My DIY Waali Diwali

posted by Anupriya October 20, 2017 10 Comments

Diwali for most of us is the time to be super busy. The frenzy around preparing for Diwali for so many Indians is a way of life. For me personally, as the calendar ticks towards the D-day, I keep raking my mind for things I could do for my house. Once all the shopping is done I begin my Do It Yourself ‘DIY’ quest. The best thing about decking up my house the DIY Projects way is the uniqueness it renders+* to my festivities. Also the time and commitment that goes into creating various things motivates me to look forward to more and more guests because I know that my mum-in-law will very enthusiastically show off the décor inviting approving and appreciative feedback from all guests. There are a few things that are on my ‘DIY’ agenda every Diwali. Yet there are some ideas that come to me in a ‘eureka’ moment and steal me off my nights’ sleep a day or two before Diwali.

Shapes Craft – A fun Way of learning through Art & Craft

posted by Anupriya July 13, 2017 16 Comments

It is quite a relief that most of the pre-schools today believe in developing sensory and fine motor skills of the toddlers through activity based learning. Toddlers aren’t handed a pencil and notebook right away and asked to write and learn numbers and alphabets in this tedious and boring way.  For those who have started play school for their toddlers in the recent years must have got a little nervous when your kids were not handed pencils during the entire year of going to the play school. In my case, even at the lower kindergarten level, my son’s school has begun the writing curriculum only now after the summer vacations. The entire learning during the preschool has happened Continue Reading

Learning Alphabets with Phonics – Flash Cards (DIY)

posted by Anupriya June 14, 2017 0 comments

As I promised in my post on Learning Alphabets Through Phonics, I am writing this post to share how I made my own set of Flash Cards to help my boy practice his phonics.

If you are still wondering what Phonics is and why the modern day schools are following this methodology to introduce alphabets to kids, you must read my previous post which iterates Learning Alphabets Through Phonics. Some parents might find it difficult to cope with the Phonemics methodology in the beginning, but once you yourself get a hang of it, there’s nothing that can help your kid learn English language more easily.

Turn of Energies

Ok, I am almost mid-way through my pregnancy and have just begun to feel mild movements where my tummy lies (or rather where the baby lies!). And I must admit, its a great feeling. Even amidst all my doubts and conflicting thoughts about this unplanned baby, the slight activity inside has stirred a lot of positive emotions of affection, love and wonder within me.

Ofcourse my body has slowed down physically, but emotionally and mentally I feel extremely active and charged up. The result? I am intent on doing and trying things which i had planned to for very long.

Cute DIY gifts for Daddy Dear

posted by Anupriya January 2, 2016 4 Comments

Well, ever since Nik was born, I have wanted to gift something personal to my husband. Tell him that it’s both of us who are wishing and gifting you. Ofcourse, this would be easier when Nik is a little older, because then he can (or atleast I expect that he will !) use his creativity with some of my guidance to create something special and personal for his DAD. But until then every year since Nik’s birth I am left with a mind boggling job of deciding on a Birthday gift for Daddy dear.
