School’s out and summer is here! Time for our kids to explore and play. But how can they do that when there’s a pandemic and they’re stuck at home?
As much as we want to see the world, we might have to put a pin on our travel plans (at least for now) for our own safety.
But that doesn’t mean our kids can just stay bored and play their online games all summer. They’ve been learning online for almost a year now, so why don’t we continue that and encourage them to participate in online activities that are fun, engaging, and productive?
Let your child unleash her creativity and learn a new skill this summer! Here’s a list of some resources that offer online summer classes and workshops here in the Philippines.
