Weekend Activities

Remember I say before that Dadi always complains that my son toys are too many and request me to stop buying anymore when I’m on my biz trip?

But, guess what? When I’m alone at home during weekend with 2 boys, it is really useful to have different kind of toys to occupy my prince’s free time. They will play on their own most of the time, of course, half of the time, screaming calling Momi for helps like “Momi, you see Jonathan. He doesn’t want to play with me” “Momi, you see Iz. He take away my toys”……Never ending.

The best part is, the outcome:

Jona & Iz just love their LEGO blocks so much. When they play with their LEGO, they are so creative. So far, I only teach them how to build house, farm animals, car etc. But, not so advance like Dinosaurs, etc. And, the second time, they play, they able to build house even better than me, and start making ‘swimming pool’, bathroom, set house alarm, make farm animal, etc..

This is Iz creation. His 'house' got many doors, windows, and bathroom with alarm system. Got tv set as well, and several beds for people to sleep and sheeps to sleep too.....
This is Jona creation, rebuild it second time after being 'destroy' by Iz when Iz is angry.....half way build(still under construction, I gues)

Doesn’t it look so nice & creative?

And, when they are bored with LEGO blocks, they will start drawing on piece of paper ~ anything that flash on their mind. Jona really able to draw better than Iz, and always end up, he is helping Iz with the drawing. But, before he helps Iz, he will say “Why you don’t know how to draw ar? If you don’t want to draw and keep ask me, then, why Momi need to send you to Art class?”
Fully occupied my fridge space with their creative drawing ~ crab, tree, flower, kite, sun, heart, honey in jar, apple, etc...(upper part belong to Iz and below part is Jona drawing)...

Seeing how their occupied their free time on weekend, I guess I better buy more stuffs esp LEGO blocks/drawing apparatus for them, what do you think, worth my investment on previous toys hor? I think it is time for me to go for some shopping since I have more free time when on biz trip rather than at home. Wondering whether LEGO will be cheap here in Oz/NZ compare to M'sia?
