Sweet Giveaway: My Fruit Roll-Ups

Kids love Fruit Roll-Ups. Fruit Roll-Ups have been a lunchbox favorite over the years. If you don’t know what a Fruit Roll-Up, it is a thin sheet of fruit-flavored candy rolled in to a tube shape.

My friends at http://www.myfruitrollups.com/ have offered me a giveaway of a free order of customizable My Fruit Roll-Ups — 30 in all! Yes, that means that for your daughter’s birthday you could add a photograph off the birthday girl to the Fruit Roll-Up or a birthday message to the Fruit Roll-Up. You could add the Fruit Roll-Up to the goodie bag — what a wonderful way to commemorate an event in your family’s life!

My Fruit Roll-Ups gave me the opportunity to make a custom order of My Fruit Roll-Ups for my family. http://www.myfruitrollups.com/ was easy to open and use. The only problem I had was choosing the design! I thought about a Class of 2009 design since I have a 5th grader graduating from elementary school…then I thought about a pop star design for my oldest daughter…but what about my son may be he would like the birthday one. I could not choose. I was truly spoiled for choice. I finally chose the Way To Go image and added a photo of all 3 children. I may use this for Valentine’s Day — Sweet!

I’ll post a picture when I receive my order…I can’t wait!

    We went to Chuck E cheese for my daughter’s birthday, and she hid under the table because she was scared of Chuck E.

    We had a bowling psrty for my daughter. We hired a balloon clown.
    He was doing a good job, then he came over to my daughter and started making a crocodile jr broke the balloon twice. He never ended up making anything for my daughter. To this day she hates balloon making clowns!

    My daughter’s funniest birthday party was when we went to Chuck E. Cheese and the attendant had to crawl in after her because she wouldn’t come out of the balls area. Thanks for the giveaway!

    when the little girl I used to care for had her birthday party, she had a Dora pinata. The kids all pulled on the strings and it still didn’t break so the dads had to go after it with a stick.

    donna haha- my daughter yelled stranger danger stramger danger when chuckee touched her arm- she had just learned about strangers and were told to practice…

    Gosh, Any birthday party we’ve had for Gracie has some funny thing that has happened. Either I forget to make sure Gracie get’s to eat or don’t give her cake or whatever. I’m always messing up, but she never notices. She is going in a full run at whatever activity we are doing (swimming, bowling or bouncy house) I just end up going with the flow and it all ends up ok.

    For my daughter’s first birthday, we ordered a cake shaped like a circus tent. The top of the tent was a deep blue frosting. By the end of the party, everyone (adults included) had blue mouths and lips.

    at my son’s 2nd birthday he was about to stick a spoon into his cake to get some frosting and i told him not to do it — so he thought for a second, dropped the spoon and bit right into the side of the cake =)

    A friend threw a great birthday party for her son 1st birthday first child over the top. Train ride an at the time Lion King was in everything was Lion King and a college friend that was tall enough to wear costume came out after the birthday song all the kids at the party was freaking out and screaming running and hiding this not the reaction she was expecting because it took her such a long time to locate the suit and then find someone to fit it. For the adults it was hillarious for the children not so funny lions are much friendlier on TV. Thanks for the giveaway

    We gave our oldest daughter a “Hobo Party”, where we asked each child to dress up as a hobo. We had so much fun, and the goodie bags were on sticks, little bundles of goodies like ahobo would carry. cdziuba@aol.com

    My favorite was last summer my oldest 2 are 10 days apart birthday wise and were turning 7 and 6. We had an outside blow up slide and water slides and water balloons but the best part was bobbing for apples. The kids and the adults got into it and had a blast! Thank you!

    I was supervising my daughters birthday(There were about 20 kiddos running around) and I was called inside to help bring out the presents and birthday cake. When I came out, all the little kids were in their seperate parts of the yard and pooping. They were taking off their birthday hats and trying to securely fasten them to their feces… I had to quickly send them all inside to get washed up so they could eat the cake. It was quite the experience picking it all up…but nonetheless, the day ended up pretty good.

    For my son’s 4th bday we had a Double Dare party, but he didn’t want to invite any other kids – only his grandparents, aunts, and uncles! I did love watching my in-laws race across the yard wrapped head to toe in toilet paper!

    Not sure if it’s funny, but our most memorable bday was my son’s 7th. Our neighbors were doing construction and let us use their huge pile of dirt for the party. The boys were in heaven.

    At my little sister’s birthday party years ago, one of the kids shook up a 2-liter bottle of soda and then opened it, the drink squirted out with force and it soaked all of the guests! The kids laughed, but boy was that hard to clean up! 🙂

    We were visiting my in-laws in a distant state on my son’s birthday, and they decided to take him to Chuck E. Cheese. They didn’t realize how scared he was of crowds. (He’s autistic.) So he hid in the ball pit for most of the party. (At least he didn’t scream.)

    A dog went running thru the chuck-e-cheese at my daughters party and knocked over the cake!! Interesting party!

    My boss’s wife wrapped her grandsons birthday gift (unknowingly) with a pair of her bikini underwear lying on the bed. When the little boy opened the gift out popped grandmas bikini underwear, right in front of her whole family at his birthday party.

    I hope I win!!!

    My husband and I planned a surprise birthday party for my teenage daughter and she was so shocked that she ran down the street. We still laugh about it. She was fine and had a good sense of humor about the night.

    I’ve never had, or been to, a birthday party. And I’m nearly 50. Which is, in itself, funny, but not in an amusing way.

    Last birthday we did a Kung Fu Panda party for my three year old daughter. She was so excited and we had my brother in law dress up like him and greet the kids as they came into the gymnastics room for the party. THe problem was that all the kids were so scared of him, they wouldn’t come in until Kung Fu Panda was once again Uncle Jesse.

    When I turned seven my parents threw me a big party where they insisted I not only open my presents in front of everyone but show them to everyone after I opened them. I opened the gift from my grandparents which included several pairs of underwear. I quickly tried to hide them but my mom insisted that I show everyone my gift. I was mortified!

    Someone gave my husband a fake lotto scratch-off that said that he won one million dollars. The kids all asked for things and since it was his birthday party he agreed to all the requests. Everyone was in on it and asked for hugh gifts.

    When I turned 9 I had a small party. During the middle of the party there was a thunderstorm and soon after, the fire alarm rang. A telephone pole two streets away caught fire, and one girl sat on the porch to make sure that fire didn’t approach the house!
