I read today about a quote on homeschooling, that it is a public school at home, but rather a learning at home following schedules suit us. I AM LOVIN' IT!
Today, I am not feeling like touching any books for writing or reading after days of taking care of Jansen, my CDH-er son who was having some abdominal pain (surgery complications). Days like this drained out all of my energy — physically, mentally and emotionally.
So it becomes a whatever-happens-happens and relaxing kind of day. The boys watch some Science and Into The Nature Adventure videos on YouTube, then my eldest wanted to open the container of kinetic sand I just bought online. It was on clearance sales, so why not.
Sensory play it is!
It came with random colour, meaning you don't get to choose the colour you want since it was on clearance sales. We are glad we receive the orange colour - a neutral colour which is good for all. And it comes with all the tools and moulds and numbers and the inflatable 'pool' for you to play the kinetic sand with. All packed into his nice container. What a deal!
Let me show you the tools
Miscellaneous moulds 😋
The boys were really having fun, and I was having fun too. Really love the texture of kinetic sand, this was not the first time for me and my eldest son, but it is the first time for my youngest son. Therefore, he was still trying the feel of it as well as learning to play it. It is great to develop some sensory skills in it. I asked him to shape the sand whichever he likes and let his imagination guides him. It was awesome solid one-hour relaxing moment arouns the sand. I did not mind at all the mess, just simply sweep the sand, all done!
I start to love the idea of homeschooling because you get to be free to freedom and fun to enjoyment. Wait, what phrase I just said, haha! I WONDER TOO. I asked my son whether he wants to be homeschool. He gladly says no, because he loves to hang around with friends despite some super strict unloving teachers who beat them everyday. And I gladly receive his answer too, cause then I just need to focus on homeschooling one!
High-5 too all Steemians.
P/S: The youngest son is feeling much better today, started to eat but still can't drink alot, so we tube-feed to hydrate him. Picture for hope.
