Cooking with kids is the best. Cooking with kids for kids is even better.

This fall, thousands of Canadian families got together to make some Kellogg’sΒ Rice Krispies treats, and turn them into toys for theΒ #TreatsForToys campaign to support The Salvation Army. Each treat toy made and submitted toΒ treatsfortoys.ca before December 21, 2016, became aΒ $20* donation to The Salvation Army for the purchase of an actual toy for a child in need.

My boys and I tried our hand at a variety of different #treatsfortoys, but none of them came close to the magic created below. But that didn’t matter. We spent time together laughing, and getting creative.

While the charity aspect of #TreatsForToys has been completed for this year, you can still have festive fun with Kellogg’s Rice Krispies over the holidays making toy shaped treats!

Here are my picks for the 10 best #TreatsForToys Rice Krispies Creations from this year:

My DIY edible forest is on the blog this morning! I had a little too much fun making this Rice Krispies winter scene for the @gastropost / @ricekrispies_ca Treats for Toys campaign, in which Kellogg’s is donating funds to the Salvation Army to provide real toys for children in need. More information on how you can get involved is in the link in profile as well. πŸŽ„πŸ˜Šβ€οΈ #gastropost #treatsfortoys #sweetestsecret #edibleart #christmas #howiholiday #diy #bakersofinstagram #thisisfall #eeeeeats #f52grams #madetocreate #christmastree #gloobyfood #forkyeah #healthyfoodshare #foodstagram #thebakefeed #feedfeed #saveurmag #tastingtable #foodandwine #inmykitchen #bonappetitmag #forkfeed #torontoigers #cookandtell #marthabakes #foodwinewomen #todayfood @ghirardelli

In the end, it didn’t matter how awesome or how awful the the #TreatsForToys were, it just mattered that you spent an afternoon in the kitchen with your kids imagining, playing, laughing, and creating. Parents spending time with their kids to help other kids, is always a win.

Thanks to the other blog partners on this campaign for helping to spread the #TreatsForToys word, check out the posts by Natalie Bell from Winnipeg, Tina Barkley in Vancouver, Chris Read in Ottawa, and Jenn McNeely in Toronto.
