O for ocean creatures

Weeh! We are already on our O week of our A-Z activities. And for this week, it’s O for ocean creatures! ;))

Last Christmas, Marshall received a Christmas package from his Ninong Jay-r. I’m not sure how he arranged for the delivery, but the thought that he made an effort considering he’s in the Philippines and we’re here in Sydney, it’s just so sweet of him! 😉

I was overwhelmed by the huge box and so I immediately wrapped it and prepared it as a Christmas present. 17571059_1562397327104099_1797890402_o

Not a single doubt, Marshall was very much excited to open it.

Tadaa! It’s a big tub of ocean creatures from Animal Planet! It includes 50 pieces of various sea creatures including sharks, whales, dolphins, starfish, coral reefs, and a lot more that will surely bring out a child’s imagination to explore the depth of the ocean.

It contains 28 ocean animals, 12 small rocks, 6 seaweeds, 2 corals, and 2 large rocks.

Thinking about the mess it would make? No worries! It comes in a clear tub with a lid and a handle so he can easily pack away the figures after he’s done playing.

Here’s a video of Marshall enjoying it while bathing 😉

M for memory/matching game

I’m just so glad that while Marshall is learning at home, I can see that he is also enjoying, a lot!

This week is play time! Well, actually most of the time is just play time for us. hihi.

We are on our ‘M’ week, and we have another add on to our A-Z activities.

We played a memory/matching game.

I was actually thinking of something that matches colors and luckily I found some colored covers of his used playdough.

After lining up and arranging the colored covers, I initially covered with cut out papers. But it was not a very good idea since I saw him already peeking. tsk tsk! hehe

So I covered those with paper cups instead. haha!

L for lion

Feeding a toddler is one of the dilemmas of being a mom. I’m not sure how many can relate, but my 3-year-old son is always “mapili” when it comes to fruits and vegetables. Well, honestly, I used to be one when I was his age. hehe.

But as early as possible, I would like him to have the habit of eating healthy foods.

Last week was our L week activity, and just in time, I prepared a fun yet healthy snack for him.

Tenen.. 😉

I used bread, cut into round shape, spread some peanut butter, and surrounded it with oranges. Topped it with some banana, raisins, and strawberry. And of course cheese. He loves cheese!

It’s easy and simple.

Here’s a short video of our L week in addition to our A-Z activities. 🙂
