains like ink pens or markers.  They can be used for writing or coloring!  You could throw in a small pencil sharpener. 

Sour Cream and Onion.

Original for her!
Not only could you take these on road trips, but they are perfect for Dr. appointments, shopping trips, or even going out to eat.  How many times have your children been bored waiting for the adults to finish talking.  They don't cost much, and they are easy to replace if they get damaged.  I don't know how often I have purchased little bags or bins for carrying activities and then had them ruined or broken.  With a Pringles can, you just throw it away and use your next can...as soon as you eat all the Pringles of course!

Be sure to visit their Facebook page and print off some pages for your next trip.  Coloring, Word Find, Tic Tac Toe, Riddles, etc.  There is even a section for parents with a check list for Before Leaving, After Leaving and SOS.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive some Pringles for review purposes.  All quotes are taken from the email and website.  All thoughts and opinions are entirely mine.
