Sharing More Smiles with Kinder Canada #KinderMom

Over the last two years I've had many opportunities to share my love of Kinder Surprise with you all, along with lots of information on new toys, charitable partnerships and more from the fine folks at Kinder Canada. I'm also been very lucky to have been able to share these delicious chocolate treats and toys with family and friends throughout my time as Kinder Ambassador. And now I get to keep doing these things for another year!

I'm proud to announce that I will be continuing my relationship with Kinder Canada for the third year of the #KinderMom program. You can expect more news and updates from Kinder with a post here at least every other month. We may even have some giveaways to share as the year progresses, so keep an eye out!

Meanwhile, we are continuing to enjoy the Kinder chocolate and having fun putting together the little toys. This guy is our latest discovery. Aside from being just adorable, his head bears a paint brush, and his feet two palettes of paint!  The little charmer comes with two pictures to paint and instructions for making darker and lighter shades of pigment. Definitely good play value here. Boo has asked to bring him to school tomorrow for his art projects.

We haven't found any yet, but I know the newest toys from Kinder will be a huge hit. Starting September 5, Kinder Surprise eggs containing Transformers and Disney Fairies toys began appearing in stores! There are 8 Transformers and 10 Disney Fairies to collect in specially marked Kinder Surprise. I'll be looking for these for my Transformers fan; they'll be sure to bring a smile to his face.

How cute are those fairies? I have a nice collection of the Disney Princesses from earlier this year, and hope to add Fairies soon. Moms need a little pick-me-up now and then too. Tink would surely make me smile, and I'd give her a place of honour on my desk.

This morning I sent Boo off to school with a special treat in his lunch box. Monday mornings are never fun, and after a busy weekend he was pooped. So I tucked in a Kinder Surprise egg for him to find at lunchtime. It's great that these treats are safe for nut-free schools, so you can confidently sneak one in for a midday smile for your little one. They also make for great treats for classmates on your child's birthday or for any occasion when parents at your school send in goodies. Chocolate and a toy all in one - what could be better?

I know it's an odd lunch, but he eats very little because his medication destroys his appetite.
I give him options to pick at and then he eats when he gets home.
I like to add a little note or a picture as well on the whiteboard.
How do you share smiles with your kids? What are some ideas to help make the transition to fall and school a little more fun?
