Looking for a place to get the kids to burn off energy this weekend while you learn how to channel that energy further? Bring the whole family to SmartKids Asia Philippines, an annual educational kids’ fair and family event that gets kids to explore their abilities and talents as well as a fun opportunity for the entire family to spend some quality time with one another.
The edutainment extravaganza will be held on January 26 to 27, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m, at Halls 1 and 2 of the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
What to expect
We recommend getting there early because SmartKids will feature a dynamic circus act when it opens its doors, AND the first 100 kids to enter the event will be given exclusive freebies! Kids love costumes? Good! Dress them up as an archer because premium indoor archery range Archery 1O1, a co-presenter of the event, will hold a Best Archer Costume contest. Kids 12 years old and below can join the contest and register before the event. Click here for the full mechanics of the contest.
After the opening ceremony, the fun and games instantly start as Diwa Learning Systems (Diwa) hosts its "Pasiklaban sa Paaralan National Finals," the first and only ICT-integrated traveling quiz show in the country.
Brand partner Tempra will take the stage in the afternoon along with the Team Kramer family for games and fun activities.
This year’s SmartKids Asia Philippines will feature an even more diverse array of events, ranging from classes and workshops to stage performances to fun contests — providing kids the opportunity to try their hand in different fields like music, art, sports, and even cooking.
