As I posted last week! I have been selected as a Kinder Mom, so over the next few months you will see the odd post with Kinder Canada prompted topics. This is one of them.
I'm excited to announce that Kinder Canada has relaunched with a new collection of Kinder toys for 2012. This includes a giraffe that is 22 cm high, some interesting stamp pads, and some toys that squirt water.
Yesterday, we had an unintentional Kinder party at the house. The children, Jessi and our new friend Tyler had a dozen eggs to go through (and some extra toys) together. Jessi managed to get the 22 cm giraffe. It was one of the more difficult toys to assemble. In the time that each of us had assembled 2 or 3 toys, she had only assembled the one. We've named him Freddy and she is going to keep him in her cubicle at work as a reminder to celebrate the smaller victories.
I think that attitude is fantastic, it isn't only important to celebrate the small victories with children, but adults we need to be reminded about how capable we are of the little things. It helps us feel more confident in ourselves. I think attitudes like this help us to live more gracefully.
We ended off our kinder fun by standing at the top of the hill flying some 'Wow Wings' and 'Firetubes' that came inside the kinder eggs. My youngest boy had fun combining a couple of the flyers into one super flyer. It doesn't fly as well considering it is much heavier but it was still very impressive. He was very proud of his creation and has since combined different styles and made a few different models.
It was really nice to do something spontaneous with the children. I love the freedom that is found in the moment and life unfortunately seems so planned out at times. I have been making an effort to try and be a little more spontaneous with the children. If they are being a bit trying sometimes a fun way to change things up a bit is to send the kids outside for a scavenger hunt to win a super special snack. I've sent them outside looking for things like feathers, shells, pine cones and even army men that are missing in action.
