I want my children to be happy and encourage them to find positive aspects about things. We talk about the best thing that happened at school each day, share their “good news” for the week, and other positive, happy events. It’s important to both my husband and to me that they find happiness in their days because we want them to remember a happy childhood even if they can’t recall every little detail of the days.
One of our favorite things to do together is to work on a project with each other. Whether we’re creating an art project, decorating something in the house, or making a recipe together, the kids love to spend time working with their mom. Of course making awesome treats would have to top the list of favorite activities, so we whipped up a fun one earlier today. The kids helped me create it and we wanted to share it with you – the Cookie S’mores Ice Cream Sundae.
Cookie S’Mores Ice Cream Sundae Recipe
Marshmallow cream or melted marshmallows
HERSHEY’S Spreads in Chocolate
HERSHEY’S Chocolate Syrup
HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Chips
Place several sugar cookies on plates.
Melt marshmallows for 15-30 seconds until large and fluffy or use marshmallow cream. Spread marshmallow over top of sugar cookies.
Spread HERSHEY’S Spreads in Chocolate over the top of the marshmallow cream.
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the chocolate.
Drizzle HERSHEY’S Chocolate Syrup over the top of the ice cream, then sprinkle HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Chips on top. Add a HERHSEY’S KISS to the top of each sundae for the final touch.
April 28th is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day and it’s a great time to share more of our day to day lives with our children. Because I work at home, my kids are around while I’m working in the evenings and on the weekends, but they don’t always pay attention to what I’m working on. As part of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, I asked my children if they would be interested in learning more about what I do.
My younger daughter took me up on my offer. We spent the day together, setting up photography shots, taking pictures, editing the photos, deciding what to write about, writing a post, and sharing it online. She mostly loved helping to set up the photography props for the pictures and turned out to be really good at it!
It was fun to spend the day working with her and sharing more about what I do for a living. She had a great time and may have found a new passion for photography. I’d love for her to help me with my business as she gets a little older, if she’s interested. If not, we still had a great time together and found a new hobby that makes her happy.
Whether it’s for a specific day like Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day or just an average day, it’s important to share those special moment in time with our children. HERSHEY’S helps us create those magical moments together, so even when we’re busy with the responsibilities of life, we can make the decision to enjoy time together. To choose happiness.
Hello Happy. Hello Hershey’s.
