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.

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.

Painting eggs and Joy to share Kinder Canada

We painted eggs using two different techniques. If the egg has been out for more than 2 hours don't consume.

To paint the eggs you will need...

food colouring
rubber band
kitchen paper towel

The tie dye method

Damp a paper towel with water and put about a 1 tbsp of vinegar all over the paper towel. Spread different colour food colouring in a pattern. Place the egg and fold the paper towel to wrap the egg. Pour or sprinkle some water over it. Place a rubber band around it and leave it until the paper towel is dry. Remove the paper towel and see the colourful egg.

Rubber band method

Place a few rubber bands around the egg. Place the egg in 1 tbsp vinegar mixed with 1/2 cup water and 1/2 tsp food colouring for a few hours until it becomes the colour that is preferred.

Kinder values the time we spend with our children throughout the year. Kinder Canada has partnered with Children's Miracle Network to bring joy to families in need. It is important to remember, reflect and be thankful for our blessings and help others in need.

Many families have benefited from Children's Miracle Network, check the Kinder Facebook page to read their stories. It is important for all of us to help our communities in some way i.e. donating or volunteering our time and to remind ourselves and teach our children to be thankful, this will make us humble.

Follow Kinder on twitter @KinderCanada or @KinderCanadaFR, they are giving away 100 Kinder eggs a day for 10 days from March 19th to 30th.
