Have been reading some articles on the benefits of mushrooms & started introduce more mushrooms to our diet. Finally arranged a day to make a trip down to our local mushroom farm. Below is a short review from my DD.
One Saturday, my mum decided to bring us to a mushroom farm at Jalan Kayu. My brother & I actually went there before, which was organised by our Childcare Centre. This is the 1st time my parents went there.
When we reached there, we saw many houses where mushrooms are grown inside. A very friendly uncle guided us to some of the houses to let us see how the mushrooms grow. When we stepped into the house, oh, it's so cold. Guess how cold is it. It is 15°C.
Scratching your heads over what to do to entertain your kid during the upcoming March holidays?
Some suggested activities for parents to consider for the holidays include outdoor activities (such as park visits, in-line skating classes), art and other creative activities (such as pottery, art appreciation, dance and drama classes) and baking and cookery classes.
At Out of the Box Kids’ Club, our vision is Learning through Love and Laughter, where we aim to have our kids learn through fun activities. We have planned an exciting week of varied and enjoyable activities for the kids. Our holiday camp incorporates educational activities that range from an outdoor garden tour to a kids’ fitness class to bringing out the artist, scientist as well as chef in your child!
How about starting a herb garden with your child? Thought it would be nice to share with the parents here and give you some ideas on how to cultivate your child's interest in plants and nature.
If u live in a flat or apartment, then all u need is a small area to grow your herb garden. U can even use the corridor. Find a sunny spot for your garden with good/strong sunlight streaming in for at least 1/2 a day. Of course, if you live in a house with wide open spaces, then all the more better for the plants to thrive and grow.
Currently, my mini and humble herb garden consists of basil, rosemary, borage, sunflower and corn. I have been using the basil leaves and rosemary in my cooking. Intend to grow other herbs and plants soon.
You can buy ready potted basil, rosemary and borage at any nursery. As for the sunflower and corn, we buy the seeds from Cold Storage - or u can also get them at the nursery - and just grow them in pots.
West Coast Park - A place for Everyone, from Pre-Schoolers, to Primary School Kids, to Teens, to the Not so Young
The year end school holidays are here again! It is time to take our kids to the great outdoors for them to unwind after a year of studying, tests, exams and etc. It’s time for them to let their hair down and enjoy some fresh air, enjoy themselves.
