Putting aside the monthly theme, we engaged the children with a holiday programme on ‘Do-It-Yourself Toys’ where we seek cooperation from parents to bring in household materials like toilet rolls, tissue boxes, left over paints, clothes pegs, and scraps of paper which we can recyce and reuse them in creating the toys!
Making DIY toys not only created an awareness to protect our living space through recyling and reusing the materials, we also hope to instill values of appreciation for children to understand that we can always make simple playing materials with anything instead of spending money to purchase expensive toys in stores. With the toys that children created by themselves, they will achieve a sense of accomplishment and learn to cherish and treasure
the toys better.
