Let’s Cruzee! The balancing bike for toddlers

I first heard about Cruzee bike from Summer’s blog and thought it was quite a cool learning bike for Ayra. But the price was a little high then since I didn’t have a stable income back then. Then earlier this year, I saw Cruzee bike again at OCBC Cycle race pack collection expo and they were having a promotion. I felt it, carried it, and examined it in detail asking many questions and I bought it.

Since then, Ayra has only tried cruzee-ing on it around the house, and was literally pushing and walking with it instead of balancing. Only after a few months I started to bring Ayra outdoor to give her more space to try learning to balance with it. Up till today, she is still not confident enough to push and lift up her legs from the ground, afraid she might fall. We will continue to let her try and hopefully one day she will be able to balance on it on her own and build up her self confidence.

It’s about learning to balance and building her self confidence when riding.
When her grandfather insisted (after I bought the bike) that I should have bought a regular paddle bike with training wheels, I had a hard time convincing him that this is better. Regular paddle bike though easy for her to sit on and play with, but she would not want to paddle too which then defeats the purpose of getting her a new bicycle since she already has got a little tikes tricycle. Cruzee is much lighter than most paddle bike with training wheels which makes it so much easier for Ayra to maneuverer around on her own. She can easily carry the bike from the storing space and start using it without help from us.

I must admit, getting the Cruzee for Ayra was an impulsive buy, but I believe it is a good investment for her to learn to balance on two wheels and also to help improve her confidence when she is ready to learn paddle riding on a two-wheel bike in future.

Rainy Day Activity – Construct, Paint and Play with Your DIY Cardboard Rocket Playhause

Because it has been a rainy December, this inexpensive and fun activity is great for indoor fun time with the whole family! May we introduce our new found hobby for our family… Painting and decorating our very own Rocket!

Few weeks ago, Santa came knocking at our door with this amazing craft project which Ayra couldn’t wait to start working on. When she saw the flattened box, she demanded us to setup her “Spaceship” immediately.

And so we did, in less than 30 minutes, we have our very own cardboard Rocket playhouse! It looked kinda plain and not so fun, but Ayah never fail to bring smile to our faces with his wacky ideas. Please meet our very own Rocket Man! “Peace yio!”

With our Do-a-dot paints, we starting painting our rocket. It was fun and we got to do something together as a family.

Ayra was enjoying the painting and dotting all over her own rocket.

The first weekend when Zara came back, she was super excited to see the rocket too. Without any introduction nor help, she managed to get in and out of the rocket on her own and was totally enjoying herself with it. Peek-a-boo! she said.

We continued painting the rocket together and Zara helped too. I must say, painting this rocket with Do-A-Dot paint is no joke at all! Our hands and fingers get numbed from all the squeezing and dotting after 20 minutes. It took us quite a while to completely paint the rocket.

The girls were more interested to play in the rocket than to paint on it. They even doodled inside, this is probably a better way for kids to let loose their creativity and just doodle and draw on these cardboard; without having to worry they destroy any furniture or walls with paints and colours.

The rocket is big enough for both our girls to fit in. Or put in a chair for one child to pretend to be an astronaut blasting into space in her own rocket.

Zara is super loving opening and closing the door of the rocket!

After a week or so of on-and-off painting with our Do-A-Dot paints, we finally completed our rocket! Isn’t it pretty? Let Mummy Rocket show you how to pose in it.
