Kid's Delight Wholesome Snacks Round up - Next theme!

Summer is upon us and we find ways to dodge it. Well almost! One of the first thing that you get to notice is the heat, then is the restless children, trying to find ways to keep themselves occupied and over anxious parents like us, trying to find ways to keep the kids occupied!

Konda has still one exam to go, after which she will have her Summer vacation before the next academic starts. She is carefree to do what she wants for the next 40 days. As every time, I remember my own Summer vacation and the fun days that were, comes to mind. Parents rarely thought much on how to keep us occupied. We used to go out for playing in the morning, come back for lunch, rest for a while and again venture out. This used to be the schedule every single day. Unless we plan for a outdoor vacation.

Sadly though it is no more such an idyllic scene. Kids can hardly venture out, because there isn't enough green places for them to play and it is so HOT!

Parents are forced to keep them indoors and even more frustrated because they now have to find ways to keep them occupied.

This is where you are going to help me! Next theme in the Kid's Delight is around finding out ways to help and give ideas to pressured parents to bang on things that they can do with kids.

You want to know what you got to do? Well post some interesting crafts and other related activities that will engage kids. This may include hand crafts, hand works, just about anything that your kid does or you did as a kid. Get those ideas pouring ok!


Next is about "Cooking with Kids" Now is the time you can introduce them into kitchen. Show them which simple dishes that they can prepare on their own. I have few already in mind for my daughter. So really appreciate if you can throw more ideas on this theme.
