Can you smell it in the air? It’s summer! Just few more weeks and my kids will say goodbye to school uniforms and homework! For two months, that is. Then both will start with their summer classes. My son will continue with his piano lessons and my daughter will either take up supplemental reading or math. Both are also trying out an arts workshop but enrollment will depend on whether they will like it or not! If you are planning on letting your kiddos get busy this summer, there are so many summer classes in Cebu but my tip is, get your cue from your child. Take the time to find out what their interests are! I do not believe in forcing them to take up something they do not like.
One thing that we practice at home is “Just try it out.” If there is an opportunity for them to learn a new skill or to pursue a hobby, I don’t force them to do it especially if they have zero interest but they are required to “just try it out.” I want them to get a feel of things and see if it is something that they can grow to love. If not, then all is well that ends well!
Having said that, I also want to say that I believe that every kid should learn to play at least one musical instrument. At least just one! Whether it’s guitar, piano, ukulele, flute or even kubing! Just one! And they don’t even have to take up a formal class for it. An uncle, an aunt or a cousin can help them learn how to strum the guitar, play the kumbo-lata or piano.
I think music makes life so much more beautiful and it becomes more special if you are the one making music.
Okay, enough blabbing.
I have listed down a few summer classes worth looking into! My daughter and I have attended the orientations/trials for most of these workshops so I can guarantee that they will be worth your time and money. And your kids will love them!

Character Bento Making Workshop with CharaBento Cebu

If your kid is into Anime, then I am 100% sure that he or she will enjoy CharaBento Cebu’s Bento making workshops!
