International Day of Families

Another item from Jollibee Kids Workshop worthy of sharing.

Read on :

The International Day of Families is observed on the 15th of May every year. The International Day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and increase the knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting families.
The International Day of Families has inspired a series of awareness-raising events, including national family days. In many countries, that day provides an opportunity to highlight different areas of interest and importance to families. Activities include workshops and conferences, radio and television programmes, newspaper articles and cultural programmes highlighting relevant themes.

5 Affordable Family Activities
According to Demand Media, Inc. 
1) Planting a Garden. Planting a garden together can be exciting and yield some wonderful food to eat.
2) Camping. You don't even have to leave your backyard to camp under the stars. Purchase an inexpensive tent, put it up in your yard and have a sleep-out.
3)Amusement Parks. Roller coasters and cotton candy bring out the kid in all of us. Spending the day at an amusement park can be exhilarating and inexpensive.

4) Family Game Night. Board games can bring a family together and teach invaluable skills to your children.
5) Trip to the Zoo. A zoo can help your children learn about and appreciate the animal kingdom.
