Art Night

On friday, we went to an "art exhibition" where Jakob's canvas art was displayed. It was an interesting experience to attend an event where my child had participated for the first time. I can still remember how my parents came to my art exhibition night at my kindergarten. I would have looked for my pictures from that night if my parents were living nearby. It is amazing how quickly time has passed and it was my turn to attend such an event just few days ago.

his imagination blossom

He loves drawing nowadays. His grip has improved a lot, and I am guessing it's helping him to draw more fine datils(?) rather than big strokes or circles. Also started using different colours.

He was quite busy this afternoon with his little toy police car. I noticed that he kept on putting the car through his pants. When I asked him what he was doing, he said "Tunnel!" Wow, I was impressed with his imagination. I told him I could make him a tunnel, and he got very excited. After scanning around the house to find some material for Jakob's tunnel, I realised the Lego blocks would be perfect.

I made him a simple structure that would look like a tunnel. Then Jakob added more blocks and built it up higher and bigger. As soon as he heard the front door opening later on, he yelled out, "Dad! A tunnel!"
