As I have mentioned on my previous post, I wanted Jami to have an arts and crafts side din. I wasn't that artsy kaya inggit na inggit ako sa magagaling mag DIY. Hahaha! =)
Anyway, one of the things that I want to try is coloring books. It was just lately that I am singing the Alphabet song so Jami would get familiar to it. We don't have a cable or antenna for our TV at home so Jami seldom watches TV. He would only watch Pororo DVD twice a week or when he goes to his Lola and Nanay's house. As much as possible, I don't want Jami to get so engage with gadgets and TV. I want him to become more of a book and play child. Nagawa ko ngang maging masaya when I was a kid without the gadgets eh, si Jami pa kaya. Besides, iba pa din ang batang lumaki in playing than watching TV and gadgets diba? =)
So for our first project, I want Jami to get familiar with colors and how to basically color something.
I repeatedly say, "Color the tree/apple/ball" then he would just doodle the color. I appreciate it very much since I know somehow, he learns something from what we are doing. Jami is really smart and I want to further enhance it.
|Uh-oh, Jami's getting bored. :p|
Yesterday morning, I gave Jami his coloring book again and asked him to color a new page when his Daddy wanted to share the book with him.
|Daddy was feeling bata! Can't resist the coloring book! Haha :p|
As a working mom, I want to do stuff with Jami on weekends so it was really so hard for me to say "yes" on any lakad with friends. I want all my weekends to be with Daryl and Jami where Jami and I can do some bonding moment with arts and crafts or just any crazy things while he's at the age where he's very game to anything while Daryl and I would have some time of ourselves to talk things over and discuss our plans.
I am looking forward for more arts and crafts on the coming weekends. =)
