Singapore's Mom blog - Raising Our Successful Children is where I share about character building and home learning activities to help develop the potential of children. In addition, I am sharing on how I can raise my children up as Singaporeans. As a mother of 3, I have a simple philosophy for raising my children - I want to prepare my children to be ready for the real world and be a successful person.
Fun at home on a lazy Satuarday. Quilling is really easy. It encourages creativity and is also an activity that allows the child to practice fine motor skill.
Simply find strips of construction paper. Get your child to help you roll it up and then simple shape it.
Then, glue the different colours and shapes together to form your desired image. For us, since we are learning about insects, our quilling theme is insects. So Faith wanted to make: Bumblebee, caterpillar, dragonfly, grasshopper, butterfly and spider.
For the bubblebee and dragonfly, I actually have to stick different coloured strips together before rolling them.
Happy Faith with her work. Of course, Mummy helped her with the shaping while Faith helped to roll the paper and glue them.
