Creativity 521 #16 - That's my buggy!

It's probably not a surprise that Angel knows how to spell her name.

However, when we ask her what is meimei's name, she shouts "Ariel!" in the sweetest possible voice but when it comes to spelling, she goes "Errrr...."

So I decided to help her learn it through a fun craft session. We decided to make a stroller plate for Ariel! You know, those customised plates with names that you see attached on strollers. I'm not sure if they are a big thing in Singapore, but these sure are popular in Sweden and I'm glad I had bought an empty plate for Ariel before we came back.

Materials:

1) Empty plate with letterings
2) Assorted stickers for decoration (We used animal and heart foam stickers as well as gem and pearl stickers)

The big sister can't wait to get started!


Firstly, I practised with her on the spelling of "Ariel" several times. Then she was told to pick out the letters one by one and stick them onto the plate.


Next, it's ALL UP TO HER! Yes, as much as I could, I refrained myself from stepping in to interfere even though that plate was pretty darn expensive and I wanted it to look as pretty as possible.



So, it became a gift of love from the big sister to the little one. Her design, her effort, her work, her love.

Ta-dah! How do you like the final look? It might not be the most beautiful plate ever but it's the thought that counts and hey, we learnt our spelling too!

Lastly, attach the plate onto the stroller (I sewed on mine) and your buggy is now one of a kind in the world!


Well, now I have not only one but TWO made in Sweden babies with their own Swedish flag plates. The next time you see this stroller on the streets, you'll know who it belongs to, so do come up and say Hi!!
