Mummy Knows Best - The hands-on mum's guide to cool kids' stuff

p>Our preschooler has just walked in to the homework stage of his life. He enjoys doing all the worksheets that are sent home and I suppose this lack of aversion has to do with the fact that the school work is similar to activities in workbooks that he loves and is familiar with. His latest favourite (mine too) is the School Zone’s Grade K Sumer Scholar. Read the rest of this entry »

Let’s face it, finding the right present for a child is never easy. Especially if you want to go beyond recycling things your child has received but already has/ doesn’t want! So here’s some inspiration based on personal experience. These are all things my now 5 year old son has received over the years and both of us have enjoyed.

0-3 years: Yes there are literally a million toys available for babies/ toddlers, each one proclaiming their unique qualities in aiding a child’s development. Here are my favourite ones: Read the rest of this entry »

The lovely weather of pre-winter Delhi is perfect to ferry the kids to Bookaroo, the International Children’s Literature Festival. Kids can listen to authors read out bits from stories and poems, make puppets, create their own fantasy characters or graphic novel, all in the wonderful AnandGram venue, full of courtyards and trees and terracotta figures

I sat on Thulasi Rao’s porch, in the village of Nimmalekunte (2 hours from Bangalore on the Hyderbad highway) one Sunday afternoon, surrounded by Hanuman, Rama, Sita and Ravana. Thulasi Rao was giving me a mini performance of a scene from the ‘Ramayana’, while reciting his own lament of how puppeteers and their craft are slowly dying out and have no place in our fast-paced city lives. The Charamkari (leather puppet) crafstmen in Nimmalkunte and other small villages like this who have been plying

art for generations have had to resort to making lamps and other products from leather to earn a living. While the lamps are gorgeous in themselves, I could see that Thulasi Rao and his colleagues’ heart lay in the puppets. These are true artists who live for the thrill of the performance. The stage, with their puppets dancing out their stories accompanied by music and songs, is their true calling.

In an effort to revive this dying artform, MummyKnowsBest in association with Craft Canvas brings you the Puppet Making Workshop in Bangalore on Nov 10th at Tharangini in Sadashivnagar and Nov 11 at Purva Fountainsquare in Marathahalli. Join us for a demonstration from the artists on puppet making, participate by

making a small lamp that you can take home for Diwali, and engage all your senses in a puppet show afterwards. Children above 6 and adults welcome. Click here for details, or call +91 99807 29102, +91 8306 066600.

Review by Nisha Abraham

“If there was one place I could be

I think it would have to be under the sea

If you think there’s nothing there

You’re in for a surprise, to be quite fair!”

If, like me, you love beautifully illustrated, easy to read, wonderfully imaginative books for children, you will adore this set of three magical books that children will love, and learn from. They are also the perfect gift to give. I was the lucky mum who got to buy the first copy for my kids!
