Pasko Sa Baryo: A Philippine Christmas Village
Bring Pasko in the Philippines to your home through this Filipino twist on the traditional snowy Christmas village decor that we’re used to! Instead of “BRRRR”, it’s our tribute to “BER”, as in the four last months of the year ending in “ber” when Filipinos in the Philippines celebrate the holiday spirit the whole time through.
Featuring elements of a typical town, or “baryo” in the Philippines - the simbahan (church), a bahay kubo (nipa hut), and a sari-sari store - adorned with parols and festive lighting, this fun family craft kit celebrating both Christmas and culture will make this holiday one to remember. While getting crafty, learn about the significance of each building in Philippine culture, as well as the country’s beloved holiday traditions.
And if you’ve already crafted a bahay kubo and/or sari-sari store from one of our past exploration boxes, you can add them to this scene to expand your village. Or feel free to create more baryo buildings from upcycling boxes you have around the house!
Also, Pasko is not complete without parols which is why we’ve included several parol crafting activities in this kit. The first is a small parol that is actually a lantern, with battery-operated tea light included. The next are the tiny parols - mini replicas of the lantern parol - that are to adorn the mini baryo. And finally, the parol button pin in which you make and add tassels - a fun accessory to show your holiday spirit!
We wish you sweet holiday memories filled with fun and culture. Maligayang Pasko!
