Busy Hands at Busy Tables
Another playdate time! This time we went to Busy Tables at Rochester Mall to see how busy it was .. . but apparently it was not that busy so yeah we're enjoying all the space by ourselves. And Jojo of course!! Yeay!!
The space itself is not that big surprisingly but somehow they arrange everything nice and neat. Mommy loves to see all those ziplocks, drawers, and labels! HAHAHA .. That small OCD part of me though! Busy Tables is not the typical indoor playground where your children can run about and do some physical activities, it is more to tables activities, yeah literally like its name whereby your child get to pick what kind of activity they like and let them sit on the chair to explore, solve, and play with it. That's the ideal scenario!! But that's not happening to my Gide!! *grin*
He was having fun pressing all the musical toys at the toddlers area and danced along whenever he heard the music. He also pushing the chair all over the place like what he always do at home! Yeah that's my boy!! Who need a walker when you can push the chair HOHOHO .. He enjoyed playing at the sensory area and furthermore wanting to eat those colorful styrofoam! Serasa kue kali yak! HOHOHO ..
This place also has this area called Dark Room where you can find all those light tables! I love light tables!! My favorite was the dinosaurs!! But my son seemed not so agree with me. He was throwing all the dinos to the floor .. Poor dino! Oh well at least he's mastering his big muscles though!
We had a nice two hours there and most probably will go back there when Gide a bit older so he can explore more on the activities as some of them need more concentration and longer attention span. As for now he's more in the exploring stage. And throwing maybe! HAHAHA .. But I'll make sure he picks whatever he throws or at least force him to pick. Momma needs to do whatever she needs to do, baby! You better use your gentle hands ..
Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn
