preview / press release and not the workshop since it clashed with Kay's nap time. Now that Kay and Zen are older, I was hoping that hubby is able to take care of both kids while I attend the workshop. :-)
If you did not attend it last year, you may want to consider going this year. The workshop is targeting parents and expectant mothers who are interested to learn how about children development through play. They will be sharing the benefits of play through 5 development stages ie Sensory Stimulation, Sitting & Reaching, Speech Development, On the Go and Walker & Rider.
The workshop will be held on Saturday June 16, 2012 at the Grand Ballroom, Empire Hotel Subang. The one ajoining Empire Shopping Gallery. You can check the location map here. Time would be from 10:00am till 1:30pm. The price of the workshop is RM60 per adult and you will also get a goodie bag that's worth RM100 too. You can book your seats through firstname.lastname@example.org or call 03-7803 5310 / 012-292 1378. Speaking of which, I should go and book my ticket soon before I forget!
Children are allowed to "attend" the workshop FOC though they must be supervised. Hmmm, I probably won't be bringing the kids there as I am sure to be distracted if they were there.
For this workshop, Fisher-Price had once again invited Ms Carrie E Lupoli, who is also the Founder of Live & Learn (Singapore). I'm glad they did. She's very friendly, patient and has a great sense of humor. I guess you need lots of that in her line of work :-) When I met her last year, she came across as very knowledgeable and was able to give good advises. So I was hoping that I am able to attend the workshop this year.
With active kids like mine, I am all for the idea of learning through play. Both Zen and Kay are not the type who would sit down quietly and do coloring or listen to a story. In fact, they don't like to do coloring unlike lots of kids because they said it takes "too long"! And their idea of bedtime story is to act it out instead of just listening to me reading to them... So these days, bedtime stories are impromptu and very animated.
And I'm running out of ideas of how to use play in helping them develop. Which is why I am pretty much glad to hear that the workshop is here again. Looking forward to getting some tips on the activities and tools to incorporate interactive play with children.
