One of the most waited festivals in Shravana Masam is the one that celebrates the birth of Sri Krishna.
Known variously as Gokulashtami, Sri Krishnashtami, Sri Krishna Jayanti, and Sri Krishna Janmashtami (or simply Janmashtami), it is a festival celebrated throughout India. Naivedyam for Lord Krishna is dominated by milk products (Curds, Butter, and Milk) and by dishes made with Atukulu (Poha, Aval, Avalakki, or Beaten Rice); both of which are among Krishna’s favourite foods.
Cooking is an essential life skill that all kids should start learning from an early age. To begin with, they can be involved in fire-less cooking. It is a great activity to develop sense of sight, taste and sound. It is an ideal way to boost a child’s self-confidence and teach responsibility.
When kids get into the kitchen and cook, they get more familiar with the ingredients and methods used, and are more likely to try tasting new dishes too. Since kids are also more creative than adults, you might also be pleasantly surprised by their innovations! Here is the DIY hack from KidEngage with which kids can make some really yum Choco Balls with your help, of course.
