Let these suggestions fill up your kids' summer days with fun and excitement! And if you have other ideas, please do share them with us in the comments section below!
Research by Kingston University in London shows that bringing kids to farms are important in challenging ignorance and common misconceptions about farming. Since kids (and parents alike) can talk with farmers, it can address some basic gaps in farming knowledge and at the same time teach kids the value of farming in their lives and the essence of eating healthy. Hopefully, it can also inspire them to think of ideas on how they can contribute to food production in their own little ways.
With temperatures sky rocketing to 38 degrees, you definitely need to think of ways to keep kids cool and refreshed without breaking the bank. In your backyard, build a hammock where you and your little one can rest during the afternoon and simply let the day pass by.
Snuggle closely and look at the skies, build up their imagination and ask them for the formations they see. You can also bring out a book too so you can read to each other. And for good measure, bring out a pillow just in case the cool breeze outdoors lulls you and your little one to sleep.
Fellow parents need to help out one another; especially during the summer when kids are looking forward to spend time with their friends. Bring out the toys and organize afternoon play dates.
If you're looking for some creative ideas on what the kids can do, we organize Play Date Art Classes where kids can have fun doing arts and crafts projects. We just need a minimum of 20 kids in attendance to host it for you.
This is a great idea for family movie nights during the weekends, but still a perfect activity the kids can look forward to during the day. Ask your kids what three movie titles they want to watch. Of course, don't forget to inspect the plot and language of the movie. Parental approval is essential and should not be pushed aside.
This is a fantastic way to spend time with the kids too! Go biking every Saturday morning around the village, play basketball in the community court or explore popular outdoor activities together such as trekking and hiking. There are safe and kid-approved mountain trails that you can try. Get the right gear on and explore the outdoors. And who knows - this might be the start of a hobby or interest that will keep your kids inspired until they get older.
Second batch of summer art classes will be April 25. The fee is still PHP 8,500 inclusive of all art materials. An art exhibit will also follow as the culminating activity.
