Eco-mmunity Event Recap at Frog Hollow Neighborhood House

Last weekend on April 19th, we attended the Eco-mmunity Space Celebration event held at Frog Hollow Neighborhood House. It was a children's event organized by the youth in the community.  We got to learn about recycling and reusing materials to make new things.  It wasn't very busy as there were only a few kids. It was fun though.

The adults got free Starbucks coffee. Good for me to keep me awake.

Brandon had fun with the egg hunt in the playground.

Making things from recycled materials we picked out from the boxes.

We still had a lot of tickets left. We could've used it and made more recycled crafts.

Little Junior Photographer at Wedding Event

So our little one, Brandon, had been following my footsteps in photography since he was 3 years old. We've been calling him our little junior photographer. Over the weekend, we attended a friend's wedding and Brandon had the chance to capture some moments of the Bride and Groom.

Migalolo Ocean eBook {App Review}

I was recently introduced to a new musical eBook app.  My little one, Brandon, and I always enjoy fun, interactive story apps together. We like this eBook because we get to learn about the ocean, the animals that live in the ocean, and everything about marine biology. Whales and dolphins were always Brandon's favorite. It's very educational and I like the upbeat music.

Migalolo Ocean eBook by Siu lui shirley Choi

This new app from award-winning composer Shirley Choi invites children of all ages to experience and learn about the ocean in a fun, interactive way.

Migalolo features nine chapters which supplies over ninety minutes of educational, musical fun! Sing along with original songs as you watch rich graphics that show off scores of diverse sea creatures in their colourful undersea environment.

Kids will learn about important conservation topics, the science of the seas, and what they can do to help protect the Earth’s oceans. They will meet new friends like Henry a boy who is turned into a dolphin, his pet cat Iko, a wise turtle named Yai, and tons more. Swim along with Henry and Iko as they explore and meet all kinds of characters from rapping trout to sassy seabirds!

This app explores many important ocean topics, but does so in a fun and engaging way. The catchy tunes will have kids singing about the seas as they learn all about the ocean and the wonderful creatures who live there.
