When a bus-full of children thought they were going on a field trip to the forest for “Save the Trees Foundation,” you can imagine they weren’t too excited. Some kids were understandably falling asleep or chatting with their friends while the field trip leader spoke about the different types of leaves.
Surprise! Then the kids were then told they are really going to Toys “R” Us to play with all of the toys for the day and they could pick out ANY TOY THEY WANTED!
Watch their reactions below:
I say this every year, but we are going to tone down the Christmas present giving this year to focus on what is really important. I am going to buy one gift that is on my son’s Christmas list. Kind of like the kids in the video, he will get one gift that he really, really wants. I think many of us just buy gifts to buy them because it is Christmas and half the time the kids don’t remember what they got last year!
I like to give gifts that will be used a lot and give the kids a chance to get outside and be active. There are usually great deals after Thanksgiving for toys like basketball hoops, sandboxes, play houses, swing sets, trampolines, bikes, scooters and rollerblades. For my son, these are the types of gifts that get used the most.
