Fun First Time Experiences For Kids

Parents are always looking for new experiences for their children to help their children grow and develop their imaginations. It is fun to take your child to an amusement park or a playground, but there are several other first time experiences your kids would enjoy that would make a lifelong impact.

A Retreat Into The Woods

For young children, a camping trip in tents that takes place in the deep woods may be a little too intense. But you can look for log cabins for rent to give your child a first time camping experience they will never forget. A log cabin offers many of the comforts of home that will not have your child apprehensive about the great outdoors. Your child will get the chance to experience nature close-up, and explore a bit of the world outside of your hometown.

A Wild West Town

A child enjoys using their imagination to create a world of their own. If you want to spur your child’s imagination, then get them to a Wild West town to experience something right out of a movie. There are several functioning Wild West towns throughout the United States that offer a real-life experience for your child. It will be a family vacation that your child will talk about for years.

A Drive On The Open Road

The idea of a Sunday drive has been a punchline for many years, but it can also be a great way for your child to experience something new. All it takes to amaze a child is to show them something they have never seen before and if your child has never seen wide open spaces and the big blue sky, then a Sunday drive with the family could be just the thing to get that imagination going.

Out + About In Art In Island With Jolly Cow

Warning: This is a picture-heavy post!

Traveling is something I absolutely enjoy doing with my family. Although out-of-town trips may be a bit tricky to pull off with the little one going to regular school now or due to limited budget, we do not really need to go that far to check out a place we have never been before and tick those destinations off our bucket list. This year, I am happy to note that we have been to a few new attractions for children, including Art In Island in Quezon City.

Art In Island is an art museum located at 175 15th Ave., Brgy. Socorro, Cubao, Quezon City. It is open from Tuesdays – Sundays at 9.30am-9.30pm. Admission fee is at Php500 for adults and Php 400 for students while children below 3 feet can enter for free. As of writing, it is closed for renovation, but patrons can check out their holiday-themed 3D painting exhibit at SM Megamall.

Jolly Cow’s Mom + Kid’s Day Out

Jolly Cow invited select mum bloggers and kids to join them for their Mom and Kids Day Out event and the first stop of our adventure is Art In Island near Cubao Expo. We have not been there before so I was more than happy to go and tag the little man along.

Halloween is one of the most opportune time to play dress up and make lasting memories with our children.
