An afternoon at the Singapore Art Museum (7 June 2011)

We went to the Singapore Art Museum earlier this month and had an afternoon of fun there with Alicia. Visiting museums is part and parcel of a homeschooling curriculum so we thought it’d be great to start bringing her… Besides, it’s Children’s Season so kids below 6 get free entry and somehow I got free entry too… hmmm… 🙂

We started with watching a 30min compilation of short video animations (suitable for 2 years and above). After that we took a couple of videos of her ‘dressing up’ the pictures in the Dress Up Room and she particularly liked to put on (and take off) the decorations of the big ‘cake’ in the same room. (no photos of this unfortunately)…

There are a couple of hands-on activities we did there:

(a) making a 3D fruit:

Handicraft with daddy..

The glue was truly hard to squeeze out!

The 3D fruits visitors made (and exchanged for real ones)

After awhile, she got bored as the task was too difficult so she went to draw on the ‘trees’ in the same room while hubby and I busied ourselves putting the pear together…

Here’s the completed fruit:

Off it was to the next activity:

(b) stenciling/ colouring

This station offered two activity sheets: stenciling and colouring. She chose stenciling first…

then she bashfully went to ask for a second activity sheet… 🙂

It’s been a long while since we last went to the art museum… the last time we went was when I was pregnant with Alicia!

This is Alicia’s first trip to a musuem and we’re so glad that she enjoyed herself… coz just seeing and knowing that she is happy, makes our day 🙂
