This is the DIY Robot Using Recycled Materials that my 8 year old daughter made for their Math & Science Week Project. She gathered the recycled materials that we have at home and used it to make this DIY Robot. :) 

Here's the short video introduction about her DIY Recycled Robot named Cubee.

The recycled materials used to make this robot are
  1.  Cardboard box 
  2.  Japanese Paper 
  3.  Plastic Caps 
  4.  Pipes 
  5.  Scotch tape 
  6.  Glue 
  7.  Glue gun 
  8.  Buttons 
By the way, you can also use any type of papers or pages from newspapers or magazines to cover the box. :) It's all up to you and your imagination. 

I hope you like this video and comment down below if you have made something like this too.

May 15, 2020 0 Comments
I started making printable worksheets for my daughter when she was in Nursery. She likes to write, draw, and color so, I made some printables and print it to practice her writing skills.

My daughter has an interest in writing cursive words since last year and I just let her practice writing even though it isn't introduced in their school yet. She's practicing writing her name in cursive again this summer and now that the school year has ended and she will be in Grade 3 this upcoming school year. I know they will be practicing to write in cursive, so I made a few Cursive Handwriting Worksheet Printables for her to practice.

Boredom Jar - A Great Way to Reduce Screen Time

December 20, 2018 0 Comments
Kids nowadays are not getting enough exercise, they are so fond of using smartphones, tablets and other gadgets for entertainment. It's nice because some apps are educational but excessive use of it might lead to serious health issues. I've seen a lot of stories about the effects and dangers of excessive screen time on children especially the younger ones. That's why I limit my daughter's screen time. I rarely let her use our phones or tablet, although sometimes I let her watch movies during weekends only. I want her to experience playing outside with other children without using any gadgets and enjoy her childhood like I enjoyed mine. :)

My daughter always say "I'm bored" especially when she see a kid or group of kids playing with their gadgets. I have also observed that when the screen time is over, she keep on saying "I'm bored", which is already annoying because she'll keep on bugging you thinking she will get to use the gadgets again if she'll cry and persist on what she wants. I pity her sometimes, thinking she's the only one who don't have a gadget to play on, but I stand firm on my decision to lessen her screen time to no screen time at all (if it can be helped) because it is for her own good anyway. I don't really give in to the tantrums, and when I say "NO", it's already final and I have to be firm about it.

Boredom Jar Activity Lists - Mama Miah

So, when I found out about the Boredom Jar just recently, I was so happy and I must say, it is really effective! I made my own list and when I heard her say "I'm bored" again, I told her about the Boredom Jar and how it works. As I was writing and adding up more tasks, my little one helped me fold the papers and she also thought of some things to do and add it up to her Boredom Jar! Hahaha!

I actually have no extra jar at home, so I make use of our old coin bank and use it as our Boredom Jar. ;)

By the way, here are some of the things she did today because she is bored... I loved the note that she made for me... She's so sweet... <3

Boredom Jar Activity Lists

I have a lot of things to add up on our list soon, because I know she's so hooked up with this activity and had picked a lot of papers inside and did all of them. I guess I made her busy and kept her boredom away. What a great way to unplugged. Happy Mom here... :)

Easter Sunday 2017

June 08, 2017 0 Comments
This is a long overdue post, hence, I'll still post this for Miel to read when she grows up...

It was our first time to join an Easter Sunday Activity such as Easter Egg Hunting and Easter Egg Painting and coloring activity. My daughter really had fun and she really enjoyed the activities and games that they've played. There were games for children her age and she happily played along with the other kids. She got excited to play another game when their team won and got their prizes... Kids love prizes... ;)


Joining this kind of activity is a great bonding for both of us. She also get to interact with different kids her age and she enjoyed doing all the activities with enthusiasm.

Miel's entry for the Coloring Activity got her two swimming pool passes at The Royal Mandaya Hotel. She's happy and excited to swim there but unfortunately, we haven't had the chance to go yet. But, we'll make sure to avail the passes before it expires... ;)

Over-all, the event was great and we had so much fun. Miel's actually looking forward to next year's Easter Sunday and she's hopeful and more motivated to hunt for more eggs next time... ;)
