LITTLE LEGENDS INTRODUCES WORLDS BEST EDUCATION CURRICULUMS

I was honored to be invited by Little legends the other day to the sports launch of little knickers and teddy tennis at Sportsmania JLT. This was the very first time Princess Z participated in outdoor sports or games and I was really happy to see her energy level and delication.Even though the weather was not on our side, we were having a great time nibbling on the snacks (provided by The Change Initiative & More Cafe) at the same time  watching our little ones participate. Heres all you need to know about the programmes to keep your kids actively busy at the same time entertained for hours

Play,Have Fun & Get Active

LITTLE LEGENDS

Little Legends was established to give pre-school and nursery children between the ages of 18 months to 7 years in the UAE an early opportunity to discover sports in a fun, welcoming and pressure-free environment.

That is why they have introduced two of the world’s best sports education curriculums; Little Kickers and Teddy Tennis.These two programs have been developed in the UK with the best and professional certified coaches, child experts and nursery school teachers in order to ensure that children are getting the best.

LITTLE KNICKERS

Little Kickers focuses football to children in a fun way.Aiming children between 18 months to 7 years.The program also provides many educational and important pre-school learning concepts such as colour and number recognition, sharing, teamwork, following instructions and using imagination.

Little Kickers has four different football classes tailored to four different age groups:

* Little Kicks : 18 months – 2 yrs 3 months*
* Junior Kickers : 2 – 3 1/2 yrs
* Mighty Kickers : 3 1/2 – 5 yrs
* Mega Kickers : 5 – 7 yrs

and requires parent participation.

TEDDY TENNIS

Teddy Tennis is a curriculum based sports program developed in the UK that inspires children aged 2 to 6 years to get active and learn to play tennis. It works by combining Music, Pictures and Teddy Bear Characters into a totally interactive learning adventure that young children love.

It is taught using the Visual Auditory Kinesthetic (VAK) learning style. Applying this learning approach to teaching has proved to be very effective, particularly for young children and works brilliantly in Teddy Tennis lessons – they’ll see it, they hear it, they do it and they get it!

Teddy Tennis has seven different tennis classes tailored to the following age categories and levels:

* Tiny Teddies : 2 – 3 yrs (beginners only)
* Teddy Teams : 3 – 4 1/2 yrs (beginners, improvers, intermediate)
* Teddy Teams : 4 1/2 – 6 yrs (beginners, improvers, intermediate)

Tried and testing in over 20 countries across 5 continents, and with over 50,000 kids, these activities are also proven to aid the child’s early development skills and give them an opportunity to build and improve their self-confidence.

Oli Oli Edutainment Center

Oli Oli Edutainment Center

OLi OLI EDUTAINMENT CENTER

It was a pleasure to be invited to the sneak peak preview of Oli Oli before it opened its doors to the public 2 weeks ago.There are only a few places in Dubai that the whole family can enjoy indoors during Summer and Oli Oli (meaning Joy in Hawaii), has become one of them.Dubai’s first interactive museum and located in Al Quoz (beside Oasis Center) is hours of fun.Me,my sister and my 4 year old princess had a great time exploring and experiencing the activities through the 8 galleries of Oli Oli museum

Read through and you will know why spending three and an half hour there was the best time investment of our day.

When we entered the museum our first stop was the Air Gallery,where we learned about the power of Air.The main attraction of this gallery was the wall of tubes which was all about putting in pieces of orange and pink pieces of fabric,through one side of the tube and seeing them being blown away through and out of the tubes.Not only this there were many more interesting things to do like flying away paper planes,getting a ball through a circle with the power of air,the hurricane stimulater and much more.

Our next stop was the Toshi Net.Built by the Japanese artist Toshiko MacAdam.This structure took almost an year to built and is made out of brightly colored crocheted and knitted nylon weighting almost a 1000 kilos in total. I wasn’t allowed to go inside (no adults are allowed inside the structure due to weight and height restrictions) but it was great to msee Princess Z enjoying her time jumping,climbing and swinging around it.

Next came the Creative Lab where princess Z and I built a robot 🤖 to draw on the page for us while my sister made one for herself on the other side of the table.How we built one was the interesting part..Firstly we chose a base (a plastic jar or a little box),them taped around markers (as many colors as we like) then came in the machine which made the robot move around.Once we were done we moved on to the other section of the lab the Construction Section where we built a star together using sticks and rubber bands.

Before moving on we grabbed a bit at the La Petite Tree House Cafe.

Loved The Interiors Specially The Hanging Plant Crates

Then we made our way to the upper floor of the museum…moving in towards the room with black curtains called Future Park.This room was all about spending time coloring pictures of sea animals or cars scanning them on a scanner and seeing them appear on the digital wall.Princess Z had a lot of fun spotting her creation and following their journey from one end to another swirling,twirling and moving along with them .Not only this we also played with the glow in the dark balls on the other side of the room.

The room where we spent the most time was Cars&Ramps, where we build Cars from Lego to slide them down the ramps and hoops.Unfortunately we didn’t succeed in getting our cars through the hoop but it was great to see the effort my daughter and the other kids around were putting in to modeling  their cars.

Next on the other side was the Toddler Room.Even though my daughter is not a toddler anymore she enjoyed her time playing around with wooden toys and building a house with the material provided (like pieces of textiles,hooks and ropes).Not to forget the Quiet Room where the little ones can take a nap whenever necessary.

The last space we visited was the Water Space where Princess Z had a blast playing around with water.This place was all about washing cars,shooting canon balls with the force of water,watching whirlpools and getting soaked in the rain 🌧.

IMP Note: its always great to carry extra pair of clothing as there are high chances of getting wet while having fun.

BALLOONEE-MAKE YOUR OWN BALLONS 

Special occasions play a huge part in ours life’s whether they are birthdays,anniversaries,graduations etc. I believe they are the best way to impress and express your love to someone.

I always make sure no matter what occasion it is it should be celebrated in a special way and the decoration should be A one (the best).

There are no parties without decorations and no decorations without balloons.Balloons 🎈 are a must in every occasion and they play a huge part in each celebration 🎉.

Many of you,like me might have struggled to leave home and reach the party shop before closing time to get a bunch of inflated balloons 🎈 at midnight. Haven’t you?(Most of the shop I know close at 10:00pm).But What if I told you now there is an easier way to celebrate occasions anytime anywhere. 😄😁😆

Recently I got introduced to Balloonee-Make your own balloons on my parents anniversary and what can I say,it indeed made their day special and my life easier.Before I tell you what exactly it is ?Here’s a peek of the decorations I did on my parents anniversary with Balloonee 👇🏻.

There’s Never To Much Balloons 🎈
Adding A Bit More 🎈
The Over All View

*All the balloon decorations are done with the help of Balloonee.Pretty isn’t it!.Doesn’t the room look fabulous 😄.

Here’s everything you need to know about Balloonee 👇🏻

What is Balloonee-Make you own balloons?

Well this is a new convenient way of celebrating occasions.Balloonee introduced by Brother Gas is basically a Helium (Portable Cylinder) Disposable Party Kit thats all about filling up your own balloons (according to your decoration needs),with an easy to use helium tank and customizing your occasions anytime anywhere.

The Standard Balloonee-Make your own balloons Kit Consists Of All The Items In The Picture
Totally Easy & Simple To Use

Balloonee-Make your own balloons comes in 2 sizes

1.Helium Disposable Standard Party Kit Box –This kit box consists of a yellow portable light weighted helium filled tank(8.9 ft), 30 assorted color latex balloons and a spool of white ribbon.This easy to use tank fills up to 30, 9″ latex balloons ; 16, 18″ foil/Mylar balloons or 16, 11″ latex balloons.This kit is surely perfect for all occasions or celebrations 🎉.

Standard Party Kit Box

and  2.Helium Disposable Jumbo Party Kit Box- This kit box also consists of a yellow portable light weighted helium tank (14.9ft) and a spool of white ribbon but with 50 assorted colored latex balloons.(that’s why it’s called Jumbo 😊)This easy to use tank fills up to 50′, 9″ latex balloons; 27′, 11″ latex balloons; or 27, 18″ foil/Mylar balloons.This kit is perfect for massive birthday parties or celebrations.

Jumbo Party Kit Box

*Both these kits also include a guide to help you follow the instructions on how to use? and tank disposal after use.

What I love about Balloonee is that it’s  easy to use (totally a piece of cake 😊) and you have no limitations,(well on the number of balloons you do)but still you can mix and match your favorite balloon colors and shapes, for your decorations and party preparations anytime and anywhere.(you can even carry these kit around 🚗 and surprise someone last minute).The only thing is that these tanks are not refillable and must be disposed after usage (when your done just buy another one 😊).Also it does say that you can fill up 30 latex but it does only fills up 22-23. (2 got busted and the rest (x5) were left out)Nevertheless Balloonee- Make your own balloon is a great idea and concept.This simple to use kit is definitely a requirement for all your party needs.Whether it’s at midday or midnight Balloonee-Make your own balloons 🎈have surely got you covered.

The prices are affordable as well
Standard size kit will cost you 129 AED
Jumbo size kit will cost you 199 AED
