At the beginning of June, I was lucky enough to host a super-fun Madagascar 3 Viewing Party for my kids as well as a few neighborhood families. This was a great way to get everyone amped up over the new hit movie, Madagascar 3, which was released in theaters on June 8th! The awesome folks at Children's Claritin sent me a great party kit which included fun activity ideas, recipes, popcorn boxes, and Madagascar and Madagascar 2 on DVD. Sounds like a party to me!
While the kids had fun eating their Madagascar Munch Mix, (reipe to follow) and laughing up a storm at the antics of Alex, Melman and Gloria, I was able to head into the next room to get to know our neighbors better and to talk to them about something many kids have in common: Allergies.
My 12 year old has pretty bad seasonal allergies. He is also allergic to cats. I think he gets that from me, since I am allergic to just about everything. This is why instead of the big, scary dog my husband would love to have, we have a tiny little, hypoallergenic Yorkie named Trouble.
I was surprised to find that all the moms and dads I talked to at our party had children with allergies, too! We also shared a lot of the same complaints about children's allergy medications. It seemed that many of them caused our kids to become drowsy and zombie-like, and that just takes the fun out of being a kid!
I give my son Children's Claritin, and we love it. It tackles his seasonal and environmental allergies quickly, and it doesn't knock him out. I told our neighbors all about it, and even provided coupons and samples to them so they could try it out, too!
Remember that Madagascar Munch Mix I mentioned? Here's the recipe! It's highly adaptable, simple to make, and a definite kid-pleaser!
You can find some valuable printable coupons on the Claritin website.
Claritin’s Facebook page has some fun printable Madagascar activities that your kids are sure to enjoy, too!
