    Go on a treasure hunt!

    This Easter, Ayala Museum presents a different sort of egg hunt for brave and adventurous young explorers, the Timeless Treasure Hunt: Mystery Game for the Family. Scattered all over the museum are golden eggs. Kids will have to decipher clues to find out how they got there and what they could possibly mean! It's happening this Sunday, April 16, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ayala Museum, Makati. Participation fee is P750 for an adult-child pair. Want to join? Call 759-8288.  


    Attend a few parenting classes

    Lots of things are happening at The Parenting Emporium this Holy Week Saturday, April 15. The morning's activities are all about breastfeeding. First up is Breastfeeding 303 which will tackle nursing a baby who's ready for solids up until he becomes a toddler. Right after that is a breastfeeding support group session headed by La Leche League. 

    In the afternoon is A Babywearing Class for parents who are thinking of getting slings and carriers. And in the afternoon is (an unforunately full) Baby Buffet where parents and babies starting solids get to learn about food for infants and get to try a few yummy morsels too. The Parenting Emporium is located at 29 1st St., New Manila, Quezon City. For inquiries and registration, call 0917-811-0821.  


    Watch a movie

     
    From DreamWorks Animation, The Boss Baby is told from the wildly imaginative perspective of seven-year-old Tim Templeton (Miles Bakshi).  Tim has the perfect life, enjoying his daily rituals and all of his parents’ attention, until one day a new baby brother (Alec Baldwin) arrives – in a taxi, wearing a suit.  Like all new babies, Tim’s brother takes over the house and quickly becomes “the boss.” Catch it in theaters this weekend! 


    Hunt for Easter eggs

    Have an egg-citing weekend at Okada Manila's Eggs-traordinary Easter. Be there on Sunday, April 16, for an egg hunt, story-telling, arts and crafts, balloon twisting, group games and a go at their bouncy castle! Ticket price is P1,000. 


    Join a chocolate festival

    Head over to Shangri-La Plaza in Mandaluyong City any day from April 16 to 23 because, guess what, they're having a chocolate festival! The Shang Chocolate Wonderland will be a fair of all things chocolate. Expect booths from local chocolatiers like Theo and Philo; activities from mall tenants like Candy Corner, Marks & Spencer and Rustan's Supermarket; and on opening day there will be a party with magicians, jugglers, dancers and even a grand chocolate fountain.
