Connecting With Your Kids After School

This post was sponsored by OREO as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. 

When my kids come home from school, it's important for me to connect with them about there day. Whether that be with simple questions like, "what did you have for lunch?", or more in depth things like, "What did you like most, and what did you like least about the day?". I know a lot of parents struggle with getting their kids to open up about what's going on in their lives, but someone told me years ago if you get your kid at the table, and give them a snack, they'll open right up. That's something we've definitely tried to make a part of our family culture since the kids have been in school the last few years. 

OREO has been a long time favorite in our snack line up, whether it's their original flavor, a fun holiday themed treat, or their two new flavors: OREO Dark Chocolate and OREO Carrot Cake Cookies, we're big fans of them all. The OREO Dark Chocolate will help you embrace the darkness and add a dose of playful excitement to the shorter and colder days ahead, while the OREO Carrot Cake are a new twist on an old favorite cookie enjoyed by millions around the world. 

OREO is celebrating, "The Stuf Inside" at Walmart with fun events happening at your local Walmart stores on on February 14th through February 17th. These events will include in-store sampling of the OREO Dark Chocolate Cookies and OREO Carrot Cake Cookies, fun games, giveaways, and free swag items! To find a store near you, visit

While you're at your local Walmart store, be sure to pick up some after school snacks that your kids will love, and make that time after school each day as special as possible. It used to be a time of day that I really dreaded, but now it's a time that I've come to look forward to and embrace. Our time at home with our kids is so quick and fleeting, I love being able to soak in as much of it as possible, even if it's just a few minutes over an afternoon snack before we get into the throws of homework and dinner making.
