*We are so happy to partner with Kinder Joy™—a treat that our families have truly fallen in love with!
A few days before school starts every year, my kids start to get the jitters. What will their new teacher be like? Who will be in their class? What kind of bathroom pass will the teacher have?
Back-to-school time can be both exciting and a little nerve-wracking for many kids. Some are starting a brand new school, meeting new teachers, or just have a few jitters to work out. Some kids even experience anxiety, especially when they think too much about the unknown factors of starting a new school year. My daughter is definitely one of those.
It’s okay to be nervous, and I tell my daughter that. But I also remind her of all the fun things about school that she loves. I think validating her feelings helps, along with a fun tradition to take her mind off her nerves.
That’s why we started a back-to-school tradition of family game night the night before school starts. It helps take their minds off their nervousness and focus on the fun.
Back-to-School Game Night Eases Jitters
Back-to-school game night is our kids’ favorite tradition. We break out the games (which we rarely have time to sit down and play, so it’s a special occasion) and share a fun treat together. This year I picked up some of these cool Kinder Joy treats and the kids were thrilled!
Have you tried Kinder Joy yet? They are amazing!
Kinder Joy™ is a treat like no other with two separately sealed halves – a treat side made of two creamy layers and a second half containing an exciting mystery toy!
It’s the perfect treat for back-to-school—I like to surprise my kiddos when they come home with this special treat. Kinder Joy is here to help you kick off the new school year with lasting memories that your family will cherish forever because not only do they get to enjoy the treat, but there’s also the toy that inspires us to play together and share a little bonding moment.
Back-to-school game night and Kinder Joy can go hand-in-hand to help you create memorable moments as everyone heads back to school this fall!
Games, treats, and laughter
We started this back-to-school tradition of game night when our daughter was headed to Kindergarten. She’s a worrier and just couldn’t calm down the night before school started. So to take her mind off her jitters, we pulled out the games and it worked! We played all her favorites until it was bed time and she was so happy.
We had fun as a family and she never forgot that. In fact, she’s the reason game night became a tradition. Every single year she is the first one to dust off the games. Traditions help bind families together.
And no game night would be complete without a treat. Kinder Joy is the perfect game night treat! If you haven’t tried it yet, do! My kids adore the treat plus the toy and I think I love the treat just as much (if not more) than they do.
And here’s a fun hack: you can even use the toys that come in each Kinder Joy treat as game pieces! We discovered this while playing Clue and finding that half the pieces were missing. Smart and fun!
This back-to-school season, share the joy of Kinder Joy with your family. Replace nervousness with fun and family by creating special bonding moments like back-to-school game night.
Try Kinder Joy for yourself. You’re going to love them!
