Sneak Preview to Juan Or's Humble Birthday Celebration

Tonight Papa and Mommy will be celebrating Juan Or's 2-year-old birthday. The birthday celebration will be just a humble  and simple one.....nothing elaborate and just the three of us. Here' a sneak preview of what Mommy prepared of Juan Or for the celebratioon tonight:

Getting Juan Or to do a simple craft - a party hat! Yes, after reading a few of mummy bloggers' blogposts about getting their little ones to do some crafts, Mommy felt motivated to try out on Juan Or too.

First, Mommy opened up a commercial party hat to draw out the template on a manila card.

Then, cut out the drawn template. Mommy also wrote "I am 2 years old! 12th May 2010" using magic pens.
Next, Mommy got Juan Or to put his 'graffiti' on the hat. Anyway, Mommy was not expecting much from his 'graffiti' because to normal people, the 'graffiti' was more like scribbles. ^ ^

However, Juan Or turned out to be more interested at messing up his colour pencils rather than drawing 'graffitis'!

Then, Mommy cut out one aeroplane picture from an AirAsia advertisement for Juan Or to stick to his party hat.

Mommy also cut out tiny strips of paper from advertisement leaflets to make as frill deco at the pointed end of the hat.

Next, glue the two ends of the hat together. Mommy also gave Juan Or stickers to stick onto the hat as decoration. His stickers are stars and Winnie the Pooh.

And lastly, staple a cut loose rubber band on the bottom sides of the hat and voila, the party hat is ready!

How does the hat look like in the end? Well, Mommy would like to keep it a suspense! Let the birthday boy show you the hat himself! ^ ^

P/S: Mommy's post is rather short today because Mommy has to go collect the birthday cake, pick Juan Or up from the babysitter's house and then rush back to prepare for Juan Or's humble birthday celebration tonight. Stay tuned and ciao!

Small Kucing, eh, no-lah, it's me who wrote that. Juan Or still doesn't know how to write yet....only know how to scribble, that also he buat tak bersungguh-sungguh. :P

Merryn, Sheoh Yan, Serline, and Cheeyee, thank you for the birthday greetings (on behalf of Juan Or).

Alice Law, thanks!

mNhL, I will keep that hat till old, but it still depends on this boy whether he goes and destroy the hat when I'm not looking...hahaha! :P

Prince n princess mum, thanks! Anyway, I think this craft is still a little too difficult for him to do. His part is only in scribbling, a little of putting on the glue and sticking the stickers. Other than that I do one....hehehe! Otherwise the hat will end up in a mess! :P
