Philatelic Fun...

We made a trip to the Philatelic Museum recently... and discovered great new learning opportunities for the kids... although they aren't very into the history or stories behind the stamps they sure had a lot of fun running around the place...

If you wish to plan for an outing with your little ones this coming June school hols, you may want to consider this place... they have lots of child-friendly activities for the kids to explore and discover and play with too... *smile*

I'll let the pictures tell the story...
Letter boxes that come in all shapes and sizes...
Can never forget this mail scooter... oooh... so nostalgic *smile*
Stamps to be collected within the entire museum... you could purchase a passport at a dollar each to collect all the stamps at different stations within the museum.

Stamps produced after the movies... Harry Potter stamps anyone?


The Super Heroes hall...

History about our forefathers and how they communicate with their family/relatives who are in China, when they've arrived here in Singapore...
The kids having fun with the clogs and other manipulatives/props/toys within the Heritage Room...

This year is the year of the Ox, a room especially created for this... everything about the cow that you can learn about, you'll find it in this room... there is even a corner with story books in the theme of Cow for you and your little one to cozy up and learn together...
Know which mode of delivery is the fastest? Tim had his hands-on experience in this as he learn about each mode of delivery of mail...
The Post Office section where the kids learn about how to purchase stamps, weigh the letter, pasting of stamps, mailing the letter and collecting of mail by the postman etc... the entire process can be learn through this very dramatic way of play... *smile*




The kids had the most fun in this Post Office room... definitely giving this place a 2 thumbs up for kids to play and learn... *smile*
