Party Time with the little Krishnas!

Party Time with the little Krishnas!

KidEngage organised two Janmashtami parties, on the same day but two different venues – Little Daffodils preschool in Vijaynagar Colony and Jain Toddlers in Ameerpet. Both the events were coceptualised, organised and executed by Team KidEngage. The kids were entertained to an exciting storytelling session on the life of Krishna using stick puppets. Later they made Peacock crowns in the crafting activity. The younger ones also indulged in a drawing and colouring session.

Raising creative children

Raising creative children

This morning, I saw this NY Times article on my timeline, which dealt at length about raising a creative child. Apparently, according to several studies, very few child prodigies end up achieving their full potential, whether in Science or in the Arts or Sports. They become very good at what they do, but do not create something original. It is very rare to find a child genius, but every child is special in some way…
