I remember as a kid being such a big treat to get to go to McDonald’s. I want my girls to enjoy treats and moments just like I did as a kid so today we finally ventured into the newly remodeled McDonald’s in our neighborhood. The sleek new restaurant had a few hidden surprises like this interactive table that was large enough to actually fit our large family!
We were all more than thrilled to see a large table for coloring, touch games along the wall, touch screen games at stations and light up interactive tables which all replaced our old play place. I found there are also activities during the week that would be really engaging and fun for my kiddos.
During the entire month of November McDonald’s wants to encourage children everywhere to celebrate reading by including a book in every Happy Meal. It’s such an easy way to encourage the love of books and these handheld books are the right size for reading in the car on the go. In our house books are much better than toys any day so my girls were thrilled to each get their own mini books.
The fold out pages and a bite taken out of the corner, these books have real details and are stories your kiddos really will enjoy. These adorable books teach kiddos about nutrition in a fun and engaging way within each mini book and my girls enjoyed each story. McDonald’s will also be handing out millions of books this month – talk about celebrating reading!!
The best ways to get kiddos reading is to instill a real joy and fun when it comes to learning something new. It makes them better engaged which means they are really making learning fun. I want to teach my children that reading can be fun and very rewarding!
How do you encourage reading with your kiddos?
