Summertime is a great opportunity for fun outdoor family activities. Swimming, hiking, road trips, visits to the museums, libraries, and zoos can create enjoyable family memories. The zoo is a perfect fun summer activity and learning experience that the entire family can share together. No trip to the zoo would be complete without seeing the penguins and to help bring a little bit of the zoo home are Nickelodeon’s The Penguins of Madagascar.
Kristie Miller, a mother of quadruplets, explained the appeal of The Penguins of Madagascar for her four boys, “My boys love The Penguins of Madagascar! They love animals, especially penguins. The penguins struck a common cord with my boys, because they are very similar to them. Although the penguins look alike on the outside, they each have different personalities and characteristics. Even at their young age that commonality stood out to my quadruplets.“
General Mills has teamed up with Nickelodeon’s The Penguins of Madagascar and MyBlogSpark to offer The Penguins of Madagascar giveaway. Inside specially marked boxes of General Mills cereals, are one of five characters from The Penguins of Madagascar; Skipper, Rico, Kowalski, Private or King Julien.
Each participating cereal contains one character launcher with mission details outlined on the back of the box including:
Dive In, Soldier: Set an empty plastic cereal bowl on the table and try to pop your launcher into it. Wear a helmet or you’ll be squid bait.
Longest Propulsion Launcher: Challenge your troops to see who can launch their character the furthest. Go long or go back to the zoo.
Target Practice: Create a landing zone with a spoon and try to strategically drop your character into the sweet spot. Hit the target or go back to the drawing board.
Clear the Wall: Do you have enough projectile pop to push your launcher over the top of the box? Proceed launchin’ troops, earn those wings! Each character is unique and has their own specific role so children can collect the five character launchers to complete all missions.
