The other day, Alycia went to the cupboard in the maid’s room used to place all their new stationeries, books and toys and dug out a cool mess-free fingerpaints that their koo mah or koo koo (can’t remember who bought it) bought it for them last year.
It’s really a neat activitiy as it’s mess-free and does not stain the table, clothes, skin or anything, except that it’s pretty oily on the fingers…. but it’s non-toxic though.
The paints that are colorless but….
…the minute the paint touches the paper of the coloring book, it turns into a color. It’s really cool and amuses the gals…
The gals think that it is magical coz something that’s colorless can turn into different colors when their little fingers touched different drawings in the book.
However, this activity needs to be under adult supervision coz my 2 brats were so amused with the magical paints that they kept digging and digging on the paints with their fingers that within 10 mintues, more than half the paints were wiped off… and only 2 pages of the coloring book were colored and there are still over 20 pages in the book, which means that there would not be enough paints for the remaining pages.
Has anyone seen this fingerpaints in our local bookstores? This is bought either by my sil in New Zealand, Saipan or HK. I don’t think I’ve come across this fingerpaints here.

The other day, hubby bought Alycia and Sherilyn toys again when he went shopping without me. This always happens whenever he goes shopping without me. This time, he bought them a doctor’s set and a hairdressing set. The girls were thrilled to see the toys when daddy came home at night and started playing with the toys but after 2 days, the toys are now chucked in their toy box. I always find that buying toys for my kids are a waste of money as they would get bored with them within days. I rather spend the money on something useful like books or educational DVDs, which could be read or watched over and over again.
Alycia’s 5th birthday is just round the corner. I think the best birthday pressie to get her will be books. I love books and I always think that it’s never too early to start instilling the love for reading books in your kids. Borders.co.uk is now having discounts of up to 40% off fabulous new releases. I intend to get some Children & Education books for Alycia’s birthday. I think she will love a book on Thomas and Friends, one of her favorite cartoon characters. I won’t leave Sherilyn out of course. How can I not get her anything? There will surely be a tug of war between Alycia and Sherilyn on the birthday pressie if there is only one pressie. I think Sherilyn will love Peppa Pig’s Little Library. This title contains six delightful mini Peppa story books in a slip case. The six books together make a jigsaw! Hey, if you are looking for some books for youself or your kids, do head over to borders.co.uk to enjoy some great savings.
