It was one fun Saturday for my kids as they attend our company’s “Take Your Children To Work” (aka family) day. It was a Turbo-themed event that motivates and inspires kids to “Dream Big!”
Registration started as early as 8am in one of our offices. Envelopes with floor maps, activity schedules, food stubs inside were distributed, along with their stamp cards and event IDs. The schedules were emailed to us a week ahead so it gave me ample time to plan our activities.
After registration, we went ahead to have our free breakfast at the pantry. Then at exactly 9am, the program started (at the 6th floor, same floor as mine, thankfully so I left some of our stuff inside my locker) explaining the mechanics of the whole event and how we can fill our stamp cards to claim our candy bag.
Like I said, I’ve planned what we will do ahead. We did a lot but here are our favorites:
1. Inflatable – Fun Ranch booth
2. Makeover – Glam Diva booth
3. Coloring / Drawing – Faber Castell booth
Lunch was free as well. So the whole event was like a kiddie party, even with 3 photo booths!
My kids took their rest from time to time, watching “Madagascar”, “Puss in boots” and “Lorax” inside the movie room. It was my rest time too. Haha.
The (older) kids were also taught how to print their own calendars (among other activities). So we took this chance to print next year’s calendar using our recent photos.
Of course, before leaving a party, souvenirs and loot bags are given to the guests, right?
My kids had so much fun. And I was glad I get to spend time with them, without me spending a centavo.
This is why I love working for this company. They give importance to what is important to me.
