Easter fun at Forest Hill

Today we visited the clubhouse at our estate to participate in some planned Easter children's games.

Tirzah and her friend Anna burned a lot of energy on the jumping castle.

Keegan raced the timer in a cup-stacking game.

This activity required steady hands and precision to roll a ping pong ball down two parallel strings and into a cup to receive a prize.

Jemilla sat at the craft table and planted some seeds into an egg filled with soil.

This was a popular game requiring contestants to step on a board to shoot a ball out of a cup onto a vertical target board.

At home this week we have been indulging in some homemade Easter treats.

"Empty tomb" pancakes

Easter nests

Next Easter we will be able to eat hot cross buns again. After four years away from home, the children have forgotten what they taste like!

Easter fun at playgroup

On Tuesday I took a personal day off work, so I had the pleasure of attending playgroup with Tirzah. We met the other families at Shatin for some special Easter activities.

This was a Christian object lesson with plastic eggs that spelled out "Easter".

Tirzah helped with a little song.

Every child was given a paper bag.

We listened to instructions about the Easter egg hunt. Of course Tirzah was an expert, having done a hunt at church just on the weekend!

We didn't keep the plastic eggs, just the goodies inside, such as this sticker.

After the hunt we enjoyed a picnic lunch and play together.

Despite the gloomy weather, there was a great turn-out on the day!

Have you ever seen...?

...a vending machine that dispenses stockings?

Easter fun at church

This morning the girls and I went to KIBC for some Easter activities. First on the agenda were some games...

Then there was a movie and story...

And a simple craft...

Snack time...

Then the requisite Easter egg hunt to finish the activities.

ICS Jazz Cafe 2013

This month we enjoyed a night out as a family at Jazz Cafe. We attended the same event two years ago but this year free swing dance lessons were offered before the show. I took these photos of Jemilla and her handsome partner doing the Charleston.

The ensembles, choirs, and jazz bands varied in their skills, but we loved it all!

This was our favourite song of the night.

Dance class

Tirzah recently had the opportunity to attend a dance class in Ma On Shan one morning with her playgroup friends. Musical instruments, dress-up clothes, scarves, ribbons, and lots of music...of course she loved every minute of it! We laughed when she reported that her teacher was called "Miss Lasagne" (Miss Sonia). Thank you to the ladies who took the photos for me...I wish I could have been there!
