Evan and 'girlfriend's drawing....

Featuring our next guest artist:
Evan and his little 'girlfriend'......

I like the idea of exchanging gifts with good friend....
It's more meaningful......
When the gift's drawn,
Especially for him to her,
And for her to him...

---------------------------------------------------------------------

I found this cute little drawing in Evan's bag pocket. He said it's from his 'girlfriend'!


So, I suggested that he draw something too and give it to her. With his dinner in front of him, he very excitedly drew a picture of 'Thunderman'. Full concentration.... colored it and wrote her name on it (I helped him spell it) and beside her name, he wrote his name.


He very proudly posed for me to snap this pic. After that I packed the drawing into his schoolbag. Then only did he eat his dinner! Hopefully he remembers to give it to her today in school!

Tips:Appreciating Final Product 温馨叮咛: 欣赏艺术品

Tips: Appreciating Final Product
Sometimes,
I need to use my imagination,
To understand my little prince's art work...
It'd be great,
If he's able to tell me what's he's drawing...

Little Prince: Mummy, see.. It's a tiger...
Mummy: Wow! Your tiger got black stripes on it's body! Brilliant!

Instead of trying to explain,
How a tiger actually looks like,
I actually praise him for getting the colour correct...
Later on,
I'll get more books and pictures of little tiger,
And let him observe and explore...

I strongly believe,
Though his very own observation,
He'll remember more and know more,
The characteristic of whatever he wanted to know...

温馨叮咛: 欣赏艺术品
有时,
我需要用更多的想象力,
来了解小王子很抽象的画。。。

没有直接告诉他应该要怎样画,
却找了很多书籍和照片,
让他以后的画,
更像他要画的艺术品。。。

我不是带领他作画,
而是陪他作画。。。
我相信,
通过他自己的观察,
会比我直接告诉他,
有着更深刻的印象。。。

Tips: Choice of Colour 温馨叮咛: 颜色の选择

Tips: Choice of Colour
Who said the sky must be blue?
Who said the leaves must be green?
There's no right and wrong,
In artistic world......

If adults limit the little one's choices,
We're actually limiting their very own creativity......
Let them explore,
And we'll amazed by their very own observation!

Mummy: What are you drawing today?
Little Prince: Papaya......
Mummy: What colour do you need?
Little Prince: Green...
Mummy: Oh! You've got a green papaya today?
Little Prince: It's still raw, cannot eat yet...

温馨叮咛: 颜色の选择
谁说天空一定是蓝色的?
谁说叶子一定是青色的?
在艺术的世界里,
没有所谓的对与错。。。

所以,
让小小艺术家自己决定用色。。。
别限制他们的创意。。。

小孩的观察能力,
是过人的!
小孩的创意,
是无限的!

Happy House


Whose happy house?


Probably belongs to my McQueen???


Or maybe mickey and his friends?

Just stick two unwanted boxes together......
As simple as that.......
And I can play for whole day long~~~~~~~~~~~

Tips: Save the environment 温馨叮咛: 环保

Tips: Save the environment
It might be a small tiny role to play......
But,
If everybody play his/her part,
It will make a huge different!

Other than basic colouring tools,
We love to use unwanted items,
For our fun art time......

Any unwanted items at home:
Boxes, Containers, Egg holder, Toilet paper roll...
They might just ended up in the rubbish bin...
But,
Little ideas make all the unwanted items,
Become new toy that's fun to play with.....

It's not only about the art time the little one enjoys,
It's also about my little prince's able to play the toy,
Made all by himself!!!
This is some little thing he can be proud with!!
He truly enjoy the art time,
And also the playing time with his own custom-made toys!

温馨叮咛: 环保

如果每个人都愿意付出小小的贡献,
只是一个小小的动作,
就能带来巨大的改变。。。

除了颜色的材料以外,
我们都爱用别人认为没有用的东西
别人都丢进垃圾桶的东西,
动动脑筋加点创意。。。
再‘加工’成为好玩的玩具。。。

小王子除了享受他的美术时刻,
过后还可以玩自己亲自制作的玩具。。。
可以引以为荣,
亲手做成的玩具!~~~~~~

Tips: Freedom to Explore 温馨叮咛: 自由发挥

Tips: Freedom to Explore

We're not having an art class...
My little prince will have total freedom,
To choose whenever he want to have his own art time..
He have the total freedom,
To choose whatever he want to do...

The main point is totally about:
The precious bonding time,
Between mummy and toddler...

Our art time,
Is suppose to be maximum FUN!
For the little one.....

温馨叮咛: 自由发挥

这不是艺术班。。。
没有时间和地点的限制。。。
只要小王子喜欢,
任何时候都可以是他作画的时间。。。
只要小王子心血来潮,
任何题材任由他提出和选择。。。

最重要的,
是妈咪和宝贝之间的互动时间。。。
无价的。。。
宝贵的。。。

所以,
就让小王子自由发挥。。。
只要他觉得好玩,
就足够了。。。

Update:
Brilliant idea from Alice Law,
To stick a whistle on the flute.....
So that I can enjoy real blowing......
No more pretending!~

Juan Juan's Jigsaw Puzzle

This is the best Jigsaw Puzzle I've ever seen.....
It contains a love of mummy to her kiddo.......
The bonding time and the effect to come up with,
Their own personalized self-made jigsaw puzzle!~
Presenting.....
Juan Juan and her toy story puzzle!~

----------------------------------------------------------


Yesterday right after afternoon tea, mama found Juan Juan was feverish with her body temperature 38.3 degree celsius. After having her paracetamol syrup, her body temperature reduced in the evening but rosed back to 38.6 degree celcius at night. This morning although her fever seems subsided, mama still decided not to send her to the Montessori since her body temperature is quite fluctuating. Thus mama decided to spend this quality morning by doing something she likes, which are related to CRAFT, JIGSAW PUZZLE and her favourite CG characters, WOODY and BUZZ LIGHTYEAR!



We need some paper cardboards, which mama dismantled from paper boxes, and Toy Story 3 posters that papa printed online for Juan Juan early on.


Juan Juan picked her favourite poster, then mama helped to trace its' outline on a piece of cardboard with pencils and ruler.

Then, mama cut out a frame according to the outline mama had traced, and kept the centrepiece of the cardboard.

For the base of the frame, mama traced the frame on a piece of paper cardboard and cut it out.


Juan Juan applied paper glue on the centrepiece of the frame before sticking her favourite poster on it.



Mama let her draw the tracing lines for her puzzle(right at the back of the centrepiece)................. but it seems her creativity is way beyond mama's ability, thus mama didn't apply her 'ideas' for her custom made puzzle(sorry my dear)! Reminder: It's hard to cut according to the tracing lines if its' shapes are too odd!



Juan Juan applied glue on the frame and pasted it on its base, thada~!! Juan Juan has done with her puzzle frame!



It's time to colour the puzzle frame with poster colours! Initially Juan Juan wanted the frame to be coloured in her favourite green, but mama thought it would look nicer in blue. She thought for awhile and gave in with mama's idea, later she found it's quite interesting to combine both blue and white, which turned out to be light blue, she loves it!

The puzzle frame Juan Juan coloured, mama personally thinks it's very nice! Great job Juan Juan!




After the colours on the puzzle frame dried, mama trimmed the Toy Story characters from the other poster, while Juan Juan helped to paste it on the puzzle frame.




Here we present Little Sprout's 1st customised jigsaw puzzle!




Juan Juan enjoyed solving her new set of jigsaw puzzle!


Juan Juan pointing and showing mama the Toy Story characters names, she can name all of it correctly without fail!
