This is another great set of summer activities we did for the letter J yesterday! J is joyful and my children are a testament to that. They had so much fun at the National Forest Adventure farm.
I love Japan and have been there three times. The first couple of times were for my 21st and 22nd birthdays. The third time, I went there with my husband for our second honeymoon after leaving the children with my mother in Singapore.
So I showed both my children my photo album from the Japan trips. Looking back at those photos, I really miss those travelling days.
We cycled into town and bought a jar of strawberry jam from the vintage trade show. We don’t use jam too much but I wanted to give the children a little treat with this home made jam so we are having jam sandwiches!
J for Jelly
I made almond jelly with fruit. Jelly is the best pudding for the hot summer. Mr K preferred to drink jelly out of the pouch.
J for Jelly Fish
We made paper plate jelly fish. You will need: paper plates (cut into half), colour tissue paper (cut in 1.5 cm by 10 cm), glue, marker pen, decorative materials.
- Draw a face on the paper plate. Or you could use googly eyes, foam or felt to make a face.
- Stick the strips of coloured tissue paper on the back of the plate.
Ms C loves Disney shows so at her request, we watched Aladdin much to Mr K’s distaste.
J for Jump
Both children loved jumping up and down on the bouncing pillow at the National Forest Adventure farm.
Next is the letter K. Mr K is very excited already as all he thinks it’s his own name. Well, do check out tomorrow for our letter K!
