As always I love doing the preparations together, i love to see their excited faces, their happy energy helping me preparing the stuff needed for the birthdays, always it is just simple stuff, but that whats counts. We will bake, decorate the cake together. Cut papers to adorn the goody bag together, put stuff in the goody bag together, count and arrange them. This simple stuff. By doing most things myself I end up not spending much, I invested most in the thoughts of creating a happy and memorable environments during the preparation and celebration time( ape ko merepek ni adlin? Hahahahahha)
While making the lego cake , i can see how excited uyay was, he will runing in and out of his play room to me, eager to help in every step, singing and became so chatty, once the lego cake is materialize he went and get his lego's and match them up with his cake, later i put the cake in the fridge, and he will go peep at his cake many times .
Tada!!! The lego cake!!, it is far from perfect or beautiful, but well we did it!!
Then we start on the goody bag , uyay cut the picture and ummi paste it on the gift bags, and then we put the goodies in.
Uyay busy with the goody bags for his friends.
At school the teacher sit at the centre holding a sun, and let uyay hold a globe. They then started singing " the earth goes around the sun, The sun, the earth goes around the sun, its take 12 months, 52 weeks ,365 days, 1!!! , by the time uyay completes 1 round and they say uyay is 1 year old!, and since he is 5 years old, they continued the song and let uyay circle the sun 5 times, each one complete round they will shout 2! , 3 !. Which I thought was so brilliant to make the kids understand the fundamental of their age!! I love montessory ways!.
Then the birthday song and candles.
