Making The Best Use Of A National Holiday

With a working mother who is out 6 days of the week, it gets really tough sometimes. So when a National Holiday comes in the middle of the week, we choose to use it well.

It began last night with these pots of homemade paint. We made a fresh batch of yellow, green, red and chocolate brown. The red and brown look similar in the picture though.

The morning started with V’s favourite activity – kalaloo (colouring).

We brought out yellow & green today. So first with brushes and then with fingers, our homemade paints painted a messy canvas. (Btw…these paints are totally eatable & washable)

Next up, some fun with numbers. We brought out the ice-cream sticks and pipe cleaners. Happy to note that V can comfortably identify numbers 1 – 10.

Lastly, we played with our colour flashcards. I made these sometime back and we hadn’t used them in a while. V enjoyed identifying his buu, oange, pulpul, edd, blaack. 🙂

We also used the pipe cleaner for a quick game to put to test our motor skills.

This comfortably took care of nearly 2 hours! Mommy was happy she could hold V’s attention for sometime. And V seemed pleased that Mommy wasn’t running away today.

More on these individual activities later…

    • Hey Reema! Thanks 🙂 Yes, I’ve had a productive day thanks to WBNI 🙂

      I am working on a post for the colours. Just digging out some old pictures from August (which is when I first made them). The post should be up tomorrow. As for the pipe cleaners, check any kiddie stores that keep craft supplies. I found them at one near my house. Really good things.
