Daily life is filled with pressures, tasks and deadlines. MALTESERS® candy wants you to look on the light side of life, take a much needed break and #HaveABall. How? Try one of the MALTESERS® Challenges throughout the year! I’m joining in the fun with The Chopstick Challenge.
What you’ll need:
MALTESERS®, pair of chopsticks, bowl, and a plate.
How it works:
Fill a bowl with MALTESERS® candy, then use your chopsticks to pick them up one by one and move them to your empty plate. Race against your friends and family to see how many MALTESERS® you can move from the bowl to the plate in 30 seconds. My results were less-than-stellar, apparently I need to brush up on my chopstick skills!
Early this year I was approached by Fisher-Price® to help spread the word on the importance of unstructured play. A recent survey from Fisher-Price®, found that nearly all Canadian parents surveyed (90 per cent) agree overscheduling children’s activities can be overwhelming to them as well as to their children (86 per cent). Along those lines, the majority of parents (80 per cent) believe childhood today is more complicated than it should be. This concept really spoke to me as a parent and even had me reflecting on my own childhood. I was blessed to have parents that found a really great balance between free time to play and structured community based activities in my life. Looking back, this balance really had a positive impact on my ability to grow my identity, deal with stress and build self-confidence.
By giving children toys that have been designed to encourage physical, social, emotional, language, cognitive skills and imagination, a lot of what parents seek is right there on the floor.I’m so excited to partner with Fisher-Price® to encourage families to Play More! The truth is, we need to give kids time to just be kids, am I right?
Some of you may have noticed from my IG stories that I hosted a good old fashion Play Day at my home with local moms to encourage this playful concept. Below is my event recap, including my decor! But don’t feel pressured if you were to host your own Play Day with your mommy friends to go to the extremes I did. In the end, it’s all about toys, snacks, drinks, and unstructured play time! It’s that easy, share your play moments on social media with #FPPlayDay to play along.
To help you get Play Day ready I’m giving away a Fisher-Price® toy prize pack valued at approximately $375 CDN. For an entry, simply subscribe to my blog by email on the sidebar, and leave a comment telling me your fav Fisher-Price® toy!
