Summer Bummer…Not!!!

I try not to let my kids get bored this summer so I get them into different activities.  Number one important thing for me is that they learn something from them.   Let me share some with you.

painting
Painting: Creativity/Imagination, Following directions, and Focus is exercised.  This also enhances their eye-hand coordination which is a big help in preparation for big school.
baking
Baking:  A good experience.  It also teaches them how food is made.  That there are ingredients to everything they eat.  Cleanliness and Sanitation are good topics to be taken up during the process.  You don’t have to be a chef to do basic cooking/baking.  They’re kids, they’ll have fun!
swimming
Swimming:  Of course, we’d also like to get into physical activity to strengthen their bodies.  My main goal is for them to learn how to swim for their lives if needed.  You’ll never know what situation you’ll get into in the future.  Besides, swimming is very beneficial for all ages.
Gymnastics: This brings out the fun in doing different tricks in a not so common setting.  It's like playing too!
Gymnastics: This brings out the fun in exercising.  Doing different tricks in a not so common setting. It’s like playing too!  Kids love it coz there are a lot of girls with them.  There are also boys gymnastics available at this Milo Best Gymnastics Camp.

Since Chesca loves to sing and dance, I also enrolled her in Trumpets at the Podium Mall.  This toddler class doesn’t only teach the kids to sing or dance, but it’s also aimed to bring them out of their shells.

 

Try to also incorporate workbook activities with your toddlers this summer.  Simple fun workbooks available in bookstores would do the trick.  This is just so his writing, reading, math skills could be honed over the summer as well.

 

So you see mommies, there’s so much to do out there this summer!  I know the heat has been unbearable the past few weeks and its too lazy to go out, but think of the opportunity you’re giving your kids in letting them experience new things.  This is also where we’d be able to discover what they’re good at and maybe they’ll surprise you in a hidden talent you never thought they had! 🙂

 

Painting and Baking-can easily be done in your own homes.

Swimming- there are a lot of swimming schools around the metro. If you have a pool, private instructors can come over. 

Gymnastics- Club Gymnastica, Kapitolyo.  Little Gym, El Pueblo.  Kids Klub, Shaw.

Trumpets-5th level Podium Mall
