I know summer is still far away but in case you are planning to enroll your kids to summer classes, this post might be helpful. For the second time, Aki joined Mcdonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop. I blogged about his first experience here. Aki was only 2.5 years old then.
The workshop runs for 5 days. If I remember correctly, as early as March, start holding workshops. Most branches have several classes a day. My tip is enroll your kid as soon as you see the announcement. I know a lot of interested parents who got disappointed because all the slots were filled. Actually, I was told that too, that they don’t have available slots. I asked for the manager and begged her. Hehe. So glad my charms worked. Also, consider getting the morning slot, so you can wash the t-shirt in the afternoon.
For only 500 pesos (or was it 600?), the fee was very reasonable. It includes the ID, uniform, chef’s hat, apron, activity materials and daily snacks. In a way, it is win-win situation for the kids, their parents and Mcdonald’s. Kid’s have fun. Parent’s have fun. Mcdo earns because the companions will surely buy food when their kids are serving.
Like last year, Aki was the youngest in his batch. That did not stop him from making friends and participating in the activities.
Apron and Hat Decorating
Something new he did this year is manning the drive-thru.
I know this sounds biased but doesn’t he look soooooooooo adorable?!
As expected, my fellow stage parents were outside, on the driveway, under the 11AM sun, taking pictures.
Aki also got to wipe tables. It is not part of the program but I asked Ate Mijo to make sure Aki gets to experience that. I have always hated it when inconsiderate customers deliberately make a mess just because someone will clean up for them.
Oh, and let us not forget that Aki placed 2nd in the talent show. Check out the on-the-spot robot that he made in this post.
This is his Ate Mijo.
Thank you to all the Kuyas and Ates of McDonald Dona Soledad who made the experience memorable for Aki and me. 🙂
