What an absurd title for a blog post…isn’t it? At least it might seem like it if you have read my posts seven years ago :p So anyway, I spoke with 2-3 of my friends from my blogging days and they all told me I should be blogging again. So Ithought about it and decided… Continue reading Meethi Tikya
This is one of K’s favorite dish. She does not eat much anyway but this is something that at least makes her sit in high chair for a while 🙂 This is my vegetarian version because there are certain days when I feel that we should all eat meat-less stuff. Ingredients: Pasta (Any kind that… Continue reading Toddler Recipe: Pasta
K, made dis lovely picture in her playgroup this week and as it did not fit anywhere in her ABC Book, I had to think of wat to do with it. A new idea struck me while watching Barney 😛 I have decided to put it in a frame. Obviously the frame does not need… Continue reading Picture of the Month
<< Previous Last week K made a beautiful crescent moon in her playgroup class. This motivated me to get back to the book project. Well yes, motivation is what I needed. You see K is too young right now to either participate too much or even appreciate all the effort that is going in to… Continue reading The Book Project: First ABC Book (3)
<<Previous So here is how the book is coming along: Next>>
As soon as K turned 14 months, I let her join a playgroup that is conducted in our condominium’s playroom twice a week . K happens to be the youngest right now in the group while the oldest is 2 years and 4 months. I just love the kind of stuff they do: sing nursery rhymes, read books and also have an arts and crafts session. Although these children are too small to actually create themselves, with help from their teacher and their guardian attending the playgroup session with them, they create some lovely stuff. In the past one month, K has created 4 beautiful pieces of art Masha Allah that I am so proud of.
Now, I was saving all these little pieces of art in an ‘art bag’ but I realized that in the months to come, she will be creating many more small projects like this and I need to somehow preserve them.
So I have decided to convert these small projects into one bigger project: The ABC Book.
And we already have 4 pictures to go into our book: B (Butterfly), C (Cloud), S (Sun) and T (Tree).
I have decided to do the following:
- Get a file folder big enough to accommodate these pictures if 1 of them is pasted on one page.
- Get different colored construction paper, enough to make 26 pages (for the letters) and the pictures to go with each letter
- Get construction paper to write letters.
- I already have color markers, scissors and glue
- Get stickers to decorate and have fun!
I can also do separate posts on how to create each of the above art pieces. Let me know if you want me to do so. Else, I will just post when I will have these 4 letters in my ABC book insha Allah.
I am already excited!
I think I completely forgot to blog about this! Nearly 10 months ago, my husband told me about a job offer that he had from Philippines. With a nearly 5 month K in my arms, I was completely unprepared for a news like that. He had not accepted the offer by then but he told… Continue reading The move
