Kids' Nature Walk

Nature walks one of our favourite activities... and I'm just grateful that we are still able to experience some "man made" nature amidst the concrete jungle in our neighbourhood...

Took a short bus ride with the kids and my helper to the Toa Payoh Garden today and allowed the kids to run loose... and they sure had loads of fun... as this is a change from their regular walks by the playground down our block...
Tim was fascinated by the cat tail and wanted to feel how it's like to hold the plant in his hand...
We observe the tiny plants growing on the tree trunk... Tim was absolutely curious...
Little Missy was captivated by these pretty little red flowers (for the life of me, I don't even know the name of this plant)... I allowed her the time to observe the flowers on her own... for once this was something that could hold her attention for more than a minute... *smile*
Silly shadow games... Tim found his own fun by watching his own shadow as he flung his hands up in the air...
He's telling me how big the man made water fountain was... look at his animated hand gesture...
Although we didn't stay at the garden for too long, the kids sure had loads of fun running, exploring, discovering, observing and learning... we shall do more of such nature walks at this garden then...

Are you a member of singaporemotherhood forum? There's a gathering this Saturday @ Lrg 7 if not mistaken, 10am. It's organised by one of the forum mommies. If you have time maybe you want to bring Tim/Joyce there? I cant make it because I have visitors this weekend. :( But would really love to catch up with you one of these days. Lorong 5 is walking distant to the hub? Maybe we can meet at the park again? :D

Can email your contact to yvonnelow@hotmail.com?
