Have You Played Today?

It’s the start of the Thanksgiving weekend and what better time to enjoy the company of family and friends. I have a lot to be thankful for, a lot. My girls are growing up to be strong willed, independent, bright children, and fast – too fast.

As you know, I was selected to be a KinderMOM. And as a KinderMOM I’ve been reminded how important it is to make time for play. So, yesterday we headed to my Mom’s house for a good ol’ turkey dinner. I was ‘instructed’, as Mom’s do, to not bring any food, only ourselves. Well, I couldn’t let that slide entirely!

The girls and I decided to make their favourite treat – crispie rice squares! … but with a “Kinder Twist”.

We heated or margarine, counted the marshmallows and heated them up. With the mixture still hot we crumbled 3(!!) whole Kinder Surprise Eggs! The girls loved breaking them into pieces!

We mixed in the rice crisps and popped the pan in the fridge. In the meantime, the girls played with their Kinder Toys!

How did our Crispy Rice Squares with a Kinder Twist taste?? I’ll give you a clue…

How do you make time for play? How do you turn something into a surprise?

Are you a fan of Kinder Canada on Facebook?? You should be! 10 lucky Facebook fans are going to receive a Kinder Gift Basket worth $200!! Will it be you?

I LOVE KINDER SURPRISE! Ok, was that enthusiastic enough? On a recent visit to Canada I was introduced to them & love them. Sadly, we don't have them here in the U.S.
