If you are looking for some family bonding activities this Independence Day weekend, here are some of the events I found online. This coming long weekend will officially close the kids' summer vacation so let's try to make this a memorable and meaningful one for them. Let's do this! Game! 

1) Tahanan Books at Museo Pambata ( June 10, Saturday, 2PM) 

"Celebrate the Independence weekend with us at Museo Pambata! Bring your favorite pair of scissors and we'll see everyone at 2pm this Saturday, June 10 for an hour of learning about the old Manila and a chance to cut and build your own piece of Intramuros."
*Museo Pambata entrance fee is P250. Bring a print out of their weekend coupon to pay at a discount. Joining our activity inside the museum is free. :)

 Download and print Museo Pambata's weekend coupon to avail of the discount. 

I am excited to see the participants' different versions of Intramuros and how they are going to create their masterpieces. You can drop by Rizal Park before or after this event to complete your Araw ng Kalayaan Lakbay Aral. Ilang hakbang lang mula sa Museo Pambata ay Rizal Park na!

3. Adarna House : Paglulunsad Seryeng Bayani at Aklat ng Salin (June 12, Gateway Gallery, 230 PM)

mula sa kanilang Facebook Event Page 

Kasama ng Gateway Gallery, inaanyayahan namin kayo sa paglulunsad ng Aklat ng Salin at Seryeng Bayani sa 12 Hunyo 2017, 2:30NH sa Gateway Gallery (5/F Gateway Tower, Araneta Center, Cubao). Magsasalita tungkol sa mga libro ang makata at musikerong si Lourd De Veyra. 

Binubuo ang Aklat ng Salin ng mga pilîng aklat pambatà mula sa ibáng bayan na nagsasalaysay ng mga karanasang lalo pang makapagpapayaman sa balon ng sensibilidad at kaalaman ng mga batàng Filipino. Maglulunsad ng dalawang aklat: "Ito ang Diktadura" at "Mga Uring Panlipunan," salin ng mga librong Espanyol mula sa koleksiyong pinamagatang "Mga Libro Para sa Kinabukasan."

Nilikha naman ang Seryeng Bayani upang ipakilala sa mga batang mambabasa ang kadakilaan ng mga bayaning Filipino. Tatlong aklat ang ilulunsad sa seryeng ito:

• Ang Kaibigan Kong si Mabini (Becky Bravo & Aaron Aasis)
• Ang Lakambini at Ako (Becky Bravo & Joza Nada)
• Ang Maraming Ngalan ni Emilio (Weng Cahiles & Aldy Aguirre)

Libre at bukás sa publiko ang paglulunsad. Makipag-ugnay at magparating ng pagdalo sa amin: • +632 3526765 local 120 • +63 915 5271105.

Pinaka-excited ako sa aklat na "Ito Ang Diktadura". Gusto kong malaman kung paano namin ito magagamit para mas madaling maunawaan ni Rio ang mga konsepto ng kalayaan. Sakto pa at idineklara ang Martial Law sa Mindanao. 

Excited din ako dahil mas murang mabibili ang mga aklat sa araw ng paglulunsad. Limang aklat para sa halagang P500! 

4. National Day for Prayer and Action for Peace and Human Rights (June 12, Bonifacio Shrine, 4PM) 

Excerpts from the event's Facebook page: 
On June 12, Independence Day, we, concerned Filipinos from various faiths, sectors and political affiliations, will come together in a day of prayer and action to renew the call for peace and respect for human rights amidst the rising tide of terrorism, martial rule and impunity that threatens to rip the nation apart.

We extend our solidarity to the victims of the Marawi siege. We condemn the deliberate acts of terror by the ISIS-inspired Maute and Abu Sayyaf groups. We call on all people to come to the aid of thousands of internally displaced persons in Lanao del Sur and nearby areas.

Likewise, we gather to show our opposition to martial law in Mindanao and possibly other parts of the country. We call for an end to the aerial bombardment of Marawi and other conflict areas.

We shall continue to pursue various paths to peace based on justice and the full respect for human rights. It is our hope and prayer that President Duterte and all government officials can still listen and change.

This event will be a meaningful culmination of our Independence Day weekend. We will join hands with our kababayans to pray and act for peace and human rights. I think this is one way of showing our kids the meaning of collectively pursuing an advocacy and serving the people. Kitakits! 

Nanays, if you know of other events that we can join this Independence Day weekend, please share it here in our online tambayan. Mas maraming choices, mas masaya! 

Enjoy the last few days of the summer vacation!
