Make traveling fun for kids with Little Travel Bug

posted by Anupriya December 14, 2018 3 Comments

In the last decade or so, the most significant learning about life that has dawned upon me is that there are two things that a person needs in life, just like oxygen. These two things are the gateway of a human mind to whatever there is to know about the world and also to the unseen possibilities. Yes, books and travel are two interests or habits that I feel that everyone should inculcate on a personal level.  And as parents we should make whatever efforts it takes to enable our children to read and travel as much as possible.  I personally want my kids to be very well read and extremely well traveled. With these two virtues imbibed in their personalities, two decades down the line, I will feel that I have done my job well.

Recently when I came across the products by Little Travel Bug, my interest was piqued immediately. After all, here I have made traveling and reading as the motto of my life and then I come across this series of books with travel at their core.

posted by Anupriya June 5, 2018 28 Comments

With a houseful of three kids (for those who have followed my posts know that I have two boys. Yes there’s another girl in the house, my boys’ first cousin. We live in a joint family) , all under five, summer vacations did not pose a very pleasing proposition to me. I have dreaded this years summer vacation with all my might and pondered on every resource available trying to figure out how I could keep the kids busy throughout the vacations.  Summer camps and activity classes were an option, but most of the options available last only a week or so that too just 3-4 hours a day. This really wasn’t a sustainable solution. To add to that the kids constantly insisted that they do everything together. My elder son is the only one at a respectable age to gain from the summer camps and like activities, but he won’t go alone.

The Child Is The Father Of Man – Kadam Chhota, Change Bada

I was about 8 years old, when I observed that our toothpaste was now coming in a user friendly plastic tube, instead of metal tube. I loved the new toothpaste packaging as it was convenient and retained its original shape throughout. It was quite a draw compared to the old metal tube that lost all its original glory with usage.

At that age, I believed that plastic ought to be the discovery of the century. With time, everything that came packaged, came in plastic. The colorful and light weight packages were the in thing. Even my parents stopped carrying ‘jhola/ thaila’ (a cloth carrybag) for grocery shopping.

‘They give everything in plastic bags these days.” was their excuse. Plastic bags became a way of life.

As I grew up, campaigns around hazards of plastic picked up momentum. A general environment against usage of plastic was created and emphasize was laid on recycling of plastic. But how did it affect me? Not in a way that I can be proud of. Same was the case with everyone around me including my family (pre and post marriage). I could say that my routine life continued in oblivion. Continue Reading
