Virtual Tours to Visit and Explore as Part of Homeschooling Activities

One of the best things about internet and technology are the development of virtual tours. While virtual tours do not really give the same thrill like the real ones, it's the cheapest way to see the rest of the world. It's also our only option now that we are still in this pandemic. I have… Continue reading Virtual Tours to Visit and Explore as Part of Homeschooling Activities

This Pandemic Has Become My Second Childhood

For my kids' generation, learning a new skill is so much more accessible now than it was during my time. It's normal for kids now to learn a skill or two during summer break. Some of the families I know have daughters who learn ballet, sons who take up martial arts, some whose kids go… Continue reading This Pandemic Has Become My Second Childhood

The whole Metro Manila, Philippines, is still on lockdown due to COVID. It's hard to get supplies or get around because even public transportation is limited. So forgive me, my dear readerships, if I am resorting to art rather than science lately to distract me from the stressful situation we are in right now.

How I Upcycled My Old Eye Makeup Palette Into A Travel-Size Watercolor Palette (With Full Demo Video)

Dabbling in art, particularly watercolor, can be expensive. I admit, I had to save some moolah in order to afford the brushes and artist grade watercolors that I am currently using now.

My Four Favorite Fitness Channels on YouTube for Indoor Workouts

I think most of us, if not all, will agree that the year 2020 was a disaster. The pandemic has turned the malls into ghost towns, resulted to cancelled travel plans, millions of deaths globally, and job losses. I would be lying if I say that the community quarantines did not take a toll on… Continue reading My Four Favorite Fitness Channels on YouTube for Indoor Workouts

My Top Art Teaching Hacks for Non-Artist Homeschooling Parents

A quote by Vincent van Gogh on nature, art, and poetry. While art isn't a major subject in regular school, it's a subject that my kids showed tremendous interest in since they were younger.
