Exercise – Jump Jump Hurray


Jump Jump Hurray !!! Kids love to jump and jumping is one of the way of exercising. We saw this INTEX Jump-O-Lene at Babyland SSJ with special offers price and the Daddy without second thought decided to buy it. If not mistaken it was 50% offer that time, wow… half price.. no wonder the Daddy was so crazy on that.


Well, this is how the Jump-O-Lene looks like after air filling. It is not big … is LARGE !! This has used up my big part of corner of my living room. According to its label, it shows that this can be inflates to 80 diameter which equal to 2.03m.


This is how the inside part looks like. There are two separate bouncing cushions for extra bounce. As you can see the blue colours circle, there is side of the built in ledge that allows kids to sit or play on it.

As by the warning label, this jump-o-lene is only for kids between age of three and six with weight not more than 54kg. Since I am below the weight it stated (regardless of the age please..), I had give it a try and it is really fun in playing it. Well, as a parent we must check and make sure every toys we bought for our little one are safe for them. So I guess it is not wrong for me to try first before “hand it over” to my little Debo…^_^


This is Debo playing with her new “BIG TOY”. She not brave to jump yet but still exploring it with excitement by walking inside and “inviting” her friends which are her favourite dolls to join her… haha.. She is really cute ^_^

**** Lastly… even how safe the products made, child may has the possibility falling out. For younger kids, parents please do have an eye on them while they are playing. Debo fall out once when she was jumping at the very side of the circle. ***

We did some flash cards practices on body parts and taste of foods.

Since our theme for this week was Body Parts, I had made a feet and hand (printout online) for Debo to more understand her body part.

We also learning left and right by drawing Debo hands on the paper. She like it and always ask to draw her hands or even her feet on papers when she got a pen in her hand.

Linking memory by using cards given by Debo’s grandma, lovely cards and Debo enjoy looking at these. Story can be wild fantasy, but I am not that good in giving too much of elaboration.. haha.
My story:
There is a cat who afraid of seeing doctor, and when he know the nurse is going to give him injection, he ran away and take airplane to hid himself. He hide in hills and wonderfully he meet his friend – little bird and asked to have painting together in the jungle.
Lovely story? ^_^

Bought a new stamping chop from a bookstore, with big round top easy for Debo to hold and chop. Debo is good in chopping,right? haha.. she asked for more, so I just turned the other side of the paper and asked her to chop on empty paper… haha.. lazy mum.. will get her more chopping or dot paint worksheets next time..  “if I remember ~~~”  :p  

Is exercise time. Yes, Debo like to do exercise… well, I mean like to play.. haha, wondering is she a girl or boy. She done very well when I showed her the actions, especially kicking ball, her favourite, just she still not yet understand how to climb up as in the picture, but ya she always done that.. climbing up on table, chair, etc…. @_@

This was the first time in teaching Debo measuring. Since she still not yet know how to read the ruler, this was just a brief introduction on “the way” of measuring.. haha, Debo did enjoy it, pretending to measure everything around her, including my feet…



Learning the word 大(Big) and 小(Small), by using the measuring scoop. Debo able to read the word “大” after the lesson.. well, to her she want everything in BIG and MORE.


We also using Chinese flash card to match with the related picture. 

We playing music note D this week. Debo looked very serious and concentrated, moving all the cards and bell from floor to table, plus her egg toys and yoyo. Why she need the eggs and yoyo? haha… I have no idea as well ~_~….

Debo like to draw her hands and feet on paper, but using colour paint was her first time. She like it so much and asked for more for the next few days… haha. I used her footprint and make it as butterfly.
Alphabet craft, idea from Totallytots website. Capital F for Fox and small letter f for fish.

We had letter F for fox for our this week hand craft. As usual Debo press out all the parts and I put it together.
Collection of hand craft so far.. seems  the box is too small for all these letter craft, time to get more space for them.
