Last Sunday, the little man and I went to Trinoma to participate at the Progress Pre-School Gold and National Geographic Channel’s Kids M.I. Expedition. We went there early to avoid the long queue and so the little man can try out the activities as soon as he can. He was reluctant at first, but he had such an amazing time completing the activities while enhancing his #MultipleIntelligence.

our Kids M.I. Expedition Pass

We needed to register before we were allowed to enter the activity area. I also signed a waiver. After registration, we were given our Kids M.I. Expedition Pass, giving the little man access to 3 different activities enhancing his Body Smart, People Smart, and Brain Smart.

playing dominoes for the first time

While waiting for their turn, the children can play a number of educational games to pass the time. Jared excitedly proceeded to one of the tables and immediately played with dominoes.

Mums can also take a short quiz to determine their children’s domineering smart. It turns out, my little ball of unbound energy is Body Smart and I guess I am not surprised. I also found out that children who are Body Smart excel in sports, as well as in motor skills. It is safe to say then that I just might have an athlete in the making.

Jared queued up and waited for his turn to try the 3 different activities. There was a maze-like set-up where the children are to do these activities and Jared went to the People Smart area first when it was his turn. Here, he was to set up kid-sized playground equipment with a little girl and learn all about team work. He was given his People Smart medal as soon as they were done.

the little one getting instructions to finish the Brain Smart task. Sorry about the bad angle, I was tailing the little guy and failed to get a good shot.

For the Brain Smart bit, the little one is to answer 3 questions in one minute. Jared was not able to finish this part as he ran out of time, but he did manage to answer 2 questions, including this one with Tyrannosaurus as the answer, so I thought he still did a good job and told him so.

and climbing walls!

We then proceeded to the Body Smart section, where Jared was asked to do a bit of basketball, climb past this net wall of sorts, and jump on the trampoline to tap a photo hanging above, all in one minute. My little trooper did ace this series of activities and got another medal, the Body Smart one.

After finishing all the activities, we went to the Photo Booth to have our photos taken. After that, we proceeded to the Redemption Booth to get Jared’s gifts consisting of a Progress Pre-School Gold polo shirt, a Multiple Intelligence notebook, and this National Geographic Channel Dinosaur Excavation Kit, which the little man cannot wait to play.
