Artful Lil' Hands - Wobble Wobble Penguin

Birds of the same feathers month... we are into Penguins this week... due to the school holidays, we have additional guests and a new member joining us today... and it was quite a HUGE turn up... we have 13 adults & 16 kids... *grin*

Besides the regulars (we almost had a full attendance today!), some of the mommies have brought along their older children to join in the fun too... and hence, it was a real eleventh hour decision to host the PG at the function room of Jenny's place.
Wonderful Jenny, had the kids engaged with loads of games and colouring activities. Look at how engross each of them was...

Playgroup started with some music and movement... we sang a cute penguin song complete with body and hand actions... thank goodness for great help from Mommy Paw Chuen and Mommy Evelyn joining me in leading this segment... today we sang acapella *smile*
See how happy the kiddos were... while singing along with us... *wink*
Mommy Jenny led the story reading today...and she was great at prompting the children with questions to engage them and keep them interested...
The kids had an opportunity to work on a penguin cut & paste craft...
And look at this gorgeous Penguin lapbook...credit goes to Mommy Ai Lei... who offered to help me on this. She's really a god-sent... all paper crafts and lapbook elements were all prepared and done by her single-handedly...
We had yummy (as commented by most of the Mommies) Macadamia nut & Choco chip muffins... courtesy of yours truly... freshly baked this morning... it's really gratifying to watch every single one of the muffins being devoured completely! muahahaha
The pool was simply too inviting that most of the kiddos wanted to have a dip in it... and Tim was kicking a fuss when I told him he didn't have swimming trunks to go for a dip... he just helped himself by sitting by the pool side and had his shirt and shorts soaking wet *faint*

It was yet another fun-filled and happy day for the kids... ;)
