Kids movie date: Minions {Plus a Fandango giveaway!}

Happy Monday!
Sounds weird, doesn’t it?
I’ve actually been looking forward to this Monday because the kids and I have a special “mom & me” date planned. We’ve kind of already hit our summer slump and everyone is getting bored and irritated with each other, so we needed to do something different. Today we are going to see Minions! You know, the little yellow guys from Despicable Me– my kids love those movies. Now the Minions are back with their very own movie, and the people are General Mills were kind enough to send my kids and I this fun little Minions movie care package. Guess what? I also have one to share with someone, which means I have a giveaway for you!

General Mills is bringing Minions to your favorite cereals! Hidden inside each box, you will find one of six select Minions Buddies about to hit the big screen. You can collect all six Minion buddies in specially marked boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios, Banana Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reese’s Puffs, Trix and Golden Grahams, and more. The specially marked boxes of Big G cereals hit store shelves this month, for a limited time only. General Mills has additionally released specially marked packing of participating Betty Crocker fruit flavored snacks, including Fruit Roll-Ups, Fruit by the Foot and Gushers. The six little Minion buddies are so cute and can be used as key chains, danglers, action figures, and more. My kids love the ones they got and can’t wait to collect the rest of them.





The highly-anticipated Minions movie just opened up this weekend on July 10th, and one lucky Lulu & Sweet Pea reader is going to win a $25 Fandango gift card so you can see Minions too! In addition to the gift card, you’ll also get a box of a participating General Mills cereal, a box of a participating Betty Crocker fruit flavored snack, an exclusive Minions Buddy.

This little Minions movie care package was the perfect pick-me-up for summer! My kids cannot wait to go to the movie tonight! I’ll make sure to report back with how many fits of hysterical laughter they have.

*Update 7/14/15- My two oldest kids (ages 10 & 7) went with me last night and they loved it! It was cute, silly, and even made me giggle a few times. It’s a super family-friendly movie that kids of all ages and even parents can enjoy (I saw a lot of adults there without children, too!) We had a great time and finished off our entire bucket of popcorn.
