My top 10 favourite fine motor skill activities for toddlers


1. sorting activities - you could sort anything basically from beans to pegs to duplo pieces and according to sizes, colour, texture etc. and even do sorting during bath time! :)
Here are some ideas:



2. stringing beads

3. lacing - I made my own, but you could easily get these from shops as well.

4. tonging

5. scooping water

6. transferring rice grains/ alphabet pasta or even water!

7. shelling eggs

8. slotting coins

9. pegging

10. juicing - this will be one of the kids' favourites! There's even a reward after the activity!

NTUC U family Mega Dance tickets giveaway

Picture source

Good news on a Monday from me again! 

This time NTUC U Family is giving away TWO Mega Dance tickets* (each ticket worth $30) to the event!
Each ticket admits a total of five people (of any adult/children combination).





Are you ready to groove to the latest Dance, R&B, Hip Hop and Pop music with your kids?

It doesn't matter that you can't dance. Let me tell you a secret.... shhh... I can't dance either. 

But I'm going to get some family night fun anyway! There's no prerequisite that you need to prove that you can dance or even that you need to be able to do the Gangnam style to get past the entrance.

Still thinking about your two left feet? Don't worry! There will be friendly professional instructors who will guide you through simple and yet enjoyable steps, choreographed to the music. I'm not sure about how this would be like, though I'm thinking we may just re-live our young moments doing mass dance in school during orientation! :P


The event details: 
Date:  24 November 2012, Saturday
Time: 7.00pm to 10.00pm (Registration & pre-event activities start at 6pm) 
Venue: The Coliseum™, Hard Rock Hotel® Singapore
