My kids love Chuck E. Cheese! I mean, what's not to love? They can climb in the giant soft play area, they can play games, win prizes, and eat yummy pizza!
I'm not going to lie, I love when we go to Chuck E. Cheese because it lets Mommy have some fun, too! There are plenty of games I enjoy playing, like skeeball, basketball, and the crazy quarter game trying to get more to fall (I have no idea what it's called, but it always sucks me in).
Chuck E. Cheese is ramping up for National Volunteer Month (April) with a nationwide fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS). Every single Chuck E. Cheese's location across the country will donate 15% of sales from 3-9PM on 3/31 to BBBS when guests mention the organization.
They're continuing to support BBBS after Little Big Night Out through a donation drive throughout April, where families can donate $1, $5 or any amount of their choice to help BBBS match “Littles” with “Big” mentors.
This is a great way for parents to talk to their kids about giving back in a way that isn’t too intense. Some charities that we help – like homeless shelters and cancer support groups- can be a bit scary (I know it's reality, but that doesn't make it any easier to talk to our young children about). I think it's a little less scary for little ones to talk about how BBBS matches kids that may be having a hard time with a nice, smart grown-up to help them make good choices.
And, when kids donate, they get to write their name on a Pin-Up ticket and stick it on the wall to show their support!
We'll be going to Little Big Night Out because it's a fun way to support a great charity! And remember, even if you can't make it to the event, they're collecting donations throughout April.
Chuck E. Cheese is giving one of my readers a Guest Pass (good for a large pizza, 4 drinks + 30 tokens) + 1,000 tickets!
