Art Workshop

XY went for a 3-hour art workshop organised by her kindy on Thursday. She made and decorated a box. When I fetched her home, she told me she wanted to bring it along on our holiday - to put the shells she's collected from the beach. And when I told her the box will get squashed during the long journey (it's made of manila cardboard, quite flimsy actually), she said she'll hold them herself. Looks like she's had it all thought out. :D

She's also painted an apron. I thought she painted the one she used. But she was given a new apron to paint. The teacher drew the picture on it, then she painted it herself.

~ fruity apron and ladybird box ~

For RM38, she got to have some fun, a box and an apron. And I got a peaceful and quiet morning. :D

Hi Slavemom, once a kid finds something that intrigues or interests them, you get a short holiday, ha ha.
Thats a beautiful work of art from your kid...they love to colour things and can be very creative too. Well done.
You have a great week, Lee.

RM38 is pretty cheap. My gal's kindy charged RM160 for a 5-day workshop, 3 hours per day.
Where will you all be going for your vacation? I'm sure your kids are getting all excited, eh?

Kristie, the workshop was conducted at her kindy.
