Ever since H has started learning alphabets, she has showed keen interest in spelling and writing her name. In fact, for her, H doesn’t stand for horse or house but for Hiyashaa. She was so excited to know that even her name has a place in alphabets. Every time she spotted H, she would shout “H for Hiyashaa!” with pride and happiness. Although I didn’t encourage her into writing alphabets so early considering the tender muscles of her hands, but definitely decided to teach her how to spell her name. Soon, I had a happy girl, who was thoroughly enjoying showing off her skills at spelling her name… H I Y A S H A A!
Most of us in India are in Diwali mode, so are we with our rangoli, sweets and diyas in place. Incidentally, this year the festival of lights is coinciding with Halloween, so we thought to have some spook-tacular fun with kids with our very first Halloween themed play date! With some Pinterest inspiration and lots of imagination, we were all set to welcome kids dressed in myriad Halloween costumes: witches and Goblins for some Tricks & Treats.
Here are some pictures from our bash that may inspire you to host your own Halloween party! Continue reading Our Halloween Party for Kids in 10 photos
Last Republic Day, Lil H saw the flag hoisting for the first time and since then every time she spots the Indian flag she jumps with joy! While on last Independence Day my two and a half year old chatter box surprised us all by singing the National Anthem in our society function. One of the activities that you can do to teach our kids about India, it’s history and it’s constitution is by telling them about our freedom fighters and personalities who put India on the world map . So, in school or your society, this Republic Day dress up your child a personality, India is proud of and tell them their inspiring stories.
Part 2 of H’s Very Hungry Caterpillar Party is way to happening than the Part 1. Here’s a sneak peak…
Photo Booth & Photo Props at The Very Hungry Caterpillar Theme Birthday Party
Just as guests entered, we asked them to write their wishes for H in her keepsake book. Getting that printed was a task! Soon they were given these jiggly wiggly Antennae hairbands and other props in hand, they happily posed on the Photo Booth that was painted by yours truly! Wielding a brush is always a pleasure! What joy was it to see not just tiny caterpillars but also the grown up uncles and aunties posing as caterpillars. Thanks for being a sport guys!
