Bless my soul, it ain't the end of August yet and we are already rolling out the Christmas decorations in Spotlight! Lol. Every year i do look forward to this year end festive season because it's the only time that everyone (not matter what race or country) participates in this joyous occasion of gifting, spreading smiles all around the world!
I have a love hate relationship with spotlight really, they always never fail to lure me in with their new arrivals (especially fabrics), festive concepts and all especially during the period when i am trying not to spend on impulse lol even with my strongest will power in action, i am totally vulnerable when it comes to craft stuff la, so why fight it anymore right?

I used to work part time as a kindergarten teacher teaching arts and craft, English and basic maths, back in church i would also volunteer to conduct the crafting session (me no likey bible study haha!) which kids are sure to enjoy it very much compared to reading them stories, and i came to realized how a child's mind is such a fascinating thing. The most efficient way to get their attention and cooperation is by giving them hands-on tasks with tons of shiny glitter and colors, it's a guaranteed you'll have their attention for the next couple hours to some point they don't even want to stop lol.
Especially during Christmas period when kids are not into opening their books as their mind are filled with yummy food and presents, so what else could be better to indirectly make them study at the sometime have fun while doing it?
It all goes back to Arts!
Now with the school holidays approaching soon, parents would want to keep their kids occupied without having to drag them out to crowded theme parks should bring them to Spotlight instead to choose their own activity :D
This allows the child to have a sense of "freedom" to select an activity that appeals to them rather than being assigned to something they do not have interests in.
And with all the new Christmas range in, they would also be in the mood to help create decorations for the house, the child would most definitely be proud to show off his/her creations to your guests instead of sulking over uncomfortable new clothes lol.
