In my world: Singapore, my city

Countdown to Singapore NDP 2011 Day 3 – This is not technically art and craft, but it is DS’s interpretation of our city state, using wooden blocks. 

Our little countdown series is aimed around setting the kids thinking about different aspects of their country and home, and representing that using the resources around them. Call it our mini home version of the National Education programme, ha! 🙂

I love how he has arranged the tall buildings and the road running through.  With the bridges and flyovers, and the structure positioned in that particular spot on the carpet, don’t you think it’s quite a close approximation to Singapore’s central business district?

He completed this just before bedtime, and after it was done, none of us were ready to tear it down to store the blocks back into their bag.  So we carefully moved the whole structure, block by block, to a corner in the room, so no one would accidentally knock it over in the dark.

And there it stayed till mid-morning. 😉

Sometimes in the middle of cleaning the rooms, I discover little gems left behind by the children. This Friday series was started with the intention of celebrating the imagination and creativity in a young child’s world…and hoping that it’ll bring a little ray of inspiration and joy to your day, as it does mine.
