Since there was no school during summer, we had to find different activities for the kids. One time we brought the kids to this new Playhouse in Megamall. The moment Chesca saw it, she was so excited to go in. Little experiences like this makes her day. It makes my day too seeing that big bright smile on her face while playing.
This is located in building A, a floor above National Bookstore. Playing fee costs around 180php/hr. The kids have to be accompanied by an adult (who need to wear socks). They also have this fingerprint scanner for the person who will pick up the child. If it’s not your fingerprint that’s recorded, they won’t let you take the child. At least they have some security measures.
Parents can have coffee while waiting for the kids at Figaro which is a few steps from this playhouse. That’s what us mommies did while the kids were playing.
Every so often, it’s nice to have play dates wherein you just don’t do free play. In one of our play dates, we decided to do some baking. Our toddlers learned the following:
learn what the ingredients are
improve motor skills by stirring & decorating
wearing aprons to keep their clothes clean
and of course discover how a cupcake is made
The things we prepared:
Brownie mix (for starters, let’s do it the easy way :-P)
1/2 and 1 inch cupcake molds and paper molds in different colors.
Marshmallows & chocolate toppings
2 aluminum bowls, wire whisks, aprons, and spatulas (2pcs so 2 kids can do it together)
Small table for kids to do their preparation (with table cloth to protect table)
2 eggs & 1 cup of butter
Disposable plastic decorating bag or pastry bag (12Php each at cook’s exchange)
Cameras to document it 🙂
Moms and kids surely enjoyed this activity. Maybe next time, we’ll make something more challenging. Try doing your own creative play date. Try it, you’ll surely have fun while learning a thing or two 🙂
