The McDonald's Kiddie Crew Workshop + Giveaway!

After the Holy Week, my little man embarked on another summer activity - the McDonald's Kiddie Crew Workshop. He took part in this workshop last year, and he even won gift certificates (plus bragging rights, lol) for being the 'Cutest Kiddie Crew of the Week'. But because the little man wanted to become a 'Kiddie Crew' again and seeing how much he enjoyed the experience last year, I decided - on a whim - to sign him up for the workshop again.
Kiddie Crew year 2 for my little man!
And so on the morning of April 21st, the little man and I trooped to McDonald's Rizal Avenue, together with his other crew mates (and their parents) for Batch 4 of the Kiddie Crew Workshop. As I've mentioned before, this workshop is done in batches, with each batch going on-board for five days, 2 hours per day. Registration fee costs Php 595, which includes the Kiddie Crew uniform (shirt, bag, cap, chef's hat, apron, ID with lace), workshop materials, plus meals for the kids.
Clockwise from L-R: Chef's hat, shirt, cap, bag, ID with lace, apron.
Now I bet you didn't know that McDonald's has been hosting this summer program for 21 years now. Yes, the first Kiddie Crew Workshop was actually held way back in 1991!

More Kiddie Crew adventures, plus a giveaway after the jump! :)

Like last year, the Kiddie Crew members did fun activities like singing, dancing, and painting.
Dancing to the tune of 'Do the Ronald'.
Singing their theme song 'Make it Happen'.
Painting his apron.
And with the addition of the chef's hat in this year's kit, the kids were given the chance to jazz up their hats and decorate them the way they want!
Putting stickers on his chef's hat.
The Kiddie Crew members also went 'on-floor', where they got to mingle with the crew and assist them by doing simple tasks such as greeting the customers, putting ice on the glasses, placing trays on the counter, and my son's favorite job - handing out drive-thru orders.
On-floor training!
Eager beavers!
Having fun at the drive-thru window. :)
Thank you, come again! :)
Oh, and the kids made their own cheeseburger, too.
Chef Yue in action.
Showing off the finished product.
Kiss the cook! :)
Now this workshop was not just fun and games. These activities actually taught the kids the importance of hard work, discipline, teamwork, and the joy of sharing.
For any amount donated to the Bahay Bulilit program, kids will receive a badge like the one Yue has.
On the fifth and final day of the workshop, a simple graduation ceremony was held. The participants received their Kiddie Crew badges, had a meet and greet session with Hamburglar, and  even had the chance to showcase their talents by performing in front of the customers! The kids danced 'Do the Ronald' together with Hamburglar, and sang the Kiddie Crew theme song, 'Make it Happen'.
Dancing with Hamby.
Singing in chorus.
Group picture! :)
The kids played some fun games too, and they all got to bring home some really cool prizes.
Balloons for everyone!
Having fun!
Loving the prize he got!
The little man and his crew mates will all meet again on the 31st for the Grand Graduation Day. Together with the other Kiddie Crew graduates of the McDonald's Rizal Avenue branch, they will all receive their Kiddie Crew certificates, and convene for an afternoon of fun and games for the whole family.

Now here's the best part. I'm giving away four Kiddie Crew kits to four lucky readers, and the chance for their kids (or nieces, nephews, and siblings) to experience the Kiddie Crew workshop as well.

My most favorite childhood experience is honestly, egg hunting. I know we are past the Holy week but I was really looking forward to an egg hunt but unfortunately, there is none for adults. It made me realize that it is one of my favorite childhood experience and i missed it.

My favorite summer childhood experience as far as I could remember is going to my grandfather and grandmother's house, where I will stay there for the whole month, being their favorite "APO" I am able to do what I wanted. I can get without any fear that my mother would scold me. My Lola even let me help me cook and I am able to hold spatula. I really feel so free with them. I love my LOLO and LOLA so much and I am missing them so much.

I remember that every summer we see to it to visit my grandma in ILOCOS. We always stay there for a week and make sure that my family will have fun.

I remember we went to a river to swim.. I was really happy making fun of the water when I saw a carabao nearby that is taking a dip too. Hahaha....

I had the best summer experience when we visited our mom's hometown,a very remote province but full of fun activities we got their. My Lolo prepared three days before we arrive his "bangon" that's what they called it a bamboo made cage for shrimps and crablets,we had our lunch beside the river, of course from his freshly harvest shrimps,crablets and some st.peter's fish which my mom grilled and can't forget the freshly picked ripe mangoes and bananas for dessert, yummy. How I wish I can gave such simple but unforgettable experience to my children and grandchildren, minus their gadgets of course.

The summer vacation before I became a fifth grader was the best. I also attended the McDonald's Kiddie Crew Workshop. All of our activities helped me boost my confidence and I enjoyed a lot with my new found friends. I was awarded Best in Lobby. ;)

My favorite summer childhood experience is watching Chinese Opera. There is a Chinese Temple near our house and every May, there would hire a performing troop during the "feast day". It was very entertaining to watch the artist in ancient costumes with intricate headpieces singing to the accompaniment of drums, flutes, cymbals and other musical instruments.
