Theme: Keys/Things at home
This was our Tot Tray setup at the beginning of the week. I reused most of our Halloween stuff and activities from the party so that they don't go to waste. He was really into puzzles and totally ignored the sensory bag and category box.
This was surprisingly a hit despite the fact that he needed my help.
The tongs were from his Little Bean steam steriliser and not very child-friendly.
He tried really hard to work it and laughed a lot during this activity.
LOVED the bedroom pegged puzzle.
The 'clock' and 'lamp' pieces were the easiest for him.
The rest he needed some help.
The M&D shapes puzzle of a house.
He is able to do this independently now.
This puzzle has moving pieces with holes on them.
I gave him a pencil to manipulate the pieces.
Perfect for Tiger to practice his tripod grip.
Inserting pencils into an ashtray shaped like a barrel.
It was perfect for fine motor activity.
Got it from Daiso for RM 5
A basket of keys of different sizes.
I caved and bought the M&D latch board for him.
It was on a 20% + 10% for members sale in Mothercare.
Price after discount: RM78.50
Have I mentioned that I am a total sucker for Crayola and M&D?
We played with some dough on the P is for Pumpkin worksheet
from 1+1+1=1 pumpkin pack.
He kept saying peh, peh, peh for letter P
Yes, he reads his alphabets in phonic now.
Mostly letters A, E, C, K, P, and I. These few applies to all 26 alphabets ^.^
I never really sat him down to 'read' his phonics, he mostly picked them up from songs and his toys
Mommy's little drama baby.
Smiling at the camera one second, then fake-crying the next o.O
Loves painting and anything messy.
He will always ask for 'shirt' when we enter the room.
That would be this blue thingy from IKEA meant for mealtimes.
It works better than an old shirt/any art smock
Here he is asking for help to uncap his Crayola watercolour.
He can uncap his markers but not these.
Little Tiger takes his art very seriously.
I am seriously serious.
I have created a simple art center for him so that he has access to all his indoor art stuff.
You may think that this is dangerous but just take a look at this site and you will understand.
Anyway, I only put out the washable stuff for easy clean-up
Finger paints and other super messies are off limit for now
Here he is cleaning up his desk with a wet tissue.
I always keep a pack nearby. They are excellent for fast clean-up and Tiger gets to help.
This boy love to clean!!
During the weekend, we did some messy art outdoor with some sponges from ELC. He loved it.
It's true. Toddlers are synonymous with messy
Well, this one is...
That night, Mommy raided Mothercare (again) and we had dinner at WIP in Bangsar Shopping Center
Here he is ordering dessert...
We decided to have an espresso + tiramisu, and Tiger had his first taste of coffee
Just a teeny bit...
Tiger and Mommy
Needless to say, he made a mess as usual when he refused to be fed.
We had briyani rice, garlic bread and chips scattered around him like it was confetti
Linking up to Tot School at 1+1+1
Tiger saw his little cousin during his last moments on earth and
as we left the room, he looked around and asked
As I held him tighter, I said,
"Baby's sleeping for now,"
Now, not a day goes by without my gratitude for having Little Tiger by my side.
He is the light in our lives right now as he carries on obliviously with his antics that bring a glimmer of joy to my poor sister in law and her husband.
