by Louise Castrillo of Mamacademy PH

Goodbye, School Year! Hello, School Break!

What a school year that has been? Certainly, you had your share of victories and challenges along the way. Don't forget to give yourself and your kids a pat on the back and a warm hug because you all made it!

Now that the school year is over, what activities will your child do this school break? 

Here's a quick list of fun activities to keep your kids engaged at home.  

  1. Do Child-friendly Science Experiments

Science experiments are a fun and exciting way to introduce your kids to the world of science. It provides hands-on learning that helps develop the kids' observation, focus, and problem-solving abilities.  

Here are some of the best science experiments for kids:

  1. Bake a Treat

Kids will surely enjoy their time in the kitchen. They can help you with baking, and it's a great way to spend quality time with your kids.

Baking is more than just preparing food. It's an art form that teaches patience, creativity, and discipline. It is also a great way to teach your kids practical skills such as pouring, transferring, and mixing. 

  1. Unleash creativity with Art

Apart from the enjoyment and fulfillment of creating unique artwork and masterpieces, the kids can reap many benefits from making Art. It's a great pre-writing activity that can help with toddlers' fine motor skills development and spatial recognition. Creating artwork can be an outlet for expression and creativity too.

Another aspect that is worth exploring is art appreciation. Art appreciation is not just about appreciating what a piece of artwork looks like but also understanding its historical context and how it fits into art history. It's also about understanding how different people feel about this artwork and why they might feel that way. 

And speaking of art appreciation, Mamacademy PH is launching the Little Learners’ Session this month.  The first learning session is about Henri Matisse with Teacher Annie Cruz on June 11. 

By the end of the session, your kids will have to get a glimpse of the life and Art of Henri Matisse and learn how to make a Henri Matisse-inspired artwork. It will be fun and colorful, so make sure to sign up now.
