Video: Montessori Elementary – Human Tendencies

Member student of a Facebook Group who attended Montessori Elementary course at Bergamo Montessori Training Centre in Italy produced this video for one of the subjects. I think it’s a good video to show children about the reversible role humans have played in this world which contributes widely to climate change’s disproportionate damage around the world.

Making ketupat.

Ketupat is a type of dumpling made from rice packed in woven palm leaf or daun palas. In Malaysia, it is usually eaten during Eid or Hari Raya Celebration, with rendang chicken, a type of curry dish or serunding, a type of famous malay/indonesian dish sauteed grated coconut and meat dish.

In August this year, I’ve decided to record the making of simple ketupat in the shape of triangle, with the assistance of children and teachers in school. We made about 40 ketupat for a game. Ketupat were hung on a string and children were only allowed to ‘pluck’ the ketupat by pulling it using their mouth.

*The palm leaf or daun palas can be purchased from local markets during the fasting season at the price of RM3 (make about 50 ketupat). Peel one leaf from the stalk and give it a good beat on the ground (which is usually best done outside due to dust from the leaves) to open up the thin layer.

Play dough page.



There is  a huge demand on play dough activities in my school right now, from children to adults. I guess that’s because play dough session is enjoyable and therapeutic. For my next project, I will be working on collecting play dough recipes and preparing raw materials for give away or sale to parents during concert, sports day and other fundraising events.

Do you have a favourite recipe that you would love to use again and again with your young or old ones? Please share it here.

Binsulong – Orang Asli’s Craft Work.

Not so long ago, this year, my friend and I attended Hari UNESCO Malaysia at Dataran Merdeka. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We ate, sang and played to our heart’s content. One thing that we decided to bring home to our schools so that we can include it in our cultural and practical life areas is an orang asli handicraft made from rattan. It is called binsulong, an IQ puzzle game for the not-so-faint-hearted. The orang asli community earned and we learned. Loving it!

Made in Kg. Rugading Bolotikul near Kiulu, these differ from rattan versions made with interlooped rattan, fitted with nylon string. It’s this string which must be removed without cutting it or dismantling the rattan snare. (Taken from
