Homeschool Fieldtrip: Palipalaruan

Location: Palipalaruan, Museong Pambata
Address: Roxas Blvd. cor South Drive. Ermita, Manila

All Roxas Blvd. passers must have seen the transition of this old war helicopter into something worth visiting - a wonderful work of art of a Filipino and an Australian volunteer - a symbol of peace. You'll notice hang drawings from the kids in Mindanao - the kids of war. It made me sad knowing that they're drawings reflect the trauma they developed during the war which made me into realizing how lucky Yona is for living in a peaceful world.

The helicopter’s interiors was developed into a peace shrine to incorporate peace postcards, prayer text, objects, and other contributions from local and overseas individuals, friends, and supporters of Museo Pambata. Printed stories of child evacuees will also be added to this peace shrine, which to Reamillo signifies the lifting and connecting of communities across the globe.

Aside from this, your kid will also love the additional functions of the helicopter, slides! My daughter loved it so dearly.
