Teaching kids the days of the week, months, seasons, days of the week and the time has never been so easy…..

Have you ever tried to teach your child  all of the above.  It can be a major exercise, as you will need the following:

  • a clock
  • a calendar
  • images showing different types of weather
  • images showing different seasons of the year
  • etc. etc.….

Wooden Calendar

Well have a look at the above a Wooden Calender Puzzle which is all in one “prop” to learn about:

Lacing & threading activities with young children, encouraging and developing manipulative skills & co-ordination skills….

Lacing & threading activities with young children, encouraging and developing manipulative skills together with co-ordination skills….


In my other article I spoke about how lacing and threading help in the development of these skills.

You can see how important to introduce different activities, as it will help them in their physical development.

Now if you have covered the basic lacing, you can move on to next stage where the end of the lace gets a bit smaller and the wholes that they are threading through, a bit smaller as well to make it a bit more challenging.

Activity sets like these will not only improve their skills but help them as well in pretend play and imaginative skills.


Other great lacing play sets are these below, which can be easily included in the Home Corner pretend play…


This awesome set covers everything from lacing,stacking,sorting,counting, and number recognition.


For something more this, letter and shapes sets will be more challenging.

Lacing Alphabet

Well when you think they finally mastered all the above…these gorgeous activity sets, which come in a tin box will provide them with lots of hours of activity.

 I think we covered quite a few stages of lacing here

What does Mother’s Day mean to me…..?

 What does Mother mean to you?


I know for me these days it is a celebration of honoring what my MUM means to me and what she has done for me and siblings, and also a joy to be blessed with 2 of my own.

Growing up as a child
  • one takes his MUM for granted in a way
  • she is always there for you, making sure you are cared for, loved and nurtured
  • as one grows older into teenage years, MUM becomes that person who does not know anything, she is ancient and does not understand where you are coming from
  • we grow into adulthood MUM all of a sudden becomes your friend, a person who is full of knowledge, and often is the one who gets asked for advise…..because of course as we all know now, she knows best what is good for her child!!!!!
Ah …how things change!

Lately I have been speaking to a Parrot in my travels….

As a Child next to our primary school, there used to be a cafe, who had this Parrot outside the Cafe in a cage, and as Kids we all use to stop by and say hello to Polly the “Parrot”. Polly the Parrot  used to say “hello do you want any lollies today”? 


I think the owner must have done a bit of training there with Polly LOL……It must have a been a great investment back then. Well lately I have been talking to another sort of Parrot, you know we have moved forward from my childhood, and I do not need to tell you how old I am now, but it has been quite awhile.

Well as you know the world of digital gadgets is a fascination these days. I have been approached lately to talk to a different kind of Parrot,  from the one I am used to speak to in my childhood years.

Initially I looked at it, it looked very fine slender piece of equipment. To tell you the truth  I have never used one of these before, so I was a bit baffled as to what I am supposed to do with it. When it comes to new technology, I seem to stay back a bit to try something new.

I sat down and read the instructions which to my surprise was not very hard at all to understand (in the meantime I charged my parrot)
  • You can charge it directly into your cigarette lighter
  • or use a USB/mini-USB cable to connect the Parrot MINIKIT+ to your computer

Sorry I forgot to mention that this very handy new device that I have is called Parrot MINIKIT+! I have to say the name suits it to "T"
