Homeschooling Activity : Science Experiment – How to make a snake jump

Today’s activity is more suitable for younger children than toddlers. We are going to learn about static electricity and how it can make a paper snake jump! First, we’ll need to draw a snake on a piece of paper. Next, cut the snake out. Before you know it, it will jump and bite you!  Watch this video to see how it actually happens: Check out also our other Science experiment:

Touch Me Not

When I was just a little kid, I remember being highly fascinated by the reaction of this unique plant called Mimosa pudica or Touch Me Not upon contact. I love looking for it and touching it to see the leaves closing and waited patiently for them to open up again only to touch them again to see them close. I can do this the entire day without getting bored. We go to the playground almost every […]

Homeschooling the Toddler: Science Experiment – Float or Sink?

Just like big brother Ethan during his preschool years, I am homeschooling Ayden too. Besides doing art & craft and learning music, Ayden loves Science. Today’s activity is discovering if certain objects FLOAT or SINK. I get Ayden to pick stuffs around the house and placed it in a container for the experiment. Not known to him, I added one extra stuff in there for the surprise element later. We talked about each items and […]

Craft for Toddlers: Rock Painting

Today’s craft is inspired by the colourful rocks found in big brother Ethan’s school. Ayden follows Ethan on Saturdays for big brother’s Taekwondo class. He loves the colorful rocks in the school compound. That prompted me to let him paint his own rock. Materials needed are acrylic paints, paint brush, an empty egg carton for the paints and an empty Vitagen bottle to wash the paint brush. You can always use a paint palette but I […]

Ayden’s First Dental Check-Up

Remember I did teeth scaling not too long ago? I don’t know why but I found it torturing. Darling (the Daddy) was supposed to do it too after me but because I suffered so much, I told him not to do it as I thought he has a lower pain threshold compared to me.  But he wanted to do it nevertheless so we were back at the dentist last weekend. Now, Ayden has seen big […]

Test of manhood.. urm… manliness

A boy is considered a man when some parts of his body are fully developed. However, there are people who believe that a man can only be called a man if he is brave and has done something big to earn the righteous title. In my household, my boys are automatically upgraded to men if they can complete one task – killing cockroach. I am extremely scared of cockroaches. I will sream my lungs out […]

Craft for Toddlers: Leaf Stamp Art

Ayden enjoyed doing the Torn Paper Apple Art we did several days ago and kept requesting for more arts and crafts activities. I happily obliged. This time I brought them outdoor. The weather is always beautiful in the evenings and it will be such a waste not to enjoy it. I made a video of Ayden painting and stamping independently. The elder brother Ethan disappeared soon after collecting leaves to join his friends for a game […]

Ayden’s first professional hair cut and it’s FREE!

Last Sunday I went to get my hair cut. I’ve not had a hair cut since January and it is really messy. I took this opportunity to get Ayden’s hair cut too. It is Ayden’s first professional hair cut and it’s FREE! 😘 “Number76 gives free hair cut to all kids below 5, if their parent is a member” Since I will be there for a hair cut and hair relaxing service, I might as well arrange […]

Activities for Toddlers in KidZania

We brought the boys to KidZania today. I was surprised that we needed to pay RM39 for Ayden to enter and play too. I asked them what can a 2 1/2 year old kid do in KidZania? To my amazement, they told me there are 19 activities suitable for toddlers in KidZania. Ethan’s entrance fee is RM80 (9 year old) while both Darling and I are RM39 each for parents. So let’s check out what are the […]

Monkeys

I always sing with Ayden the nursery rhyme that goes like this, “Mummy called the doctor and the doctor said, ‘No more monkeys jumping on the bed’ “ The other day when Ayden was admitted in the hospital, I introduced the doctors and nurses to him. He laughed and said we are the monkeys the doctor has always been telling not to jump on the bed. I laughed with him and never thought much about […]

Fever and Fits

I am sorry for not answering or returning your calls, replying private messages, comments and more. I know everyone is concerned and wants to know what happened to us, particularly Ayden but I do not have time to explain to each and every one. It was after midnight, 5 days after that horrifying ordeal that we are finally home again. So let me tell you what exactly happened. If you read my previous post, you’ll […]

Ayam oh Ayam

We were back in my in-law’s place during the recent Chinese New Year break. There wasn’t much to do over there but the boys got the opportunity to be Kampung boys. One of the activity Ayden loves the most is playing with the chicks (as in ANAK AYAMs). Disclaimer: No AYAMS were hurt in the making of this blog post. My sister-in-law was attacked by the mother hen though while she was taking this chick away from […]

Chinese New Year OOTD

I am back! Am finally home with fast internet connection! *Dusting off cobwebs* I’ve not updated my blog for a week now because the internet connection in both my in-law’s and my parent’s place are so lagging it will take me hours just to post a proper blog post so I decided to take a break completely. I was also too occupied catching up on life offline that it does not even matter :D There are […]

Ayden’s First Appearance in the Newspaper

Ayden finally got his small break and appeared in the newspaper together with the Daddy and big brother Ethan – The Star Metro Central on the 2 February 2016 to be exact. The article doesn’t have anything to do with him though :P We were having a Chinese New Year Lou Sang dinner preview at Si Chuan Dou Hua, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur and were tossing to prosperity when the photographer caught this shot. I was no […]

Ayden’s First Time Flying

Last Saturday was Ayden’s first time flying. We flew to Singapore. We took Firefly from Subang to Singapore and return with Malaysia Airlines to KLIA. I prefer flying from Subang airport. It’s nearer to our house. We do not need to waste too much time travelling on the road. More over, the cab fee is definitely cheaper but we had no choice, we had to take MH home as there are no more flights from […]

Playing in the rain

Rain drops keep falling on my head… Yesterday, I brought the boys to the playground in the evening. It was quite a gloomy evening but it was not raining yet so I decided to go ahead and bring them over. We managed to spend over an hour there when the sky suddenly opened up and pours.  Ethan, Ayden and I quickly ran home but when we reached home, Ayden did not want to go inside. […]

LEGO day

While most kids have gone back to school, Ethan was still having an additional day off on Thursday as the school was being very generous with the festive holidays. Bored at home, I took both the boys out to the mall. The first thing we saw was LEGO. There is some kind of LEGO exhibition and activities going on and since the boys are so much into building blocks lately, this got their attention.  LEGO […]

Halloween Footprint Ghost for Kids

Halloween is just a couple of days away. Though Ayden is still clueless about what Halloween is all about, it doesn’t stop us from making a simple ghost artwork for fun.  I guided him to trace the outline of his foot on a piece of white paper.  Happy ghosts come in twos. He said they are very cute.  I cut the ghosts out for him to be used as bookmarks but he rather play with […]

BeeBop Circus – Learn Through Play

I used to not be in favour of indoor kids’ gym simply because I prefer my kids to sweat it out in open-air playgrounds with abundance of fresh air. Unfortunately this year, we are affected badly by the haze. I know the haze is an annual recurring issue but we are experiencing the worst haze ever this time around with schools being closed and kids are advised to stay indoors. But how long can we […]

Final Exam is OVER!

Ethan’s final exam is OVER! That means we are officially MERDEKA for the year. Although Ethan does his revision on his own most of the time, it does take a great teamwork to get him through the exam period because if you know us well, you’ll know that we are seldom at home. And then last minute when it is closer to exam time, I’ll rush Ethan to do his revision. He’ll have to cover the […]

Dressing up mannequin, the horror!

When Ayden was younger, he got very afraid of mannequins in the malls as they usually come without eyes, nose, mouth and all. Some even come without a head! LoL! Imagine his horror of seeing a headless person lah. Sometimes he sees mannequins without legs and that scares the heck out of him too.  Only recently he started to accept mannequins as they are; be it without a head, arms, legs or any other body […]

Weaning Off Breastfeeding

This week has been an emotional rollercoaster. I’m over-joyed because Ayden is fully diaperless at home and also at the playground. There has been no accident for the entire week. He is able to inform me should he need to take a leak or a dump. He even suggested to go shopping without his diapers but I am not ready for that. I can’t imagine the stress of running to the loo every single hour. […]

Going Diaperless

At 25 months old, Ayden is finally diaperless at home. It happenend just like that. I was folding Ethan’s old clothes to keep away when I saw his underwear and joked with Ayden if he wants to wear it. Surprisingly, he said YES so I washed it and let it dry. The next day, I asked Ayden again if he really wants to wear the underwear and he said YES. So I stripped him off […]

Towing a Roller Container

We were driving along aimlessly after dinner several nights ago when we spotted a tow truck getting ready to tow a roller container. Ethan and Ayden are ardent fans of vehicles and they requested for the Daddy to stop so they can see how it is done. It is actually my first time witnessing this too and I must admit I got as excited as the kids :D A roller container is a container mainly […]

One of those bad days…

We brought Ayden to his weekly gym class at BeeBop Circus as usual last Saturday evening. The difference was we woke him up early and was out of the house since morning (as I had some errands to run) and headed directly to the gym at 5pm without him getting a proper nap. I thought he’ll be okay as he has been looking forward to attend this once a week class all week especially with […]
