Think Pink

Holi is considered as one of the most celebrated festivals of India and it is celebrated in almost every part of the country. It is also sometimes called as the “festival of love” as on this day people get to unite together forgetting all resentments and all types of bad feeling towards each other.

I prefer to play holi but only with water, no color. So my daughter asked me to gift her holi water bag pichkari (water gun) on this holi. I promised her to bring it, but I really had tough time as she wanted only pink color in it and no other color. Thank fully in one shop, I got a pink color mini mouse water bag with a red color gun. However, she refused to take that as she only wanted pink. She said “Pink is only my favourite color”. I don’t know why she is so obsessed with pink.

So while I was moving in search of the pink color holi water bag pichkari (water gun), this sign board came in front of me as if someone wants to tell me, please don’t get annoyed and “think pink”.

No words, what you think you See. So we moved to another shop again with these colorful bags. Check this out.

After half an hour of convincing her finally, she agreed for a frozen blue color bag. Thank god!!

You guys enjoy Holi, Festival of Colors. Take care and Happy Holi.

Painting Activity with little Miss Kyaraa 💖

Painting can help your children communicate their emotions or feelings. Through the use of different colors, they can express themselves without the use of words. Painting allows children an educational opportunity that is also fun and exciting. I always encourage my little one to paint whatever she wants.

Kyaraa wanted to do some painting activity. She loves paints, bright colours and whenever she has nothing to do, she asks me for brush and paints.

We stay in an apartment in Mumbai, which has a small gallery too.

I was thinking to get some beautiful plant pots since a while as the pots which we have are the ugly black and brown pots. I thought why not paint the pots today itself creatively and add to the gallery garden’s beauty.

That’s when we both decided to paint our own pots. We ended up creating a lot of mess but as we all know to make a masterpiece, a little bit of mess is the first requirement !!! Kyaraa really enjoyed this activity, and results were amazing.

Happy Smiley face 😇

Art by little Miss Kyaraa

Art is the perfect messy fun for kids and makes for ideal sensory play. My 3 and half year love using brush and play with Colors. I love to watch her painting. I see a fully engaged child when she paints.
Painting is a way for children to do many important things: convey ideas, express emotion, use their senses, explore color, explore process and outcomes. Here is some messy art by my little Picasso.

Return To Innocence!!!

Children are beautiful because they possess something that we have all lost – the quality of innocence.

Kyaraa Doll house

When I watch my 3 year old daughter, Kyaraa, playing for an hour with her Barbie singing to herself, I know I see it… that’s innocence.
Innocence goes deeper than ignorance. It is some mysterious operation of the imagination, the part that can enter mental universes from which one is soon to be forever excluded.

A child can teach adult a lot:

  • To be happy for no reason
  • To be always be curious
  • To fight tirelessly for something
  • To be focused
  • To be imaginative

The innocence of children is their wisdom. It makes them stand out. There is magic of creativity and curiosity in their innocence. There is joy of freedom and happiness in childhood. In their innocent eyes, dreams are born. Let’s learn from children and return to innocence.

I love this song Return To Innocence… It reminds me how this world needs to learn art of innocence. How we need to return to our self.

The freedom of growing mind

I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves. – C. JoyBell C.

“Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else.” – Sydney Gurewitz Clemens

Anyone who has spent time with kids know they can be a uplifting source of joy. I love being with my daughter and just spending time together. she is three and half but very creative. I believe in giving her free hand. She loves to create mess with colours, she loves doing painting and art work. A creative environment is very important for our kids to grow and to understand the way of life. I feel we should create an encouraging and supportive environment in which our toddler feels free to dare, experiment and express their creativity. A creative mind thrives where there is freedom and joy. My daughter loves to dance, she loves playing with colours and she is very curious about everything. Sometimes I feel I learn lot being with her and that’s called joy of life.

According to study ; Children start to demonstrate their creativity from at least the age of one by exploring objects. By two, they can invent ways to use new tools on their own and from around eight years they can even invent their own tools. Virtually all kids are creative, it’s part of their nature. I believe there tiny minds grow more maturely if you give them free hand under your supervision.

Colourful days are here again!!!

Art is a very powerful way to express your feelings, so recently when Kyaraa was playing with colours , I thought to try my hands on it and to teach her.
Somewhere, I think that I do loose my connect with colours coming along the way over the years since college times and now I have realised that this is something that I would always love to do, and had forgotten this over the period of time. This is too much fun, Art is magical, in true sense but it’s not magic! All thanks to Kyaraa.❤️🎨
