          I am all set to ride this #Ariel #Son-day task train with my champ. I am highly believe that all family members should #ShareTheLoad, but somewhere agree that all the three elder men are layman in it. Wives of the family try to train the hubby’s, when they started working to support them in balance the financial situation. This didn’t help them completely, but given them a satisfaction that at least the men of the house trying to learn & improve. So when I blessed with a son, I decided that I won’t make him dependent on me or his wife for small- small house chores. At least I will teach him to do small regular basic works of house.

          Ariel this week task is washing clothes. Zumi is all set to learn the first #sharetheload task wash his clothes.

          His task start with gathering the clothes from room, which thrown by him here & there. After that let him carries it to washing area & put it in the washing machine. Add the ariel matic liquid & water as per required. Now it’s time to “ON” the washing machine, set the timer as per required.

          Now what next…. It’s time to dance till the washing done. When I complete put it in the dryer & dries it.

          We enjoyed doing this task….. wat about you guys?

          My in laws house is old style. There sink is not attached to the kitchen. Whenever we where there, every time I have to go backside of the house where sink area is made to wash the utensils. As I was alone with zumi while working, to keep him engaged & in front of my eye, I use to give the clean dish ( washed by me) to wash again & arrange it in proper way.  By seeing this many people told me that “he is a boy, don’t make him do girls work”, but every time I had a same reply to them that “I am making him independent & at the same time teaching him that he should #sharetheload of household chores”

          This time I thanks to #ariel & #blogadda for giving me a chance with this task to share my story to everyone.

Let’s make your Sunday to #Son-day with #Ariel campaign.

          Its inspiring delight to see @ariel.india coming up with these awesome initiatives that encourage gender equality and break stereotypes like laundry is only for women. They emphasized on that everyone in the family should #sharetheload .  To spread the vibe of this movement & to encourage more sons’s to join it, for the next four Sundays (21st april- 28th april- 5th may – 12th may), Ariel come up with one new task every Sunday and they want the sons to check that out and do that task. If you love your mom and really believe that you would want to help her out, do participate and pledge to share household chores

          I am too joining this movement & going to do the second Sonday task with my son zumi. Second #Son-day task was to clean & arrange the wardrobe. This is the biggest messy work for me.

          Zumi turn 4.5yrs now, he love to choose his clothes himself & won’t prefer to wear something which I keep out for him. Every day my naughty piggy drag each clothes from the arranged set, which somewhere spoil all the arrangement in the wardrobe.  As a result the wardrobe turns to messy.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

          As you can see in the first picture, how he has dragged down all the clothes & made the wardrobe messy. OMG! Not again…. This was use to be my reaction earlier ….. But now, I am carefree as this #son-day because of #Ariel, I taught him to fold the clothes & keep it in proper place.

InShot_20190503_123403679

         I am surprised by seeing that; zumi really enjoyed doing this work. With his full dedication he learned to fold the clothes & helped me to re-arrange the messy wardrobe. While folding each clothes, he had a smile of learning & achieving something. With an excitement, that he had helped his mommy to complete the work. This teach me a important lesson of life, which I love to share with all mommy’s…

          Hey lovely mommies.. We are the one who teach the kids about gender difference… knowingly or unknowingly… but this is the fact. We are the one who select pink or blue -select cars, balls or Barbie dolls, kitchen set etc for our kids.

         Let’s change this stereotype, by join ariel campaign & changing few habits of ours…. Let your kids enjoy every color & all type of toys…. Let them learn to do all work with their full dedication…. Let them understand the hard work & equal invovlment of both gender for running house, society & country, so they learn to respect both gender.

          When women can handle home & office after marriage, why the men cann’t learn to handle home with office. Teach your son to #ShareTheLoad.

Yudh bhoomi – game of war & maths

          From last one week a war is going on in our house……nothing to panic 🙂 🙂 :), and I am just loving this war, as it’s a war of Yudh bhoomi game from dicetoylab

          Earlier whenever someone talked about games of thrones or strategy, only one thing came to my mind & that was chess.  But this is completely different from chess… The only compatibility between both games other strategy and thrones is WAR…

          Dicetoy team is the mind behind Yudh bhoomi game. This Game is created in such a way that it gives you the feeling of cold war & the great warriors who are there protecting their friends. In the miniatures form you will find both men & women soldiers, that will help form a feeling of equality in the minds of kids that both men and women can protect when facing dire situations.

IMG_20190414_175910_318

*Men: – Both Spearheading and Swordsmen in attacking pose.

IMG_20190414_175910_317
*Women: – Archers and Swordswomen also in attacking pose.

IMG_20190414_180912_441
There are total 32 soldiers in 8 different poses in the game.

          Each warrior kid player can set up warriors in a formation of his choice. Game begins with the rolling of dice & the number on the dice positive or negative decides the fate of warriors. But the actual decider and the critical but fun moment comes, when the dice fall in with the warrior face… And that’s the time to pick the card  & follow the instruction written on it which is designed so wonderfully that it changes the direction of the game from winning to a threatening position. It creates a great excitement in kid’s mind at that moment.

This makes the game totally unpredictable and keeps the kids interested all the time. One can’t predict the time how long it can be played with only few moments that it can defeat the other or even self by just dragging a card.

In this game set you will receive 3 boxes.
1) Male warriors – 16 Miniatures – 499 Rs.
2) Female warriors – 16 Miniatures – 499 Rs.
3) dice & (20) game card + instruction card – 299 Rs.

Combo price Rs. 1174

          Miniatures are well crafted with PVC material, which are soft and flexible but not at all sharp. Miniatures are totally safe for kid’s.

What I liked about this game?

  1. As the game is based on ancient Indian warriors style, Kids can relate how brave and sacrificing our ancestors would be face a difficult and an unpredictable situation.
  2. The best thing is it’s very effective in teaching kids basic mathematics
  3. Gender equality, by all means the best takeaway of this Game is, its has both male & female soldiers with different weapons & poses, which shows the gender equality ( that no other games replicate).
  4. Keeps kids engaged for longer time with fun and excitement. What’s more that it keeps them away from gadgets too .
  5. It teaches them to face ups & downs of life and prepare themselves for surprises and be prepared for them. As this game is unpredictable and one can win or lose any time.
  6. All the materials used in the game are harmless and totally environmental friendly and safe of kids of any age.

          It’s easily available on amazon.com or can be purchased from this website: – dicetoylab

          Picture shown above is the first version of game, which can be played by 2 players. If more players want to play we have to purchase an extra box of warriors.

          Dicetoylab has launched a sticker color book related to warriors, which is ultimate. Advance version of yudhbhoomi is in pipeline, stay tune with them to see there more creative launch.

Skolatoys -Step & Slide with a twist added by me

          With the start of the month of April, we Malayalis eagerly wait for Vishu our “New Year”. In this festival, after worshiping Lord Krishna, the elders gift the younger ones in the family. So I was in search of something special for my little kid.

          Being a mom, I know what kind of issue he is facing, when it comes to a reading & understanding. I tried several tricks to grab his attention towards reading short stories… But as I know he is extra naughty champ, and it’s very hard to make him sit at one place without his willingness. So my next intent was to search a kind of game, which attracts him to read & encourages him to understand what he is reading. My search zeroed me at Skolatoys.

Skola toys have different stages of word games.

  1. 3 letter crosswords (age 4+)
  2. Sight Words:- Step & Slide (age 4.5+)
  3. Word Wheel (age 5+)
  4. Complex Words with Phonograms (coming soon)

          We decided to go with Sight Words:- Step & Slide game ….and in my way add a twist in the game while playing, that will surely improve his reading + understanding trouble. Before knowing, what kind of twist I added too it… Let me show you the product we brought & how much we enjoy it.

55495041_10156503719678533_1247726516754710528_o

Sight Words :- Steps & Slide

It looks like a pyramid of sight words, which is used extensively usually in day to day lives.

InShot_20190327_171000585

Materials in the box: –
1) 4 stackable pieces printed with sight words
2) 4 wooden knights pawn, 4 wooden ladders, 1 die & 1 flag
3) 1 board with sight words printed
4) 4 marker color pens
5) Instruction manual
6) Crayons

Kids can easily install it.

Single player: – Child has to roll the die & move as many as steps forward which the die had indicated. The kid needs to read the word where he lands & mark the same word in the word list with the sketch pen or crayon given in the set.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Multiple Player: – 4 kids can play this game. The sequence of each player will be same one after other turn, but with that you can add some rules like (1) whoever reaches the top with the most words collected, wins. (2) The game will be over the moment any kid reaches the finishing point, and whoever collects the most number of words wins. (3) If the latter comes to the same word that the former has collected, then you lose the steps and stay still and cannot repeat the word too.

SKILLS DEVELOPED:-

Sight Reading: – As the kids play this game, they effortlessly absorb all the basic sight words needed for simple reading & writing. This not only enhances their interest in reading, but also helps them to create meaningful sentence by their own.

Game play: – Increase the fun of learning together.

Twists we added: – While playing it with zumi & frds, we added a new rule to it. Which was.. wherever the player lands as per the dice rolled, the player will read the word & form a sentence using the same word. The intent was not only to increase their interest in reading but also make them understand usage of same word to get meaningful sentences. This twist added a new thrill in game & we find that kids really looking forward to make sentences their own.

I just love the product & highly recommend to mom’s who want to encourage their kids to read & understand the sentences they are reading.

This was my experience about the game from skolatoys. Skola Toys are designed to provide delightful practical learning experiences to young kids. Do check there website www.skola.toys

Spring Summer Fun with Cherry Crumble Fashion.

          After a long chilly killing winter… Now climate changed its mood & the breeze cold wind started turning to warmer and within few months it will get hotter. So If nature had a mood change, why cann’t my son change his clothes collection. All warm clothes packed & stored…as its time to beat the heat with cool soft cotton clothes & for that our destination is “Cherry Crumble California- Spring Summer Collection 2019”.

InShot_20190319_162028847
I choose 2 from their collection – Quirky Tee set & Stripy Pj set .

Quirky Tee set.

          It’s a combo deal. I got a set of 2 T-shirt in this combo. Both the T-shirt design with basic essentials feature cut & sew – color block pattern. One of them features a contrasting neck-rib and front chest pocket while the other features the contrast of 3 solid color blocks. Color combination is very attractive & gives a cool summer + stylish feel. Fabric is very soft, light weighted 100% cotton.

          As the fabric is soft & comfortable, champ loved to wear both. I liked the usage of color in it – 1) t-shirt dark & bright combination, 2) neon pink with ash & dark blue color.

Stripy Pj set.

          My second selection was the Stripy Pajama set. This blue stripy pajama set has a royal look with the “British Soldier Print” detail on the pocket & a shirt collar. I loved the usage of polka dot lining inside & neon pink velvet piping at the edge of the pj set, which overall highlights the look of the night suit & make them eye catchy. Fabric used in night suit is 100 % cotton.

IMG20190307141150

          Champ loved the night suit as it was comfortable & combination of velvet neon pink piping, polka dot in blue stripy pajama attract him a lot.

In Cherry Crumble California Spring Summer Collection 2019, you will find a wonderful usage of bright colors, military patterns, flowers & glitters. Patterns, cut & sew, color combination & fabric everything is awesome & selected as per the mood of kids.
