Some mummy friends have been asking me about what I intend to bring to keep little man busy during the Korea trip. Here are more details. But planning being planning, it doesn’t always work exactly how we plan. And if yours is a girl, the things that you would bring will be quite different as well.
This Boogie Board was purchased by Hubby quite some time ago. In my opinion, it is one of the best purchase for little man. We use this to draw for him, he learns how to draw on this board as well. We also use this board to teach him alphabets, words and numbers. Somehow it catches his attention better than flash cards.
2. Stickers & Sticker Book
3. Coloured Sticks
oing to have purchased them from Taobao. Now just waiting for the goods to reach Singapore. We borrowed a bag of these sticks from a fellow mummy. She pasted velcro on them, which I intended to do so as well, so that the sticks can be stacked together to form shapes. But little man cannot be bothered with the velcro. He actually likes taking them out, placing them properly one by one. I guess it is really free-play for the child. Hence I do not insist him on playing the way they were intended to be played.
4. Small puzzles
Little man is still not able to put everything in their right place. I will always need to place a pieces, but he is always happy to finish up the puzzle for me. I was rather surprised that the puzzle could engage little man. And these days, he was constantly asking to play with the puzzle.
5. Some small light-weight books
I recently bought these books from Taobao. They are light and small. The best thing is, little man loves them. I think I will bring a set along as well, just in case.
I think, generally, the things that I will bring along to engage little man must not be too bulky or heavy. Light-weight is the way to go.
Please, please do let me know if you have other great ideas. Would love to hear from you too! 🙂
