A Family Play Day with Kool-Aid & KaBOOM!
It's been a whirlwind week here at Role Mommy where we kicked off our Monday with the announcement that we were named one of the Just For Fun editors at Lifetime Moms along with Rock and Roll Mama. And in keeping with the spirit of our new title, Role Mommy hosted a Play Day along with Kool-Aid and KaBOOM! to help promote a nationwide initiative to encourage individuals to host community play days in their hometowns from September 19-September 27.
KaBOOM! Play Days are free, fun-for-the-whole-family outdoor events that celebrate play! You can plan and host one in your community with the help of their new Play Day Planner. Act quickly and you'll even get a FREE Play Day Kit, too!
Check out this great shot of some super cool mom bloggers hanging out with the Kool-Aid Man! (From left to right: Kimberly at Mom in the City, Esti at Primetime Parenting, Katja at Skimbaco Lifestyle, Beth at Role Mommy, Liz at Cool Mom Picks & Mom 101 and Anna at Mommy Poppins).
At our NYC Play Day kick off event at Studio 450, some of our favorite parenting bloggers were on hand along with their kids for an afternoon of games, crafts, sliders, mini ice cream cones, mac and cheese, chicken fingers and of course...Kool-Aid! Plus, celebrity children's photographer Jade Albert photographed more than two dozen moms and their kids. The resulting photos were so magnificent that a few could easily wind up on magazine covers - no joke!
We even hosted our Role Mommy & Friends show on Blog Talk Radio live for three hours - interviewing our amazing attendees as well as representatives from KaBOOM! and Kool-Aid. We did try to nab an exclusive interview with the Kool-Aid Man but we discovered he's the strong silent type.
If you missed out on the action, have no fear! We've got our Blog Talk Radio show that you can listen in to while you're working, cleaning, getting the kids ready for camp, or just plain chilling out. Plus, we also have great re-cap video and Whrrl photo montage with links to all the incredible blogging parents who came out to support a great cause and enjoy a fun filled play day with their kids.
