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.

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

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.

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

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
