  • Children do not have the longest attention span, which is why parents constantly struggle to find ways to make learning fun. Thankfully, this year's SmartKids Asia Philippines, Asia's largest educational kids' fair, brought together more than 30 exhibitors that showcased learning activities that are not only fun but are also incredibly engaging.

    So if you're struggling to teach your kids math, science, and even important life lessons, get them to try some of these activities:

    Teach kids the importance of discipline with archery

    Like numerous other sports, archery requires dedication and discipline. If you want your kids to learn about it the fun way, get them to take lessons at Archery 101.

    Storytelling sessions improve reading skills!

    Getting your kids to read can be difficult, especially in this day and age of gadgets and online videos — after all, why would they read when they can watch instead?

    Storytelling is an effective way to get them to pick up books instead of gadgets. Bringing them to The Reading Station (Facebook: TheReadingStation2001) can help, as they have fun ways to get your kids to open and read books.

    Nurture the imagination with Lego building 

    Want to raise a 'Master Builder'? Young Engineers would be more than willing to help. They have building block kits that will keep your kids busy and entertained for hours.

    Apart from these activities, the educational fair also showcased free Smart Trial Classes that tackled introduction to coding, cooking demos, financial wellness talks, and mental arithmetic discussions.

    Kids weren't the only ones who had fun at the recently concluded SmartKids Asia Philippines educational fair. Parents were also treated to exclusive classes at the Smart Classroom—from the importance of zinc in a child's diet, to the best ways to keep kids healthy and fit.

    Apart from workshops, classes, raffles, and fun games, there were also numerous performances and contests. Noynoy, one of the country's premier ventriloquists, even graced the stage with DG Goat Milk to surprise the audience with a quick show.

    SmartKids Asia Philippines was launched in 2014 with 76 exhibitors and only over 4,000 visitors. This year, the largest educational kids' fair brought together more than 14,000 participants and left everyone who attended wanting more.
