I love weekends when the four of us have free time and freedom to choose how to bond with each other. These times are precious to my husband and I because as the kids grow up, our moments together are getting less and less. We parents get more and more busy with work while the kids are the same with their school projects and their own set of friends. Sometimes, I think of ways how we can bring back the days when my daughters were still younger, when we will watch cartoons, or play board games or just talk about anything under the sun. Sometimes I will bring out our Spongebob CDs, we record songs together, or sometimes, we play Monopoly. Minsan, nakakasawa din so I find some new things we can all work on together.
Recently, we tried out a Japanese DIY Hamburger Kit which my eldest saw in YouTube. I got the kit from one of the stalls in the last Mommy Mundo Clearance Sale at FunRanch. It costed P250 a box which is quite steep but we had so much fun that I decided to blog about it. After all, what we buy are the memories, right?
Skills learned : patience, attention to details, appreciation to your sense of smell, finger skills as you need to cut and mold.
My daughter and I had fun playing with these food items. The mini burgers, fries and soda smelled just like the real thing. It’s like we’ve played like bakers and chefs. We even tasted all of them. Well, they tasted a teeny bit real but not so much. I also didn’t like the kids to eat much as we don’t know exactly what the ingredients are made of. They are just play things but they were really fun. I’ve seen kits being sold in weekend sweet stalls such as in Trinoma and UP Town Center.
We are excited to try other DIY kits and I’ll make sure to share them all here. Happy bonding!
