Bird watching fun at Munnar-A story of Whistling bird.

Munnar trip was really great experience to enjoy bird kingdom.From Sparrow,Parrot,Pigeon and some colourful birds plus chirping whistling of birds,Yes you read me right.During our stay,first evening I heard whistling sound coming from balcony of resort room,my first impression was may be someone is whistling,I checked around but that sound was coming from bushes and dense forest,that time I came to know its whistling bird.

Next morning it starting with lots of bird chirping around,and all mountains views fresh in sunlight and later addition of whistling sound to them.This whistling sound come so close never before,that bird came and sat on roof of the balcony of the neighbor's room,tried my best to capture the bird .Finally could come with only sound recording of the same.I guess little shy bird ,with no doubts gifted one.
I guess god has given everyone something special,lucky to witness the sound of this bird during the Munnar stay.

Stencil Art–Making Animal Kingdom.


All rejuvenated after vacation in Munnar,back to the the blogging time.Its vacation time for Khwaish ,so we are exploring our own craft session.

I bought animal stencil long back and used it only once before starting the blogging,made some animal model when khwaish turned two.So decided to give it try after long time,Khwaish seem to very excited on holding that stencil.

So here we go to make our own animal kingdom on plain paper.

I was holding animal stencil because I feel it was not possible to hold stencil and use the colour at the same time for Khwaish,so made outline of animal with pencil.



Next we all set to use colour and brush…..while using colour reminds me of book and craft session ,we have done earlier.



At the end of session we got colourful result of stencil art.


We have planned to use some more stencil work during the vacations,so ready to catch some more stencil action.

Hula Hoop-Self motivating experience after series of trial and error.


Khwaish demanding two toys from last week,one she mentioned to me as circle which we can twirled around the body,I knew what she is asking for but honestly I did not know that its Hula Hoop.Second one on her list was binocular which again she don’t know the name,she explained me by putting round folded finger around her eyes and I know what is her demand.


To explore what she wanted  to do with toys,we bought same from Sapna book house last weekend,and went to friend’s place.Well we know kids won’t  hold their patience for long time,so she unwrapped her Hula hoop,and started giving try for the same.

She have never tried Hula Hoop,its just that she have seen same at her school.So after all her trial and error,she explored how she can rotate this colourful circle around her body.I ‘m glad to hear her voice declaring ‘Mamma I can do it,I have learned’.I guess I ‘m feeling proud to see my little one exploring and creating her own ways to learn and train herself.This is surely self-motivating experience for her.

Next day onwards,its now classes for us to learn Hula hoop at home,my husband and me giving best try to learn fast from her .I’m overjoyed with this experience of learning from my little teacher,although I have lots of learning in the process of motherhood itself.


So what are your kids teaching you today?
