The coming of June marks Phase 1 of the easing of Circuit-breaker measures. As we bring along the lessons the past few months have taught us, let us move towards a New Normal - one where we have truly re-wired the way we look at parenting, education, play and learning.
Here are the themes for June, as we continue to support you and your child's learning journey:
Explorers Box (approx. 12-18 months old)
Theme: Purple House
Feature play: Introduce your little Explorer to the colours of the rainbow (which include purple!) with the Rainbow Arch set and the cheekiest clockwork mouse.
Sensory play: Let's work those coordination skills in our Purple House by using the purple-licious utensils set and purple purple pom poms as "food"! Can they balance the pom poms?
Colour play: Using the tape resist / no-mess method, your little Explorer will paint the perfect Purple House.
Discoverers Box (approx. 19-24 months old)
Starter: Warm up your child's literacy and recognition skills! With colours, an adorable carpark mat, toy cars, and some little matching activities.
Sensory Play: With the Cars and Traffic sensory bin, have your child explore different literacy and pre-writing boosting activities with the traffic lights, coffee funnel car tunnel, traffic lines and more.
Creative Play: Your little Discoverer will learn how to sequentially create a car craft by painting the car cut-outs, crafting the wheels, and forming the parts together!
Adventurers Box (2-3 years old)
Starter: Observing shapes with the nuts and bolts stamping activity will aid in shape recognition, while the bolts and screw activity will work those fine motor skills.
Sensory Play: Using the "cement mix" as sensory base, your little Adventurer will put their imagination, creativity and cognitive development to the test while they attempt to coordinate construction!
Creative Play: The very tactile cement mixer also makes as a great craft material - watch as your little Adventurer turns it into a sand mixer!
Bloomers Box (3 years and up)
Starter: Being able to recognise and name the set of tools on hand will not only be helpful to your child's literacy, but also to further tasks that require coordination. At the same time, the tools measuring activity will also be a great starter for math exploration!
Sensory Play: The sensory play setup will represent a construction site, where a myriad of lessons in safety, engineering and more can happen. Try out the bilateral coordination activity through using the less dominant + dominant hand to complete one of the tasks!
Creative Play: Time to let the ruler and marker shine their bilateral functions as your child creates the funkiest pop art with lines, circles and geometrical figures.
