Kiddie Rides with Sesame Street Characters

Kiddie rides are so much fun and my son loves to play with such when we are in any shopping mall. Whenever we are at a shopping mall I spend time with him around kiddie rides and he enjoys walking around, riding and talking with the characters.

When we visited AMK Hub last week to see the Balloon Candyland, we spent the day there in the shopping mall. So, my son had the chance to play with kiddie rides at AMK Hub kids play area leisurely till he gets bored. Although these kiddie rides are at a side of level 3,it is like a small indoor playground for kids which they can spend time with their favourite charactors.This time, as he is nearly 3 years old, he knows names of most of the characters in these kiddie rides. He was so happy to meet the friends in Sesame Street and talk and sit with them.These kiddie rides with Sesame Street characters are bright coloured,beautiful and cheerful!A really fun for kids!

Hello Big Bird! And Elmo is talking to us 🙂

Big Bird is one of the popular Sesame Street Characters while Elmo is most of the time admired by moms and kids.Having a ride in Big Bird Express with Elmo and Big Bird was so much fun! 🙂

DIY Recycling Bin for Kids + Tzu Chi Recycling Day

Teaching kids about value of recycling is really important. I think we don’t have to wait till kids grow to teach them the value of recycling and caring for our mother nature.

DIY Recycling Bin for kids

After I received a leaflet about Tzu Chi Recycling Day, I decided not to collect recyclable items only by myself; instead I wanted to join my toddler with the cause. As a start we made this DIY Recycling Bin which is a funful and educational activity to do with toddlers or even with grown up kids.

DIY Recycling Bin for Kids

Here is what we did. You can add some more ideas to this DIY Recycling Bin and make it more beautiful.

We used,

  •  A cardboard box (Actually what we used is an empty cake box which is supposed to throw)
  • Crepe paper for decoration
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Sellotape

First we removed the lid of the cardboard box. Then I used sellotape on edges to make the box stronger.

Using the green colour crepe paper we made recycle symbol and we also pasted another purple colour crepe paper on top of the box just to make it beautiful.

Finally, it is done!

We have a beautiful Recycling Bin.

Now we can collect recyclable materials in this box till the next collection date. Last few days I collected few yogurt cups and milk bottles, so we put those into our recycle box.

DIY Recycling Bin for kids

Remember to wash and clean all items before collecting.After collecting recyclables,it is time to send those to a recycling point in your neighborhood!

Tzu Chi Recycling Day

In Singapore, every second Sunday of each month is Tzu Chi Recycling Day. Few days ago Tzu Chi Volunteers visited our neighborhood including our home to encourage residents to collect recyclable items. I missed joining with the April Tzu Chi Recycling Day, but I am preparing to join with the next Recycling Day together with my toddler.

Hope I will be able to teach him the value of preserving earth from his young age!

 

Evening Walk Around the Neighborhood

Last week it was a long weekend and a holiday in Singapore as it was Chinese New Year celebrations. In an evening I went out with my son for a short walk around our neighborhood.

Suddenly we found a children’s playground with new play equipment. Actually we’ve come here before and at that time the play equipment was not so new.

This time I found it is suitable for children over 2years old and found new play equipment such as rocking blue whale, rocking frog and a colorful seesaw.

Have you ever played this sidewalk game (Hopscotch)  in your childhood?

With the Chinese New year, the year is for Monkey. As always, this time also we could see beautiful preparations for Chinese New Year in our nearest shopping mall AMK Hub. Each year we really like to see the different preparation and decorations to celebrate the events throughout the year. Now, with our son, visiting this place to show him these celebrations is just like a day out. He really enjoys his time with us in this shopping mall.

Kiddie Rides at Amk Hub-Singapore

Here is a favorite place for my son whenever we visit AMK hub. In Singapore, there are kiddie rides areas in almost all shopping malls. Though my son still doesn’t like to have a paid ride (actually he is scared and still 2 years old), he loves to sit inside the cars.

These are some photos from a recent visit to AMK hub. He loved sitting and ridding each of these cars.
