I'm actually on leave since Saturday, 25th Dec. 2010 until 2nd Jan. 2011. This is the longest holiday I've had since I started working again in June 2010. I've spent the last 6 days with so many activities with my daughters but we only really started off from Monday. So, the 4 days: Pack of Activities refers to how we spent our time together.
MONDAY (27TH DEC.2010)
We used the 5 Moral Stories pack. It's an interesting compilations of artwork in a pack with
a very reasonable price. I can tell you that it's less than RM40. I bought it from Watie GBOB.
My daughters really loved it and they could sit still and focused on the tasks for a long period of
time. Of course I had to help them too but I tried to let them did it first.
These are the end products:
TUESDAY&WEDNESDAY (28TH&29TH DEC. 2010)
On Tuesday, they pretended to be a vet and they treated their stuffed animals as their patients.
They also played with their new puzzles that their papa bought last Saturday from KJ night market.
On Wednesday morning, we washed all of their stuffed animals. They helped to soaked and then
brush some of the stuffed animals before I put all of them in the washing machine to spin them.
While waiting for the stuffed animals to dried up, they decided to do their puzzles again.
THURSDAY (30TH DEC. 2010)
We went out to buy some ingredients for our chocolate and raisins muffins. We already have some
ingredients at home but the main ingredients like butter, milk and four are not enough. So, at 10 o'clock, we went to Giant Hypermarket in KJ to get those ingredients. After I finished cooking lunch- Spaghetti Bolognaise (my style), we began baking muffins. I followed the simplest muffin recipe.
Basic Muffin Recipe
Dry ingredients: 2 cups of Self-raising flour, 1/2 cup of caster sugar
Wet ingredients: 1 egg, 2/3 cup of milk and 250 gm of butter
Method: 1) Combine flour and caster sugar in a bowl
2) Beat egg, milk and melted butter in another bowl
3) Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture, pour in the wet ingredients mixture.
4) Add in your favourite fillings like chocolate chips, raisins, dates, blueberry or anything at all.
I'm not sure what we are going to do tomorrow because we just knew that it's going to be pubic holiday for everybody. My main purpose on doing all the activities was to spent the quality time with my daughters since I've felt so guilty that they didn't really get to enjoy their school holiday. They had to go to their nursery and play there until I picked them up. If you want to use some of the ideas here, you are most welcomed because I love to share what I've done with my daughters.
