Every time I plan a big family trip or exciting activity I plan to keep it a secret and surprise the kids on the big day. That never happens. When it comes to big surprises, I just can’t keep them to myself. I know that telling the kids about an upcoming trip will lead to weeks or months of anticipation and asking about it, but I just have to share the news with someone so I end up telling them. Since I am not good at keeping the big secrets, we bask in the little surprises that happen more naturally.
It’s the day to day little surprises, like picking the kids up from school and heading to the playground when they thought they were going home, that make me smile. I love putting a note or a favourite treat in the kids’ lunch bags so that they will have an unexpected surprise at school. Snack Packs are a great choice for this. My kids all have their favourite flavours, and they get pretty excited when we have them for their lunches. I recently started hiding all of the fun lunch foods like Snack Packs in the corner cupboard so that the kids don’t know we have them. Then when they open their lunch bags at school they have a fun surprise! It’s fun to add a little sticky note with a heart or happy face to the top of the pudding cup for a little extra magic.
Whether you are pulling a Snack Pack out of a lunch box, cupboard or knapsack, it’s a moment that’s fun-filled, playful and surprising. At Snack Pack, they call this Playground Everywhere, because it’s a perfect way to turn any place into a fun-filled spot.
When I was a kid there were ice cream bicycles that rode around the neighbourhoods with bells ringing. They had a little freezer on the front of the bike, and they had all of the delicious ice cream treats that kids love. I loved the sound of those bells. It was always unexpected, and if my parents were willing to fork over a few dollars, it was a great day.
You can feel that excitement again with the Amazing Snack Pack Pudding Truck! It is traveling around the Greater Toronto Area right now and it is a fun, branded truck filled with delicious pudding to make back-to-school and exciting time for children. So keep your eyes and ears open and be ready to enjoy some treats from the pudding truck. I know my kids would be thrilled to come across the Amazing Snack Pack Pudding Truck! It looks like the Pudding Truck has already been making children happy in the GTA.
