Show and tell: Memory Project

The June holidays are typically a long break for Primary going school children or for some younger kids, their schools would be closed during this period as well. As the Bub goes to full-day childcare, her centre is open almost a good part of the year. That said, her June’s Show and Tell is centered around what the child did for the month of June. Submission of photos for the project would suffice but I wanted to make something memorable for the kid while she did her story-telling to her friends.

I guess June is also extra special since it’s her birthday month so after an idea suggested by Mama Gwen to draw a cake and then get the Bub to stick the photos of what she did using the stickers created by the Sticker Maker from Stickie Mail, I decided to embark on a cake craft project for the Bub instead (another idea seeded by the bf@w).

Majority of the cake craft photo project can be sourced from Daiso, the trusty shop to head to if you needed to get craft materials readily. As the Bub’s favourite Disney Princess is Belle, I deliberately chose the styrofoam bricks in blue and yellow, stuck them together to form her Belle Birthday Cake.

For embellishments or rather the icing on her cake, I got a box of these decorative pom pom balls and basically stuck them around the cake. The Bub helped me out here and we had fun coming up with the colour scheme – pink, followed by white, yellow, etc, on how her craft birthday cake should look. It’s not easy to get these decorative balls to be stuck o the styrofoam boards, I think I must have used up a bottle of craft glue for this project alone!

I also printed some photos (passport sized) so that it would fit nicely into the sticker maker. The Bub helped to then stick these stickers all over her craft cake. As we stuck the photo memories on the cake, I also took the opportunity to ask the Bub what are some of the actions or the people she hung out with in the pictures to jolt her memory a little.

I guessed that worked and looks like she was all excited about sharing her tales and adventures with her little friends. 🙂

Try it.. this does make quite a fun bonding project to do with your child.
