Can you believe August is here? Let’s kick off the last month before fall 2017 right with a back to school giveaway! Enter at the bottom of this post to win $50 of school supplies!
The Quick Details:
We are giving away $50 worth of school supplies (exact items pictured) . If your child is a fan of the Minions, they will particularly love the Minions backpack and a few other items from the movie that we found. There are a number of ways to enter (U.S. Residents only) – complete them via the giveaway widget below. Entries will close at 11:59 PM EST on August 15, 2017. We will contact the winner (chosen automagically by the giveaway widget) on August 16th. Terms and conditions apply – see widget below for details.
The Longer Version:
This year has flown by, hasn’t it? It seems like just a few days ago that we were sitting down at the Thanksgiving dinner table for turkey, stuffing and football. We have had a pretty busy spring and summer – We can’t believe it is August 1st already. September will be here in the blink of an eye!
We bought our first Halloween candy of the year on Sunday and we’re excited about this fall. We’re excited about all of the things that we normally do – fall festivals and pumpkin patches and a Halloween party, of course. But this is also the fifth year that we’ve been running Funtober. We expect the website will be more popular this year than it ever has before.
In past years, we’ve had a pretty hard and fast rule that we start Funtober activities on September 1st. But we decided this year that we were willing to make a few exceptions for the people that truly love fall so that we can share our excitement with you. One of those formerly fall (and now summer) activities was Back to School shopping.
We went to Target on Sunday and shopped the back to school section. We were definitely early – since there were no crowds – but we were not the only people buying school supplies. We set a $50 budget for the giveaway and we ended up breaking it – by four cents.
Here are the 25 (I think that count is right) items that we are giving away:
1 Accessory Innovations child’s minion backpack and yellow stocking hat.
1 small “minion life” bag with handles
1 canister of 80 ct. Lysol wipes
1 pack of (2) pink erasers
1 Minion pencil case
1 wooden ruler
1 box of 160 Kleenex
1 pack of 24 Crayola crayons
1 pack of yellow post-it notes
4 composition notebooks
1 box 24 ct #2 pencils
2 packs (100 ct each) ruled index cards
1 box crayola colored pencils (12 ct)
1 blunt tip 5″safety scissors from Fiskar’s
1 pack (of 4) Sharpie highlighters
1 roll/dispenser of scotch tape
1 pack of construction paper (96 sheets, multi-color)
1 pack wide-ruled filler paper (100 sheets)
1 wide ruled single subject “I Didn’t Do It” Minions notebook
1 pack (5) Elmer’s Glue Sticks
1 Pencil Sharpener
We had some pretty fierce debates concerning the appropriate items to include. We hope you enjoy our back-to-school giveaway for 2017. Enter below:
We’ll have another giveway when this one is over – So check back soon!
