Summer Activities for Kids!

It’s now summer vacation in the Philippines. Some people spend it on vacations out of town or even out of the country. Others choose to have staycations. During this season, while adults are too busy working, the children tend to get bored in the house. I’m writing this article to give a list of summer activities that your kids might enjoy.

1. Sports

The lack of physical activities can make the children obese. Enrolling them to sports clinic like swimming, basketball, or volleyball can help them improve their physical abilities.

Besides the usual sports, you may also try to enroll them in some martial arts programs like karate or taekwondo.

2. Academics

If your child is an achiever, summer is a good time to do some advance lessons. On the other hand, if your child in underachiever, this is an opportunity to catch up some classes that your child missed.

Some children learn better when there is less students in the classroom. Other children learn better when the ratio of teacher to student is 1:1.

3. Language

Children who learn a language when they are very young have a better chance of not having a “foreign” accent when speaking another language. It also helps them accept the fact that multilingualism is normal in our world.

Isn’t it great to see your child learn a new language over the summer vacation? Learning another language is memorable and at the same time helpful.

4. Music

Engaging in music classes may boost children’s literacy. A study from Northwestern University showed that students who played instruments in class had more improved neural processing than the children who attended the music appreciation group.

Playing a musical instrument is important. Children can use the summer vacation to learn a musical instrument.


Since my little sister lives in the Philippines, I tried to search for a school that can address the programs I mentioned above. Fortunately, there’s a school in Cavite that offers these program. It’s called Jabez Christian School.

Their advertisement looks like this:

I enrolled my sister here, and she’s going to start on Monday. I’ll surely make an update how it goes.
