KIDULTING AS PARENTING STYLE
Gone are the days when fun is reserved only for kids.
Adults are now trying to recapture their childhood experiences through playing console games or visiting their favorite kid theme park or having a spontaneous night of pajama party. This trend, known as kidulting, is a way to relive the best childhood memories, to temporarily escape adult activities, and to remember the good, old days of being carefree… because who does not want to, right?
But is kidulting for single adults only? Of course not! In fact, kidulting can also be a method of parenting where adults and kids bond together in activities they can both playfully participate. Isn’t it adorable to see a whole family infusing fun in their lifestyle just to create joyful memories for their kids, and at the same time, unleash the “kid-in-me” of the parents?
Here are some kidulting ideas that are simple, accessible, and affordable but worth the try!
Paint and Create
Creating art together with your children is definitely a proven stress-buster while fueling the creativity of your kids. It’s hitting two birds in one stone! If you think simple patterns will bore you as an adult, try creating thematic artworks like an “under the sea” painting or a “secret garden” coloring.
Play the Role
Seeing your kids play as a doctor or an engineer or a lawyer inspire you to work harder to give them a better future, right? But what if you join the fun? Try to pretend as the doctor’s patient or the engineer’s client or the lawyer’s colleague. You will see how promising your kids are with their witty reasoning. Plus, you can also guide them as early as now in choosing the career they want to have someday.
Bake it free
Remember the times when you did “pretend play” with cooking or baking? You can actually play again with your kids or level up and teach them to bake and maybe you’ll discover the genius baker within them. You may choose recipes which your kids can also do easily and conveniently. It is also an avenue to teach them healthy-eating habits.
Bonus tips: While doing these activities, make sure you already prepared on-the-go snacks that you and your kids can munch anywhere. Of course, you don’t want to spoil the momentum of your bonding, in case your kids get hungry in the middle of your activity.
So, bring Gardenia Pocket Sandwich for a pocket full of fun bonding moments! For only Php12, you are assured of an innovative, fresh and yummy goodness that is available in 4 flavors: chocolate, peanut butter, cheese, and strawberry pastillas, that your kids and kid-in-you will love!

After all, family team work makes the dream work.
