Ykaie and I are avid fans of McDonald’s. She loves Chicken McNuggets and I am loyal to my number one favorite since I was 12 — the Big Mac. When I was still single and younger, and I drop by McDonalds for a quick meal during the Summer, I often see kids greet me at the door and help assemble my order. I find it too cute and at that time, I made a mental note to enroll my would-be child at the time to this program.
Fast forward to 2013, I enrolled 5 year old Ykaie to the McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop and she loved every single day. She wanted to do it again last year (2014) but I wasn’t able to enroll her. I guess it was because she took swimming lessons and I was a bit busy with our house construction.
This year, though I made sure she does it again, specially since they put up a McDonald’s near our home. What made it more fun for her is because she did it with one of her closest cousin — her ate Chellie.
On her first day, they were toured inside the kitchen premises and was given a chance to experience the different stations inside the counter.
And because we loved them, we ordered from them when they were incharge of the counter. Even my Tita Becky and cousins Cyra and Cyvrine was there…
Ykaie’s first customer was daddy, of course! He wasn’t here in 2013 because he was still in Dubai so this was the first time he saw Ykaie as a Kiddie Crew.
I wasn’t able to make it on the second day because I had to run some errands but on the third day, I was back to take more photos. This is when they practiced dancing “Do The Ronald”.
After the dance practice, they all wore their chef’s hat and apron — this was the day when they made their own cheeseburger.

My camera caught Ykaie delivering orders to a waiting customer….
Here she is at the counter once again.
5th Day (Graduation)
Yay! 5th day is Graduation Day!
The whole gang did a presentation — they all danced “Do The Ronald”. After that, they each explained what their artwork on the reusable Happy Meal box meant.
Then just like a normal graduation, they marched to the front and got their badge and certificates!
I know Ykaie learned a lot from her one week experience at the Mcdonald’s Kiddie Crew 2015. It was Chellie’s first time at being a kiddie crew and I know she enjoyed it as well.
