Enter Hershey’s Kisses Share Sweet Moments of Family Fun Promotion

I won the “Coolest Mom of the Year” award a few weeks ago when I took them down to New York City for a night of playing games and eating Hershey®’s Kisses® Chocolates. My daughters and I played a game of Twister with a new “twist” – whenever someone landed on red, they got a Hershey®’s Kisses® Chocolate. We also got to check out one of Hasbro’s newest Family Game Night game, RATUKI, which is quickly becoming a family favorite.

The event was to kick off the Hershey’s Kisses Share Sweet Moments of Family Fun instant-win promotion. Hershey’s has partnered with Hasbro and is giving families the chance to win thousands of prizes including a $10,000 family-room makeover. Now through June 15, 2011, consumers can visit to enter the online sweepstakes where they are eligible to instantly win prizes. Upon entry, participants receive a “CONGRATULATIONS! You are a WINNER” or “SORRY! You have not won a prize” message. Each time an entrant plays, they will receive one entry into the Grand Prize drawing with one lucky player receiving a variety of Hasbro games and $10,000, which may be used towards a family-room makeover. In addition, 360 winners will receive the first prize of a Hasbro Family Game Night game, 360 second prize winners will receive a Hasbro Family Game Night card game, and 1,440 third prize winners will receive a coupon good for one free 12 oz. bag of Hershey’s Kisses Brand Milk Chocolates.

My Family and I “Kicked-Off” The Holiday Season At The Radio City Christmas Spectacular by Alison Rhodes, The Safety Mom

Last week the kids and I (along with Grandma!) went into New York City to take part in the Christmas in August event at Radio City Music Hall, home to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and the amazing Rockettes! Not only was this the “kick-off” for the 2010 holiday season for the show but it also was the beginning of the “Kick Across America” campaign which is supporting the Garden of Dreams Foundation.

This was the first trip for my kids to Radio City Music Hall and to have it decked out for Christmas made it even more special … and the “decorate your own cupcake” compliments of Magnolia Bakery was a big hit as well!

I told my daughter Kelsey that she could be my “assistant blogger” for this assignment so she took some notes during our backstage tour and an “interview” with one of the Rockettes. Here were her facts:

The Christmas Spectacular started in 1933
They have live animals in the show!
The backdrops weigh 1,800 lbs
The Rockettes didn’t start at Radio City, they actually started in St. Louis
The Rockette I met has been dancing with the Rockettes for six years
She was very pretty and had big bracelets

I love seeing what Kelsey took away from the day. Hannah decided she now wants to be a Rockette for Halloween and the best part of the day for Spencer was the cupcakes!

After the tour of the Music Hall we went outside to watch the Rockettes kick it up with a very special guest – Santa Claus! Santa invited everyone to come out and kick as well but my kids wanted no part of that (I can’t believe they get stage fright with me as their mother!) They even had “snow” coming down from the rooftop which definitely put all of us in the holiday spirit.

I remember how special it was going into New York to see the Christmas Spectacular when I was a little girl. I can’t wait to share that with my kids this year.

And Radio City wants to help other kids experience this magical event as well. Once 1,000,000 “kicks” are reached, Radio City Music Hall will donate thousands of tickets through the Garden Of Dreams Foundation to kids who might otherwise not have an opportunity to see the Christmas Spectacular. You can help out by visiting and “kicking” on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or texting a kick.

Toyota’s Teen Driving Program

I remember when I first got my driver’s license  (oh so many years ago!)  I felt invincible.  Just like any other teenager, I felt completley in charge and believed I knew exactly what I was doing.  That is until the first time I drove on a wet, slippery road and spun across three lanes of traffic.  Unfortunately many teens overestimate their ability to handle situations that come up while driving.  That’s why I was so happy to learn about "Toyota Driving Expectations."  This is a four hour driving course for parent and teens to complete together.    Offered free of charge in cities across the country, the program goes beyond what is taught in typical driver training classes by putting teens behind the wheel to face challenging, real-world scenarios under the supervision of professional drivers.  It is also one of the only programs of its kind that hosts teens and their parents os they can learn how to drive more safely together.

This course goes way beyond traditional drivers-ed classes and helps teens practice how to best keep their eyes on the road, learn about how anti-lock braking systems work on both wet and dry roads and demonstrate how everyday distractions can have unexpected hazardous effects.   Parents and teens also drive a "distraction course" — as they drink water, change a CD and text.  At the end of the program, to reinforce what they learned, teens and parents develop a safe driving contract together to be put into practice when they return home.

The class is being held this weekend, 5/2 – 5/4, at Belmont Park Race Track in Elmont, NY.  You can register to attend and get more information by visiting

Have you taught your teen to drive or did you send them to driving school?  What sort of rules have you set up for your teen when it comes to driving?  I’d love to hear from you!
