Dot to dot activity for my preschooler

Our homeschooling went a little better when my preschooler finally have an activity that suits him. He just loves doing dot to dot art for a week now. What I need to do before he start the activity is to form shapes, letters and numbers using circles on an easel pad.


Here’s my 3 year old doing the dot to dot activity. I got the paint markers for less than $13 dollars for a set of 6. The easel pad was less than $5 dollars.


You can also use bingo markers which is cheaper than the paint markers but I… Continue reading

Pointing America

As I was teaching my 5 year old some Geography, I also taught my preschooler a little bit of it too. My 3 year old’s age is fun to teach because he always initiates that he wants to do it. He got to know that this ball model of Earth is a globe and the large flat picture of map is a world map.


He is so excited that he got to point America in the globe. He also got to point mommy’s country in it which is the Philippines. Somehow, it amazed me how my kids have grown so… Continue reading

Grand piano keyboard wish

It’s interesting to know that portable keyboards doesn’t just come in one variety. If you really wanted to play the piano, you really want something more than what a digital keyboard can do. I realized this after my husband told me what he has been really longing to have lately. He said he wants a grand piano keyboard that has 88 keys so he could play to people in Nursing homes and parks. I was amazed that electronic keyboards can go that lot of keys in it. I really wish he will get to have his wish someday. Anyhow, here’s… Continue reading

Fun Stencil Art For Kids

After my kids helped me in loading and unloading laundry in the washer yesterday, we did a fun art together. A friend gave us a nice box of stencil for kids beginning art. She said it was her son’s before he learned how to draw. I thank her for such a lovely gift!


The stencil set gave Little G ideas what to draw and color. I am happy that it increased his motivation that art is fun. Before, he just won’t like to color a page or draw something in a paper. He just says “It’s lazy”. I felt sad… Continue reading
