DIY Toddlers Activities: Pom Pom Drop

I've been searching for simple DIY toddlers activities to keep Sticky Bean busy whilst mama prepares dinner each evening and this was among the first activity introduced together with the sensory bottles (which she's outgrown sensory bottles @ 16mths)

This simple DIY toddler activity helps with fine motor skills and kept Sticky Bean entertained for a long time.

At 18mths, toddlers love to put items into a bottle or container and love taking them out. This repetitive action can keep them going for quite a while.

All you need is a recycled plastic bottle and poms poms!
When she kind of got bored of the bottle some 2 weeks later, I modified the same play with an old yoghurt tub, cut holes on the lid and voila!  It became a same same but yet so different activity altogether.

Materials
- poms poms
- recycled bottles or containers




Sticky Bean @ 16 mths
Simple DIY toddlers activities like these help them hone their fine motor skills at such a low cost and with just a little effort.

I'm so addicted to simple DIY toddlers activities like these, I've been googling for tons of ideas and done a few variations of DIY toddlers activities. Shall share them bit by bit here.

For a start, here's a good consolidation of various types of pom pom activities for toddlers:

  2. Hi JSbuTa
    Thank you for visiting and leaving a note again. I'm so glad you enjoyed reading the posts though I've been slacking with the posts lately.
    I've bought my poms poms from Taobao but yes you are right, POPULAR sells them as well. They are in the crafts section.

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …
