monsters university

When Monsters University hit the theaters, I was among the first to see it. I was eager to find out how Mike and Sully became the legendary scare team that we saw in Monsters, Inc. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and recommended it to my friends. In addition, I extracted a few important life lessons to share with my children (read my post: 7 Life Lessons from Monsters University that I Want My Kids to Learn).

To promote Monsters University, Kellogg’s has launched a “Scare Scholar” Facebook app, that allows users (13+) to play games, win prizes, challenge friends, and answer Twitter trivia questions. This fun social gaming platform gives dads and kids a fun, new way to engage at the breakfast table (for more family breakfast ideas, read my post: How I Connect with My Kids at the Breakfast Table).

Players have the chance to win multiple instant-win prizes each day (Disney music downloads, movie tickets, gift cards, etc). In addition, one $10,000 scholarship will be awarded as the grand prize in August (the promotion runs through 8/15/13).
