We found ourselves spending a fun weekend at Caboodle, first was at Dubai Mall branch for Freaky Friday. Caboodle’s Freaky Friday is a monthly themed activity where children ages 18 months to 8 years old gets the opportunity to explore and discover a topic thru play. For the month of October it is all about science themed crafts and activities. Under the supervision of a friendly Caboodle staff, kids got to work on fun science experiments – How to make slime, Lava lamp and Ocean bottle. Mo of Curiosity Lab showed more fun science activities much to the kids delight. LittleMiss Chloe was so interested that she volunteered! Science activities with Curiosity Lab was the highlight that Friday night. For more information on Caboodle’s future events, click here. * We were guest’s of Caboodle, Dubai Mall for this event.
Lately, my LittleOnes are into making slime – first one with borax and this time with chia seeds. The look on their face when everything comes together is priceless, it’s like magic happening right before their eyes. Johnson’s surprised us a gift basket of their newest Pure Protect Kids range. To the kids delight it included an exploration recipe booklet and one of the recipe is this slime dough we are sharing with you today. I was not able to take photos during playtime, our hands were sticky and play area so messy.
Oink… oink… One day, LittleMiss woke up and declared she love’s Peppa Pig. We have not found one item in the store here, it is expected since we are in a Muslim country. Daddy C went on a business trip to London and only found a Peppa Pig plush toy at the airport before he boarded the plane and it was the last piece. He found this construction playhouse set (similar to Lego) at Toys R Us near his hotel at Houston, without hesitation he bought and had to hand carry back home for the LittleMiss.
Mother’s day is celebrated in the UAE on March 21st. In the Philippines, mother’s day is celebrated every 2nd Sunday of May. For this craft we made use of basic shapes of circle, hearts, triangle, and square. Things you need: Paper plates Cut-out shapes: hearts, oval, square, triangle Glue Scissors Washi tapes Assorted embelishments How to make Cupcake on Paper craft: As you can see on the first photo above you have the option to stick all shapes or by shape. Then design the way you like it. I provided LittleMiss similar size of Washi tapes and gave her instructions on where to stick. She then dab a glue on the “cake” part and designed with embelishments. To highlight the shapes we traced the corners with marker. Lastly, make it more special by writing your special message to Mommy. Bonus: Mommy won’t put on an extra inch in her waist 🙂
