I have not sent my girls for any enrichment programmes this far, and they’re now P2 and K2 respectively… So far, i’ve only signed up for an Art Holiday Programme during the last June holidays, which i must say was a BIG hit with them both! They simply loved their time doing Pottery Art at the Twinkle Art studio! I do think that as parents we can make effort to encourage or support our childrens’ hobbies in our own way, without having to spend a fortune on upmarket enrichment programmes.
To cultivate an interest in art or craft, we can provide a headstart by sourcing for quality art materials in the market on our own.. to do with our children. Again, this provided we have time and the interest to start this off. On top of it all, we also get to spend time together to bond as a family too!
As i’m a very hands-on mum, i find great pleasure in looking for fun stuff to do with my girls.. And one hobby the 3 of us girls share is doing Art & Craft. We do together from just drawings or sketchings, to painting, to stamping, to Spray Art, origami and so much more….
My younger daughter received this Sand Art gift from her friend… & a family friend too… for her last birthday. My bad! I chucked her gift aside and forgot it was there so today we made it a point to do this Sand Art together! Buds hubs, me, jie-jie and mei-mei! Just to share our Sunday Craft with all..
The instructions were extremely simple to follow.
Peel off the sticker where we would like to begin with.
Prepare a shoe box lid/cover as a base to collect the remainder of sand.
From the dispenser of sand colours, turn the dispenser over and pour over the white, peeled areas. Reminds me of their milk powder dispenser from their babyhood. Ahakz!
Use tip of finger to rub on excess sand on the peeled areas.
Repeat this procedure until all the stickers are peeled and the picture is completely filled up with sand colours.
And the finished product….
And we all had great family fun!
I must admit this product brand "ALEX" is of very high quality! Even buds hubs was impressed! And i’m thinkin’ to get more… to surprise the girls … am sure they’ll be ecstatic!
I’ve laminated the pictures for my girls to keep em’ in their diaries. Can’t wait to see what they’ll write for this one…
PS : Anyone knows where to get more of this "ALEX" craft products?
