I love playing with my daughter.
Holidays are game marathons .But for a five year old ,everyday’s a new day ,full of new ideas for having fun.Together with her ,I relive all the fun memories of childhood.
Doodling is a favourite.
She draws or I draw .Then we colour together ,spending hours over getting the pictures right.Then she tells me a story ,looking at the picture and I tell her a story.Definitely a fun hour or two .
Playing with the blackboard decal and whiteboard are favourites too.

We play teacher-teacher .Where she is the teacher and me or my hubby or sometimes both have to be students .Best way to make learning fun .
Making hair clips ,headbands and necklaces using DIY kits ,is a recent favourite.
I have bought the kit online and supplemented it from my craft kit .Result is a totally productive and fun time spent, where mommy forgets to sneak off to write.
We paint our plant pots and decorate them together.
My balcony garden is a witness to our fun painting pot sessions.
We bake together .
My daughter will tell you the exact steps to bake a mouth-watering delicious chocolate cake.
We paint each others toe nails rainbow colours. It’s precision work at best and funny nail art at worst .
Play dress up and karaoke
We dress up and makeup funny songs to sing in popular tunes .
Playing with children is a wonderful stress buster and the best way to encourage lateral thinking, association ,imagination in children.It’s also a wonderful way to nurture the right brain of your child.
