Unique Summer Classes for Kids

Posted on

Summer’s coming up and as per usual we parents need to find new activities for our kids to try and learn. The usual classes and lessons include sports like basketball and martial arts, swimming, art and dancing. Though these are all worthwhile activities there are plenty more that kids can do and learn. These suggested unique summer classes can be both fun and educational yet provide kids an introduction to activities beyond the norm.

One thing we need to keep a watch on is our kid’s health especially when it comes to sunburn, sore eyes, and diarrhea. During the summer kids are out and about and are exposed to the sun most of the day, other kids and a variety of food. Make sure to have your kids drink their glass of Nido twice a day so they’re well protected and stay strong during play time.

Archery 

Classes for archery have been around for quite some time but doesn’t have as many attendees as your usual sports lessons. Archery teaches kids focus, coordination, and confidence. After the slew of popular movies such as the Hunger Games, Brave, and archers Hawkeye and the Arrow archery became much more popular.

Suggested venue: Kodanda Archery Range

Parkour

Another athletic pursuit is parkour. This needs careful consideration though but ideally if your child finds this interesting it’s better to have them learn from the best. An alternative to learning parkour on YouTube is having them attend lessons. Some benefits include improving physical strength, quick thinking skills and enhancing instincts.

Suggested venue: Ninja Academy

Animation

More and more Filipinos are becoming animators and have penetrated Hollywood with their unique talent. Notable Filipino animators are Nelson Bohol (Inside Out, Monsters University, Brave, WALL-E, Ratatouille, Cars, and Finding Nemo), Armand Serrano (Big Hero 6, Brother Bear, Hotel Transylvania), and Josie Trinidad (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled).

Suggested venue: Dream Play Dream Studio

Cooking

From baking pretzels to cupcakes there’s plenty of courses when it comes to learning how to cook. It’s a fun activity to do with your kids especially for moms like me who aren’t versed in the kitchen.

Jael is a very curious boy and often likes to try new things and food as long as it looks appealing. I’m not always there to see what kind of food he eats but with LACTOBACILLUS Protectus in every glass of milk that he drinks I know his body is prepared and ready for any illnesses that may try to invade.

Suggested venues: Brotzeit, The Maya Kitchen

Music

Knowing how to play at least one musical instrument is a strong suit. When I was younger I wanted to learn how to play the guitar. That never came to fruition though. My eldest learned how to play the ukelele on his own but I’m sure he would have loved to attend classes.

Suggested venue: Uke Box Caffe

Mermaid Swimming 

Why not have your kids learn swimming with a twist? Mermaid swimming is slowly becoming popular and a trending activity especially this summer. This will be a hit with The Little Mermaid fans and I’m one of them!

Suggested venue: Philippine Mermaid Swim Academy

Visit The Science Circus Exhibition and Enjoy Mastercard Savings

Posted on

Science Circus: Step Right Up! is the 5th traveling exhibition of The Mind Museum,  supported in part by Mastercard, Limkaco Industries, Uratex, and Thompson Hardware and Lighting Center.

The Science Circus: Step Right Up! showcases the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits that deceive the senses and boggle the mind.

While the nearly 250-year history of the circus abounds with awe-inspiring demonstrations of physical skill – such as high-flying aerial artists, to death-defying daredevils – the Science Circus challenges our traditional notions of a circus by focusing on the mind’s “acrobatic” perceptual tricks.

As the guests enter the exhibition, they are welcomed by a festive, colorful façade which sets the tone for the sights and sounds they are about to experience. These interactive exhibits are displayed simultaneously in three adjacent Rings. Guests can go in any of the Rings in the order they please.

Ring One, or Deception Perception is a menagerie of exhibits that will prompt you to question whether to see is to believe. Can you always trust your senses? Is what you see as real as it seems? Can your brain produce motion where there is none? Your first venture into the Circus will unveil the “blindness” of your mind’s eye.

Ring Two highlights Pieces of Incredible Engineering, where guests can engage their minds in puzzles and relish how math and art come together. This central area is animated by simple machines, and engages guests in activities that evoke their inner engineer.

Last but not least, Ring Three is Encounters with the Masters, where guests can interact with and learn the secrets of the Masters of Illusion. They can take on the challenges posed by each Master, and discover how our brains can be ensnared by smoke and mirrors.

Visit the Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition right now for another wonderful ride through the world of Science! To make it even more enticing, a special treat awaits!
