KID Museum and the Embassy of the Philippines are proud to present Philippines Day and Ligligan Parul, the Filipino Festival of Light!
Bring the entire family to build light-up projects, learn about textiles and woodworking, and enjoy Filipino food and performances.
All-day activities include:
--Make a Festival-Inspired Lantern: Ligligan Parul is traditionally celebrated with giant lanterns built more than 10 feet high with dancing lights that highlight intricate designs. Join us and make a lantern as you can learn about electricity and motors.
--Light-up Wooden Star: Help us illuminate our star-shaped wooden board. Learn how to use a power drill and build a simple circuit at the same time.
--Philippines Tarsier: Create a textile project that looks like the Philippines Tarsier, a small, furry mammal native to that region.
--LEGO WeDo Parol Carnival: Learn the basics of computer programming through LEGO WeDo, then program your motor to make your cardboard Carnival rides run.
--Construct a Wooden Boat: Paraws are traditional Filipino boats known for their double outriggers, crab-claw sails, and a small triangular foresail. Make your own Paraw boat and learn basics of woodworking like sanding and drilling.
