Akira’s school hosts this little event called ‘Night of Song and Dance’ every year, just before the holiday break. For the students and teachers, the last day of school is reserved for class Christmas parties, and a not-so-formal concert of song and dance for the parents and guests. Since it happens every year, Night of … More A kiddie kind of Christmas
A reunion, field trip, play date, get-together! With dinosaurs and donuts! … More Dinosaurs and donuts day!
No Halloween gimmicks for us this year. But grateful to my daughter’s school for having trick or treat mixed in with celebrating United Nations Day. It was a fun and memorable last day of class before the All Soul’s Day break. Her class was assigned Greece. They learned how to say ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ in … More Greeks!
My daughter had a classmate that practiced gymnastics. For a petite girl, she was agile, and could do backbends already (the yogi in me cried inside a little). She’s also around 4 years old. Personally I’m not very familiar with gymnastics and don’t know a lot of kids who practice the sport, or grownups who … More Summer gymnastics
I’m all for indoor play areas for children, but if there’s one thing that can make me not want to try a place out is a ridiculously high entrance fee. We have tried a lot of places, they all tend to be the same, so it’s a bit of a hard sell for me to … More Hello, Kidzania!
At 4 years old, Akira still finds the mall’s indoor playgrounds a happy place. It still excites her when she spots one, she still has a great time in one, and really, if your family is the type that’s in a mall at least once a week, then it pays to make the indoor playground … More Yes, we still do indoor playgrounds
Swimming! A popular summer activity for sure, but also a fun activity in the nippy-sometimes-stormy -ber months (very Filipino reference for months that end with ‘ber’), who would’ve thought. J has been bugging me about swimming lessons for Akira, and it took me a while to pursue any leads since it wasn’t exactly the right season for it. … More Toddler swimming lessons
Yoga. One of the few things that has truly positively impacted my life. I got back into yoga regularly thanks to a corporate package late last year. When I resigned, I turned to online videos. I discovered a good one, and got to doing it regularly at home. Didn’t take the little one long en0ugh to … More Kid tries yoga
You don’t need to convince me that play is an important part of childhood and that it’s integral to a child’s growth and development. I’m all for play and more physical activity, especially these days. And since options are pretty limited when it comes to playing outdoors, I’m a big fan of indoor kiddie play … More What’s a play class like? Our ClubBambino experience
Akira is a very active kid. I remember when she was about 8 months old, she already insisted on walking with assistance (somebody stands behind her and holds her hands). We’d do these drills all over the house, outside the house, up and down steps, and I tried my best to stop only when she … More 5 indoor areas for kids that are built for play
