The Twins at Mahur Dam

In these pandemic times when travel for a child is restricted, having a day filled with fun with nature without the worry of overcrowding becomes a blessing. We found this gem of a place after a suggestion from a dear friend last week. Nestled among acres of marigold and lilies in full bloom, teak trees and a variety of crops there is Mahur dam. The dam is situated next to Mahur village which is located in Purandhar Tehsil of Pune district in Maharashtra, India. It belongs to Desh or Paschim Maharashtra region. It is situated 25km away from Saswad and 45km away from Pune. It takes around 1 and a half hour from Pune. The roads are amazingly good barring the last 10 minutes or so. Mahur is a small village with a population of around 3000 with its own Gram Panchayat and School.

REVIEW: IKEA MÅLA Easel, softwood, white (Article no: 301.678.52)

Protected by Copyscape

Author: Gauri Kshirsagar

I regularly explain concepts to my twins on a white board, which is mounted at my height therefore it becomes a bit tiresome when they want to use it.  I had been looking for an easel, which could be easily folded and stored. One of my twin prefers a white board and the other a black board with chalk when I ask them to just express themselves, to make sure they understand a concept by having them write it out or depict it, or explain concepts and ideas in a visual manner. I chose the IKEA Easel for it’s multipurpose use. The easel has a whiteboard on one side and a blackboard on the other with a space for a roll of paper in between.

Copying adults and role playing everyday situations is important for children throughout the world.

They encourage creativity, role play, language development and more. And it will be played with daily for years and years.
