His homemade pirate ship

Gor gor was bored and he wanted to create something. He saw a pile of cardboard that I have collected and requested to work on some crafts by making use of the cardboards available. Finally he decided to make a pirate ship out of it.

He wanted some reference and so we browsed through the pictures on the internet to get some inspirations. He found a design he likes, looked at it for a moment and started working on it. Very soon, he “crafted” out the ship according to the design he wanted. A good way to train their photographic memory. He did not reference back to the picture at all.

He loves this process where he has to glue the paper onto the boat using his bare hands. He was having so much fun with this sensory play. He described the gluey feeling as silky and slippery.

The gluey paper took quite some time to dry up. He has to wait for the next day before he could start painting on it…

…and proceeded on to decorating it. A good way to increase and improve their creativity and decision making.

At last, his project is completed and he is certainly a happy boy with his happy little red pirate ship. He took the cover from a blue box and picked some blue legos to form the sea. Kudos to you for your great imagination and creativity.

Good job my boy! You did it all on your own!

I am a busy mummy of 2 wonderful kids. Their thirst for learning has made me busy researching and making learning resources/materials for them. Most of the time will be according to the topics that they have requested. Otherwise, I will randomly pick a topic and create the materials for them. Most of the time, the materials will include right brain training as well. From them, I get to learn a lot too! However, material preparation is quite a challenge! It will even be more challenging if you are a working parent! Here, I would love to share what we have done and hope busy parents out there will find our materials useful for their little one. If you have any queries/comments or if you have any topics that you would like to cover with your little one(s), do drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can :) Our mission is to find, discover and reveal the fun of kids learning! Drop us a message if you are interested in any of our materials. Let's make learning fun!
