Easter Barnyard 2017 Experience at Resorts World Manila

Easter has become a fun and spectacular celebration for kids, especially with malls around the metro that host Easter Egg Hunts, costume contests, and magic shows. Easter Sunday can easily become a busy day for mommies looking for the best venue and activity for kids to enjoy the Easter celebration.

We chose Resorts World Manila’s Easter Barnyard Adventure as it is the most visible and talked about online. I even shared the poster to my excitement and to let even more mommies know! Come Easter Sunday which was a partly cloudy day, it was tempting to stay at home but the new Skyway also known as NAIA Ex makes going to Resorts World Manila such a breeze. Buti nalang at hindi kami tinamad!

Kids Easter Celebration at Resorts World Manila

This review might be helpful in deciding where to spend your Easter Sunday in 2018. Newport Mall in Resorts World Manila is a top choice for Filipino families as a lifestyle and leisure destination. The shops are family friendly with mid-range restaurants, even fast food options. There’s always something going on at the Activity Hall for everyone to watch & enjoy especially on weekends.

It pays to read the mechanics before going on this Easter Adventure, I downloaded the Resorts World app first and showed a P2,500 receipt. We ate at Annam Noodle Bar and bought takeaway to reach the purchase requirement. We presented it at the booth and got a ticket to enjoy the Easter Barnyard Adventure!

Super sulit with the many booths that you can claim goodies from. Parent and child are both given activity cards with different stubs attached. The kids enjoyed free snacks like Tender Juicy Hotdog, Gardenia bread, Country Style donut, Eggnog snacks, and the most popular that day was the giant cotton candy!

There was a small skit and singing and dancing followed by a mysterious and enthralling magic show. There were also fun games in between.

Activity booths like cookie decorating (sadly McCormick ran out of cookies for us to decorate) and face painting were also available.

I noticed how Resorts World also quietly included kids from charitable organizations and treated them like royalty during the event. Good job Resorts World! They had the best seat in the house and I’m sure these kids enjoyed the event as much as my son did, maybe even more :)

Overall we made the right decision to celebrate Easter Sunday at Resorts World. Everything was organized, safe, and secure that it was also fun for mommies like me.

Like and stay tuned on Resorts World Manila Facebook Page, this is where I get to know what’s up for families and kids such as free activities like this. You can also download the Resorts World Manila mobile app.

Happy Easter Mommy and Baby!

Ayala Mall Serin Tagaytay: Kids Easter

https://scontent-sea.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfp1/v/t1.0-9/10360258_10152880681078915_1883641085673445511_n.jpg?oh=dae06b3648763bfeb1685f31482d8193&oe=55E466D6
We stayed in Tagaytay for the Holy Week and we were surprised to see Ayala Mall Serin already open. This is just right beside Lourdes Church and resembles The District malls, only this one is bigger and better. I always appreciate Ayala’s way of incorporating nature into their developments, the vibe is relaxed, spacious and family friendly with lots of benches to sit on for tired shoppers.

Last Sunday, we took advantage of their free Easter activity for kids. We arrived early 11am to register.

Ashton got a free Easter cookie which he ate while waiting for the event to start.

Kids can choose from decorating their own easter basket, bunny ears, and Easter plasters that turn into fridge magnets.

Ashton chose the basket option. The venue got crowded with kids quickly, I bet a lot of parents skipped the registration! Ashton and I settled on one of the higher tables to finish his basket.

Then free twisty balloons for everyone! Ashton got a puppy shaped balloon. The activity ends there, not bad for a free activity. There’s face painting at 2pm but Ashton doesn’t want anything on his face.

For lunch we tried Hermana for the first time. Lucky us the resto gives Easter eggs to kiddie patrons, Ashton got a colorful egg. At last his basket is no longer empty.

Enjoyed their calamansi juice, sinigang, and gising-gising. Hermana was also playing family friendly movies like Night of the Museum Part 3 which kept our mini family entertained while eating.

All in all we had a great Easter at Ayala Mall Serin, after lunch we walked to Lourdes Church for the Easter mass and even got to witness an Easter baptism :)

Jumping to Easter: Where to Hunt Eggs?

UPDATE:  Had to cancel my booking because Manila Peninsula was not replying on my queries about their Easter program for the kids. I asked if adults can accompany toddlers and they initially said no, asked again and said they will check and I haven’t heard from them again after 48 hours.  *bugs me*

I’ve learned well enough to prepare for important kiddie events and in advance. Upcoming is this year’s Easter Sunday and I am sure I am not the only mom who’ve started scouring the interwebs for a nice place to celebrate and hunt those eggs. I’ve also learned that in occasions like these, hotels are my best friends – not crowded, stress-free, and a treat for both me and Ashton.

Lucky me that The Peninsula Manila announced their Easter promo early – it bugs me why their competitors have not released any offers yet. Especially their Easter Egg Hunt for the kids?  Anyway, I’ve secured a booking for April 7-8. On the 8th which is Easter Sunday, they have an event at the Rigodon Ballroom for kids – you guessed it! I hope Ashton enjoys finding his eggs haha :) In the meantime, this is also a good chance to cool down this summer, take a dip on the pool, and blast the AC as cold as you like if you have one of those electric blankets :)If I were not as tied up, I would have wanted to go to the beach – but that could prove stressful especially when traveling with a toddler.

I feel good that I’m hitting two birds with one stone – Ashton gets to enjoy an Easter party with other kids and busy mommy gets some R&R :)
