Cupcake Decorating for Kids
in cooperation with BACNOBA
What we like about The District North Point Mall in Talisay is that they always hold worthwhile activities for kids at the mall. And this is especially helpful for homeschooling families like us. A couple of weeks ago, we went there for their weekend Kids’ Bazaar where there are sellers who displayed an assortment of clothes, toys, educational materials, and accessories for kids. It is a great time to shop for Christmas gifts and changes of wardrobes for your kids because of the bargain prices and the assortment of unique finds.
But aside from the bazaar, which will continue every weekend till November, there are other activities that change every week. On the weekend that we came, there was an interactive storytelling activity by The Activity and Play Lounge and then the Cupcake Decorating for Kids that was held in cooperation with the Bacolod-Negros Occidental Bakers Association (BACNOBA), which was one of the organization’s activities in celebration of the World Bread Day 2015.
About 50 pre-registered kids joined the event. They were provided with four cupcakes each as well as different colored frosting and candy toppings so that they can make different designs. They were able to make Elmo, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, and flower designs. But of course, they were guided into doing by a host on stage who gave directions step by step. The BACNOBA officers also went around helping the kids out on what to do. So it was pretty organized and the kids were able to carry out all the assignments. It was a fun and learning activity and the kids really glowed with pride afterwards that they were able to accomplish what they did. They also got to take home the aprons and bakers’ hats that they wore for the activity. It was really cool and my daughter really enjoyed it!
We are really looking forward to more worthwhile activities for homeschooling in Bacolod kids at The District North Point. For homeschooling families like us, we rely on such special activities in our community that our kids can also take part of. Such activities will foster their creativity as well as socialization skills. Love them!
