To my delight, I have once again been chosen as a Kinder Mom for 2012 and I am so excited about it! What I love about being a Kinder Mom is that I get the chance to share my fondness for playtime and my fondness for Kinder eggs with all my wonderful readers. And with March break almost here, it’s a great time to plan some extra playtime for your family!
Here in small-town Saskatchewan, March break is actually in February and runs through the week of Family Day, which means that Friday was the official start of “March break” for our household. I’m so excited to enjoy a week of fun with my boys and to get ready for the adventure, we spent the day stocking up on craft supplies so that we could enjoy plenty of creative playtime together over the next few days.
We started the activities today by decorating some wooden lion masks with markers and glitter. Tomorrow we’ll be trying our hand at melted crayon artwork. And on Sunday, we’re going to make our own Gak, that rubbery and slimy substance that no kid can resist. What I love about craft projects is that not only are they a chance for kids to express some creativity and originality, they are also a chance to bond together as a family.
If crafts aren’t your thing, though, there are lots of other fun options to make March break special. Why not head outdoors for a family hike or check out a local museum? Even cooking a favourite meal can help make spring break feel special.
When family time is done, there’s no better way to finish the fun than with a Kinder Surprise. My boys are such big fans of the chocolate treat with a toy inside. In fact, the whole family tends to agree that a Kinder Surprise is the perfect end to any activity! And because Kinder Canada knows how important family togetherness is, they are giving away $500 towards a family “staycation” on the Kinder Canada Facebook page! Just use the Kinder Moments application to frame one of your special memories and you’ll be automatically entered to win. And don’t forget to check out the amazing 2012 toy collection too; the clever new toys are guaranteed to add more fun to your day!
So this spring break, whether you’re going on a trip or enjoying all the comforts of home, make sure that you take the opportunity to bond with your kids and make some new memories. And don’t forget to showcase your favourite moments with the help of the Kinder Moments application for your chance to win $500 for your own ultimate “staycation” experience! With Kinder Canada and a little creativity, your family will be sure to have a March break that they’ll remember for years.
