5 easy ‘minute to win it’ games for kids

Minute to win it games for kids

This post is sponsored by McDonald’s

When we had the opportunity to meet 12 Fun Mums from our community, we were thrilled. We hosted a very un-McDonald’s Party at McDonald’s Chermside in QLD. Our Mums got to try the new Create Your Taste interactive menu and had the chance to WIN one of three Visa Cards!

On the day we gave away a $500, a $300 and a $200 Visa Card. You can imagine how excited our Mums were!

Our Fun Mums had to take a photo of the burger they had created and give it a name and were judged on the best photo quality, creativity & name. It was a very hard decision to make but Louise & I deliberated and came up with our top 2! You can check out their awesome entries below:

Congratulations to Lauren who won a $500 VISA Gift Card for her entry in our #namemyburger Instagram challenge!! 👏🏻 Huge thank you to @mcdonaldsau for providing us the opportunity to meet and have FUN with some families from our Paging Fun Mum community! Jen & Lou xx 👉🏻 Get your gob around this ripper! Thanks to @mcdonaldsau #createyourtaste and @pagingfunmums #namemyburger comp, I present the tribute to the classic Aussie Barbie, the burger I’ve named “The Great Australian Bite.” Here we have a ‘speshool’ balance of meat and salad using Australian BBQ faves: A thick angus beef patty, melted Colby jack cheese, crispy bacon and a fried egg with some fresh lettuce, juicy tomato, tangy beetroot and caramelised grilled onions. Add a good splash of BBQ sauce and aioli and sandwich it all between a ‘bewdiful’ fresh bakers bun and you’ve gotcha-self a winner. And because McDonald’s uses 100% Australian beef, you can be proud to call this one fair dinkum. Good on ya mate! #createyourtaste #namemyburger @pagingfunmums @mcdonaldsau #thegreataustralianbite #Repost @lozzalicious88 with @repostapp.

For the third prize we thought it would be fun to pick the next 3 best entrants and put them head to head in a minute to win it dual! We had the Mums & their partners at either side of the table. The Mums had a cup of 20 pom poms and another cup to catch them in. Check out our video below. An awesome ‘Minute to Win it Game!

We were so happy to meet some of our Fun Mums and watch them enjoy the new Create Your Taste menu… we asked a few Mum’s for their feedback and this is what they said:

“Sunday was our first ‘Create Your Taste’ experience – and we were impressed! We had expected our burgers to have a ‘fast food’ taste with the added advantage of being able to customise the toppings so we were pleasantly surprised when our Create Your Taste burgers arrived! Our “Create your taste” burgers were definitely cafe/restaurant quality- they tasted fresh and were beautifully presented on their wooden boards. In the past we’ve often purchased McDonald’s for our children and opted for something different for ourselves- however after the wonderful “Create Your Taste” experience I can see many more McDonald’s meals in our future! Highly recommended for families- there really is nothing better than a great meal with access to a playground”.

“Mark and I both enjoyed our burgers, I loved that it was easy to do and I enjoyed using the touch screen options which made it easy to order. I also loved that there was a third choice for sides rather than fries or salad, my coleslaw was amazing and would have it again. Thanks again for having us”!

There was nothing but positive feedback on the day!

Meet and Greet FUN with some of our Fun Mum readers!

You can tell by this photo how much fun we all had!

We would like to thank McDonald’s for making this event possible for us, it was so awesome to meet some of our readers face to face and we only usually talk on-line. This is something that we would love to do more of in the future and look forward to meeting more of our fellow Fun Mums.

We also have some fun videos for you to view too! You can check them out here.

  1. wow! will you kids/GRANDkids have fun with a large package of plastic cups!!! they can build, sort colors, surround their favorite animal critters etc! they do break, but this teaches them to handle them carefully; great for dexterity!!!

  2. Hi there. I work at a library district and we are having a Minute to Win It after-school program. Would it be okay if I use an image or two for our event? I’m having a really hard time finding good ones online! I will put a photo credit next to the image, of course. Great game ideas!
