Something We’ve Learned

It’s been roughly four consecutive days that I had a hard time blogging due to issues with our ISP (Internet Service Provider). The system was down and I needed to go to an internet cafe to write post for A to Z challenge for I hate to miss a day.

I am reminded by their activity last year. It was really fun, they bond and learned something new all at the same time. We discovered an activity that would kill time and unleash the artist in them… LOOM BAND MAKING

This activity really measured their patience and determination. Since this is new to them, watching a tutorial in YouTube did a great help.

It’s amazing to see the loom bands they made. I’ve seen how elated they were after they finished their project. I am so proud of their work:

 

This coming summer vacation, we have so many things in mind but our top priority is to explore their creativity with cross stitching. Whatever happens, the most important is the moments in between.
