Chen still not able to take in the coloring by her own, mostly assisted or done by me. But to expel the coloring to the water is quite easy for her.

Once the "ocean" is ready, then mummy take out DIY sailboat for her.

Hmmm, our ocean maybe too small?! :p
或许,我们的海洋太小了! :p

Chen tried to put on some stones on her sailboat.

Before cleaning up, we do color grouping for those small stones. Chen can never focus on similar activities like this, but this round is an exception. She almost completed all.

We spent 1 hour ++ for this activity and Chen really enjoy it! You can try this ocean box with your on hand material (can put in marble, or put in sand, just modify with what you have will do!) , i believe your little one will enjoy as well!

这个游戏晨可以玩上一个小时多哦!不一定要用彩色石头,你可以用沙子,弹珠或任何适合的物品代替。赶快试试吧,因为连妈妈也觉得好好玩哦! :)
