Summer may have already ended but that doesn’t mean outings with the kids are also coming to a halt. At BGC, there are lots of activities to do, especially on the weekend, for kids (and kids at heart). There are also shops and restaurants that cater to the different tastes of all members of the family.
Pursuit of Passion gives you six spots for a fun and family-friendly time.
1. Explore and Enjoy at The Mind Museum
If you decide to go out during the Father’s Day weekend, The Mind Museum offers a promo where dads go in for free as long as they are with two paying companions (P675 for adults, P475 for kids).
It offers an extraordinary educational experience that inspires the understanding of science. It has over 250 interactive exhibits through five interconnected stories: Atom, Earth, Life, Universe, and Technology.
There are also two outdoor areas to discover: Science-in-the-Park and JY Campos Park, where your kids can emulate the feeling of flying with Bungee Bungee for an extra P200.

2. Load up at 8 Cuts Burger Blends or TGI Fridays
Burgers, fries, and chicken tenders will surely be a hit for the kids so parents can’t go wrong with either 8 Cuts Burger Blends in Serendra or TGI Fridays in Bonifacio High Street.
Get a cheeseburger with fries and then add the Sub-Atomic Bacon and Cheese Fries Topping for good measure. Finish the meal with a Nutella Milkshake because your kids will definitely burn the sugar with the rest of your activities.
At TGI Fridays, the Chicken Fingers are unbeatable and their signature Double Chocolate Milkshake will give your kids the boost they need for the big day ahead.
3. Something New at Active Fun, Something ‘Old’ at the Sunday Pop-Up Playground
Indoor playground Active Fun allows your kids to strengthen their motor skills and sharpen their social skills through play. While these skills were developed in the streets for the older generation, Active Fun presents a safe environment so that the parents will be at ease.
If you go to BGC on a Sunday, your kids can go old school by playing giant versions of Jenga, Pick-up Sticks, Snakes & Ladders, and much more at the Sunday Pop-Up Playground. There are also giant versions of beloved Pinoy games such as Tumbang Preso.

4. Imaginations Run Wild at Kidzania
To develop your kids’ imagination, scoot on over to Kidzania where children from 4 to 17 years of age can discover, explore, and learn about the adult world in a kiddie-sized city built just for them (P1,100 for kids and P770 for adults on weekends).
It’s a city complete with streets, a transport system, and its own functioning economy. Kidzania has over 70 immersive role-playing activities; playing as a pilot, firefighter, artist, or broadcaster might give your kids an idea of what they want to be when they grow up. The kids are guaranteed to get a legitimate experience as the establishments at Kidzania are sponsored by leading industry partners, which provide technical expertise and know-how to all the activities.
5. Something to Take Home
Bonifacio High Street offers lots of shopping options for the kids. From toys and learning materials at Hobbes and Landes to furniture and other home needs at Pottery Barn to the cutest footwear at Shoe Thing, anything and everything that a child needs is just a short walk away.
6. Bond with Dad at Bonifacio High Street
BGC is also the perfect place for the kids to bond with their dads for the upcoming Father’s Day Celebration as Bonifacio High Street hosts Wheels and Grills.
Vintage and exotic cars will be on display along with car club eyeballs. Different food trucks will surround BHS that will cater to different tastes. There will also be pop-up bazaars, entertainment from different performers, and a quiz night.
With its friendly neighborhood and variety in shopping and dining options, BGC is a great place to settle in with your family. If you’re thinking of investing in a home, Avida Towers Turf BGC, which is just a short distance away from all of the fun activities, could be the right one for you.
