Make Memories Last with #KinderSmiles

I can't believe the summer vacation is rapidly coming to an end. We have been quite busy finishing up lots of things in our summer list - yes we have a list :) after all it is such a short time and I didn't want to regret missing different adventures. We are still trying to catch up some of the adventures on our list to do like going camping during the upcoming weekend.

Kinder Surprise is a Special Treat for Road Trips

Usually during the summer holidays when school is out, my family and I go on road trips or fly to see other countries. When we go on these long road trips, I take a few things to surprise my children. These surprises come in handy to cheer them up during their unhappy moments. Special treats like Kinder Surprise usually put my children in a better mood.

Decorating Eggs and Celebrating the Joy of Spring with Kinder

Everyone in my family loves spring! Although, we don't celebrate Easter we enjoy decorating eggs, and each year I like to explore different techniques. My children join me during this craft/ science activity. This year, we explored the Ukrainian method of painting eggs called pysanky. This Eastern European art of egg decorating is similar to batik, and the method requires the use of wax and dye.

Girls will be girls and Boys will be boys with these Kinder Surprise Toys

Kinder® Surprise® limited edition Barbie™ and Hot Wheels™ packages have thrilled both my son and daughter.  They were super excited to see a package of Kinder eggs made especially for each of them.
Cool stamp inside Kinder® Surprise® limited edition Barbie™  

My daughter couldn't be happier that the eggs were wrapped in pink, as she thought it was marked just for her so she can tell it apart from the ones her brother has :)  It is funny how girls get attached to pink and all things Barbie and princess related.  
After seeing this Barbie signature stamp, even I wanted to open up all the eggs that were wrapped in pink just to see the Barbie toys.  I have asked permission from my daughter to use this cool stamp :)
My son was super excited that the Hot Wheels pack of Kinder® Surprise® contains his favourite super cute racing cars.  He has already opened a few but hasn't got what he is hoping for yet!  If I hadn't put the rule about one egg per day ;) I am sure he would have opened all the eggs in one day.

It is funny how girls will be girls and boys will be boys.  From a young age when I watch my children play I see how they have automatically learned to differentiate boys and girls toys.  Even their approach of handling and playing with the toys are different and interesting.
Due to the awaiting surprise and cool toys inside Kinder, I have noticed my children are willing to share the chocolate with us just so they can open as many Kinder chocolates as possible.  I think they love Kinder more for the purpose of having a collection of Kinder toys, which I think will make good memories as they grow up :)

To launch these cool Kinder® Surprise® Barbie™ and Hot Wheels™packs, Kinder® Canada will be giving away 40 prize packs in their Facebook starting on January 10th for 4 weeks.
Simply become a fan of Kinder® Canada and follow the instructions on their Facebook.

Kinder® A Joy To Share

Kinder®’s "A Joy To Share" program supports the Children's Miracle Network who helps save and improve lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals since 1983.
Check their Facebook page to see how many families this program as helped.  Every time we share the video stories of the families Kinder will donate $1 up to $5000 to the Children's Miracle Network.

Although we give and share throughout the year, I find as the holiday season approaches we give and share more...
  • We share gifts within our family and friends
  • Giveaway things that we no longer use such as clothes, appliances and other goods that are in good condition to Goodwill and other charities
  • Donate food to those in need through food banks in our community
  • We collect and contribute non-perishable items to our children's school fundraisers for the holiday season, this makes our children happy and feel good to see their gifts being sent to those in need
  • Help organizations and NGOs when they are doing fundraisers such as collecting pennies to build wells in developing countries
  • Buying gifts that will help people in developing countries such as through World Vision
Just in time for the holidays Kinder® has dressed up their eggs and has packed the kinder eggs in a tree shape box, a train with 6 kinder eggs and giant kinder egg.  These eggs have the new 2013 collection of Kinder® toys, which my children like as the toys are cute and creative.
They also have packages of mini eggs that has a delicious milky hazelnut centre.  This package of kinder mini eggs are not nut free. 
Kinder® Canada will be giving away 7500 coupons for their Facebook community from November 26th for 10 weekdays so you can taste their new Kinder® Mini eggs for free.  They will give out 750 coupons each day at 12 pm ET.

Beaded bracelets and Kinder® Surprise®

I am excited to be a #Kindermom and happy to be part of a loved treat. Kinder® Surprise® has been well known for over 30 years. They are relaunching in Canada with over 70 new toys for the 2012 collection. The toys are going to be bigger, better, and more playful. The chocolate will remain to be made the same way, in peanut and gluten free facility with high quality cocoa, real sugar and visible milky lining.
Children grow up fast and so do we :) so taking the time from our busy lives and playing with them is quite important. As a mom, I believe trying to find time and playing with our children is very important. Doing something we love with children is the best thing. We will remember these fun moments as beautiful memories.
My children love to do crafts and painting with me. I also bake and cook with them. Whenever I get a chance, I ask them to help me mix something, measure, knead or roll. They love this and I sometimes have them sticking around the kitchen the whole time waiting for me to ask for their help. When I am busy, the children play with their dad. They enjoy a ball game or help around the backyard to pick up leaves, water the plants with him or play with sand.
I love that Kinder® thinks of families and the importance of quality time and about making memories. It is a perfect way to spend time together to share the chocolate and build the little toy together. The toys are wonderful for children over 3 years. Like with everything when small children are around supervision is important. The packaging of Kinder® Surprise® with the chocolate and a toy makes it easy to choose for a treat or a gift, we all know chocolate and toys put a smile on every child and adult.
Here is a simple activity to do with children. All you need is pipe cleaners and beads that fit through easily. Beading these bracelets will help with fine motor skills, counting, patterning and recognizing colours.
I like the idea of having it as a temporary bracelet, so the children can try out different patterns. These bracelets can also be made into a jewellery by using a glue gun, tape or securing the ends of the pipe cleaners and wrapping a decorative cloth around it.
