The year end school holidays has officially started. The kids are out of school for 6 whole weeks. I have many different activities lined up for the kids to occupy them during this period of time.
I will be focusing on both building up their academic and non academic skills. We will be doing more cooking/ baking and crafts with outdoor activities as often as we can.
Over the weekend we came across a Nano Block exhibition and competition at the Atrium of a shopping mall we visited. It was really interesting to see all the different creations out of nano blocks. The kids and I have been creating small figurines out of nano blocks during previous holidays and they do love fixing it.
The drawback that I see is that we have run out of display space on the display cabinet that we have at home for it. Therefore I am not going to add any new pieces to the kids collection. These blocks like the “new themed ” lego blocks can only be fixed once so it’s not really that practical in my opinion. I still prefer the old style free play where creativity is really tested.
The highlight of last week for me was when Monkey boy received his award for achieving top 10% in his level. This is the 5th year straight that he has achieve this award.
