One thing I really like about Aki’s school is that they have weekly themes. The lessons revolve around the theme. At the end of the week, they have activities that tie everything up.
One of the themes last September was People in the Neighborhood. Parents were instructed to have the kids go to school wearing outfits of their dream jobs. The MMDA outfit was not ready by then so I had to come up with another one. As expected, most of Aki’s classmates came as doctors. Aki’s costume stood out because he came as a…
Words can not explain how proud I was when teachers, parents, classmates and yayas gathered around my boy as he shouted Tahooooooo!
I did not blog about this earlier because I planned to reuse the costume for Halloween. Aki was a magtataho again for our village party, which I learned is where the costume contest really happens. Aki did not win but the loss got me excited and feeling challenged for next year.
Here is a close up on the costume.
Aki wore a hat and a towel over his shoulders. Of course, the taho containers completed the look. The cans also had a serving spoon and plastic cups.
For the worker day at school, Aki wore a plain sando and denim shorts. Too bad I was not able to take clear shots of him before we left home. Every time I asked him to say taho, he kept saying Taaaa-eh. Oh yes, he is such a boy. Franco’s son indeed!
Anyhoo, to make the taho containers, we simply covered two tin cans with aluminum foil and attached them to an arnis stick.
Franco and I have a couple of ideas for next year’s worker day and Halloween. So exciting!
