Summer’s fast approaching! That means it’s time for the kids to explore what’s beyond the four corners of the classroom. Here are a few discoveries we made when we visited ExpoKid last week that you might want to check out:
In this day and age, learning how to make a computer work is a must. In Young Coders, kids as young as 3 years old can learn the fundamentals of operating a computer. Of course, all classes are done in a fun and creative way. Classes start on April 3 and here’s their schedule:
Code and Play (3-4 years old) MWF 10 am – 12 pm
Code and Explore (5-7 years old) TThS 10 am – 12 pm

Z would love to join the Junior Astronaut Academy but he’s underage (minimum age is 7). But this is really cool! We’ve all been curious about what astronauts eat in space and how it feels like to walk on the moon. There will be two runs this summer and each costs P11,800 inclusive of: flight suit, cadet kit and astronaut snacks. Schedule is as follows:
April 17 – 21, 2017 | 9 am to 4 pm | Science Centrum, Riverbanks Center, Marikina City
April 24 – 28, 2017 | 9 am to 4 pm | Diliman Preparatory School, Commonwealth Ave., Quezon City

I’m sure your summer get-togethers are all lined up. Why not turn your party into a creative pursuit for the kids?! Kiddie Art Kart offers packages like painting on canvas, foam mosaic art and crown and hat making, which will give the children a few unplugged hours and a chance to create something with their hands.
Another coding class! Junior Academy for Coding Knowledge or JACK aims to provide a high-quality learning experience for children in a fun and engaging environment. I myself want to learn how to let a BB8 droid move or make my own Minecraft-inspired game! Children as young as 7 years old can enroll without any coding experience. Visit their website for the courses offered.

If you’d prefer to stay home to avoid the sweltering heat, Oli’s Boxship can provide hours of fun to your child! It’s a box delivered to your home which has 2-3 activities that centrals around a theme, like solar system or animals. This themed subscription box is designed for kids 4-9 years old and will help develop their intellectual and motor skills while honing their ability to express themselves. I think I’d try one out for Z and Y! A one time subscription costs P980 and it includes all the materials for the activity.

Z and Y enjoyed their yoga session last October and I think it’s a must for kids today to learn yoga since this helps them be calm and focused. Up to now, we try to practice some of the poses, especially when were all agitated.
