Block houses

Harith's can't see an empty box ( pantang tengok) sure he'll start to have ideas what to do with them. This time, we bought a new DVD player and the DVD box is his next target. He wanted to make houses with them, he in fact start counting how many houses he can get from the big box. Not just that he wanna make market place and blocks shop. Of course ummi have to help him and since i dont quite knew what is it he have in mind i ask him to draw them out. So today we set out to make this latest project. Later the houses are arrange at his city project ( i do not have the pic of the city project, coz i lost my phone before i could upload the pic.... Sigh) . While ummi do most of the drawing and cutting Harith did most of the colouring and planning. Hmm not bad kan :D.

Plane journal

I would like to encourage my children to read and write more. Its a good habit to learn from small. While tv and games are the bad habits, these are the good ones. From reading as we know opens all windows of knowledge. Journaling are a step above reading, to be able to write one have to read and digest the knowledge to share. Journaling is not something that is so familiar in our culture but its good nonetheless. Apart from encouraging my sons to keep their own journal that they can input in on a regular basis. This is more of a conceptual one. This time its about a plane since Harith loves them so much. We started from scratch with papers and strings as binder, and looking for pictures in magazines and i encourage to draw all the things about plane that he knows in the book as well. Harith draws lots of things from plane to airport even to places (since plane goes everywhere) he says.
