Play with me mommy!

I am trying really, really hard to post something.  I need to blog and why? because i love blogging.  I envied people who manage to post something every now and then. 
It's a matter of time management isn't it?

Here's what I would like to share today.

How often do you play with your children?
I was just wondering, how many parents actually playing with their children?
Does it bore you? 
have you forgotten how to play with your children already?

I was reading the other night that parents have forgotten how to play with their children.  
Although this post that I had read was a year older I still find it useful for me as a parent.  

I started asking myself, how often did I play with my children? 
Am I too busy with my new mobile phone or playing with the addictive game online?

 I am not bad actually. 
I was playing race with my son and daughter the other day, We were helping each other with the puzzles and even when their having a bike ride I ran along with them .... but
I still have plenty of room to improve.

Here's one comment that I like so much.

Make the time invest in your kids happiness and play times the dividends will come later in life.

There's one thing that me and my husband made sure: that we first give the (5)five minutes of our time to say ask the children how's their school, to say hello, give them a hug or play with them after our busy day at work and they will be fine.

Try it!

"Play is vital to a child's development. It improves the way they interact, communicate and develop key life skills. Play should be educational and inspirational but above all, it should be fun."

Back Blogging

There are certain times when you just got too busy.  But now i finally manage to come back blogging, hopefully i can continue to find a way to squeeze a little time to post.

I was thinking of, instead of focusing my blog to one subject -- I will just make it open to what ever happen around me.  I think that is better that way, make it a journal about my interests, experiences etc...not just parenting.

I was also learning digital scrap booking which i never got the chance to learn it further.  
I really need to learn to manage my time ... this time! more thing,  I was learning to tweak bloggers websites a long time ago and i want to play around this time again. So i might going to post a few tutorials along the way to share to everybody.  Just simple and easy to follow tutorials.

Thanks for reading ... got to go!

Fun Walking Games Idea's

I did a lot of walking with my children, and i enjoyed it.  The only time that is really annoying is when my son whines.  

I am sure a lot of parents been through this but I read one parenting book about walking games, since then walking with my children is fun and exciting.
Here are a few games I had tried
01   I Spy - This is my children's favorite.  We can get to our destination by just playing this one  game.  I am sure everyone knows how to play I spy but to those who have forgotten here's how to play it.  
  • Look around and silently select an object that can be seen by all the players.
  • Say, "I spy with my little eye," and then give some description of the object, such as "something beginning with letter C" or "something square" or "something small." etc...
  • You have to take turns with the other player trying to guess what the object is.
  • Who ever guess it right, will get the turn or you can assign who comes next.  With children, i think the best is to assign the next player, that way everything is in order and every one are happy.
 02 Safari Time - Look as many different kind of living things as you can.  Model the game so that  the children can understand how it done.  Children love to pretend, pretending as the safari guide is great fun for them.  Taking turn is always works a magic.
03  What can you hear - Let each child choose two to three sounds that they listen for while out walking.  Sounds like car horn, a dog barking, birds tweeting.  During the walk, each child listens out for their sounds.  This exercise developing their listening skills.
04 - Letter Boxes Numbers - My daughter stops at every letter boxes and look at each number. My Daughter learned the basic numbers and was having fun.
05 - Tell me the color - Colors of anything.  Flowers, road signs, house, doors, cars etc...  While having fun kids learn about colors.

There's so much out there that we can do as parents to make walking with our children fun.  Walk is free, great exercise for children.  Walk and talk with your children is amazing time to get connected with them more.  Talking about their school, friends, what is their happiest part of the day and what is the sad part of their day.  You will be surprised how much they open up this way.

BUSH WALKING is my son's favorite family time.
