My daughter and I received an invite to join the McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop in North Reclamation last April 15 and we happily accepted! We love McDonald’s so there was no way we would say no and I’m so glad that we went because she had  blast! I think all the kids who joined the workshop had fun especially that Ronald made a special appearance and did a dance number with them.

During the workshop, the kids were divided into groups and they took turns in decorating/folding happy meal boxes, served orders at the counter and made their own cheese burgers. Donned in their bright red uniforms and aprons, the kids looked so legit as McDonald’s crew members!

If you are looking for a fun and learning activity for your kids this summer, the McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop will be a great choice.

Here are 5 reasons why:

Organized play is a good avenue for kids to build their self worth and at the same time, it can also help children identify their own capabilities as they interact with others. The McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop does not just give kids hours of fun but since all activities are guided, they learn to listen to instructions and to follow rules. It can also present lots of opportunities for them to assist the smaller children, thereby developing the value of helping others.

2. Builds their Confidence

During the activities, the parents of the older kids will have to take a back-seat and simply observe the children as they complete their tasks on their own and this can greatly help them develop their confidence. I was surprised to see my kid interact with the customers and other adults in the venue. She normally takes time to warm up but I was so happy to see her getting out of her comfort zone!

3 .Helps Kids Build Social Skills

Before and during each activity, the kids are properly given sets of instructions which helps the children develop important social skills like how to observe proper-turn taking and how to cooperate with others.

4. Encourages Team Work

Some of the tasks are completed as a group where they need to work with other kids. This kind of activity can help enable them to switch from thinking only about their own work to communicating and interacting with others. This setting can help children get that sense of belongingness that is a vital human need.

5. Helps Kids Identify Their Strengths and Potentials

During the workshop, the kids, especially the older ones, are encouraged to do things on their own. Completing each task unassisted can help children realize what they are capable of doing which can help develop independence. My daughter was so proud that she was able to fix a cheeseburger on her own!
