A Chance to Win $1,000 From Sweethearts Conversation Hearts

Friday, January 17th, 2014

One candy that’s stood the test of time is Sweethearts Conversation Hearts. First made in 1902, the candies known for cute messages have become the bestselling non-chocolate treat of Valentine’s Day. I’d like to think that’s because Sweethearts really let you say how you feel. Sure, chocolate and presents are nice, but nothing is more direct than seeing the words “Be Mine” or “Kiss Me” tacked on to your heart-shaped candy.

Now, Sweethearts’ maker The New England Confectionary Company (NECCO) is taking personal endearment an extra step. The company recently launched Sweethearts Color Your Own packaging geared toward encouraging kids’ creativity. Black and white matte boxes make for the perfect canvas to draw a special design with crayons or markers. Kids will love customizing a box for family, classmates, or even a special valentine.

After your little artist has had fun coloring, help him enter NECCO’s Color Your Own contest celebrating the candy’s new look. From now until March 1, kids ages 5-12 can submit their one-of-a-kind Sweethearts box online by uploading a picture. There are three separate age categories, and in each a grand prize of a $1,000 savings bond. Plus, your munchkin may just get the chance to see her personal saying appear on Sweethearts’ candy next Valentine’s Day season in 2015.

For more info on prizes and rules, be sure to visit NECCO’s contest page. In the meantime, watch one of our Valentine’s Day craft videos with your child for a little inspiration!

Be A Hero for Teeth in Need

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

If your child’s losing her baby teeth, chances are the Tooth Fairy has paid a recent visit (or five!) to your house. But don’t assume that little ones’ dental hygiene doesn’t matter just because baby teeth are temporary. Actually, cavities in young kids are a serious medical concern. Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease, and it can set kids up for a mouth full of problems in the future. (For the gory details—and how to save your child’s smile—check out “The Fight Against Cavities” in our February issue.) Practice good oral health habits with your kid, and then help other smiles in need by entering Tom’s of Maine’s “Be a Tooth Fairy Hero” sweepstakes. Have your child draw a picture of the Tooth Fairy, and then submit the drawing by March 15th for a chance to win Tom’s toothpaste for your child’s entire school, and a $10,000 donation on your behalf to a needy dental clinic in your state. For more information, visit TomsOfMaine.com/ToothFairy.
