McDonald’s Kiddie Crew VS Jollibee Mini Managers Camp from Kids’ Point of View
That cute bee wins every time. I expose my kids to both stores but they always prefer Jollibee. Last year, we did a week-long Jollibee Mini Managers Camp and it was truly a fun experience. It’s been a year but they still talk about it. So this year, we need diversity. Hello, McDonald’s Kiddie Crew.
I finally convinced them to try McDonald’s. Funny enough, after eating their favorite Jollibee meal we headed to other store and registered to McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop – Explorer Edition at SM City Lipa. Since they experienced both, let’s check my kids’ point of view.
Before I tell you my kids’ opinions, let me give you a background in case you’re not yet aware of this program.
What is McDonald’s Kiddie Crew?
The McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop is a summer program specially designed for kids ages 6-12 years old. Each day is filled with fun activities that aim to build confidence, harness creativity and teach the importance of hard work, discipline, teamwork, sharing and responsibility.McDo.ph
So let’s interview my kids.
- Which is more fun?
- “McDo! Jollibee!” Yes, they’re undecided!
McDonald’s on the job training was awesome! Probably because they only had 7 kids thus easy to manage. My girls were at the counter long enough, taking orders, handing out the change, even using POS service. They mostly enjoyed preparing drinks, fries and of course, sundaes. But the classroom program is not so lively, well then we only had 2 days at McDonald’s and 6 days at Jollibee, maybe not fair to compare?
The classroom programs however of Jollibee were full of games, singing and dancing. Though they did burger making for both and as expected, anything related to food, they’re interested instantly. It’s also a big group so probably that’s the reason why. They made friends since they’re together for six days. They’re just starting to mingle on second day at McDo but also the last day so no chance to get to know each other and play together. So if you’re not a working parent, or you have someone you can ask to accompany your child, then choose the 5-day program.
- What about the food?
- “Jollibee spaghetti and burger! McDo’s nuggets! Mcfloat!
Be in my shoes, momma, most Sundays, holidays, weekdays even take outs: Jollibee meals. Imagine my relief when they finally sat there at McDonald’s without the grumpy face, eating nuggets!
- The activities?
- “McDo’s mazes, coloring activities”
- “Jollibee dance, lots of games!”
- “Serving McDo’s sundae, drinks, fries!”
- “Jollibee’s Mascot dance”
Well the winners are Jollibee and McDonald’s crews, managers and staffs who took the time to accommodate these curious kids. Thumbs up to you, hard-working, super eager and patient, all-smile employees of both stores.
