Chewie Gum Campaign and Giveaway CLOSED; WINNER – Helen Wakeley

Chewie with sweets
Half term is upon us yet again and Chewits have launched a brand new bubble gum brand called Chewits Chewie Gum.
photo 1The gum comes in three exciting new flavours – Lemon, Strawberry&Banana and Tropical. Designed for kids aged 8-11 years for kids on the move and sharing this gum tastes delicious and provides a nice treat.
Now I don’t believe in filling kids with sweets but I don’t think the odd treat now and then harms anyone and always make sure my kids brush teeth after sweets.
We were sent two large boxes of chewie gum. Both boxes containing twelve individual packs of gum, four of each flavour per box.

The chewie gum is being enjoyed by Ryan who also shares with hs friends, he enjoys the fruity flavours with Strawberry & Banana being favourite.
Chewits recently surveyed parents and asked for cost saving tips through half term they developed this cool info-graphic providing a few half term tips and info.

    If the weathers nice we like to do lots of things in the garden – picnic, tennis, football, paddling pool, looking for certain flowers/bugs etc. All free !
    Go for walks, to the park/beach
    Using vouchers/clubcard days out can be had cheap.

    If you go to the cinema at half-term make sure that you take your own food and drink in with you, it saves a fortune. I make my own popcorn to take and put it in individual tubs!

    Always take plenty of snacks and drinks with you, especially if you have young children. Buying food and drink when you are out costs the earth. Also take a bag with a few toys and books, my Best tip though is to take “blow bubbles”….everyone loves bubbles.

    my money saving tip is if the weather is nice go to local fields, woods or large park and go on a nature trail, noting and drawing all the creatures, birds and flowers that you come across. costs nothing and can last as long or a short as you like.

    Followed you and everything! Great comp! Really excited about this; the kids would love it! A great money saving tip for the half term, would be if you are planning on going on holiday, always ask for deals. Have saved over 50% in the past just for asking for a last minute deal on hotels/holiday homes. Also, there are loads of great free museums in London, really involves and excites the kids πŸ™‚

  19. May 25, 2013 / 19:55

    I don’t think you have to pay lots of money to go into places. Sometimes simple things like going swimming can be great fun.

  20. Jamielee Norris
    May 25, 2013 / 20:39

    All done – my tip would be to make the most of your surroundings – go for a walk and have a picnic, feed the ducks, maybe go for a bus ride which is alot cheaper than a huge day out at a childrens play area, go for a nature walk and pick out things you can use to make a picture at home πŸ™‚

  21. Helen Wakeley
    May 25, 2013 / 20:46

    You definitly dont have to spend alot of money for the little ones to enjoy themselves πŸ™‚ staying in and making things is a brilliant thing to do πŸ™‚ – making a den with sheets etc you cant go wrong!! xx

    The weather will (hopefully) be better so try and do free things. My daughter had the most fun at Easter when we sent her and a few friends out into the woods with a list of things to find (i.e. a white feather, a red stone, etc.)

    Take kids out to find different size/shape leaves. Then when your home they can use crayons to print them and make pictures etc

  27. May 26, 2013 / 01:55

    If you’re going anywhere that requires an entry fee, check their website and Facebook and Twitter pages, plus money saving websites for discount vouchers and if that fails try ebay where people often sell tickets at a massive discount. If appropriate bring your own food and drink.

  28. TRACEY REDFERN-JONES
    May 26, 2013 / 06:45

    Use 2 for 1 vouchers, check websites for discounts and book with your friends as a group, take packed lunches instead of buying food once out, also car share and split the cost of petrol/car park entrances with friends

  29. May 26, 2013 / 08:54

    Make use of your own garden for picnicsand games so you dont have to be in an over crowded park! (all requirements done @thewaywewantto)

    Go for picnic’s in your local park or forest, the kids will love to chooseing and making the food and entry is free. Once you have eaten you can play games or use the equipment.

    my tip: today was a rainy miserable day outside but we had lot of fun inside. We baked cookies and whilst cooling, made a den in the sitting room, we had a jam butty picnic (homemade bread – cheated and made in the bread machine), fruit and yoghurt and of course the cookies which where a bribe to make sure that kids ate their lunch. Then the kid made a bed in the den and i read our book of the week – George’s marvelous medicine. Money that i would have spent has gone in the pot for a day out when the weather i better.

    My best money saving tip would be just get the kids outside for some fresh air and let their imaginations fly! If its not raining, then they have no excuse to be bundled up inside! Walks, creative play, sidewalk chalks, planting seeds, alsorts to do outside πŸ™‚ x

    My best half-term money saving tip – have fun at home, make play dough, teach the kids photography, have a games afternoon, pretend you’re in a restaurant for dinner – get the kids to write a menu and plan and cook with you.

    Look for an independent cinema near yours, our local one has films for Β£1 in the morning at 10am (they show last years big family films) . We get to see some good ones on the big screen for very little money.

    Have a voucher drawer which you put any vouchers you see in newspapers etc for days out in. Then when it comes to the holidays have a look through. You don’t have to use them as places like theme parks can still be expensive even with vouchers but they’re there if you want them.

  71. Debbie

    Stay in and have fun in the Garden my kids love entertaining games when everyone is involved. Also family time with a good board game or film goes down a treat. Nothing better than spending time together πŸ™‚

  73. June 2, 2013 / 14:40

    Poundland all the way – can find a lot of brand named cereals etc for a serious reduction

  74. June 2, 2013 / 15:59

    I love to bake and also do arts & crafts with empty egg boxes and other items πŸ™‚ x

  75. June 2, 2013 / 16:20

    Take turns with friends to have play dates at each others houses , or meet up at parks. Kids are happiest in the company of other kids & a play date costs virtually nothing if you all contribute towards a picnic (indoor or outdoor!)

    best tip i can offer is buy a family and friends travel card you get 1/3 off train fares when you travel with a child, daily mail gives away in may a free 2 month pass and you can renew it for less than buying one (you get a discount via daily mail) last year it was Β£12 to buy as apposed to Β£24 This year sadly its Β£20 but its normally Β£30 z

    Buy cheap craft items or cake making kits to do with the children from Poundstretcher. It’s much cheaper to do fun things like this with the children rather than going on expensive days out.

    Best thing I used to do with my niece and nephew was save old Christmas cards and birthday cards then get them to cut out the various characters, flowers etc and make pictures with them. It kept them quiet for hours and cost nothing bar a tube of glue and some felt tips. I also save up bits of ribbon to se as well. They always loved that past time.
