    Looking for learn-at-home options and wondering about tuition fee? Head to Smart Parenting Classroom now!

    It will be four months of quarantine next week, and if no one has told you yet, good job, moms and dads, on managing to get your family through this most trying and exhausting time!

    It has undoubtedly made you creative in coming up with solutions to keep your children entertained while fostering their development at the same time. At this point, you’re just trying to find the right balance between fun and learning. So we recommend adding this to your learning arsenal during “recess”: a virtual tour of The Catsup Museum

    The word catsup alone is enough to pique the kids’ interest, and the best part is the whole family gets to appreciate the well-loved and uniquely Filipino banana catsup. Founded in 2017 by NutriAsia in partnership with The Mind Museum, The Catsup Museum promotes the Filipino virtues of ingenuity, resourcefulness, and hard work, all of which go into each bottle of banana catsup.

    This July, The Catsup Museum goes online, hosting a virtual tour and an interactive module to provide learning resources for kids of all ages. The virtual tour will take viewers around the museum’s interactive exhibits while giving in-depth commentary and even mini-quizzes per area.

    The Catsup Museum virtual tour starts off at the Hall of the Natural History of Banana.

    Here, parents and their kids can learn more about the condiment’s main ingredient (banana!) including where it was first planted, its life stages, and its nutrients.
