Coloring Books

Kids love colours! Get lots of colouring books, crayons, coloured pencils – you get the drift. Nowadays there are colouring books available for adults too. As per recent studies, these books help you de-stress. Share the excitement with your kids! Bonus – The completed pages can be used for few crafts in the home (tutorials soon to follow). 

Below are the links to buy the books:-

Adult Colouring Books

Children’s Colouring Books

Play Dough/ Clay

Another winner that will surely keep the kids busy for hours. It’s all up to you – whether you want to use play dough (re-useable) or the modelling clay to make some beautiful stuff with your kids (something to keep in their bedroom/ family room as a decor). I will be making few of these in my future posts, please watch out for those.

Play Dough

Modelling Clay


This is one of my favourites! I just love jigsaw puzzles, so much so, I had asked my brother for 2000 pieces puzzles for Rakhi (weird, right!). You can even buy these as per age groups at Amazon. Nowadays there are so many 3D puzzles available as well. Pick the one you love, complete it with your kids and put it on display! Below is the link:-

There is nothing more relaxing than a new hobby you and your kids can share together. And there are so many options to choose from – right from crochet to paper mache or quilling… The list goes on. These craft kits contain everything you and your child needs to complete a project or two along with the instructions. Happy Crafting!!!
