DIY Toddlers Activities: The Sticky Wall

I will do a rotation for DIY toddlers activities so that Sticky Bean won't get bored of it so fast. Personally toys and activities rotation works for Sticky Bean. We tend to keep her some of her toys and rotate them then she will play with them for a longer period of time.

And so as Sticky Bean got bored of the pom pom drop activity gradually, I introduced a new DIY toddler activity for her, which helps in building her creativity and honing her fine motor skills too.

Let's just call it the Sticky Wall activity. It's another simple DIY toddlers activities requiring minimal effort to prepare.

Materials:
Pieces of colourful construction paper / poms poms / feathers / tissue, in fact anything that's lightweight
Pair of scissors
Temporary glue spray or contact paper (self adhesive sheets)

Cut various shapes from the construction papers

I came across this product hence thought to try the spray, thinking that it is temporary. But big mistake, this spray mount is repositionable but NOT Temporary. I have difficulties removing the adhesive completely from our wall..horrors...(good thing we are still staying in the old flat whilst waiting for our BTO to be ready)

After this experience, I did another version with just contact sheets or rather self adhesive plastic.

I've later introduced the poms poms as well. So this was her masterpiece!

This simple DIY toddler actvity -  The Sticky Wall Activity kept Sticky Bean intrigued for couple of days and allow me to prepare dinner in total peace.

Here's into Day 3 of the Sticky Wall Activity



still keeping herself busy

Age attempted: 18 mths
Duration entertained: >30 minutes
Will I try this again? : With this adhesive spray, definitely not since it leaves the wall sticky. I bought contact paper to do a similar version but she loses interest in it really fast so probably not.

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 …
