This Republic day introduce your kids to some traditional Indian games from ‘Desi Toys’ that are made with the passion of exposing today’s children who are being robbed of the wonders our country has to offer with it’s rich collection of skill based toys and games!
It's a gloomy rainy day, it is pouring outside and as we plan to publish this post, we can't help thinking just how much fun rainy season used to be when we were kids.
We've all had our share of fun during childhood and the memories may differ individually but there are some childhood memories associated with the rainy season that have remained popular across generations and they will never go out of style!
Ask anyone about their favourite toy as a child and you are most likely to hear them recall their childhood nostalgia associated with a brown teddy bear which was loved despite losing all its fur, a train set which was passed down to the next generation even after the tracks were broken or a kitchen set that saved them from boredom on hot summer afternoons.
Finding ways to keep the children engaged while you finish those daily chores at home can be a lot of work in itself and finding activities that children can do on their own without adult supervision becomes equally important if you are a working parent.
“Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play, children learn how to learn.” - O.Fred Donaldson.
Now that we know that playing is important for children, here is another key factor that plays a big role in making playtime more meaningful for children and that is the choice of toys which you buy for them. Yes! Toys can be more than just fun and games for kids. If chosen wisely toys can offer a great opportunity for children to develop early childhood skills.
Navratri heralds the arrival of the festive season in India and this is one such festival which is celebrated in different ways across the country. Talking to your children about the unique festivities in different states of India during the nine days of Navratri can be a chapter on Indian culture and traditions for them but we found some more interesting ways to make Navratri a lot more fun for the kids.
