MIGHTY MUMS MEET UP

June 23rd, along with various mom bloggers of in and around Delhi, the little one and I were invited to this super interesting event held by Palmers India and hosted by Funderland India.

Before I begin with the how abouts of the event, I’d like to draw your attention to how much fun my little chap had and I’m so glad we were a part of this event.

The reason for this happiness is the gala time we had at this indoor play area. Funderland not only impressed me with its facilities but also how warm the staff is. Every wish that was made by either the moms or the kids, was immediately fulfilled, thanks to the co-owner and Senior MD – Mr. Mayank Aggarwal, who made it a point to personally look after each and every one of our requirements.

What I liked most about Funderland is its hygiene (socks only policy) as soon as you enter the place and how they have divided the area for various activities so thoughtfully.

Seeing a ball pool the moment we entered the place made my little one so excited, he pulled his shoes off and dived into it immediately. A lovely carousel, tattoo artist, trampoline are few of the many activities available to keep the little ones occupied for hours. The kinetic sand pool kept him hooked for the longest time, post which the tattoo artist grabbed his attention and I felt free-er than ever. The staff is so courteous, they took care of him while I was busy with the moms meet up.

I also cant miss talking about the scrumptious snacks and meals we were offered during the course of the event, with extremely sincere staff who thoughtfully planned the meals to the T such that the moms and kids both could enjoy the same meal. The best part, they had the oreo shake for the kids and yum cold coffee for mums, that took my heart.

Not to forget the fact that Funderland has so much to do in the most reasonable prices and also some great deals for kids birthday parties and get togethers.

Apart from so much for the kiddo, there was a lot more for me too. Palmers, a brand that most moms are well aware of, especially during our pregnancies, introduced some new range of products. We have used their cocoa butter and stretch marks cream as a saviour during our pregnancy but what interested me here was the skin therapy oil. Loaded with vitamin E it heals problem skin with dark spots and lines and wrinkles, a must have for anyone above 30. Palmers was so generous with gifting all moms and kids goodie boxes with so lovely shampoos, lotions, conditioners and what not. All this is easily available on the Nykaa.com website.

If all that wasn’t enough, the gorgeous Dr Mahima Bakshi was there to chit chat with the moms discussing our pregnancies and diet and skin care related issues. She introduced her new book called Birthing Naturally, which is available on amazon.in and I’m sure is a great buy for expecting moms considering how well versed she is with the subject, being a lactation consultant too.

5 Exciting games for Kids’ Birthday Parties

1. Fire in the mountain: Players run in a circle until the leader keeps saying fire in the mountain, run, run, run. In the end the leader says a number in which the players have to group. Whoever doesn’t end up in a group of the said number of players is out.

 

2. Simon says: The players have to perform a task the leader gives after saying ‘Simon says’ (eg. dance, stand on one leg etc) but not perform the task if he says it without saying Simon says before announcing the task. If any player performs the task without the leader saying Simon says he/ she is out.

 

3. Name Housie: Kids write their names on a piece of paper. The leader calls out random letters of the alphabet and the players keep cancelling out the announced letters out of their names. Whoever gets all their letters cancelled, keeps getting out of the game. The last player remaining wins.

 

4. Musical Statue-Over: The leader keeps playing music on and off and the players have to dance on the music. While the music is off the players have to be on statue mode. Whoever moves is out. Players who keep getting out can try to make the players laugh or move by performing funny acts.

 

5. Charades: Make folded slips with general words like airplane, watch, table etc. In two teams each player will be given 1 minute to enact the maximum number of slips for their teams to guess the right word. Whichever team guesses the maximum correct words wins. You would have to make many slips and this game goes on very rapidly.
