Hey parents! Spend your kid’s summer with worthwhile activities, please set aside excessive plays with your pre-approved hand-held devices. No those gadgets like ipads, tablets, xbox won’t add up knowledge during the development stage they’re at it now. You’ve seen how Steve Jobs and his crew managed to educate their children. They were not allowed to get hooked on consumer gadgets their parents invented, why not? Because the key to educate children depends on the architectural process. How kids absorbed ideas, recreate ideas or come up with an idea of their OWN that isn’t fed by technology made by adults ahead of them. Instead the children are engage in building concepts through orientation with objects, with people and their surroundings.

We’ve compiled 2015 summer activities and programs to engage your child with meaningful play and vacation. Here’s a list we have gathered, we will update the lists from time to time. Note that starting this year we wont include workshops from fast-food establishments and the likes. The 2015 list wanted to focus more on workshops about arts and interesting  activities.

‪Art Fair Philippines‬
‪‎Art Fair PH

Entertaining things about art is when common Juan (people) criticized art as it is, is the loudest form of art pundit comes from the voices of a commoner — without allegory, without playful words, without overindulgent. Only simple  cleverness. I’ve heard witty commentary  (e.g. looks like a placard from AnakBayan for SONA rally) and silly arguments (e.g. why do they gape on a framed piece with sketches that appears like it’s made by  a two year old child? Why do artist make it appear like it’s the highest form of art?) Arts for society may (sound) counterpart to pancakes for breakfast, let’s toast to that!
