McDonald's Kiddie Crew 2012

     It was a usual Saturday afternoon in our household. When we were done with our lunch, my kids watched their favorite cartoon on television. I glanced at their faces and realized that they looked bored. The other night, my younger son counted how many more days he has to wait before school starts on our wall calendar. I felt that I have to find a way to make this summer vacation a totally different experience for my children.

     The same night we went to McDonald's Katipunan Branch and I saw the store's announcement for McDonald's Kiddie Crew 2012. It is McDonald's annual summer activity for kids. McDonald's care so much for children and they show it through the  McDonald's Kiddie Crew 2012 program. Wherein they teach children the importance of team work, friendship and cleanliness. At an early age kids will learn how to value hard work while having fun. Registration is until April 30, 2012 in participating McDonald's stores. McDonald's Kiddie Crew 2012 is a 5-day workshop where kids will learn how to greet customers the McDonald's way, on-floor training, art work and serving the customers in the drive-thru and front counter stations. For only P550, kids will experience a meaningful vacation. Registration fee includes free bag, shirt, ID with lace and cap plus free snacks.

     At first, my hubby was hesitant of the idea of enrolling our kids. He was worried that our boys won't participate well but I convinced him eventually to give it a try. And again, it only proves that mothers know best...because our kids enjoyed the workshop so much. Our boys went through the April 20-27, 2012 schedule and trained (or I better say played) for 2 hours per day.

Hi Ronald McDonald!

Good job, Allen!
So sweet...he smiled and said "Thank you for coming, please come again."
     Don't worry parents, before the workshop there will be an orientation. During the orientation, there will be a short tour inside the store, distribution of uniforms and of course a detailed discussion on everything our little kids will do during the workshop.

Orientation on April 21, 2012, Sunday

Distribution of shirt, cap and bag
     On the last day of the workshop is a mini graduation. Kids receive their certificates, eat their favorite McDonald's meal, sing, dance, play and receive special awards.

My sons' certificates:

Ian's special awards:
L-R Best Runner and Best Drive-thru Assembler
Allen's special awards:
L-R Best in Front Counter and Best Drive-thru Assembler

         Kids also sang the Make it Happen song and danced the Ronald McDonald dance. They ate a McChicken meal...
     That's not all! Remember, the last day of the workshop is called the Kiddie Crews' MINI graduation right? That's because McDonald's Kiddie Crew 2012 will be having a GRAND graduation. Yes, a grand graduation! All McDonald's Kiddie Crews will join in one big event where there will be more games, food, songs and dance numbers and... loads of FUN. Tickets for the grand graduation will be given at the McDonald's branch where your kid had his workshop.We're waiting for our tickets. Thank you McDonald's for the happiness you continuously bring to my children.
