We spent our Saturday afternoon hopping from one shop to another at the Junior Preneur {} bazaar held at the People’s Village in Tiendesitas two Saturdays ago. I did mention this event in a previous post. What sets this bazaar apart from all the other bazaars we’ve visited before? You will see mini entrepreneur + little business tycoons in the making manning their shops, arranging their wares on their respective booths and peddling their products to bazaar goers. It is a bazaar full of fledgling businessmen and women who will be at the forefront of our business industries in the future. To say that the little man and I had a wonderful and different experience is such an understatement!

Firstly, we enjoyed browsing through shops upon shops of clothes, books, toys, Christmas decors, paper products and other wares. I bought a pair of this cute Frogger scissors for the little man from the Crayola booth. I also got this crafty motorcycle photo frame after the little man talk me to it. And look, we even got this cute photoshopped photo as a freebie! 😉

Food and refreshments were also available for the bazaar patrons and delicious items like waffles, mini cakes, candies, as well as chocolates and cotton candies were on sale, too. You can also find food for lunch and beverages from a bevy of shops in the bazaar.

But what seemed to be the little man’s favorite will have to be the Zoomanity Group’s booth. Zoomanity is the group behind popular attractions like Zoobic Safari and Zoocobia. In fact, they brought along a pair of animals from Subic, including this colorful parrot, an owl and this very lovable dog! They even tagged along 2 of their colorful mascots, and they, along with the pair of parrot, gave quite a splendid performance that all the tykes enjoyed. Jared had a grand time petting and holding the parrot, too! And the photos say it all. You can check out more of our photos here 😉

It was the first time we visited the People’s Village and Tiendesitas and I must say it was an afternoon well spent and I won’t hesitate to tag along the little man for next year’s Junior Preneur {}. 😉

Junior Preneur: inspiring your little businessman

educational activities for children, children learning, children, events, Junior Preneur
It is never too early to teach our little ones about the concept of money and saving, as well as nurturing their minute entrepreneurial spirits. In fact, the earlier we introduce the concept, the easier it is for them to understand and appreciate these things. That is why, if you are a mum to gradeschoolers or pre-teens, I highly recommend you visit the Junior Preneur event this coming Saturday!

Junior Preneur in a nutshell

Nothing will inspire your budding entrepreneur than to spend an afternoon with children of like mind, participating in the biggest kids’ bazaar . And if you are so inclined, you can get a booth for P1,500 – 5,000 {depending on your choice of size and location}, and  your little one, and the entire family, can do a selling activity for one whole day.
Not only that you can give your children their very first experience at earning, it is also a perfect opportunity to introduce to them the concept of saving and open their very own bank account, if you haven’t already. A whole lot of other activities are also in store for you and your little business tycoons. Shop for great bargains, let your little ones join in contests and games to win exciting prizes, as well as watch an animal show! Apart from that, you can also teach your children all about charity and compassion as they meet less fortunate children from Cribs and Tahanan Sta. Lusia.
