The schedule: swimming classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, soccer camp on Tuesdays and Thursdays, painting every Friday, and reading workshops every day. Summer activities can drain your bank account faster than a regular school year. Here are some ideas for pure fun in the sun to fit any budget!
If you have P100...
Have a wild time!Going to the zoo is an inexpensive trip that is both educational and entertaining for children of all ages. Go to the Manila Zoo and treat your child to a morning filled with elephants, ostriches, zebras, and horses. Bring along a small book about animals to further acquaint your child with the creatures he sees. Interesting tidbits, such as monkeys’ habit of peeling bananas before eating them, will help your child retain more information.
Zoo hours: 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Admission fees*: P40/adult, P20/child
Address: Adriatico Street, Manila City
Telephone: (02) 525-8157
A good alternative to Manila Zoo is Ark Avilon. Aside from seeing orangutans, jaguars, and tortoises up close, there is also a feeding station young children will truly delight in.
