Yay Monday is here and I am sure everyone’s watching this space for some amazing book recommendations.
.
Here’s what my cubbie is reading today
.
HOW KIND written by Mary Murphy
.
🙂 This is a fun story about how different barnyard animals makes their fellow friends feel good by giving something they like and showing some kindness.
.
The illustrations keeps the child rooted to the books.
.
The story shows how contagious kindness can be.
.
Kids enjoy to see animals they know.
.
LittleD did enjoy the book but the storyline was very confusing for me though.
.
Author doesn’t tell why the hen got rid of it’s egg(which is obviously not cool at all)
.
Other than that it’s a fun book for kids to read as it has repetitive text.
.
Recommended age - 2+ years

🌸 Potting activity 🌸
.
🌱We did some #bookishplay today and learnt how to pot a plant while we read this lovely book “ LITTLE ACORN GROWS UP” written by Edward Gibbs.
.
🌱Diya loved this activity and spent good amount of things me pretend playing.
.
🌱All you need for this activity is some sand, pot, scooper and a plant.
.
🌱I just colored a paper cup brown instead you can buy small pots and replace sand with different grains.
.
🌱This is a good sensory play with a purpose. Kids can learn about how a plant grows up to become a tree and helps thousands of people and creatures with its shelter and fruits.
.
Do give this activity a try and let me know if your child liked it.

🌸 Count Every Pasta 🌸
.
📊#mathfunmonday is here and I am back with some fun numbers and counting activity for you all.
.
📊Today we did some fun activity with play dough, spaghetti and penne 😊 It just took 2 minutes for me to set it up.
.
📊All you need for this activity is some play dough ( I used wheat dough instead by mixing some food colour), different kinds of pasta (spaghetti and penne)
.
📊Make 4 dough balls of you colour choice ( or use play dough ). Hand over some penne pasta( not cooked) and ask your child to follow instructions.
.
📊I had seen many similar activities for hand eye co ordination. But I just tweaked this a little bit and used it for learning numbers😊
.
📊Variation 1 -
Give them numbers and ask them to count aloud while dropping the pasta through the spaghetti stick.
.
📊Variation 2 -
Boil penne pasta with same food colors till they hold onto some color. Ask your child to color sort them (younger kids). You can also use the counting technique with color which is a little more challenging for older kids).
.
📊Variation 3 -
You can use this to teach place value to older school going kids. It will be fun and engaging. Also easy on your pocket 😊 It will be helpful to teach them ones, tens, hundreds and thousands. Just hand over a number and ask them place pasta according to their place value.
.
📊This activity was a super hit. Do give it a try and let me know how your child liked it.

📚 You may go through a period when your child favors one book and wants it read night after night.
.
📚It is not unusual for children to favor a particular story, and this can be boring for parents.
.
📚Keep in mind, however, that a favorite story may speak to your child's interests or emotional needs.
.
📚Be patient. Continue to expose your children to a wealth of books and eventually they will be ready for more stories.

.
🦁 When Your Lion Needs A Bath written by Susanna Leonard Hill🦁
.
🦁 This is a fun filled book about how a boy bathes his lion.
.
🦁 LittleD laughed out loud when I read this book.
.
🦁 Another eat thing about the book is the illustration. Daniel Wiseman has done a wonderful job.
.
🦁I just love the line “after all behind that roar, lions are cats” 😊
.
🦁 There are number of tricks the boy uses to get the lion into the tub and fails with some ideas.
.
🦁 But when he finally does, the lion gets smelly and dirty again for a reason.

🌎 Moving from one city to another is a huge deal. Not just physically but emotionally too. Especially for a teen leaving behind all they have and a place they called home from a long time is very challenging.
.
🌎”A Girl In the New Town” , a beautiful book written by @alpanabapat states the story of an emotional turmoil 3 friends and their family go through when they had to move to different place.
.
🌎When I started reading it, I just felt like I was one among them in the story. I went back to the days when I had to move from one country to another. I was in Ria’s shoes too.
.
🌎Leaving behind a known place, known people and moving on to a new place is not easy. Parents should make sure how their kids are holding up and that’s exactly what happens here in the story.
.
🌎Want to know how they made Ria feel better and confident! Then do give this book a read.
.
Also the book has twist at the end. Very unexpected. Don’t forget to let me know how you felt after reading this? Sad? Happy?
.
Recommended age - 6+ years

🌸 Rainy day activity 🌸
.
So it was a very boring day today as it was raining outside and we couldn’t head out.
.
Found this beautiful and engaging activity from @onelittleproject and we thought of trying it out immediately.
.
It is super duper easy to setup and start. .
All you need for this activity
☘️Food colors (I used red,green, blue and yellow)
☘️Shaving Cream
☘️Water
☘️Dropper
☘️Containers (4 for food colors and 1 big for the rain effect)
.
In the small containers(use plastic ones for a little younger kids who are not very cautious around glass) pour 1/4 of water to each and add 5-7 drops of food color to it and stir.
.
Take a bigger container (which is clear and clean, I used a Glass vase from @ikeausa) and fill 2/3 of water and rest with shave cream.
.
Hand over a dropper to your little one and ask them to drop colors. This is very engaging and time consuming but the output will make them super happy.
.
LittleD spent a lot of time playing by herself.
.
You can buy cheap shaving cream from @dollartree. I spent just $1 for this activity and it was a hit.
.
You can teach about ☘️Primary colors and secondary colors
☘️It is also a soothing activity
☘️Messy play fun
☘️ Loads of sensory activity from shaving cream
.
LittleD was excited and spent good half hour playing all by herself.
.
Do give this a try and let me know if you liked it too. Lastly don’t forget to check our stories for this activity ❤️

🌸 Number Peek-a-boo 🌸
.
🌸It’s #mathfunmonday again and I am back with another fun filled activity for your little ones.
.
🌸This activities is filled with surprise and your child will get to recognize the right numbers 😊
.
All you need for this activity is
🌸Cardstock paper
🌸Candle/White wax crayon
🌸 Water Paint and a brush
.
🌸Write down numbers randomly on the cardstock paper with the candle. Hand over the sheet and paint to your child and allow them to paint it. No rules nothing. Just let them paint the way they want 😊
.
🌸Once the number starts showing up ask them to shout out the number they see.
.
🌸Sounds fun right. Diya had loads of fun doing this. Everytime a number showed up she was thrilled.
.
🌸Don’t forget to try this activity and post how your child liked it.
.
👍I used a white crayon, so the numbers were visible. I would suggest to use a white candle instead. That will be more effective.
.
Happy painting ❤️

Here’s what my cubbie is reading this week
.
🐦The Pigeon Has Feelings, Too! written by Mo Willems🐦
.
🐦 This is a story about how a pigeon feels everyday.
.
🐦The bus driver tries his best to make the pigeon feel good and happy.
.
🐦 But this bird doesn’t like to be told what to do!
.
🐦 If you want to know how the pigeon felt at the end of the story you should definitely read this one.
.
🐦 It’s a lovely board book with cute illustrations showing different feelings of a pigeon who just doesn’t want to show a happy face.
.
🐦 But the bus driver tricks the pigeon and everyone gets to see its happy face 😊😊
.
What we learnt from this book
.
🐦We guessed the emotions from the pigeons face even before reading.
.
🐦We had a talk about how others have feelings too and we should always help when someone’s sad.
.
🐦Teaching kids about compassion, care and empathy is very important.

Twinning at our best ❤️❤️
.
This outfit was gift from one our neighbour for LittleD’s birthday.
.
She stitched it for us 😊😊 I love the color combination and how flowy the dress looks.
.
So we thought of clicking some pictures and adding some quirkiness too😬

🍁 Season Surprise 🍁
.
🍂We are all set to welcome “Fall” aka “Autumn” so this activity was apt.
.
🍂Temperature is falling down and it’s really cold outside. So all our physical activities, Park visit is all gone for a toss.
.
🍂We spend a lot of time inside with messy and sensory play. .
🍂You can teach your child about how the season changes and ask them what changes they notice.
.
🍂I told her how the weather changed from sunny and hot to chill and cold.
.
🍂How we can’t head out without jacket and boots.
.
🍂All you need for this activity is some toilet paper roll, cardstock paper and some paint.
.
🍂First trace out the trunk and color it brown on the cardstock paper or you can use the printable from @crafty_morning .
🍂Cut the end of the paper roll using scissors and it forms a leaf shape.
.
🍂Ask your little one to dip the paper roll in paint and print the leaf shape on the tree trunk.
.
🍂Don’t forget to tell them how the leaf color changes and fall off the tree every year in this season.
.
🍂This was an ah-mazing activity and LittleD loved it.
Don’t forget to try this simple activity.
