The one week break in September seemed so short! Our days were fully occupied and though it can be tiring, we had fun!
Allow me to list down the activities that we had, so that we could have some form of reference for future school break. 😊
:: Tennis Camp
F went for a three-day tennis camp and she enjoyed it. We should be going for another camp for the next school hols and this time round, I must remember to sign up for those that are under ActiveSG. Too bad, Dan is too small for the camp otherwise, I would have signed both of them up!
:: Mooncake Theme Playdate
One of the Dayre moms kindly invited us to her cosy home and even planned a mooncake making session for the kids. They had a first-hand experience in making those goodies and then shortly after, they sent the snowskin mooncake to their Grandma. 👵🏼
I also hosted a mooncake playdough making session but all I did was to open up my place and maybe prepare the ingredients for Takoyaki party. The other moms were hard at work entertaining the kids. 🤣
:: Clip and Climb
F had a play date with her classmates and they went to Clip and Climb at OTH for 90 minutes of climbing. The kids seemed to know what to do and kept trying the different walls. It’s my first time at Clip and Climb and being one who is afraid of heights, I had my reservation. In the end, I decided to try one wall and love it. Just don’t look down. 😅
:: Playground hunting
The kids woke up at 5.30am one day and as I walked into the dining room and questioned why they were up so early, “We are going playground hunting!”
So it was. We went to the far end of Singapore and explored a few playgrounds within that vicinity. It was exciting, to try out various themed playgrounds, hoping on and off the car to discover more.
We could do just that for every morning. Vitamin D is much needed, you see.
:: Siew Mai Making at Nanjing Impressions
I didn’t know anything about this until a mom friend asked if there’s any interested parties who might want to go for this. So, I just put the kids’ names down and turned up! Although the session was short and the kids were just required to make two Siew Mai, it was just fun having them put on the traditional costumes and getting them to wrap the filling.
:: Exercising with friends
By now, you would have realised that we would definitely factor in outdoor activities to get the body moving when we have the time. So when some moms asked to go to the East Coast Park, we were more than happy to oblige.
We probably had more activities that I couldn’t jot down for now. All I can say is that it’s a very busy September school hols indeed!
