Under The Sea

The Bangsar Gospel Center's playgroup's theme for this term is "Under The Sea."


The clever teachers and volunteers have come up with crafts for different sea creatures, made out of cardboard, construction paper, foams, balloon (check out the puffer fish!), plastic strings and tinfoil.




Top down, L->R:

puffer-fish, walrus, starfish, shark, whale,
turtle and jelly fish, seahorse and dolphin.



Apart from just the crafts of making the sea creatures, helping the children to identify shapes and colours, there is also a little explanation on these sea creatures. I think we moms learn so much too, and not just our kids.


Today's sea creature feature was the sea snake.

Moms making the crafts with their kids.

And here's one of the moms in action: telling the class about sea snakes.



Then we were delighted when we found sea-creatures-shaped snacks. :)


Tasted like potato chips, I thought.

Blessed mum,

Yes, I think the crafts are great too. In fact, I usually find us mums enjoying the crafts more than our kids.
:)

Maybe it's also because we appreciate the creativity and the generosity of the teachers and volunteers.

Ann,

Very true.

We learn from other mums and also when we volunteer to do a session Then have to do some homework, research on internet or borrow a book from library. Hahaha.. like school days.
