PLAYTIME: THE SECRET TO RAISING HAPPY AND HEALTHY KIDS



My two kids (now both teens) studied and graduated from a non-traditional, progressive school, from first to sixth grade. There we learned about the importance of "unstructured play" in igniting children's curiosity and n turn, helping them excel.

As a mom, I let them play with pets, ask them to help me in gardening, get them involved in DIY weekend projects, and let them play in the dirt.  Oh yes, the playing (soccer practices) can become too DIRTY!










Unstructured play is an open-ended activity with no specific learning objectives. This category of play can range from playing with toys that can be used in various ways to an afternoon of digging in the garden. Materials with interesting textures, like sand, clay, soil or slime are often used.


A FEW TIPS TO GET YOU AND YOUR CHILD'S CREATIVITY FLOWING:


Did you know: texture play helps develop a child’s senses while engaging in outdoor activity can help boost kids’ immune system.


Get crafty! Cut up different textures such as rough sandpaper, fluffy fabric, crinkly foil and more. Create a matching game that will teach your child the different textures by writing down the words “rough”, “soft”, “smooth”, etc on a poster board. Ask your child to place the matching material beside the word.


Children who play outdoors often have better fitness levels, stronger bones, and improved social skills.


Set up an adventure hunt for your kids and their friends in your backyard or neighborhood. Let them look for tiny treasures: a rare coin, a cute sock, or a treasure chest full of goodies.


Spend a day in the sun. Whether it’s digging up the garden, creating a sand castle or running around in the park freely exploring the outdoors can help kids feel calmer and happier.  


MAKE WASHING (TAKING A BATH) FUN!

After all those playing, your kids can get dirty.

Encourage your children to frequently wash their hands with the Jiggly Bath Jelly. The jelly format makes it easy to scoop out or cut up in toddler-friendly chunks for easier handwashing.


It gently washes away the day’s dirt, grime, and sweat with the power of coconut cleansers that gently cleans skin and vegetable-derived glucose and glycerin that nourishes and moisturizes skin with every wash.




Human Nature 100% Natural Jiggly Bath Jelly is free from harmful chemicals like synthetic colorants, parabens, or sulfates that can pose health risks. An interesting TRIVIA: Jiggly Bath Jelly is kiddie-approved because Human Nature President and Co-Founder Anna Meloto Wilk's daughter helped make this product what it is now! Awesome right?

MRSWISE, A PROUD PARTNER BLOGGER OF RAWR AWARDS 2018



A few years back, December 2015 to be exact, I was commissioned to write for the very first RAWR Awards held at the Meralco Theatre. It was a special night as movie, TV stars, media personalities and fans of LionHearTV.net came together to celebrate the website's 7th anniversary. 

Fast forward to 2018 -- and guess what.  I am attending this year's RAWR Awards not as the event's writer anymore, but a proud partner blogger of the event. Yey!  This is so exciting!  To see the logo of my humble blog on the official poster is simply awesome!

MEGA HAPPINESS FOR MRS.WISE AT THE MEGA BARKADA LAUNCH



This is only the second time that I have been invited by this well loved Filipino brand - Mega Global -- makers of Mega tuna, sardines, and prime products.  For both events, I went home MEGA happy!  Last year, I was declared as the online winner for Mega Prime Cook-off Challenge.  And this year, I was the grand prize winner in their #MegaBarkada media launch -- where I went home with an overnight GC for 6 for a much awaited glamping experience.




MEGA TUNA WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY!


But these are not the only reasons why I am MEGA happy with this brand. I learned from their recent event, that their tuna brand is something that they are truly proud of. Aside from the fact that it is proudly Filipino made, it is made with 100% pure tuna, with no extenders.  Which is a very important factor to consider for moms like me in choosing what's healthy for the family.





MEGA BARKADA, THE NEWEST BRAND AMBASSADORS OF MEGA TUNA

Youthful, dynamic, and brimming with fresh ideas, the Mega Barkada are the newest brand ambassadors of Mega Tuna, the country’s most exciting tuna brand. Made up of Deegee Razon, Ronan Domingo, Melissa Gohing, and Baninay Bautista, the MegaBarkada goes through life with a spirit of adventure and fun, exploring new things and learning from each other, while always staying true to themselves.



To bring their brand of fun and authenticity to more Filipinos, the Mega Barkada will be launching two webisodes, especially made to delight audiences across and beyond the country.

Thanks to their partnership with Mega Global, the MegaBarkada says they have become better consumers. Speaking for the group, Baninay says:  “Mega has taught us what being authentic is all about. Our togetherness has made us appreciate each other, at parati kaming tunay sa isa’t isa. Ganun din pagdating sa Mega Tuna. I now know that pag pure ang ingredients at walang halong fake, you won’t go wrong with its quality and taste.
Indeed, with Mega Tuna, you can live life fully without worrying about what you eat. And with 100% tuna, you’ll be sure to only have 100% pure experiences.
Mega Tuna comes in four variants, namely, Mega Tuna Flakes in Oil, Hot and Spicy, Sweet and Spicy, and Spanish-Style. All variants are available in supermarkets nationwide.
