Play School

B is already three but we decided not to enroll him yet and wait for next school year that will marked him as an official student. I say official because when he\’s  staying with her grandmother,  they let him attend  kinder class with his cousin and be the unofficial student or \’saling ket-ket/ pusa\’. 
Unfortunately, I am not able to witness all of these school experience and just rely on my mother\’s  stories on how he behave and misbehave at class. But, tomorrow\’s my chance to be with him on his 2nd day  in Toddler Power Play School at SM Center Muntinlupa. Since im on night shift  at work I can  accompany him  and will closely observe on how ready he is for school.

Our first assignment:

This activity is for the whole month, last day will be on July 28. So I will be expecting more of this: =)

Toddler\’s Pretend Play

One of the important teaching tool to develop toddler\’s imagination is by encouraging the child to develop his pretend play abilities using household items around us. Its a way of thinking outside the box by using common objects to represent real things in life. Below is B\’s imaginative pretend play activity with daddy:

Yup! Got it right! what else but Brandon pretending to be Thomas the cheeky train. He even goes \”chooo- choo\” as he crosses his railway. Its a good starting point of his imaginative play skills and  bonding time with daddy. This is one of my toddler\’s pretend play allowing him to express his own little world inside to the real world. This is represents a way of walking on someone else\’s shoes, learning and discovering things while playing. Pretend play helps    him nurture his  imagination, builds social and emotional skills, as he actively experiments other roles in life.

Baby Bath Time

Here, I found a must buy product for my toddler\’s bath time to help moisturized his dry skin. The very first time of using this product I immediately feel the difference in my son\’s dry skin and I love the refreshing scent.
Its mild and truly rich in moisture! JOHNSON\’S SOOTHING NATURALS really moisturizes the skin.
Its clinically proven to help soothe and relieve dry skin as they work to restore it to its natural softness. With an exclusive blend of Vitamin E, olive leaf extract and skin essential minerals.
Always on my grocery list at very affordable price of Php174. Thumbs up!
A smart buy for skin dryness… Now, I never have to buy expensive lotion that pedia recommends.

Pedal Bike Go-Kart for Kids

My son, who\’s turning 2 this month watches F1 with his daddy, enjoys car ride, and already tried Kiddie bump car in Star City. I know its quite early for his age, but thats how it goes. Well, for a fact that he looks more of a 3-4 year old kid able him to do stuff for kids older than his age.

When he turns 1 we bought a twist car that he carelessly bump around the house and early morning when he wakes up, he eagerly wanted to go outside carrying his car.

And now that he\’s turning 2, our birthday gift for him is a go-kart foot pedal that he\’ll surely appreciates. The Kart box indicates that its perfect for ages 3-6 years, the unit looks sturdy and can accommodate up to 120 kgs! (mommy can try this one!) The steering wheels enables to direct the kart wherever he wants… And it surely means Hours of Fun!

I remember hearing some comments like, \”Don\’t buy kiddie cars for it will only taught the child to go outside anytime he wants, coz having it means playing outside most of the time.\” But we don\’t have second thought about this, kids will be kids… let them enjoy being playful adding a new heights of adventure during playtime.

But personally, I found reasons having the pedal kart for my child:

  • it allows him for a good start in the \”off road world\”.
  • allows coordination development for his leg movements to go faster when zooming around the drive way.
  • he won\’t have any clue he\’s getting exercised while driving around.
  • creates a fun environment that supports active play.
  • getting the kid out for a fresh air!

See? this surely promotes a healthy lifestyle for a child doing exercise in his own free will.
I love this buy, and a credit to my effortless shopping! clap! clap!
