30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 3 Community
Today I’m thankful for the community I live in and the wonderful events they put on for kids. I think it’s great for local businesses to host events for kids. It’s a way to bring parents and kids together to enjoy a day of fun. It helps break up a normal routine and gives us a chance to do something different with our kiddos. The best part is that it gives us a chance to wear the kiddos out. ;) Hehehe….
Recently we were able to attend a Kid’s Expo hosted by Michiana Family Magazine. They had several different vendors there that parents could visit and get information from. There was lots of candy, balloons, face painting, games, entertainment, and bounce houses.
My little munchkin loves being out and about. He’s a very social little man and it’s just too cute to see how he reacts in new situations. He was running all over the place so excited about all the things around him. At one point Mickey Mouse had caught his eye and he took off running towards Mickey screaming “mouussse!!!!!! Shortly after the Mickey Mouse discovery he discovered candy. The kid loves candy!
Then it was on to the bounce house area. They had several different sizes of bounce houses and they had one that was meant for little munchkins like Mason. He was a little apprehensive about the whole thing at first. He wanted to get in it soooo badly, but just couldn't brave it. It took him about 15 minutes and he finally took the leap. Then I couldn't get him out of it!
Events like this can show your children that they are important by giving them opportunities to have a day all about them. Attending these types of events as a family teaches our children the importance of doing things together, spending time together, and enjoying things together.
To find local events for your kiddos in your area check your local newspaper or contact your local businesses.
