*soil is not included so you will need some of your own.

1.So we started of by filling in some soil in the garden bowl..Filling it up nearly to the top and firming it down to make a smooth and stable surface.

Fairy Garden
Step 1

2.Once we were done! We assembled the fairy cottage and placed it on to the soil in the center close to the rim of the bowl,pressing it in,a bit.

Our Cat Was Enjoying This As Well 🙈

3.Next with the help of a teaspoon we made a small hole in the soil on the left side of the bowl.Placing the shell in the hollow making sure the sides were leveled with the soil.

4.Then using the multi- colored gravel we created a path from the cottage to the opposite side of the bowl.

5.In the spare area of the garden we placed the washing line poles(cutting the cord to the length required).and hanged the pink blanket using the pegs.

Already Lookign Good …Isn’t It!

6.Next,we evenly scattered the grass seeds over the bare areas of the soil.(Sprinkling water over the seeds to make them a bit damp)

Almost Done

7.Now once everything was done it was time to add the decorations,flowers and mushroom and we did..placing them randomly around empty spaces.

Looks Wonderful ❤️

8.Last but not the least we poured a little water in the shell to make a fairy pond and Finally we sprinkled a bit of fairy dust(stars) all over…adding a bit of fairy magic.

And voila…it’s done … the only thing we need to do now is wait and watch the grass grow.

Our Little Fairy Garden

*you can add in a few decorations of your own if you like…like pebbles,small plants,sea shells,shiny objects and so much more..

I don’t know where to find it here in the UAE as it was gifted to us but you can check it out online on https://www.fishpond.com

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.

* 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!

The Inside Of The Invitation Cards
Sealed With A Hand Tied Blue Bow

The next most important thing we had to do was to look for a party event company who could arrange kids entertainment for us.

Finding a good party organizer was a challenge.We contacted many but got a negative response from them all. Some were fully booked and some didn’t have the items we wanted.After wasting a week on phone calls and visits , our hard work paid off and we finally managed to get things arranged/prepared for the event.

THE EVENT PLANNER

Twinkle party events : We got it organized by them.This event company was very affordable.Offering many party packages to chose from (according to ones requirements).The package we went with cost us approx 3300 AED inclusive of (all the items below) 👇🏻

This was the biggest hassle for our evening party and huge space. We needed enough light to lighten up each and every corner so we made our way to Bur Dubai to a shop called Tarun Lights.Tarun lights located in the heart of Meena Bazaar is a place for all your electric needs.They sell all kinds of festive lights at reasonable rates. The lights we bought were 50m long and costed us 70 AED only.They fitted in perfectly (we got them fixed from one end to the other) but were not as bright as we wanted so our next stop was Dragon Mart 1. We picked up more heavier and brighter ones from here at a very reasonable rate as well.

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.
