  • Though we’re confined in our homes because of the enhanced community quarantine, moms and dads still prove that they’re aces when it comes to entertaining their kids. From DIY toys, opening a home quarantine store, planning movie nights, and more, parents will do anything to keep their kids happy (and preoccupied while the adults are working from home!).

    One of their no-fail ways to keep the kids busy? Let them swim! We’re sure you’ve been feeling the heat — according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), temperatures and heat indices in Metro Manila will continue throughout May 2020 or before the start the rainy season — so letting the kids do water play can help cool them down. Not to mention, it's the perfect brain-boosting activity!
