See How One Mom Entertains Her Kids in the Back of a @Kia (Plus, Enter This Giveaway for a $50 Shell Gas Card)! #kiasocialclub

I mentioned recently that I am a member of the Kia Social Club. Well, I left out one small benefit of my membership: I get to offer some great prizes for you! So, I was thrilled when I was given the opportunity this week to give a $50 Shell Gas Card to one of my readers!

But first I’d love to share another video with you from blogger Daphne Brogdon. You may recall from my last Kia post that I shared ways in which I try to keep my kids calm in the car after seeing Daphne’s video about her kids fighting in the back seat. This time, she shares a super-fun idea for entertaining the kids in the car -- without leaving the driveway! Check it out:


Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Kia Motors

Isn’t that great?! My boys think that idea is SO cool, so we’ll have to try it out on one of those days when the kids pronounce, “We’re bored!”

I love these videos that I’ve been sharing with you courtesy of Kia and SocialChorus. And now it’s time to introduce this gift for one of you … a $50 Shell Gas Card. (Hopefully, you’ll be using it to fuel up your Kia!)

  11. It's so true about having to have some down time with your kids. I love the idea of camping out in the car. Looks like fun, with no distractions, like the phone ringing. Just some special time spent and focused on your kids.

  12. Interesting idea. I didn't know the Kia had that much room to fit an adult and 2 children comfortably in the back. It's a different way to entertain kids and I'm sure they enjoyed the novelty of it all. There are so many possibilities. All you need is imagination. I like it. Thanks for thinking "outside the box".
