Encourage Kids to Draw

From my experience, one of the best way to let your kids enjoy drawing is by being part of the activity. I always tell my kids that they are very good in drawing. Sometimes, we make a deal. If they could draw something special for me, I offer myself to put some colors on the drawing to make it more beautiful. They will feel very excited and motivated to finish a complete drawing then. They just can't wait to see how the black and white drawing turn into a colorful artwork.

Happy Teacher's Day!

Creative Project for Teacher's Day

This is the first year for Haikal and Anas being students at Tadika Anjung Didik and they love their teachers very much. Every day there’s always a story about the teachers.

“Teacher Wawa got stomach ache.”
“Ustaz touched my head gently after I recited al-Fatihah.”
“Teacher gave me candies.”
“Teacher asked me to do homework.”
“Look, teacher gave me two stars because I did good colouring.”

Anas and friends.

I could see that my kids are very happy whenever they received compliments from teachers of the works they had done. They feel happy, proud and willing to do the same task again and again. 

Thank you teachers!

Teacher’s day is just around the corner! My kids and I tho
ught that it’s a good time to give something special to the teachers as a way of saying thank you. I planned a creative project and my kids were also involved in the implementation process. 

We spend more than an hour to carry out the painting task. Actually, it could be easily done within ten minutes, but you know kids…  They asked me to draw their favourite heavy transportation and were very excited to paint the lorry instead of actual drawing of the project. By the way, I’m glad that they did their job very well. Clap, clap!

Work in progress.
Mine. Ohh.. like mother like son :p

Next, it’s my turn to accomplish the work. I used a few recycle materials that could be easily found around the house. Milk scoops, two plastic lids and bottle caps. Ohh, I forgot to mention that the papers that we used for painting are the unfolded Anmum packaging boxes. What are all these things going to be? Wait for tomorrow. It’s for the teacher’ day :D.

Painted lids.

Fun Things To Do With Carrot

Since my husband was not feeling well last Sunday, we're not going anywhere as usual. It's time to have some fun activities at home with the kids! Something to do with carrot :)
I created carrot stamps and let them enjoyed stamping and painting. "Don't worry about the mess and the spills, kids. I'll take care of them." 

And this is for my beloved husband. Get well soon!

Magic Tree

I requested Haikal to draw a tree for me and he did it in the blink on an eye. Since the paper still got empty spaces, he added a bird nest with few eggs inside. He explained to me that the bird was away for food hunting. Then I asked him to draw himself next to the tree. He gave a try but it’s not that easy for him, so he ended up with drawing his favourite balls.

So, this is Haikal’s magic tree. The magical part is that the tree produces a lot of beautiful flowers which later will transform into  colourful balls.

Mmm.. it's cool, isn't it? I like the idea which will help me to  save a lot of money too :)
