TP Roll Multi-Storey Toy Car Garage

Both the boys have too many toy cars scattering on the floor. I decided to help them build a multi-storey garage last weekend. We used the larger toilet paper rolls for this project. We used 15 rolls for this multi-storey garage. Maybe we can build a bigger one next. Stick double sided tape on the TP Rolls. Stick them together as you wish. We made three levels with 5 garages on each level. Ayden seemed […]

Toilet Paper Roll Apple Tree

Ayden is turning two next month. That means he is ready for art and craft activities with me. Today, we made an apple tree using toilet paper roll and coloured crepe paper.  First, I get Ayden to paint the toilet paper roll with brown tempera paste.  He only needs to paint half of the toilet paper roll as we’ll be using only half. I did not cut it first because it is easier for him […]

DIY Wrapping Paper

Ethan will be celebrating Teacher’s Day in school today. He had no time to get gifts for his teachers so I helped him buy but I forgotten to get wrapping papers. I only realized we are out of wrapping paper after dinner and it is already too late to go out already. How? We made our own wrapping paper. First, I cut a heart shape from a piece of paper.  Then I placed another piece […]

How To Draw A Human Face out of your Foot Print

I was spending time drawing and colouring with Ayden. As usual, I’ll help him trace his hands and feet and draw faces out of them. We have been doing this since he was a baby and he loves it. Today, I am going to be very generous and share with you how to draw a human face out of your foot print. It is such an intricate art so you should pay close attention to […]

The Learning Process

Art subject can be fun and interesting but more often than not, parents and students don’t see it that way. For example Ethan brought home his latest art project last week. It is a texture and color art work. His teacher gave him a piece of paper with a printing of a robot on it. He is required to find surfaces with textures, place the paper on it and color; making prints on the robot along the […]

Paper Quilling Chinese New Year Card

We don’t usually go to Paradigm Mall but several weeks ago we did to meet up with friends. After out meet up, we thought of walking around for a while when we passed by Popular Bookstore and saw that they are giving a free art and craft session for kids but there was not even a single kid keen to participate. Why? What is happening to kids these days? Art and crafts don’t fancy them […]

Chinese New Year Angpow Lantern

It’s time to dig out your ang pow packets and make Chinese New Year decorations again because before you know it, Chinese New Year will appear right in front of you :) Though I’ve always used only angpow packets for my decorations, today’s decor requires one additional item though. We’ll need toilet paper rolls to make this lantern.  Ang pow lantern I used big toilet paper rolls instead of the normal small ones as this […]

15 Christmas Craft Ideas for Kids

When I published “How to make a Halloween Paper Pumpkin” 3 days before Halloween I got many mommies buzzing me requesting to post seasonal crafts EARLY so that they can make them on time for their parties.  Well, Christmas is in December and it is only the beginning of November now. I hope this entry is not too early though :D I’ve compiled 15 of our most popular Christmas crafts to share with our readers […]

Craft lessons during the holidays

I am very fortunate as I have a great Whatsapp group that consists of Ethan’s classmates’ moms. One of the mom initiated it and slowly but surely we help to add other mothers we got to know along the way. They have been very supportive throughout Ethan’s Primary One journey. We checked with each other if we were unsure regarding their homework or anything school related. Before the school holidays, I suggested that the kids […]

Footprint Christmas Tree Art For Kids

When Ethan was 3 years old, we did a footprint Christmas tree art together. Christmas is only a month away and now we have Ayden to join us for art and craft. This time, we use Ayden’s cute little footprint instead. Ayden together with Ethan painting Ayden’s cute little foot.  Ayden can’t paint his foot lah. He can’t even feed himself so Ethan had to do it all by himself. It is so weird that […]

Paper Plate Shark Craft For Kids

I was browsing the net and came across a paper plate shark craft by Cindy and her son Trevor from My Creative Life. It looks good so I made that our project last week. Besides the paper plate, we used different materials for other parts though.  Ayden can’t paint yet so I just let him sit on his high chair watching the elder brother at work.  Ayden got restless on the high chair so I […]

Paper Plate Penguin

Still in the mood of making simple animal crafts. Today’s extremely easy to do craft is made of paper plate. I love using paper plates for crafting as they are more durable compared to art block. It’s also nicer to paint on paper plates.  All we need is just ONE piece of paper plate. Fold as shown above. Paint the folded areas black. Glue them so they stick onto the plate.  Add eyes, beak and […]

Paper Plate Cow

So cute this boy last time.  Why I’m sharing this again today is because we made another cow […]

Amazing balancing butterfly craft

A friend reminded me recently that I made a really cool, magical bird back in our primary school days that got them all awed. Funny that I don’t remember about it until he mentioned it. I’ve forgotten how to do it though so I asked my sister if she remembers and sure enough, she did. We discussed further how to actually make it and today, I made it with Ethan. This is a really fun […]

Origami Whale

It’s the school holidays and that means planning some activities to keep the boys occupied. I did an impromptu origami session with Ethan a couple of days ago but he doesn’t know what we are making. LoL OK! Looks like I have to write up a lesson plan to introduce WHALEs to Ayden. Hmm… where can I find an edible whale? :D

Hand and Footprint Sun

It’s the school holidays and that means having Ethan at home all day, all night, all week :D To keep him occupied, we did an artwork yesterday. We did a Hand and Footprint Sun. We used Ayden’s hand and footprint for our art. Ethan tracing Ayden’s handprint.  He then traced Ayden’s foot. Ayden admiring his footprint. I get Ethan to cut out the hand and footprints. And paste them. Finally, he drew a pair of […]

Telescope Art Paper Holder

Ethan’s in Primary One now. That means bringing homework home, artwork included. I can’t stand how his art paper always ended looking like salted vege (all crumpled) at the end of the day so I made him this the other day – a telescope art paper holder. I didn’t actually make a telescope initially. Just a normal paper holder but after a chat with my Whatsapp group friends, the idea of telescope came to mind.  […]

Leaf art: Fox with a bushy tail

We were at the playground one evening when I recalled seeing a leaf art in one of the SJKC book recently. I quickly prompted Ethan to pick up some leaves home. Dried leaves of different shapes and sizes. Guided him to paste those leaves in place. Drew the eyes using liquid paper.  Add the eyeballs using a black marker.  Tah-dah! Can you guess what this is? A forklift! fox leaf.. Urm.. I mean a fox […]

Toe Print Caterpillar

15th September 2013 marked the first time my boys did art together. They did toe print caterpillar. Well, the big brother did most of the work but still.. :P Ethan painted a leaf. Stamped in onto a piece of paper.  Then he painted his toes.  And stamped them onto one of the leaves.  He drew legs and all and woke the little brother up.  Painted Ayden’s tiny toes. Ayden was pretty ticklish and kept pulling […]

How to draw the STAR of our Jalur Gemilang?

With Merdeka Day just around the corner, Ethan has been learning a lot about patriotism and singing the Jalur Gemilang and Satu Malaysia songs everyday in Kindy. Yesterday, he brought home his homework and proudly showed me the Jalur Gemilang he drew in class.  I find it amazing that he is able to draw the STAR as I always find it difficult during my school days. I told him that my star always ended up […]

School Holiday Project: Stamping Art

Ethan is having almost 2 weeks of school holidays and I’m already losing track of the days of the week. It happens when we are too free and need not remember what day it is today unlike during school days when every Monday means SPELLING, Wednesdays means EJAAN and Thursdays means TING XIE.  We did not go out of town as we dread the heavy traffic jam so I kept Ethan occupied at home. We […]

DIY Handphone Charger Holder

How many of you charges your handphone this way and worry that some elephant might stomp on it when you are not watching?  I used to do it this way until that day when I saw a genius creation of a handphone charger holder being made out of plastic shampoo container being shared on Facebook.  Well, I don’t think I can even cut a shampoo container so I decided to make do with a milk […]

Learning the art of painting

The kindergarten that Ethan is attending is kinda ‘weird’ in a sense that though they have Art & Craft in their timetable, they don’t do much BUT they’d encourage us to sign Ethan up for the additional Art & Craft classes held every Thursday AFTER schooling hours with an additional fee. Some of his friends go for this and Ethan’s teacher is always commenting that though Ethan is doing great in every subject, he is […]

Milk Carton Sailboat Craft

Every once in a while I like to buy milk in a carton. We don’t drink them too often but we do-lah once in a while. Knowing me, you’ll know that I don’t throw away things easily. I’ll try to come out with something before disposing them off.  So we did this – Milk Carton Sailboat. Ethan and his milk carton sailboat.  Ethan enjoying his glass of chocolate milk. I super love chocolate milk! Ethan […]
