Activities That Make Family Travel Engaging & Educational


Traveling takes time and a question a lot of people have for their kids are “how can I best utilize this time for my children?”. An excellent way to utilize the time is to engage your children in activities that are fun and educational. Instead of children numbing out on their iPads for hours, kids have an opportunity to grow without even knowing it through interactive games.

You might be in the car with the family, on a long bus ride, or even in the air. Finding ways to pass time without looking at a screen can become a challenge in today's society. However, studies show that some simple travel games that don’t involve screens can create stronger connections among friends or family.

You might already have some family favorite games you play as you travel, but there might be some that you haven’t tried yet that could be a hit for your family. Travel games typically take into account limited space and unlimited imagination.



Airplane Mini Box

The Airplane mini box comes with 30 laughable ideas for you and your family to try while traveling. This game supports kids in staying present and to come up with creative ways to tackle challenges. Another bonus about the Airplane Mini box is that it requires no packing and takes into account everything you’d find on a plane. The challenges on the tokens can keep you occupied for hours if you take your time and have everyone participate. This game can even be played during layovers, which is a time where younger kids (and sometimes adults) get restless.


Elsewhere Scratch-Off Map




The Elsewhere Scratch-Off Map is a travel activity that will keep your child engaged as they start to scratch off locations they’ve visited and learned about along the route. You can get creative with the Scratch-Off Map by scratching off a location you’re driving through or visiting. Each location comes with interesting fun fact cards so that you can learn a bit along the way. It’s an activity that can keep giving as you explore the united states! Between traveling you can keep it framed for guests to see, oh and it’s also extra durable to handle any kid messes like spills or potential tears. This is the kind of gift both young and old can enjoy as the map fills with color every trip you take as a family. You can currently back them here on Kickstarter along with their new world map!



The Ultimate Travel Journal



The Ultimate Travel Journal is a great item to grab if you have any children because it will support your child's memory retention as the travel. Journaling becomes a great treasure trove of recorded events that later in life people can look back and jog an old memory. It also supports children with a reflection on the day's events and any landmarks that stood out to them that they saw. The journal even adds in some games and activities to play while traveling which adds plenty of excitement while waiting in a vehicle.


Magnet Fun

This is a great tool to spark a child’s visual creativity by giving them the power to create scenic views. With Magnet Fun - Cars, Planes, and Trains your younger children will have a blast creating, or recreating images they’ve seen throughout the road trip. Children tend to find magnets super magical, and so do some adults, which will keep them fascinated while also being able to create some awesome scenic views.

Kids Travel Activity Tray


The Travel Activity Tray is a perfect addition to a child's arsenal of entertainment because it gives them an opportunity to learn organizational tools. Yes, you can hook in an iPad but it isn’t necessary. This tray can hold dozens of activities for a child so that the minute they get bored there are almost a dozen other games waiting for them. It’s going to be hard for a kid to get bored with the Travel Activity Tray, and you can even combine it with other travel games on this list. Let your child help you decide what the tray looks like so that they feel like it’s customized for them.

How To Eat Healthy on a Tight Budget



We have this notion that eating healthy food is expensive. That is true for some, but there are ways that you can maximize your budget and yet, get the best quality food. You just have to stick to these rules:
  • Make a meal plan
  • Stick to your budget
  • Do substitutes
  • Cook your own food (cook in bulk quantity)
  • Pack your meals to the office or school
  • Know what is junk foods
  • Go to the flea or local market to buy produce



Fresh produce from the market which costs way cheaper than buying from the grocery. All these for $11 (Php510), I was able to buy fruits and vegetables I can use for juicing and cooking. 

All the above mentioned are all self-explanatory, food preparation is the KEY to HEALTHY EATING. This will save you money to buy other necessities at home. And, you are sure that you and your family are getting the best- nutritious food in the market. 



Below are some of my go-to nutritious drinks (smoothie and juice) that I am experimenting on for months now, and to this day I can say that I am happy with it. There are a few more recipes over at my Instagram account if you'd like to see. :) 











This is one of my favorite juice because of the citrusy and sweet taste of the pineapple combined with cucumber. :)














I really love munching on peanuts, I decided to buy organic raw nuts and roast it at home. I combined almonds, pumpkin, sunflower, peanuts, and raisins to make my own version of trail mix, less the chocolates of course! 
Roasting nuts can consume your time but it is all worth-it knowing how clean and you can maximize the roasting time according to your preference.

Eating healthy breakfast like cereal flakes, riched in fiber, using non-fat milk and raisins as a natural sweetener. 


Homemade organic peanut butter with roasted milled flaxseed with olive oil. 


I replaced the commercialized peanut butter we used to buy at the grocery to this homemade peanut butter. It took some time to get used to the taste but eventually we are loving it. On bread spread and even for all peanut butter sauces needed for cooking. 

Are you into eating healthy lately, any juice or smoothie recipe that you love?

What are Essential Oils - An Introduction to Aromatherapy




"Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it's called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health."
A couple of years back I was introduced to essential oil therapy by a friend, back then the notion of aromatherapy as an added wellness cure to was the least on the checklist. And, because of the widespread information, testimonials and feedbacks through social media it became more popular and the demand for essential oils skyrocketed. Amidst the demand, the pricing of essential oils varies from brands and the kind of oils placed in the market. 

So what's in essential oils that everyone has been crazy about? 

I am going to feature a brand of essential oils that is in the market today, and I was lucky to be able to test their samples. The trial kit comes with three essential oils (Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint) they also added two sachets of doTerra Deep Blue Rub and one- 2ml Deep Blue essential oil. Along with the oils, they also provided their updated and revised 2nd edition Essential Oils Simplified, with over 400+ natural remedies to common conditions. 









The Road to a Natural Lifestyle with Essential Oils
Jenni Wilson has been with doTERRA for 10 years. Both she and her husband Mike are in the medical field. Her husband is a medical doctor by profession and her on the other hand, studied natural medicine specializing in herbs and essential oil. For Jenni and Mike, using both approaches — the natural and scientific — has been working positively for their family.
Their goal from the very beginning has always been to help by educating people with the wonders of natural medicine and how it is useful in everyday lives. For one, it plays a big role in preventing illnesses that required medical attention and it is generally cheaper compared to medicines manufactured by big pharmaceutical companies. 
When she joined doTERRA during the very first years of the company, she is certain that the company’s mission and objective are always in line with her advocacy. 
doTERRA today is the largest essential oil company with $1 billion in assets and with an office in 16 countries, including the Philippines. They have a wide range of essential oils with various uses and functions. 

On Essential Oils
What we know now as essential oils generally come from plants. Many of the plants we have contain powerful compounds that are highly concentrated and potent. These compounds are the “oils” that give plants the aroma and protect them from harsh environments. 
The use of essential oils has been a long-time tradition that steamed from the many ancient civilizations. These essential oils were extracted from plants and were used as a medicine, beauty aid,  and even in food preparation. 
The process of extraction has changed throughout the years especially with the help of science. Most of the essential oils we have right now are extracted pure and free from harmful chemical ingredients. 
Using essential oils is very easy. While there are courses that teach aromatherapy and the use of essential oils, with just your interest and a basic understanding of the safety needs and application, you can basically use oils to help you in your everyday life. 


The doTERRA Way
With doTERRA, each essential oils are carefully distilled from plants that have been harvested at the perfect moment by skilled growers from around the world. Each of the oils was also carefully tested following the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality protocol.
Being one of the most trusted essential oils company in the USA, doTERRA continues to expand its reach in order to educate people from around the globe with the use of essential oil. The company also has expanded in the Philippines and have been providing a lot of training to those that want to take the route to more natural living. 
Jenni, throughout the years, saw the company grow and help small farmers and growers earn by producing essential oils. She also saw many people the company helped with the use of their products. 
Jenni is helping doTERRA expand its network in the Philippines by encouraging essential oil enthusiasts, moms, and even small entrepreneurs to get to know the product and possibly build their own business out of it. 
Through this, Jennie believes, she is helping people have a stable income and at the same time, educating them on the natural methods to care for their families. She is conducting workshops for free on the use of essential oils. She is also an author, speaker, and wellness coach. 
Jenni is the published author of a collaborative book by women bloggers entitled: “Trust Your Intuition: Twenty-five “Natural Confessions” from Influential Women Who Choose Healing Remedies for Their Families” which hit #1 on Amazon in the categories of Parenting: Family Health and Alternative Remedies: Herbal Remedies.
If you are in the Philippines and interested to learn about the uses of essential oils and build your own business with doTERRA, visit Jenni’s website at naturaloilmom.com and follow the Facebook page Essential Oil Philippines.
This coming weekend I added to my purchase list an oil diffuser lamp so I can put to test these essential oils I received, based on the article enclosed to get the most benefit of the oil is to diffuse it. Although, I already tested the back rub included in the package the other night and it was calming and soothing which I really like. It was easily absorbed without leaving a sticky feel. 

I will update this post once I have the diffuser. 

What is your favorite scent for an essential oil?
