Monsoon activity | Paper Umbrella ☔



Hi Friends
Hope you are enjoying the monsoon season if in India! This is a fun time here in Mumbai, sometimes raining cats and dogs but on others it is a very nice drizzle!

So when mumma and missy are home on one of these monsoon days, this is what we ended up making!
We cut some circles from origami paper, cut them in half . Folded them from centre and stuck them. Also inserted a little cord for hanging the umbrella and a little stem for holding it..whatever is preferred :)

Do let us know how you liked our little monsoon craft Umbrellas.

Kids Rakhi Activity and Marwadi Son Pooja


Sharing a rakhi activity that little miss did in her school. She decorated a rakhi printout with crepe ribbons and sequence. Isnt it cute!

Also want to share a marwadi tradition for rakhi which we follow and have seen this since my childhood. We make two identical designs on a small piece of paper and stick it on both sides of the door, mainly on the sides of main door, kitchen door. So these little peices are called Son and they are stuck  a day befor on the doors. Traditionally this is done with limestone water - making a small white surface with limestomne water on both sides of the entrance, letting it dry and then painitng it with geru. But now with recent trends there is lot of fasion in this area too! :)  is my simple take on it. My SIL had sent these small son made of plastic, I stuck them on paper and decorated with 3D Outliner. Do let me know how you liked our little creations!
