Rocking Beluga Whale Paper Plate Craft for Kids

Our toddler's favourite character from the Disney movie "Finding Dory" was Bailey, the beluga whale. She loved him so much that the first thing she wanted to do on a recent visit to Chicago was to head straight to the Shedd Aquarium and watch the Beluga whales. We all loved Bailey with his "oooooooo" echo-location voice. He was indeed a charming character in the movie. Our toddler visited the beluga exhibition three times in one visit and left the aquarium only after she had her own beluga fur toy to take home!

Today, we decided to make her favourite mammal "beluga" whale as our next rocking paper plate craft. We love how easy and fun rocking paper plate crafts are - last month, we made this cute and easy Rocking Elephant that turned out so beautiful.

Here is how to make the rocking paper plate beluga whale in a few minutes.

Paper Plate Rocking Elephant Craft For Kids

As the saying goes "It's not how many toys you have, it's how much you play with the ones you have that help children grow & learn." In that spirit, we decided to create a toy-craft rocking elephant from a single paper-plate, creating a rocking motion toy for our tot to play with. Talk about achieving two objectives with a single effort - teach them to be creative and get them a toy for playing with later.

So, next time you are wondering about a new toy for your tot, think to make vs buy.

Happy toy-crafting!

World Cup Football Craft For Kids

It's world cup time again in 2018 and football fever is at its peak! Football is considered the ultimate game considering the global nature of its appeal and the suspense each game brings. This was a great time to introduce our tot to this beautiful game and help her understand the game's objective, which is to score a goal on the opposite team's net.

So, we decided to make this "goal score" craft full with dodges and dribbling that would make Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo proud :). It was so much fun!

Hope you are watching the world cup and having a great time rooting for your team.

Go Football!

3 Cheers! - 'Hap Happy Birthday'


"For ages 3 and over", nearly sums the sudden shift a toddler undergoes on turning three. It is more like a coming-of-age for the little ones, who seem to achieve a breakthrough in their mental and emotional capabilities at the turn of the year.

The significant and visible metamorphosis is hard to miss. Suddenly, their speech has exploded and they communicate ceaselessly. They can argue, appease, trick and even crack a joke! Not technically a toddler anymore, they come out of their shelves into more sociable, confident and explorative personalities. They are always on the go, ditching the afternoon nap for good. And of course, they really develop a mind and will of their own.

Previously reserved for the big boys and girls, the whole world of fantastic toys becomes accessible to them. They graduate from 'Lego Duplo' to 'Lego Junior'. A sudden heap of puzzles, board games, construction and role play toys appears surmountable. A plethora of things-to-do while our little bunnies still love to cling on to us!

It is a pleasure to see your baby grow into a more independent individual. But it is also a bittersweet reminder that you cannot hold onto their little selves anymore. After all, looking back, it is the beautiful moments that flash across the mind more than that of worry and trouble.

I reflected on the activities, favourites and relationships of my toddler-graduated son, who turned three recently. I thought it might be a good idea to recount his yesteryear personality and remember it. So, Here it is my as I look back and cherish the memories…

3 Cheers! – ‘Hap Happy Birthday’


Another year passed again, leaving prints of toddle-toes
A telltale of tantrums and mood swings of yesses and noes
The lush of your coiffure, and the milky sniff under your neck
Wrapped in a cosy hug, how we rocked plenty- front and back


A feisty and angry young man, chippy at the slightest trick
Those little fists could slam the table, and roars of cries could tear a brick
The pretend plays are ever so noisy – stomping, pounding, bashing, et al.
A quasi monster often comes alive, post bath time in a nighty growl

Your list of favourites is rather short, the beloved names unchanged all year
Super Spiderman tops the call, the fiery T-Rex absolutely most dear
Climbing, jumping and talking aliens, the colour ‘orange’ and number ‘3’
Surprise egg toys and the humble ice cream, all time precious choices be

Words by the mouthfuls, songs for all animals, All, O hear! hear!
That breezy tickle of tiny lips, as you whisper sweet nothings in my ear
“Why? When? What? Because….” The “Alright” and the toilet talk
Quick retorts and smarty-pants answers, the “follow me” of your neat walk

Serious squabbles with your big brother, smashed up piles of his laboured Lego
You copy all his favourite games. Wherever he is, well, there you go!
Called him a baby and laughed it away, a mean streak every now and then
Oh ‘big boy’, as you like to be known, why bother him with how and when?

“Me want you, me love you, you are beautiful”, how unfeigned is thy flattery
Your version of the Sheeran song, “I’m in love with the shape of you, mummy”
Dad is for piggyback rides, a super sidekick and the best ball boy
You pounce and poke his daddy-tummy, and tickle his ribs, dear fountain of joy

Rolling over to a new year, of bigger age and grown-up ways
My bubbly baby, a tireless toddler, a bittersweet adieu to the carefree days
Every moment, a cherished treasure, strung up on the memory tree
Countless happy days be upon you, our dearest darling, as you turn 3!

Simple Newspaper Flower Craft For Kids

It's important to educate young minds about recycling, reusing and reducing as much as possible so they develop an empathy for the planet and all other life in it. Reusing can take many forms, like in this craft, we leveraged newspaper to create lovely flower petals. This also makes for a creative educational activity where children learn the art of making something out of imagination using something completely different.

All in all, a good activity for children and creating a nice showpiece reused art for the home.

Happy reusing and imagining!

Dad Child Crawl - Father's Day Craft

Dads love their children and children love their dads. It's the perfect play combination when dads get to be childish again and children get, well, a playmate whose sole objective is to entertain them.

Thinking about the upcoming Father's Day, it was great to be reminded of one of the most symbolic and fun child-dad activity - the horse-crawl - with daddy playing the crawl-horse and the child sitting on dad's back as the horse-rider. This sure brought back memories of laughter and joy in our own family.

So, what's your favourite dad-chid play activity? Do tell us in comments below or on our social media pages!

Have a fabulous Happy Fathers Day!

Pete the Cat Paper Bag Puppet

"Not everyone is the same. But being kind is always cool."

Pete the cat is wise and funny. That's why we introduced her to our tot in the last few weeks If our tot adopted Pete's attitude early in her life, she would take a lot less stress and be a happy person.

So, this post is to celebrate this spunky book character in our characteristic craft style - a paper bag puppet craft of Pete as the tooth fairy. It turned out really well with her magic wings while giving our tot some preparation for the future: she will lose some teeth but should she panic? Goodness No! Pete does not panic!

Enjoy making this craft with your little ones and see them pick up some life skills on the side.
