Fun with Toys – Spooky Spider and Friendly Caterpillar Crafts

Today is Parent Engagement Day in Angelo’s school. We were invited to create a toys out of recycled materials.

Since I did it last year with Angelo, daddy A and I agreed that it will be his turn this year. Being not so crafty type daddy I’m impressed that he come up with something spooktacular. Just in time for Halloween.

Presenting Spooky Spider and The Friendly Caterpillar..

Build a Marble Maze Game

This week theme is about Toys and Angelo’s assignment is creating a craft work related to this given topic. It can be A4 size OR on chart paper (not bigger then A3) 0R 3D. They are encouraging the child in making this project using different medium of art e.g. pasting, painting and colouring or using 3D objects. .

He also needs to write 3-5 sentences on Similarities and differences between old and new toys”.

I really don’t have a talent in drawing so I chose to do craft that I knew my son and I will love doing.

When I tild him that we will make a marble using shoebox lid and craftsticks his eyes glow and he’s so excited to start.

You will need:

Shoebox lid
Craftsticks
Glue gun
Plastic (optional)
Washi Tape

We agreed that we don’t want it plain so Angelo draw rocket, himself, stars and sun. Actually anything that comes into his mind. Then when his done we started to cut to pieces the craftsticks while cutting we already set the glue gun. At first I wasn’t sure whether it will be strong enough but I still keep it a try. We worked together to figure out the lenght and the path that would work. Since glur gun is very hot I am incharge of gluing the sticks.

Angelo and I had a great time playing it. But we have no choice but to bring it to his school for submission.

We will definitely mske one again but this time with complicated pattern.. hehe

Baby Wiggle DIY Indoor Photo Shoot

I have had this little blog since 2010 but it was year 2012 when i became so active of documenting our life – it’s been a place for me to express, reflect, connect with others, create, and document.  I love being able to look back on so many things in my life here on this little corner of the web.  I don’t see myself getting rid of it, I just wish it could stay as one of my priorities… and it hasn’t!  But it’s okay – my goal of 8-10 posts a month probably won’t happen in the coming months – but I will do the best I can, and most importantly, I will try to keep up with the documenting – not just for others to read, but for myself.

In the meantime I’d like to share some of the photos of Baby Wiggle. He is now 9 months old and I must say that he’s so adorable.IMG_1192
