DIY Toddler's Activities: Pom Pom Drop yet again!

I've previously introduced DIY Toddler's activities using Pom Pom and how I love using pom poms for Sticky Bean's activities as well as how versatile it is.
So here I am sharing yet another pom pom drop activity which is simple to make and uses recycled materials too.

1) poms poms
2) any recycled plastic tub with lid, in my case i used a huge yoghurt tub. The plastic tubs from ice cream containers will work well too

So I cut a few holes on the lid so Sticky Bean and push the poms poms through the holes. I cut them in different sizes so she can learn about sizes, cause and effects. Example, for the smaller holes, she will have to push the poms poms and exert strength for the pom poms to drop into the container.
Hope this will help hone her fine motor skills further.

Alright it's a challenge cutting holes in those lid with a pair of scissors so my holes ain't exactly round.
If you're worried about the sharp corners from the jagged edges, you can use a lighter to melt the edges slightly.

Here's sticky bean having fun with her pom pom drop. I've introduced this activity 3 months ago 3 months later, it still keeps her entertained.

Age attempted: Introduced at 18mths, now at 21mths, she's still interested in this.
Duration entertained: 15 - 20 mins
Will I try this again? YES!

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
