Learning Through Play Date #5

After the previous very successful and engaging play date, I had felt a little pressured in engaging theses little bosses, actually only two difficult bosses to be exact. In organising this play date, we wanted to cover the senses Sight, and trust me, sight alone is not an easy topic to bring across!
Theme: Senses     Topics: Sight by matching, imitating, colors
Audience: 2 eighteen months old toddlers, Rainy and Little Brother Kyne
Our Informal Lesson Plan flowed as followed:

1. Good Morning Song
2. Music & Exercise Time
3. Shopping and Cooking Time
I had prepared a huge box of plastic food items and took pictures of them individually prior to the play date. I showed the picture via my mobile phone one by one and asked the toddlers to help me picked them out from the box of ingredients. 

Next, I gave the children each a set of utensils and asked them to watch and follow what I was doing - preparing and making drinks for mummy! They were impatient to wait for my instructions and they w…

Which Teeth Do You Want to Keep?

"You Don't Have to Brush All Your Teeth, Just The Ones You Want to Keep"
- unknown author
I found the above quote from the internet two years ago, when Big Brother Kyle started asking (and arguing) with me about why we had to brush our teeth. Instead of arguing with him or demanding him to brush his own teeth, I always just tell him the above quote and this is a very powerful sentence, for it's very difficult for a child to decide which teeth he doesn't want to keep!

I introduced toothbrushing to my children as soon as they are able to sit and walk steadily. For my second born Little Brother Kyne, it's so much easier as he only started erupting his first tooth at 13 months old! Back when i only had one child, that is my elder boy, i introduced to him the finger brush, followed by the different types of brush heads for different months old, before he finally used a proper toothbrush at 2 years old!

Having had experiences with battling toothbrushing with my eld…

Tollyjoy to The World + Giveaway

Last month, Little Brother Kyne received a very nice and big hamper from Tollyjoy! We would like to say a Big Thank You to the people at Tollyjoy for sending us such a wonderful hamper with many useful items!

Would it surprise you to know that Tollyjoy is founded in Singapore and has been around for 43 years now?! I can't believe that for the last five years where i had been using Tollyjoy products, I didn't realised that Tollyjoy is actually the first and only local Singapore brand of its kind to provide a comprehensive range of mother care and baby care products, of which, a sizable amount are manufactured in house by their own production team! 

The hamper that we received contains many useful items hand picked for our little brother. Which I thought it's a good idea to pack a hamper of Tollyjoy items for a new mom or baby next time. It will be quite different from the usual diaper cakes gift hampers and contains other useful items for a new mom & baby. :) 

I am hap…
