My daughter just turned five, and these photos are giving me all the feels! When we traveled to Fukuoka, Japan, we didn’t expect for it to be as child friendly as it was. Museums were a joy to visit, and we found incredibly fun places for a three-year old to lose the day in, with little … More Born to play at BorneLund’s Kid-O-Kid
Fukuoka, Japan has just the thing for visiting families with small children. It’s big, it’s fun, and it’s uniquely Japanese. We were not familiar at all with the cartoon characters featured in this conveniently located indoor theme park. Majority of the visitors were Japanese, in fact, but the place did remind us of Kidzoona, only … More Fun, fun, fun at the Anpanman Children’s Museum
We have been to Art Fair Philippines for the first time in 2014. What they did to that ordinary parking building was nothing short of impressive – as were the high-profile attendees from the business, fashion, and entertainment worlds – and in spite of having a spirited 2-year old in tow, the experience was enthralling … More Two years of Art Fair
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!
(Updated) 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 … 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
