MOMS ALERT: 5 Creative Ways to Make After-School Activities More Fun

Kids spend most of their weekdays in school. From classes to extracurricular activities, they deserve a fun treat when they get home, especially after a long day. This is the perfect opportunity for parents to get creative with after-school activities as a reward for kids doing an awesome job in their classes and finishing their assignments on time.

If you need ideas to make your kids’ after-school routine more fun and rewarding, here are some suggestions:

#1 Get crafty and make a calming jar

A calming jar is a sensory item that can help relax anyone that shakes it. You can easily make this with your kids by pouring glitters, hand soap, and watercolor in a clear jar – then mix! This will create a shimmery mixture that can be compared to a snow globe when shaken. This is a great artsy activity that you can do in just a few minutes.

#2 Sing your heart out

Music can uplift anyone’s mood. Once your kids are done with their homework, you can play their favorite songs on Spotify or put on lyric videos on YouTube to have a videoke party in your sala as a treat to them. To make it more fun and exciting, dress up as your favorite singers, so you’ll really feel like you’re in their shoes. Dancing is also highly encouraged!

#3 Get active and create new games at the park

Nothing beats park dates after school. Take your kids to a nearby park where you can spend time at the playground before going home. You can also organize a scavenger hunt but with a twist where kids are challenged to find as many items in different colors as they can. And by the end of a timer, the one with the most number of items wins. This can help kids de-stress and feel recharged before they start on their assignments and go back to school the next day.

#4 Whip up a fun, yummy drink

Chocolate is always a great reward after a long day or week in school. An easy recipe that you and your kids can do at home is the Funtasy Mallows Fudge Freeze, a colorful shake made with Swiss Miss Funtasy Mallows. The product is made with premium chocolate and real milk, topped with colorful marshmallows. Turn the day around and level up the fun with this snack time drink.

Here’s what you need to make a Funtasy Mallows Fudge Freeze:

INGREDIENTS (Good for two servings)

● 2 packs Swiss Miss Funtasy Mallows
● ½ cup water
● 2 cups vanilla Ice cream
● 1 cup ice
● Marshmallows
● Whipped cream (optional)


● Dissolve 2 Swiss Miss Funtasy Mallows in ½ cup water
● Add 2 cups ice cream, 1 cup ice, and Swiss Miss Funtasy Mallows mixture in a blender
● Add marshmallows in a glass
● Pour Funtasy Mallow Fudge Freeze mixture in glass
● Add toppings

#5 Indoor movie nights made fun

Watching a movie together at home is a great bonding activity for the whole family. Decorate your sala with fairy lights and movie posters to add more ambiance for the best indoor movie experience. Get your snacks and Funtasy Mallow Fudge Freeze, and get cozy on the couch while enjoying your chosen flick. This is a fun way to reward your kids with an exciting viewing experience after school days.

These after-school activities are a great way to let your kids have fun before another school day, and also appreciated for their hard work. Your kids will certainly appreciate every treat that you give them.

Make them more special with a delicious drink made with Swiss Miss Funtasy Mallows, like the Funtasy Mallows Fudge Freeze. This will surely add a creative and refreshing spin to rewards.

Kirby Lee, Co-CEO of Transparent Arts says, “We've gotten great feedback from everyone about the new production for the Dawn to Dusk Tour. We are happy that we finally have a stage set up that matches the awesome performance energy from The Rose. We can't wait for the rest of the world to see it.”

The artist pre-sale will be available on their fan-driven app, The Rosarium, beginning on Friday, December 7 th at 11am local time ahead of the general on-sale kicking off at 11am local time on Tuesday, December 11 th via Ticketnet.

The Korean Alt Pop band is composed of four members: vocalist and guitarist Woosung, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Dojoon, bassist Jaehyeong, and drummer Hajoon. Renowned since their inception for electrifying performances, The Rose quickly became one of Korea's most sought-after groups delivering a series of critically acclaimed albums that resonated with fans worldwide. In 2019, three of the band members temporarily went on hiatus to fulfill their mandatory military service obligations, during which Woosung pursued a successful solo career, releasing captivating albums and embarking on sold-out world tours.

In a moment of sheer joy for their devoted fans, The Rose reunited during one of Woosung's performances in South Korea in 2022. This reunion paved the way for their first full-length album HEAL, which was inspired by the transformative power of music and the stories shared by both their fans and themselves. HEAL soared to #4 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart, while their accompanying HEAL Together World Tour drew an overwhelming crowd of over 90,000 attendees. Now, with their sophomore full-length album DUAL which made the Mediabase 200 chart in its first week of sales, The Rose takes their music to new heights with Rolling Stone UK calling it “an album that takes you on a layered, emotional journey, full of elation, heartache and twists and turns - just like life itself.” Building upon the emotional honesty and vulnerability showcased in HEAL, this latest offering explores the profound concept of 'balance.' Seamlessly merging light and dark elements, The Rose masterfully weaves emotions and sounds, capturing the dualistic essence that defines their music.

HONOR on the Rise: Is it Far Ahead of Other Brands?

The leading global smart devices provider HONOR is asserting its presence with the introduction of the HONOR 100 Series, positioning itself as a formidable contender against its competitors in terms of specifications and features. Recently, HONOR's Chief Executive Officer, George Zhao Ming, disclosed the company's objective to penetrate the European market and disrupt technology monopoly, aiming to catalyze industry-wide transformation and innovation.

Twenty years ago, who would have imagined that the iPhone could surpass Nokia? We should not shy away from challenging the powerful iPhone. Success requires the presence of challengers and a belief in our own potential,” said HONOR CEO George Zhao Ming.

HONOR ignited its 100 series with two phone models – HONOR 100 pioneered Snapdragon 7 Generation 3 phone, and HONOR 100 Pro, one of the earliest models to upgrade over MagicOS 8.0.

The HONOR 100 Series serves as the revolutionary successor of the previous HONOR 70 and HONOR 90 series. As such, enthusiasts and dedicated followers of the brand can anticipate a continuation of the high standards and innovative features set by its predecessors.

Warner Bros. to Release the Mentorque Productions MMFF Horror Movie "MALLARI" Starring Piolo Pascual

Mentorque Productions, the producer of Piolo Pascual starrer Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2023 movie entry "Mallari," has sealed a major deal with Warner Bros. Pictures for the theatrical distribution of the said horror movie.

The partnership was announced in a contract signing ceremony between Mentorque Productions president John Bryan Diamante and Warner Bros. Philippines distribution director Rico Gonzales last November 25, 2023 at the Chairman’s Lounge in Okada Manila as witnessed by Piolo, director Derick Cabrido, screenwriter Enrico Santos, and select member of entertainment press.

Both Diamante and Gonzales acknowledged that their latest collaboration for “Mallari” is going to be significant, not just for the movie itself, but for the entire Philippine film industry as well. They expressed optimism towards exploring even bigger opportunities to work in the future.

We didn’t actually look for it. It just happened. The stars aligned and, on my part, I guess some things are meant to happen. Because the partnership of Mentorque and Warner Bros. seemed to have opened a Pandora’s Box of a lot of possibilities. We’re really dedicated to bringing out and making quality Filipino films. Moving forward, my ultimate goal is hopefully a co-production,” Diamante said.

"Mallari" is based on the story of Fr. Juan Severino Mallari, a parish priest based in Magalang, Pampanga, who confessed to the murders of 57 individuals between 1816 and 1826. The crimes led to his execution and made him the first documented serial killer in Philippine history.

This is Piolo's first horror film. When asked why he decided to accept the role, he said: "As an actor, it is your job to always push yourself, to always do something different, and for my growth, as well, for my evolution. I wanna be able to give myself that challenge and become better. Hindi naman puwede magsettle sa mga dating roles. This time sa mga streaming platforms mas broad na yung mga roles na puwede mong tanggapin, mas madali ng mag-diversify nowadays and I think I'm just passionate about my job kaya open ako sa kahit na anong role ang i-offer."

The film also stars JC Santos, Janella Salvador, Elisse Joson, and Gloria Diaz with the special participation of Mylene Dizon.

The film is written by Enrico Santos, directed by Derick Cabrido and produced by Mentorque Productions and line produced by Cleverminds, Inc.

The film had a very successful Mediacon and Fancon last December 1, 2023 where some members of the press, thousands of fans and supporters gathered at the Cinema 5 of SM Mall Of Asia and The Music Hall to join the cast performances, fun, games, and photo opportunities.

Catch "Mallari" in theaters nationwide beginning December 25 as part of the MMFF 2023.
