|My best attempt at snowflake|
It is that time again. Time for unplanned meals, bedtimes, visits and travels. Time for sluggish demeanour like heavy eyelids, almost inaudible communications and a complete change in the predictable rhythms of the day. Yes, it is that time when high achievers, highly disciplined and time bound, school going children switch to living like zombies because school is out!
Such drastic change was expected and is quite welcomed in my house because they deserve this break. It is also good for stay-at-home-moms like me because I will no longer need to keep a watchful eye on the clock which seemed to tick faster and constantly screamed at me to; "cook faster, shower quicker, forget about tying my hair and Go! Go! get in the car, you are already late to pick them up from school!" Isn't it just great to be free from that school run rut?
School holidays are great time to rejuvenate and recharge by doing everything that is not school related. Forget tuitions and encourage children to learn through play. Allow them to go out and play, jump in muddy puddles, catch tadpoles, play badminton with their neighbourhood children (whom they hardly met during school days) or go explore own backyards for worms, snails and other bugs.
Variation is the key in keeping children occupied during school breaks, so they will not bug you. If you are not an enemy of the electronic gadgets, let them select a few shows that they could watch when the weather does not permit outdoor games or when you run out of ideas to entertain them or simply need a coffee break, alone.
Since they are going to be glued to the idiot box for a few hours, you might as well make it worth their time by coaxing them into watching Disney's Fa-la-la-lidays giveaway shows and be in the running to win a holiday trip for four to Hong Kong Disneyland and some other Frozen treats.
All you need to do is watch shows lined up on Disney Channel (Astro channel 615), from 14 November to 14 December 2014 and look out for Frozen-themed contest question of the day, which could be:
- guess the number of times Olaf appeared on screen
- count the number of falling snowflakes
- guess the word
Once you have your answer, go online to submit your answer (as many times as you want) and be in the chance to winning one of the weekly grand prizes, a trip for four, to Hong Kong Disneyland to meet Princess Elza and Anna in person or Frozen gift packs which are up for grabs, daily.
So what are you waiting for? Head over to http://home.disney.com.my/tv/ for more information.
