FD Special: Hawaiian Happiness

Daddy was invited to my kindy today for a belated Father's Day celebration. He took time-off from work to attend this special event with me.


Too bad, we didn't dress to the theme "Hawaiian Happiness" because we didn't have any suitable outfits. Daddy wore his usual casual-Friday company T-shirt while I put on a blouse which had the most flowers on it haha!

Daddy and I

The day started with a special assembly where all of us and our dads sat in a large circle. We talked about our dads and dedicated a few songs to them.

After singing the I Love You song, I was seen hugging and manja-ing daddy

And then surprise, surprise... I volunteered to stand in front and sing!

Our next daddy-daughter activity was a special recycling activity to revamp daddy's old T-shirt using the tie-and-dye method.

Ms J briefing us on how to get started

Tied some marbles to the T-shirt with rubber-bands

After tying close to 20 marbles on the T-shirt (both front and back), we then soaked it in a pail of dye. There were two choices of red and blue dye, and I chose the blue one.

Pushing the T-shirt into a pail of blue dye with a stick

A few days later... tada!

This is for you, daddy. I love you! Everyday is Father's Day to me as you can see how clingy and manja I am to you every morning *grin*
