Peek at the Week | September 22-28

september activities Manila For Kids

It will be a crafty last week of September, people! How about a pottery class together with your child, or would the kids rather learn Baybayin, the traditional form of writing? I am also very pleased to share a clay workshop for children with autism. Older kids might enjoy an illustration masterclass, woodcarving or how about basic screenwriting for the film enthusiasts?  There are two events with cats and kittens for the animal lovers, or would you rather learn all about making sushi? Why not go to the theatre, and see Pinocchio, the musical where the actors are all kids! Have a fabulous week everyone! Let us know when you have tried our tips 🙂


WORKSHOP | Screenwriting Masterclass
