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.

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

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.

          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.

How I meet you & my life change?

          As the season of love spread it color all over & I can smell the aroma of it in the air. How can I forget you-my most trusted partner…

          You was never been my first choice, but yes by seeing you with my friend, I always wish to touch you & feel the warmth in you. After a lots of request, my dad allowed me to meet you, but this was for few days, as you was not completely mine at that time. This not only disappoints me, but also makes me think that I am not suitable for you.

Kahin na kahin,

koi na koi mere liye banaya gaya hai …

aur kabhi na kabhi main usse zaroor milongi.

          With the time pass, I forgot about meeting you. But yes… when daddy asked me after my schooling that, my which wish he should fulfilled as a gift… I asked from him about you… And finally that day came.. When dad joined our hand together & you became mine forever.

          You were with me in the entire journey from that day to till day. And each moment with you was really memorable.  Sharing with you each emotions, always made me relax & you always became the reason to solve my problem. Whatever problem I had, you always came up with a solution.

          You were with me in each up & downs. You are the one behind my successful carrier, your supports make me explore the world & fulfill my dream. When you use to get sick & energy down, my whole world come to an end… I desperately run here – there to call doctor & make you wake up, at any cost.

          You are always became the reason behind my family anger & jealous, as you have stolen me from all of them. But that was not the fact… it’s you only, who connect me with all of them & help me to do creative surprises for them.

          You are the one, with whom my hubby feel jealous. As he believes that, I spent more time with you instead of him. Many time even he told me, that he will throw you out of my life one day… But in the other side somewhere he knows very well, that because of you… I met him.

          You never told me to maintain or gain some weight. But yes you keep on changing you size, from fatty to slim. So we both can look stylish together.

2-01

          This valentine i love to shout out like anything & spread in every ear, about my love my lappy. Who always played an important role in my life…..Love you lappy.

Zumi’s Winter fun in “Uber Cool Jacket” from Cherry Chrumble California.

          Winter is all about enjoying the one more greater event of mother nature & the chilly atmosphere that she creates in the earth. To enjoy the freezing weather with zumi, we planned a fun trip to bhujodi. As the kutchy winter is typically bitter,–  the Cherrry Chrumble California Autum Winter collection’s “ Uber Cool Jacket” tremendously helped us to keep zumi warm and enjoy the outing in the breezing winter season.

img_20190120_172017_472

Uber Cool Jacket:-

          Jacket looks wonderful. The bold color blocks half fleece & half poly fabric jacket makes it extremely attractive. It has a front opening with zipper & two side entry pocket. The hood that it has is terrifically cool.

1548041528140

          Overall the jacket gives a cool dude biker look, which attracted my little champ, who usually loves being dude a lot. After selecting & ordering it, I was worried if the jacket would be heavier making it uncomfortable to wear. But after getting the hands on not only I was worry free, but I concluded that the brand has very well understanding of the kid’s requirement and comfort.

          The polyester of Jacket is really high quality and soft as well. Its very light weight & keeps our little champ totally comfortable wearing it. Zipper seems flawless, strong & sturdy, which reduces the chances of the zipper getting damaged by these naughty hardcore energetic superheroes.

Cherry Chrumble California Autum Winter Collection 2018:-

          The brand has high quality and uncountable styles of jackets, sweaters & sweatshirts. And this makes it really hard to choose one among the wide range of their wonderful winter wear collections. But I decided and selected the difficult option of getting the piece as basis my champ’s mood – “The Cool DudeBikermood”.

Overall this collection is well designed & created with proper color combination & nice fabrics, to give kids style, comfort, safety & warmth in winter.

         A baby can be a blessing, but there are times, when handling them is not much easier than running a fortune 500 company. All those sleepless nights and chaotic spells are truly worth it in the end.

          A baby can be a source of immense happiness. A cute little baby portrait is a sure shot way of bringing a genuine smile to everyone’s face as well as striking a chord with the viewer’s heart. After all, you just can’t resist the charm of a baby, especially one that has a broad smile on its face.

          Go back in time, scanning the pictures in your gallery thoroughly and turn pictures to paint of all those cherished golden moments that you have experienced.

How it works:

Visit the PortraitFlip.com site and click on the get started button.

Select the size and medium in which you want your baby portrait painting.

Fill in all the essential details such as: number of people, getting it framed or rolled.

          Wait there’s more. You can also get your baby portrait done on a custom size canvas which means that you get to choose the length and breadth and it need not be your orthodox small, medium or large size portraits.

family oil portrait

          Just imagine a huge life size baby portrait painting hanging on your wall. It is a great way to attract the right kind of attraction as well as increase the positive vibes in your home, making it an even better place to live in. As children we had big dreams and beliefs that we would one day surely achieve them. We had the courage to hope even though it may have been truly absurd in some cases.

        On our path to adulthood we sometimes lose this will and hope and restrict ourselves to a life of unfulfilled desires and mediocrity. Great things can be achieved with the help of hope.

brother portraits

       Get a baby portrait painting done to celebrate this feeling and essence. May it always serve as a reminder that we should all hold on to at least a small part of our childhood because children can teach us a lot about how we are supposed to live life to its optimum potential!

A baby can be a gift and at times can also be the best form of therapy that is available.

         All troubles, worries and anxieties just seem to vanish in the face of a beautiful smiling baby hanging on the wall.

My Siblings, My Pal

          #SiblingStories is a blogging train hosted by Ila Varma in collaboration with the Brand Ang Tatva. Thirty six esteemed bloggers from blogging fraternity have joined hands to participate in the Blog train for #SiblingTalk reviving the sweet and tickling hours spent with loving siblings and revive golden memories of the past.

          When I got a chance to write for #Sibilingsstories train, I was little confused that I should do it or not. Being a single child, my parents were the only one at home who became my partner both in crime or virtue. My maternal & paternal side cousins where living far of so we hardly use to get chance to meet up. Diwali & summer vacation were the only option to visit their houses & enjoy the cousin’s reunion. But as the years went by our get2gethters kept reducing. But the bonding of we cousins never had any impact as far as the intensity was concerned.

Let’s recall the moments… which I had stored as a treasure of childhood memories.

1471420213688
This was the first time I realized that i have someone to rule & now someone is there to follow me. 😛

Memories from paternal side cousins:-

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Prank Moment:-

          I am the eldest child as well as only girl child from my dad’s family. With an age gap of 2 yrs I have 29 younger cousin brothers.  So being elder as well as queen of the family, I was the one who had right to prank with younger ones. Our standard prank in childhood was to put red light in the toilet & tell the younger ones that red light belongs to ghost & ghost is in the toilet. While playing (Hide and seek) ice spice with them, we use to hide their deliberately as everybody feared coming to toilet as they believed ghosts are there. And for the same reason, my brothers didn’t go to pee too without their moms as well…… heeeee….

Fight Moment:-

          We use to fight for the quantity of food served by mommy’s & masi’s. Blaming that the other person got more cake, mango juice, snacks…etc…. flow of argument, than a fight & end up when elders shout.

Emotional Moment:-

          During my pregnancy & delivery time I realized that my younger baby brothers had grown up. 24X7 they devoted themselves on my duty. Bring food, taking me to hospital, taking care of my baby & changing his diapers…..they considered each activity as their duty. I never thought that my kiddy brothers will help me this much.

Memories from maternal side cousins:-

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

          Mom’s side we have an equal number of girls & boys. We were mischievous rowdies… this is the correct way to define us. We won’t leave a chance to prank. If I even attempt to brief about my bond & mischievous memories with my maternal cousins, then the blog needs to be replaced with essay writing crossing all the limitations of blog. So I am sharing only my Poppins story with you guys.

Poppins moment :-

PICT0033

          I & my cousin Shree are best buddies. Shree was already blessed with 2 sisters one elder (Reena) & one younger (Remya). More than her sisters, she was closer to me & we both loved sharing most of the things with each other from foods to feast. Many times we use to finish the chocolate box sitting behind the door closet, without sharing with her siblings and were taken to task by our elders, when our cousins cried loudly for this…. For this reason, till date when ever ramya celebrated her birthday comes, we use to gift her pack of Poppins or an e-card of Poppins, to recall that cry baby memory.  Other than this, we use to do cat walk in mini pond, steeling the cashew nut (which nani kept on terrace to dry it), running to grab the mango fallen from tree, catching small fishes from pond & finishing half of the parsadam on the way, when our mom asked us to collect it from temple….OOO I miss one more thing…. Eating the dry biscuit type food of cow…. This is made from rice, coconut & sugar…. Don’t take me wrong guy’s its really yummy to eat.

         Being a single child, my definition of sibling never limits to maternal or paternal cousins. It’s always inclusive and has my rakhi bhai’s & brothers, who always supported, protected & stood beside me in my bad times. In professional life I travel a lot & have stayed in many cities in last 2-3 years.  You feel home sickness when you are away from your own city, but this home sickness will vanish if you find a better and more comfortable work environment and atmosphere.

          I still remember the first & last day of my job in Bangalore. First few days no one was ready to help me, even they were avoided replying my queries & language problem was making things more difficult for me. On the other side, my last day in office, had an unsaid sadness on everyone’s face. My Boss invited me & my friend (as we both were getting married soon) to dinner… he said it’s a ritual in his culture that before marriage a girl should visit her relatives & brothers house for dinner.  As a part of that ritual they washed our feet, did tikka, pooja & gifted us with goodies apart from the delicious dinner they prepared for us.

          This type of sibling bond also leaves a strong impact in our lives. As they don’t have blood relation but inculcates a strong emotional attachment.

          This was my life #SiblingStories. That are invaluable treasures of my life & recalling those memories or even a thought of meeting them are the best stress busting remedy for my life.

          I would like to thanks my sweetheart friend Isheita Chopra & read next series of #SiblingStories contributed by Sumit Sharma.  He is Part time blogger and Full time Online Marketer, who loves travelling.

Here’s How To Keep Your Kid Engaged With Fun + Learning – Magic Crate

          Every parent is curious like me to give their child as best as possible. And in this curiosity, they keep on buying educational & fun loving toys for their kids. As we know, kids get easily bored of all these things & stop playing with it after a few min, hour or days. And at the end, all were gathered in corner of the room or spread in the whole house. Finally, parents realize that they have wasted their money & their house became garbage of toys. To help the parents from this problem, many companies came up with a monthly activity box. These activity boxes not only help to educate the child but also increase their creative side & easily store in less space.

          Today, I am going to tell you about one of the creative as well as an educational box, which I came across & brought for my son.

Activity box from: – 

logo

          Before discussing what is inside the activity box, let me give you a brief about the packaging of the @Magiccrate box. It was simple, attractive, and still beautiful. The moment it came Zumi could not hold her excitement. As it highlights the target of the box “Inspiring young innovators”. Each activity is separately well packed in a poly bag with a tag (picture of activity & development areas). You will find all the activity related things inside each poly bag. No need to buy anything from outside. It’s a well-organized box. One can easily gift it to any kid on a birthday or special occasions, no need to even gift wrap.

Now let’s go to the activity part: – We got a theme box LITTLE MARINER

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In the box, there were 4 activities with a Little Mariner MagicZine & Learning goals sheet.

  • Our first activity – Submarine:- Inside the polybag, you will find material like a bottle, hex nuts, bottle frame, and submarine body. Activity helps in experiment & explore sink or float concept. As the instruction sheet was available inside the bag with an activity related materials. It was very easy for Zumi to assemble it. After assembling it I guided him once about the experimental & exploring part of it. Submarine “Sink & float”…. Which became easy for him to understand because of this activity.
  • Our second activity – Aquarium Acrobats:- Inside the polybag, you will find material like base, arches, box, seaweeds, clay, googly eyes, fish, clips, rod, magnets & stickers. Activity helps in teaching the child how the fish swim & how the magnet attracts to metal & help it to move. Again Zumi enjoyed assembling with materials & instruction sheet. This was the most loving experiment by Zumi & mommy. A kid got a chance to learn how metal attracts to a magnet. And he keeps on enjoying it for a long time.
  • Our third activity – Sand Art:- Inside the polybag, you will find material like artboard, sprinklers, backing paper & googly eyes. Help the child to enhance his creative & artistic side. Zumi did little mistake while doing it, but he also learned, how to use colored sand to fill the picture. Fun activity….

img_20181003_172532.jpg

 

  • The Fourth Activity- Zizi & Jojo Book:- Zizi & Jojo Marine Mission journey is written in the book. As the book is theme base it helps the kid to explore more & also help him to improve his reading habit. I really love this kind of books.

From kid’s point of view:-

Zumi is a monkey boy… making him sit at one place for more than a minute is impossible. But magic crate activities grab his attraction & he loved doing each of them by sitting in one place. Zumi’s first favorite was “Aquarium Acrobats” & second was “Submarine”, as it was experimental base activities, he keeps on repeating it whenever got chance. And not only that but he teaches his friend’s too, what he learned from it.

From My (parent) point of view:-

It’s a wonderful combo of activities, which related to creative, experimental & exploring things for kids. A special attraction of Magic Crate as compare to other activity boxes was the MAGICZINE. I loved that concept, as the MagicZine contains lots of information regarding theme & a certificate. This certificate can be rewarded to a child as a token of appreciation after completing the box activities & increasing his interest in exploring this type of things.

IMG_20181003_173324

They offer 3-months, 6-months, and 12-months subscription. The basic 3-months subscription would cost you Rs.2199. Each month a new theme is delivered to your doorstep with 3-4 activities and a storybook. Each month is going to carry a fresh theme and fresh set of activities to teach your little one about different and new concepts.

Learning With Fun Activities

Hello mommies…

For the first time… I am going to write about diy activities for kids 2.5yrs to 4yrs. Being a mother of super active toddler, I had no option other than switching to DIY activities, which make him sit at one play for a while & make him learn something knowledgeable & creative, instead of making him tv addicted.

The little cupcakes learn best through play. That doesn’t mean you need to buy expensive or enormous toys, however. Here are some activities, which increase your kid’s knowledge while playing.

1) Numbers are fun (Counting Socks)

Objective: Colors association & counting

Materials: 3-6 pairs of socks (different colored)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Getting Started:-

  • Place the socks in a flat tub & give them to your child.
  • Ask your child to match the socks to form pairs & place them together.
  • Encourage him/her to count the number of pairs.
  • To make the activity challenging, ask your child to try wearing socks independently.
  • This is a great activity to develop self-help skills.

2) Container Fun

Objective: To provide an opportunity for spatial awareness and to develop pre-math skills (seriation)

Materials: 7-8 assorted containers (big to small different sizes)
