East Coast Park Marine Cove Review

Finally brought sticky bean to East Coast Park for a picnic session with her cousins as well as to check out Marine Cove after hearing so many raves about this place.

The crowd seems to have died down, thankfully for us. Even if it gets crowded, there are ample spaces for kids to run around. The place is so spacious!

If you drive, be sure to park at carpark C2 or C3, nearest to Marine Cove.

Amenities
I love how convenient the place is. Smacked in between 2 carparks with restaurants and cafes beside it. Most importantly, there are shower and changing facilities for children too!

So we decided to let the kids build sandcastles by the beach and have a simple picnic session before bringing them over to the play area at Marine Cove. Do you think the kiddos will still want to build sandcastle and stay put at our picnic mat if they start playing at Marine Cove play area? haha...

Hand Sewn Felt Letters / Alphabets for Quietbook with printable template

And so I've completed my very first Quiet book activity with felt letters and am completely addicted to sewing with Felt!

I've been looking at quiet books for a long time and kept procrastinating starting work on one. Then it dawned on me that it's time Sticky Bean learn how to spell her name. Once she learned how to spell her name then at least it's easier for her to learn how to write her name.

But how can I make her learn how to spell her name in a fun way? I'm a strong advocate of learning through play especially for preschoolers and below. So I came across this idea of creating a hand sewn felt letters / alphabets board and decided to finally stop my procrastination and get working on the felt pieces I've kept stashed under my bed for the past year.

It's also a perfect opportunity for me to use this as the cover of my quiet book that I'm going to create for Sticky Bean.

I've found this hand sewn felt alphabet template from Purl Soho. Click here
