Make the most of our time with our little ones before we say goodbye to summer

Summer is almost closing as June drums nearer. Our little ones spent almost two months at home, but have we really made most of our time with them? With the many things that we need to do at home and in the workplace, we often sacrifice time spent with our children. Most parents find vacation or summer time the best time to earn for a living to prepare for the upcoming school year. As the end of summer draws near, now is the best opportunity to start creating wonderful memories that they can look back to once the school starts. Whether you want to make up for the days you were too busy or simply cap off the summer on a good note, there’s still activities available for you and your kids to enjoy. Break free from the usual trips to the mall and try these five activities instead.

Watch a theater show!


It is rare nowadays to see children not glued to their gadgets since we are now living in a world of video streaming and smartphones. Introduce them to other forms of entertainment like live theater. Just make sure that you choose a show that is child-friendly. Look for youthful and energetic productions that also teach golden values through the story. A good example of this is PETA’s MgaKuwento Ni Lola Basyang! The play is like a fairytale book that has come to life as Lola Basyang shares stories of magical spells, kings and their kingdoms. Without a doubt, you’ll enjoy it too!


Join a workshop.


Make your bonding activity an educational one too! There are plenty of workshops available these days but pick ones that you can do together as parent and child. This way, it’s not only you or your kid that gets to enjoy the activity. Rather, you get a chance to do it together. Afterwards, you can laugh at the little errors that you made, share the learning that you earned and even display your output at home!


Create and tell your own stories!


How about exploring the art of words with your little one? Filipinos naturally love storytelling. Our rich folklore is a testimony to that. There are also many ways that you can create and tell your own story. This is a chance to let loose and be kid yourself too as you and your child learn how to tell a story in the most animated way possible!

Give visual arts a try!


Simple drawing, coloring and crafts-making are always a big hit with children, but you can make the experience even better by making art together. Producing these little artworks will be a creative experience for the both of you. Watch your kid’s eyes light up as you take this artsy journey as a pair. It will surely be an experience neither of you will forget.

Compose a song together.


Of course, a Pinoy family bonding option that never fails is music. Make your bonding experience emotionally enriching by asking your child what he wants to sing about, and composing a song together! You don’t even have to be musically inclined to try it out. Bring out your old guitar or even just a pen and some paper. The song may not be perfect but your little one will definitely associate it to the fun you had while writing it.


Cap off summer with a fun and learning experience for both parent and child. Join us at the PETA Theater Center and enjoy a fun-filled afternoon with your kids. Family passes are available for the MgaKuwento Ni Lola Basyang play and your workshop of choice. Book your tickets through Ticketworld (http://bit.ly/24tIu7w).
