5 activities to turn family merienda into fun bonding moments

  For Filipino families, merienda is a tradition typically enjoyed twice a day, either between breakfast and lunch, and between lunch and dinner. But beyond this, it’s also as good a time as any to catch up and bond over light and easy-to-prepare delicious food.   Add a twist to your family’s usual merienda to make them more fun and exciting. Here are five activities worth a try:     Do the no-phone tower challenge   Distractions can occur during merienda time, so one way to avoid them is by setting aside phones and tablets during merienda.

5 Ways to Create The Most Meaningful Summer for your child

School year is about to end, so aside from the long awaited vacation of our kids, we as parents always wanted to make sure that our kids will have a meaningful summer vacation. When I was a kid I remember freely running in our backyard and playing with other kids and that is where I develop my social skills and exercise my sportsmanship in different games that we played.
