SUMMER ACTIVITIES

Summertime, kids, and picnics are meant to go together. Having a picnic doesn’t have to be reserved
for a day out at the beach or park. Kids love to eat outside, especially if it means they
don’t have to stop playing to come inside and get cleaned up.

A Family Time Capsule

Preserve the memories of your children’s youth while making a fun keepsake. At the
beginning of the summer choose and decorate a container to store all the mementos you
will collect to put inside a time capsule. When choosing a container, it should be air
tight, water tight and sturdy.

After a container has been chosen the next step is to decide how long it will be sealed for.
The longer the better, but be warned young children may want to open it up the day after
it is put away! The best thing to do is put it in a place that they don’t know about or
cannot access. A good time frame is 5-10 years.

Sit down with the children and explain to them that you want to preserve the memories
that they are going to make that summer and brainstorm some of the things that can go
into it. Some ideas are:

* Photographs (get some photo-safe envelopes to store them in for protection)
* Crafts
* Toys
* Awards won
* Letters
* If you include any DVD’s or other types of media you may want to consider how
they will be used in the future – it is possible they may be obsolete if you are
storing your time capsule for 10 years or more into the future.

If you are going to store your time capsule for years and years make sure you leave
yourself some form of reminder to take the time capsule with you if you move (especially
if you have decided to bury it in the backyard).

Keep the items in the time capsule personal and meaningful to your family. You can
always check a history book or newspaper archive to find out about the news of the day –
unless of course your family was in the news.

 

The Climate of the Philippines is either tropical rainforest, tropical savanna or tropical monsoon, or humid subtropical (in higher-altitude areas) characterized by relatively high temperature, oppressive humidity and plenty of rainfall. There are two seasons in the country, the wet season and the dry season, based upon the amount of rainfall. This is dependent as well on your location in the country as some areas experience rain all throughout the year.

Based on temperature, the seven warmest months of the year are:
- from March to October; the winter monsoon brings cooler air
- from November to February
- May is the warmest month
- January, the coolest

Climate types
There are four recognized climate types in the Philippines, and they are based on the distribution of rainfall (See the Philippine Climate Map). They are described as follows:

Type I. Two pronounced season: dry from November to April and wet during the rest of the year.
Type II. No dry season with a pronounced rainfall from November to January.
Type III. Seasons are not very pronounced, relatively dry from November to April, and wet during the rest of the year.
Type IV. Rainfall is more or less evenly distributed throughout the year.

Humidity
Relative humidity is high in the Philippines. A high amount of moisture or vapor in the air makes hot temperatures feel hotter. This quantity of moisture is due to different factors - the extraordinary evaporation from the seas that surrounds the country on all sides, to the different prevailing winds in the different seasons of the year, and finally, to the abundant rains so common in a tropical country. The first may be considered as general causes of the great humidity, which is generally observed in all the islands throughout the year. The last two may influence the different degree of humidity for the different months of the year and for the different regions of the Archipelago.



Bird Feeders

Kids are naturally attracted to animals and will love the birds that come to eat off of their homemade bird feeders. The following instructions are for a very simple bird feeder that can be made again and again. Once you put out food for birds and they start coming on a regular basis you should continue to feed them as they are rely on the feeders as a food source. Bird Feeders
