We were playing school last night when sweet girl yelled non-stop from downstairs
After a while, my heart could not take it.
Maybe it's time to try again?
So, trial class it was.
Gave her a CNY decorative box filled with cheap poker chips.
She played with the lid for a while.
Examined the inside and outside quietly.
More inquisitive than Tiger was at one.
|Container and chips (RM 9.80) from Fun & Cheer|
Thought of the old raisin can with a slit I made long ago for Tiger
Used to be wrapped nicely with origami paper
After two kids, no need wrapping anymore...hihi
Within 1 minute, Tiger abandoned his flags and joined us.
See the kaypoh chee brother?
No, mei-mei....like this....see? I teach you.
Unlike playing with toys,
they were so focused on the task at hand, they forgot to fight.
I love this pic showing both their little chubby hands
She was having some trouble.
So, I used masking tape to delineate the slit so that she could see the opening better.
Tried changing hands. No luck.
Played continuously for 10 minutes
Old can and some chips...
When she was done, she tried to shake out the chips by tipping
the can over.
Ended the class with some crayon work with Tiger.
She did not want to stop but Tiger announced that it was bedtime
Fingers crossed for more calm Tot school days ahead
