  1. The lobster is awesomely cute !

    Would love to do this with YX but am afraid of the mess. What brand of water colour do you advise for easy washing? I’ve not bought any water colour for YX except those make in China type. We have finished using them too so wanna buy a new set. Thks.

      Hi Mnhl

      When working with kids, it is always advisable to invest in good quality non-toxic watercolor. Never mind the price, it won’t burn too big a hole in our pockets anyway but what is most important is the water color is safe for our kids to use and ‘play’ with. Try getting some of the better known brand in the market. They are all easy to rinse off. Cheers 😀

  2. I saw that you posted a grape activity that looked super cool – but I couldn’t find it – will you be reposting it?
