Moshi-moshi mommies πŸ˜‰

Wish you were in good condition.

This week’s experiment is another old classic which is still a lot of fun: Happy, “Dancing Raisins“.

My 3 lil kiddies *hugs πŸ˜‰ *

Now that I think of it, it seems that most of the science tricks I did as a kid have become OLD classics.


Things You’ll Need:

Let’s make some raisins boogie!

Step by step guide

Big bro KiruaMi-cHan~

Big sis ReiHi-cHan~

Some of the raisins suddenly float upwards through the soda. When they reach the top, they sink again.

Soon, the raisins are dancing up and down in the glass.

What is going on? Watch carefully and you should be able to figure it out.

Why it happened (explain to your toddler):

What happens? Can you guess why the raisins bob to the surface?
The baking soda reacted with vinegar to produce carbon dioxide gas.
This gas will collect on the uneven surfaces on the raisins.
When enough gas has collected, it will actually lift the raisins to the surface (kind of like little tiny parachutes) where the gas is then released into the air.
With the gas now gone, the raisins will sink back to the bottom where the process begins anew.

We have seen this experiment done with uncooked macaroni, but we find that raisins collect more bubbles and they are a lot more fun to eat πŸ˜‰

You might try different kinds of soda. Soda with more fizz will cause the raisins to react more.

Don’t forget to try this project with your toddler!

Teach Your Child How to Do Laundry at An Early Age

Wish you were in the pink of health πŸ˜‰

For this week updates, we would like to contribute on Homeschool Chores; doing laundry with your little ones.

Teaching your child to do laundry is a worthwhile process.

Involving toddlers in the everyday care of the home and of belongings teaches responsibility, builds self-esteem, and lightens the load for Mom and Dad *Alhamdulillah*.

The art and science of caring for clothes is not learned in one day.

Having several years to teach your child the geometry, the chemistry and the satisfaction of getting clothes ready to wear again is a good thing. Because we all wear clothes, everyone in the family needs to know how to do laundry! πŸ˜€

Some folks might think this sounds cruel.Β  I even had a family member say, and it was said with that tone, β€œYou mean to tell me that at 1 months old, KiruaMi-cHan does his own laundry?”

Yep.Β  Absolutely. And I’m pretty damn proud of it *Alhamdulillah*.

Teaching toddlers responsibility is easier said than done.

And saying it doesn’t work. Hands-on participation does.

KiruaMi-cHan; smile~

Although I have not conquered my personal laundry struggles *aha, you got me!*, I felt thankful that I have work-on the area of child involvement in laundry for quite sometime.

Believe me, you can teach them how to do the laundry in a way that is relatively painless.

With a bit of patience, you’ll soon have an extra pair of hands helping you in the laundry room. Your child will be thrilled that you’re giving them some responsibility.


Let share some of tips on β€œHow to Teach Your Child Do Laundry at An Early Ageβ€œ:

Things You’ll Need:

Superb helper: ReiHi-cHan~

A good place to start is with letting your child dispose of worn or soiled garments by placing them in a basket. Provide each child with their own container.

Step by step Guide:

Eagerness: Lil helper, YunaFi-cHan

Great job bro! πŸ˜‰

May you have a happy time with your little angel this weekend.

May Allah swt blessed your sweet family. Amin~

Alhamdulillah, I had delivered our 4th baby on 28th July 2008 πŸ˜‰

Welcome to the world my precious HidE-cHan (it’s a girl!), may Allah s.w.t bless you. Amin.

I’m totally lighthearted, grateful to Allah s.w.t, thankful to my dear hubby, my KiruaMi-cHan, my ReiHi-cHan, my YunaFi-cHan and everyone out there whom prayed for both of us *gazillion thanks, you’re so kind! hugs*.

Thank you so much, I’m truly appreciate it.

Here’s a quick photo updates for those anxious to see our sweetie:

Close-Up: Lil HidE-cHan πŸ˜€

Take a sprinkling of fairy dust,
An angel’s single feather,
Also a dash of love and care,
Then mix them both together.
Add a sentiment or two,
A thoughtful wish or line,
A touch of stardust, a sunshine ray…
It’s a recipe, for a Baby Girl truly fine.

To our loyal blog readers: May Allah s.w.t bless your beloved family too.

Amin πŸ˜‰
