Although most of the time bowl went into gutter, kids enjoyed it and want to play it again.

As a human being we always envy for what we don't have. Then only we realize what we have actually enough and great.
Similar to Sophie, she always envy at others with straight hair. Although, she gets so many compliments about how nice her hair is, she still wants to try having straight hair.
Just like many other girl who love Taylor Swift, she made comment how straight Taylor's Swift hair is in most of her recent video. Then, one day we showed to Sophie, that Taylor's natural hair is curly, and she had her hair straighten.
So last weekend, I brought her to the saloon. In fact, that was Sophie first saloon experience. Here she is.
Look, how curly her hair is.
Because of the humidity and Sophie played outside in the evening, her straight her only last a day.
It is all good experience to her. For my hubby and I we love her natural hair. Adam loves her straight hair. What ever is it, we said to her to love her for who she is. And she can always style her hair hair when she grown up.

I It is always nice to be in KL during Chinese New Year. This is what we did every year when we lived in Penang. Less traffics than usual.
However, this year I feel so many people are still around in KL not going back to the hometown. Probably due to bad economy nowadays. I don't know, just my observation.
Anyway, this morning we tagged along J to our nearby shopping mall. Sophie and I went to Daiso and bought some of craft stuff. We wanted to make sewing box.
Nothing expensive, I used adhesive cloth to wrap the box. Then with glue gun I put decorative lace, and Sophie added adhesive ribbon.
Then using glue gun I paste woven tape with her name embroideried on the box.
While inner compartment I put bigger size art craft.
She is very happy with it. And I think this kit will make a very good party pack for bigger kids like more than 7 years old.

"Mum, wake up! Why didn't you come to my room", Adam woke me up.
"What time is it now?" , I couldn't find my glasses.
"6:51", Adam replied.
"What!!!!???? We are super late!".
Adam jumped into shower. I woke Sophie up and she didn't whine as usual. That 40 mins extra sleep did good to her I supposed. I usually wake up at 6, and then wake kids up at 6:15.
(There were so much things going in between)
Phew!!!..We reached school at 7:36 am. (Kids start at 7:45am)

PI sat down with my kids asking what they want to do for their extra-curriculum activity. Sophie said she wanted to do singing because she wants to be like Taylor Swift.
Funny isn't she. We are fine if she wants to become singer and love her idea for a new challenge. But we figured out, how about she learnt how to read first.
So we promised her she can do vocal on the next term, and at the same time encourage her to do more reading.
Because Adam is going for inline skating this year, so she decided to follow Adam. In fact she also followed Adam in the other seletctive activity.
Here they are, yesterday started the class. As usual Sophie is the smallest in the class, perhaps the youngest.

While the boys went out for guitar lesson, Sophie and I spent our girl only time, of course making art and craft. Other than playing minecraft with her brother, she definitely loves art and craft.
So today we made a barn playset
We used shoebox, felt, cardboard, toilet roll, some coloured and decorative paper. While Sophie in charge all the animals using play dough.
Chicken nesting on the egg and a chick.
I helped out in cutting, and Sophie decided where to put things together.
What impressed me is her playdough work. I didn't buy help her, but when she started making it, her idea kept flowing to make more and more.
These are two ladies with pizza and bread.
Duck and ducklings in the pond. This is my favourite.

Last Christmas Sophie received this packaging of clay charms from Santa which I think he got it from Kinokuniya in Siam Paragon.
I find the clay is a bit hard to squeeze, so it is not as perfect as the one the book when we made it.
It comes together with clay, some metal charm bracelets, charms loops, some metal to stick into the charms, clay, glass and a small clay cutter.
I didn't get a chance to take a photo while Sophie making it. There are step by steps instruction on each of the design in the book. Because Sophie can be impatient and wanted to do it quickly, she just made anything she likes.
Anyway, Soohie made hot dog, burger, spoon on egg and smoothie. While I made ice-lolli, French fries and doughnut.
We have to bake the clay after decorating it. Overall, I find it is easy to follow and do.

Sophie loves art and craft. I don't really taught her as much as Adam but she is naturally loves making pretty things.
I have set up my office that allowed my kids to sit behind me whitely do her art and craft work.
So usually after school she will come to my office and sit making somethings with less guidance.
There are plenty art and craft book and blog that we can refer to for guidance. I used a lot from Red Ted Art, as I find the steps guided are easy to follow and most of the times the material used are easily find at home. My method is to let my kids build things from scratch as many as they can, with little guidance. So giving them access to such environment will make them independencely looking for items they want to make.
I tried to use as much as recycle item for my kids art work. So I made sure we have decent amount of boxes that we keep, egg carton, empty bottle, card board. You don't want to hoard so many boxes. Keep them flat so you have plenty of space to put others recycle item.
Their art supply I keep in the Ikea Raskog trolley. which my kids can easily wheel out of the room when I have serious phone call. This is how ours look like.
I stuffed with colouring supply, art and craft supply which I picked up from Mr DIY.

It is not too late to wish Happy New Year right? What I only have 6 post from last year.
Kids are settling in a few days of 2016.
Adam had a good start for winning student of the week. Proud mummy. On Friday morning he was so confident he will be getting it. May be he knew he deserved it.
Sophie and I just finished making baby sleeping set. It is her first needle and thread work. Although she was scared at the beginning I made her tried it and she did well finishing seeing the button.
Adam helped made the pillow, using sewing machine. (He is good at it now).
