I love National bookstore and Japan Stores because they have a lot of materials for art. It is always good to start buying basic stuff for activities at home. This would include Crayons, papers and colored paper, scissors, glue and stick glue.
I like doing activities with Josh that requires him to use his hands and avoid getting entertained by TV and the tablet. I bought some foam cut outs that had animals and shapes. Those were available in Japan Store for P88. Then with colored paper and stick glue we got ready to create our artwork!
As Joshua chooses his cut out, we would imagine that he is pretending to create a jungle with all these animals. When we tell stories, it helps Josh also with his imagination. I love listening to his version of the story telling too!
