Our very own angry bird game

In montesorri method, they emphasize a lot on young minds exposure to the environment. My aim in this activity is mostly to introduce stones to my kid. Their shape, surface, strenght, weight etc. So i make them pick the white stones at one of our massive flower vase, make them washed and wipe the stones dry themselves... Then what??? i thought... And then the angry bird game idea just sprung out of nowhere. That is how usually i got my idea, from one leading to the other, once you think about something, your minds starts brainstorming and thoughts turned into reality. Its a perfect game to make!!! While playing the game the kids can apreciate the nature of stones, its hardness, heaviness, strenghts, and lots more that i cant describe. And its so much fun!! Learning should be fun!! We have to step outside the box and realize that educating the young minds are more than making sure our kids knows how to count and read. There are more to that. A, B, C, 1,2,3 substarct, minus, etc, etc are not The "education" but only tools to "The Real Education of Life". There are much strenght in play. But there are little values in TV, games, you tubes :D ( which is what our kids are doing nowadays even mine eepsss...Anyway, enjoy the pics. ( it will be random untill i manage to arrange them at my PC)

We picked the stones together washed them and wiped to dry.

colouring the stones.

The boys chooses their own colour for the birds.

The piggies are made from blocks.

cover them with white papers

Our very own sligshot.By building this simple structure ourselves and see it works we are showing the kids that we can make anything out of the things that we have. Encouraging innovative mind.
Now lets play!!
Piggies on blocks just like in the game.
This encourage balance, visual motor accuracy, understanding of tensile strength, goal and achievements, satisfaction and more..more

Voila!!! game over.

Space adventure

Today, suddenly Harith told me that he wanna make stars and put them up in the sky. The other day we were busy making rockets. Most of the rocket making directions i saw on the web are either using explosive or fire, therefore i try to change them to be propelled by ballon gush using ' bernoulli principle' ,but well its not working yet. Therefore the rockets stays as toys that is flown by the hands only. But the kids still love it. Anyway today Harith says he wants to land his rocket in the moon as well, and he wants his rocket to fly past the stars and our land ( which he means earth).So I thot of this projects. I make him draw his stars, moon and earth and cut them and hang them with a rope, we had another rope made for the rocket so that he can fly his rocket passed the stars , earth and land then in the moon. Uyay of course will join in once he feels he wants too. :). Check it out!!.

Lately i tend to keep most boxes that will come in handy once we wanna do our projects.

Both of them are coloring their own rocket, Harith's red and Uyay's blue
Put them to dry, notice the shiny effect of acrylic paint.

Putting the stars on strings
I just had to capture this little boy in his deep concentration.
Harith painting the earth and moon.
Both rockets are put on different strings from the stars and moon so they can fly over. This is such fun astronomy lessons dont you think??

Pizza boys

Making pizza is easy. Easy enough to make them with the kids. Make the dough, make the sauce, prepare anything for the topping. Then ask the kids to help spread them out. make few batch, bake one to eat, keep one for breakfast for the next day. Most importantly the kids love the do it yourself activities. It gives them the sense of achievements. To give them the satisfaction of eating something they made for themselves.

First of all ..lay the base.

spread the sauce

  Put all the topping, in this case i gave them hot dog, some sliced cheese, and tomatos, easy enough.

Ready to bake.

Abah actually enjoy the pizza for breakfast :)
