Easy DIY Yogurt: EasiYo!

My hubby and all three of our kids are yogurt lovers. Our entire family, except me. Somehow, I don’t fancy the sour taste of yogurt. And since I am no yogurt lover, I know nothing much about yogurt. I did not even know that yogurt can be DIY-ed.

Until I chanced upon the EasiYo Yogurt Maker.

EasiYo really lives up to its name. It is so easy to make a big jug of yogurt using this yogurt maker. In just 3 simple steps, you can have delicious home-made yogurt overnight!

All you need are water, EasiYo Yogurt Maker and EasiYo yogurt powder.

Clay Play: Making Teddy Bears

We’ve been busy ever since school started more than two weeks ago. Everyday is like a mad rush for me, getting the kids ready for school, preparing their meals, coaching them in their school work. We hardly have time to do anything else.

Today before going to school, Elly asked to “do something”. I searched my bookshelf and saw this pack of modelling clay which we had bought weeks ago at the Science Centre.

We live in a digital age. Our kids will grow up in a world of social media, touch screens and having an online presence. My 8 and 6 year-olds know about Facebook and will sometimes ask me to post their art work on it! They know that I have a blog too and are curious to read what I write here.

Painted Pebbles

We have a huge bag of rocks which I bought years ago from a nursery. Way before the kids were born.

My original plan for these rocks was to use them as ornaments and decorations around our house.

When the kids came along, I’ve found other uses for those rocks. We’ve used them for play, washed them in water, drew on them with markers, painted on them and applied glitter on them.

These rocks are versatile, I tell ya.

Look at these beautiful creations of painted rocks!

Back to School

20140630-122320-44600046.jpg

So my kiddos are back in school today. You might think I’m crazy, but I miss them!!!

I’m one of those weird parents who prefer school holidays to schooldays.

Last night, Zac, Jay and Elly were already lamenting that school holidays are over so soon. They couldn’t believe that a new school term is starting.

Some of you might be like me, missing your kids who have gone back to school today. Others might be the opposite of me, rejoicing that your kids are FINALLY back in school!

Whatever it is, here are some back to school quotes and jokes to brighten your day.

Jay’s Creation: Paper Basketball Game

DIY paper basketball game for kids

Jay has always been the creative one in our family. As in, he likes to create stuff. Invent stuff. He likes fiddling with paper, cardboard, recycled bottles, boxes… basically, whatever he can get his hands on. It is not unusual to see him sitting at the table or on the floor, focused at gluing some cardboard, or taping some pieces of recycled paper.

Sometimes, his creation amazes us.

Like the one he made 2 days ago.

National Library – More Than Just Books

I love libraries.

The first time my parents allowed me to go out alone with my friends was when I was about 10.
Guess where we went? The library.

Libraries continue to be one of my favourite hangout places. Now that I have kids, I love bringing them to libraries too.

It is wonderful that there are numerous libraries all over Singapore. It is even more wonderful that these libraries offer more than just books.

1. Go Library
