The Power of MineCraft

Handicraft for kids

My boys’ latest craze : MineCraft

Similar to the times when they were crazy over Angry Birds. However, their MineCraft madness has superseded the fowls. The famous Angry Birds game was not capable enough to get my boys hooked, unlike the MineCraft game.

 

Personally, I do not like them to play MineCraft because of the motion. Well, it makes ME giddy when the screen jerks with each and every move ‘the player’ makes. So, the rule of 30mins in front of the PC or iPad is stricter than ever whenever they are playing the MineCraft game or watching the MineCraft videos.

As much as I do not like them to play it, MineCraft has also become the ultimate weapon reward!

The kids know that I am ALL OUT to get MineCraft out of their lives, so they had been EXTREMELY cooperative for the past one month! At times, they are so unbelievably obedient that I could find no reason to NOT let them take their MineCraft dope. *eyes rolled*

 

They are totally insane over it! In fact, anything related to MineCraft like the videos on YouTube, that shows how others play the game; the music videos whereby the lyrics of certain famous songs had been changed to fit the stories of MineCraft, etc.

And now, THIS!

They are addicted to printing, cutting, folding, pasting and creating their very own MineCraft paper craft.

Binbin was so INTO this MineCraft handicraft that he printed out a whole page of swords, axes, spades, arrows, etc….

You may think that MineCraft is a violent game after this, but errr… actually it is not. It is more of a a construction cum building game.

Every part of the body took so much of their time, yet their determination to complete the body was so strong, it did not waver at any point at all!

Hours of Amazing Effort! *thumbs up*

I AM ALL IN FOR THIS!
Finally, there is something about MineCraft that I LOVE TO WATCH THEM doing.

It trains their patience, their motor skills, their creativity and their concentration level too!

Gifts from Hong Kong Disneyland

Handicraft for kids

BackDated Post: 20th June 2012

It feels so wonderful to be remembered.

When my 22years long time friend, X.Y. bought gifts for my boys when she went on a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland. To be remembered and loved this way, its my boys’ good fortune.

I always love to see that ‘concentration to the max’ kind of look on my boys’ faces. So Charming!
Keatkeat had NO PROBLEM at all with this!
He did it so well and so fast!
This 8 year old’s analytical skills and motor skills have definitely improved alot over the past few months!

On the other hand, Binbin could not get it fixed.
So, his 18months older brother went over to help, since he had already completed his.
Keatkeat tried and tried for more than 15mins and it still could not be fixed! *faint*
It was past bedtime for them and Binbin was very disappointed as he watched Keatkeat played with his turtle before he went to bed.

So Allan came in to help.

For more than 30mins! Only then, was the turtle fixed.

Binbin’s first question in the morning was, “Papa is my turtle done?!”
*laugh*

Thank you X.Y. auntie for the gifts of love!
