Summer Time Family Fun in the Sun #KinderMom

We are halfway through the summer (hard to believe right?!) and our family has been taking full advantage of this warm weather from swimming, to movies, to the Pan Am Games – Ontario has so much to offer for family fun and Kinder treats have been with us each time.

Summer Time Fun Activities!

But sometimes, we just need to unwind and have some downtime to help us focus as a family. There are so many fun (and free) things you can do in your own community. Here are my top places and activities to do in the summer for free:

  • Splash Pads: these provide hours of endless fun for children and help to cool them down on hot days.
  • Family Movie Nights: we like to set up blankets and pillows in front of the television (our ‘campout’) and put on an oldie but goodie movie to enjoy at night. Throw some popcorn and Kinder eggs and it is a win win!
  • Hiking: while the weather has been far too hot to actively be hiking the trails, find a hiking trail in your community and get out there. Supply your children with a mission to complete (finding a certain amount of birds,etc..) and have fun. You can combine exercise and education in this one.
  • Picnics at the park: I am a huge fan of picnics. You don’t even have to go far just pack up a small bag of food and get outdoors. You can even eat in the front yard and the kids will have so much fun with the change-up of routine.
  • The library: there are so many activities provided at the library over the summer from movie days, to bingo and animal days. Take advantage of these free activities as your children will learn, have fun and meet new friends.
  • Fishing: while I am not a huge fan of removing the fish or attaching a worm (seriously gross), my kids can spend hours at the lake fishing!

Summer Time Fun Activities

Where ever you go this summer, make sure to pack lots of water (a must) and a special little Kinder egg treat for your kids!

Create Your Own Minion Friends with Kinder Canada

Create a League of Minions with Kinder Canada!

Bee Do! Bee Do! Bee Do!

The famous minions are back and this time you can find them in Kinder chocolates!! Po ka?? (English translation from the Banana Language: What??).

Yes, you heard that right – in your favourite Kinder chocolates. Throughout this month, you can find these adorable little minions in store, in specially marked packages.

Build Your Own Minion Gang with Kinder Canada

I was on the hunt for these packages for the last three weeks and I finally scored some at Walmart this past weekend. My boys and I decided to have a little bit of fun with our new minions by creating a league of minions out of all the spare Kinder capsules we keep in the home (they are the perfect storage for change!).

Create a League of Minions with Kinder Canada!

For this craft you will need:

  • Kinder capsules
  • blue and purple paint
  • black permanent marker
  • blue circular stickers

Paint the bottom half of the capsules blue and leave upside down to dry. The ‘evil’ minions you will have to paint half of the capsule purple.

Once they are dry, use the permanent marker to add in the eyes, goggles and hair.

Add the stickers to the centre of their pants. We chose one of the minions to hold a heart and another to wear a flower in his hair (hence the sad face!).

And voila! A league of your own personal minions!

Our son set them up with his Minion toys in the living room and created his own ‘battle’ scenes. We had so much fun playing around with them.

Who Is Egg-cited for Easter – This Kinder Mom Is! #KinderSmiles #KinderMom

Kinder Canada

The sun is finally shining and the snow has melted (in my part of Canada because I know my friends in the East are still having quite a bit of snow falling!) and Spring has finally come. We have been busy preparing our hearts and home for Easter and our children are excited for all the fun that Easter brings – time with family and all of the Easter egg hunts!

Kinder Canada Easter

I have been busy preparing the children’s baskets this week, preparing crafts for the boys and working on our Lenten promises. While it is usually a busy time in our family it is also the most rewarding.

Kinder eggs have always been a family tradition in our home. Our children look forward to finding them in their Easter baskets on Easter morning – not to mention how much their Mom loves those mini eggs!!

Kinder Canada Easter Collection

This year Kinder Canada is celebrating Easter in a big way on Facebook by unwrapping your very own Kinder egg online!

So how does this work you may ask?

Between March 16 and March 31st head over to the Kinder Canada Facebook page and open the new Kinder Easter tab at the top of the page. Tap the image with your mouse to unwrap the egg. The Kinder egg will reveal either an instant prize or a message to try again. Every time you unwrap a Kinder egg you are automatically entered in to a grand prize draw. Awesome, right? Make sure you get those entries in soon because this unique giveaway will end soon.

Our Christmas Traditions with Kinder Surprise #KinderMom #giveaway

Wow – just like that Halloween is over and it has actually started snowing. Yes – snowing! We had little snowflakes coming down over the weekend. It is now time to start looking forward to the holiday season – yay!

The holiday season is a fantastic time for families to focus on quality family time and the love between each of us. We are able to shower our families with love and show them how much they mean to us. Homemade gifts are always a huge hit under the tree for us.

One of my favourite family traditions is our stockings! I loved waking up to find my stocking by my  bedroom door full of special goodies picked out just for me – including chocolate goodies (yup – my chocolate love goes way back!). Now every year we include delicious chocolate Kinder eggs in the boy’s stockings. I love the Kinder eggs that come in Christmas tree shapes – they fit perfectly in the stockings.

Our family tradition of Advent calendars will continue this year with the Kinder Advent Calendars. Not familiar with Advent calendars? This is one tradition that you will love. The Advent calendars are used to help countdown to Christmas Eve and behind each day’s door is a chocolate surprise. Our boys have always loved their calendars and the bonus is all month long the boys get to work on recognizing numbers.

The Giveaway!

This month we want to spoil you with a Kinder Surprise Pack. One Working Mommy Journal fan will win a prize pack that includes:

One KINDER® Advent Calendar
One KINDER® Hollow Santa with SURPRISE®
One KINDER® SURPRISE® 100g Christmas egg

Sounds awesome, right?! So hurry up and enter now for a chance to win! Don’t forget – you can enter as many Kinder Surprise giveaways during the month of November from the Kinder Family but you can only win once 🙂 Good luck!
