Cheerios Heroes: Try A Different Flavor For Free with Publix BoGo #CheeriosFunFlavors #Giveaway #Coupon

I don't know about you guys, but Cheerios are a staple in my house. I love Honey Nut Cheerios and Peanut Butter Cheerios, but Kodabug will not anything but Milti-Grain Cheerios (she won't even eat other cereals.) She could eat them all day long and never get tired of them. In fact, I keep her snack bowl stocked with them for when we are out an about, when she visits her Nanny, or when I need to grab her a quick snack. Tbomb will pretty much eat any of them. I love that I can give my kids a quick and easy snack or breakfast that is also healthy. Cheerios are heroes to me!

(P.S. Be sure to read to the bottom for fun tips on a family movie night and a giveaway)

When I found out that Publix was offering a BOGO coupon on ReadyPlanSave, I knew I had to get in on that. I printed out some coupons and hopped on over to Publix to try some new #CheeriosFunFlavors. We decided on Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Frosted, and of course had to get Koda's favorite- multi-grain. I have a secret for you- if you head to Publix between August 13 and September 2, there are exclusive in-store savings as well.

We decided to have a special snack and movie night with our new fun Cheerios. This is something we do a lot. We will empty out the snack/ lunch cabinet, throw out the old stuff, and have snack night with the stuff that has already been opened. This usually consists of marshmallows, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and other random lunch and snack fixings we've picked up. I thought this would be pretty fun to do with the Cheerios. I was definitely right.

We made Cheerios trail mix to watch All Dogs Go To Heaven (Tbomb is still struggling with the loss of one of our dogs and this movie seems to help). I think this was the most fun the kids and I have had in a while. I was super duper easy to do too!

Grab some paper lunch sacks, all of your goodies, some big bowls, and you have all you need. I poured the options into the bowls so the kids could help themselves easier. We had all four #CheeriosFunFlavors that I picked up, marshmallows, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and dried apples. Tbomb had the added option of peanuts and various candies (Koda is still too small for that). We did it like an assembly line and the kids had so much fun making their own snack. (Koda had help, of course). We then piled up in the living room with blankets and pillows for a family movie night.
