Princess Z Loving Her New Construction Kit

Princess Z was super excited to see her new construction toy and started building with it right away.Though in the beginning she needed a bit of guidance to hammer and twist but she loved it.It took time for Princess Z to learn but by the end of the week she could build things on her own and expand her imagination….At first we started off with a simple structure and then practiced and moved on building more complicated ones together.We even added our own mechanism in a few).You can say we ditched everything else and constructed something new every other week 🙈.

The Simple Structure We Started Off With
Hammering The Parts In Place 🔨
TaaDaa!! It’s Done
Tricycle In The Making
Building And Adding Some Upgrades
The Beautiful Structure We Built Together

This wooden construction kits consist of 222 parts including the building instruction and tools.It is a lot of fun and a great way of keeping the kids busy in something useful.Also it encourages the development of children’s imagination and helps them bring their ideas to life.

TALES FROM THE TREASURE CHEST

Tales for the Treasure Chest written by Ayesha Marfani

Many of you might not know this by I am a book lover and love reading books (I don’t get much time now though due to my mommy duties) but I encourage Princess Z to do so and not a day goes by when I don’t read her,her favorite story book or narrate her a children’s story book through which she can learn something new.

Recently I took some time out and got the opportunity to read ‘Tales from the Treasure Chest’ and I loved it.This book is written and illustrated in a such beautiful way that I wanna tell you guys about it.

The book ‘Tales from the Treasure Chest’ is a collection of 3 short stories written by Ayesha Marfani (her first published children book) published by Crimson Cloak publishing.

About the Author 👩🏻
with multiple degrees in psychology, commerce, and education, Ayesha Marfani has always had an avid passion for learning. Her love of reading led her to take her writing hobby and turn it into a career.Her inspiration stems from her 9 siblings and her own family that support her passion for writing. A homeschooling educator, Ayesha understands woes that arise when one does not have a voice. Her work with counseling produces a unique perspective that allows her to take everyday triggers and weave stories that inspire and educate.

About the Book 📖

The book ‘Tales from the Treasure Chest’ is a collection of 3 short witty stories with moral lessons:

The first story tilted ‘Exhortation Valley’ is a story about two twins Sara and Saira who are not satisfied with themselves.
Saira-a beautiful girl but still ungrateful with the way she looks and wishing for more while her twin sister Sara-with beautiful pastel skin:still ungrateful for not being as beautiful as her sister.

One day they learn a lesson to appreciate the blessings of Allah and be content.Allah has created us with highest perfection and the story revolves around these facts,teaching the child to be satisfied with their looks.

The second story titled ‘Small Feet,Big Shoes’. evolves around the bitter relationship of Zainab and Ahmad and their parents.How the two kids exchange roles with their parents thinking that being a parent is an easy job and the parents accept the challenge as they want them to know that being a parent is not as easy as they think.I won’t tell you who wins the battle!.Read the book yourself to find out 🙂

The third and the final story ‘Being Human is Being Everything’ is a story about a boy Abdul Jalil whose fathers thinks he can’t do anything in life.Everyone around him thinks he’s a loser and can’t achieve anything.Struck by those words he decides to go on a journey to find a job, and prove his worth but becomes corrupt, a cheat,fraud and a cruel vicious person.Later on realizing that being a good human is a bigger challenge than having everything else.

Why Read This Book?

This 40 page book is an interesting and a wonderful read for children 6-10 years old/(also very interesting to narrate it to younger kids).A book which teach the kids as well as the parents moral lessons like

1.One should always be grateful with what they have rather than complain about what they don’t. (An important lesson every one should be thought)

2.Parent should be lenient with their children…avoiding too much strictness as this can lead their children to hate them.Similarly, children should be aware that being a parent is not an easy task and an ultimate responsibility.

3.Money is not everything in the world.

Tales From The Treasure Chest is an excellent read that will make your child know the importance of and make them learn and understand the little things in life

I loved everything about this book and think it’s an extraordinary read for both parents and children.

If you love reading than I highly recommend you get your hands on this book. 👍🏻

School stuff for this year

SCHOOL STUFF FOR THIS YEAR FS2

This year as Princess Z starts her FS2 stage at her new big school.There were many more school items added on my list than last year.Down below are the things I bought for her this term:

UPixel Bag
This year we didn’t had to run around looking for a backpack.This pixel bag was given as a gift to Princess Z and she already had made up her mind to use it when she starts school.Everything is great about this bag from the colors to the space inside,the side pockets and specially how you can change the designs and get creative with the pixels on the front.

I went with the winged heart design👇🏻

Designs You Can Go For

The backpack comes with a packet of pixels and a guide on how to create the designs.But the pixels provided are not enough so you need to buy extra colored pixels packet available.

The Pixel Chips

The UPixel bag is available at Hamleys or you can order it online through Mumzworld👇🏻

YumBox
Princess Z will be taking the same lunch box this year as it’s her favorite and we couldn’t find a new one just like this (glowing ✨)in stores.One of the most convenient ones I came across and available in the market.This Bento lunch box is something I highly recommend.It comes build in with 4 compartments to give your child balanced and proportional meals.Something I have always wished for, not worrying about food getting mixed up together. Its totally leak proof ,very light weighted and easy to clean.Its also easy to open for those tiny hands 🙂 .The one main feature kids would love are the glow in the dark stars on the lid

The 4 Compartments Yumbox Lunch Box
The Glow In The Dark Stars ✨ Feature

I bought this one from DB babies store but there are many other designs available online at mumzworld or virgin megastore.

Eco-Vessel Bottle
Again like last year I thought of going with an insulated feature bottle .It was hard to find many designs in it but I am glad I visited Virgin Megastore and found it.This 30z (400ml) Eco-vessel water bottle fits in perfectly.They are easy to use.Keeping the water cool for max 8-10 hours is perfect.It has an easy drinking system. This bottle is just the right size and easy to carry.

School Shoes
I think this is one of the hardest things to buy in the school season.Running around shops trying on again and again to get the perfect comfort level,fitting and size.Alhamdulillah this year we didn’t had to run around much as we got what we wanted at Shoe Mart.We were looking out for shoes that Princess Z could wear/take off easily by herself at school.Something with no laces.We checked shops like Adidas and Nike but the shoes there were not satisfying.The best thing about the shoes we bought from Shoe Mart is that they are very light in weight and easy to wear,just like the way we wanted. 👍🏻
*Shoe Mart has the widest range of school shoes than any other shop at affordable prices if your still looking out for shoes.

White Sports Shoes AED 69/-
Minnie Mouse Black Shoes AED 139/-

*check out Shoe Mart at MOE (Mall of the Emirates) for more variety.
