Most Filipinos have a basic understanding of why we commemorate our Independence Day on June 12. But we should also take the time to educate our children about the history and importance of celebrating our freedom as a nation.
Here are some suggestions on how to teach your children on Philippine history and appreciate the celebration of independence day.
1. Make a Philippine Flag Craft
This is a very fun building activity for the kids and tons of materials you can choose in making a simple Philippine flag. You can create the PH flag by painting it using watercolor, crayons, poster color, colored pencil and more. You can opt for the traditional materials like art paper, construction paper and glue to put them all together.
The best part is letting your child wave the flag and teaching them that it means something from the colors and the symbols on it.
2. Read books about the history of the Philippines
There are many available books that can educate your child about the Philippines. Here are some of our recommended books for your children that you might like:
- All About the Philippines: Stories, Songs, Crafts and Games for Kids by Gidget Roceles Jimenez (Author), Corazon Dandan-Albano (Illustrator)
- Filipino Celebrations: A Treasury of Feasts and Festivals by Liana Romulo (Author), Corazon Dandan-Albano (Illustrator)
- Bahay Kubo and Other Filipino Folksongs for Children by Christopher Gannon (Author)
3. Online educational websites
Online learning is growing in popularity among children, as every kid knows how to search the internet and discover more about the world or attain information.

For some parents, a laptop isn’t portable enough for kids to do their learning needs. We would recommend a tablet that is more compact, easy to hold, equipped with powerful features and a reliable brand. Here are some budget-friendly Huawei tablets we can recommend for your kids online learning available at Shopee.
