Using a scrap book to keep our children's treasures.

Salam to all,

In the previous entry, "The Emergence of young artists" I shared about my daughters masterpieces in artworks. My daughters have had produced approximately hundreds of artworks since they attended playcentre in 2008. I received some comments from the other bloggers (thanks to my loyal readers xoxo) about the artworks. There was a suggestion that I should submit the artworks to Conteng Conteng website and some suggested that I should frame the artworks and also keep them well.

What I forgot to mention in the previous entry  is that in our playcentre, we do keep the best artwork (not all because the children tend to create so many artworks) in their special scrap book. We call it their PORTFOLIO BOOK. Every child who attend this playcentre (in fact most of other playcentres around New Zealand) will have at least one Portfolio Book. As the parents in this playcentre, we take turn to write something about our children and also other children. Normally we would snap some photos of the children especially when they are busy playing and learning through their play.

Would you like to know the contents in a Portfolio Book? Let's see the examples of Fathini and Hafizah's Portfolio Books. (Fathini has had two portfolio books now due to my eagerness to compile each and everyt crafts and paintings she made. )

So, what do you think? Is it this a fabulous idea to keep our children's treasures? From this portfolio book we as their parents are getting some benefits.

The Benefits are:
  • We can see our children's development by reading from the learning stories. (done by us or other parents who observed our children).
  • We can show this portfolio books to them once they grow up.
  • We can read other parents' stories about our children.
  • We can keep their best artworks or paintings too.
 I really like this idea. I reckon this will be a cool idea to be adopted in the kindergartens in Malaysia.
Well, that's what I would do if one day I'm able to open a kindergarten. Insya Allah.
