The Impact of Artsy Actions in Child Development
The creativity of the little one will be greatly encouraged through artistic endeavors but the benefits are so much more than that, throw a glance over the following ideas and find out.

Improve and Develop Motor Skills
Scribbling, drawing and sketching alike do help the children embrace their creativity and imagination, encouraging their dreams thus creating a very positive environment for them. The whole suite of actions that involve motion though will help them with more than that, holding the pencil or the paintbrush and using them helps them develop their fine motor skill. This improves with practice and naturally, at a certain point, reaches perfection, imagination being the only one that dictates the terms on the piece of paper then.


Sketching and Drawing as Foundation for Language Skills
At an early age and stage pretty much any gesture that the little one makes on paper will be accompanied by a story, by an explication and an association with the item by which he was inspired. This will help him develop his language skills, it will help them learn shapes, colors and in time even the ability to follow step by step processes by his own. Make sure you`re there to help him in these endeavors.

Decision Making Skills
Art is powerful. Beyond coloring and drawing the performing arts have an immense role to play in the decision making process. The child learns what to choose in terms of crayons, paper, what to choose from multiple sources of inspiration and how to match these till he`s satisfied. The association between cause and effect is also relevant; by noticing how a different color influences the drawing he can make changes that in the long run will greatly help him despite their un-important nature at this stage.

Tips and Tricks
Encouraging the young artist in every child is very important. The following tips and tricks should help in this regard.

Do not critique at all. No critique is allowed as it can kill their creativity swiftly. Communication is key; ask them questions in a friendly chatty manner to surface the true intention of the drawing, he or she will be glad to tell you everything about it, be patient.

Encouragement is the key to confidence. In any attempt no matter how small, encourage them to express themselves.

Always be prepared for their creative juices. You never know when they`ll want their crayons to draw something pretty, always have a small pack of coloring, drawing utensils on you.

If they decide that the furniture might become an ideal canvas do have patience with the little ones, a new art medium might be far more valuable than a piece of furniture. To avoid this make sure that there is always a new way to draw, to color, children do get bored easily. In this regard chalkboard or an immense white wallpaper can be great additions to one`s home.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
