teaching the little man with materials easily found at home

mum's thoughts, motherhood, early children education, children learning, pink stuff, homeschooling, Jared, Jared's nook,

I never miss the chance to teach my little man anything I can whenever an opportunity presented itself. There are numerous stuff around the house that we can use to work on Jared’s hand-eye coordination skills ~ pasta, macaroni, various re-purposed containers in different sizes, I’ve got an assortment of them here at home. Anything to get those little, grubby hands busy, really! + these cute pink rubber stamps are just one of them.

I originally bought these to adorn my postcards but it turned out to pique the little man’s interest so the stamps are now kept safe together with his other tot school stuffs. He use the tiny blocks to make several towers by stacking them one top of the other, or to make a choo-choo train by arranging them up in a straight line. We also count them all up or I ask him to name the items found on each rubber block on other occasions. I just simply let his imagination run wild as he plays!

Homeschooling our tots need not burn a whole in our pockets, we just need a little imagination + a handful of creativity! I will share more about our tot schooling fun next time, or see more of Jared in action with these rubber stamps on this Kids in Doodles post! πŸ™‚

my new mommy mundo bag

simple pleasures, pink stuff, eco-friendly stuffs

I have mentioned briefly about my new bag in my Expo Mom 2012 post, it was part of the loot that I was able to bring home that day! If you have been a regular reader, I guess you must have noticed by now my penchant for eco-bags, so I really love this new addition to my collection! I love that it is big to fit everything in + that it has a zipper for much needed security for my belongings! πŸ™‚

I have been using it since then + it is just perfect to stash all the items we need for Jared’s swimming lessons, including his inflated floaters, our camera! It is also perfect for an afternoon in the mall since you can simply dump all your shopping haul in it!

I have always been fascinated with big bags, especially when I become a mum, when I need to carry numerous items that my little man might need whenever we go out. They are so convenient to lag around instead of having multiple little bags since I can simple hoist it up on my shoulder, leaving both my hands free to hold Jared’s hands + attend to each of his needs. You can also check out my big Earth Pockets bag here.

Thought my new bag’s design deserved a spotlight on Pink Fridays, too! Oh + do not forget to join my Oli’s Uncommon Cents Book + $20 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway while you are here! Thanks! πŸ˜‰
