Parents who bring their children out to dinner dates with friends, please raise your hands. We do. Always. In a perfect scenario, we would have conversations with friends, small conversations, laughing, wine… that’s in my dream. Ha! Remember how many times you had to look for markers, crayons and caps under the table; or needed the person seated at the next table to help you out? Can you imagine my joy when I saw these activities craft booklets in Muji stores?! Well, I know there are such activities booklets from bookstores, I had seen them. But these aren’t quite the same. The illustrations are creative, the idea is creative, it’s simulating and it allows the child to use her imaginations.
This first book “Handicraft Book Picture Book Face Note Vol. 2” are filled with pages of blank faces/fruits/animals faces. Simply let your imagination go wild with stickers of eyes, noses and lips!
Or you could get creative with “Handicraft Book Animals Fav Food Stickers“. You get pages of animals or humans with their mouth wide opened, waiting for you to ‘feed’ them with stickers of food and fruits. There is a page-spread featuring a 2-tier cake that you could decorate it with candles, meringue, fruit slices, etc.
This last book is better for older toddlers as it requires much more fine motor skill, and I don’t think it’s suitable to do it over dinner. But it’s great as an activity at home! Pop them out and start building!
