Having donned various caps of editor, freelance writer and tech writer in my previous avatars, I'm now a stay-at-home mom to two annoying brats. When not shopping online, event planning, or trying to make 'natural' choices for my family, you can find me poring and drooling over food blogs and baking (occasionally).

Learn Roller Skating!

Where: L&T Serene County, Gachibowli

When: Mon, Tue, Wed 5-6 pm

Whom: Beginners and Advanced

If your kids are anything like mine and get bored easily with a particular activity, then here's something worth checking out - roller skating.  These skating classes run by professional former national champion Kiranmayee Valluri promise to be different. Starting with the basics, and after achieving adequate balance, children will be taught speed, moving onto artistic and dance skating. It will not only be a fun-filled activity but also one that improves flexibility, strengthens muscle tone, giving a superb cardio-vascular workout with a low impact on your joints. Kiranmayee is an expert coach drawing from her own experiences and offers advice about the right kind of skates for your child, the correct technique of falling, and stopping, among others.

Art Curriculum

Where: Treasure House, Banjara Hills

When: Tue, Thu (4-6.30 pm)

Whom: 2-10 year-olds

ArtInspire is a structured art program for three different age-appropriate categories of children-

-- Messy Artist (2-4 years)

-- Art Explorer ( 5-7 years)

-- Young Artist (8- 10 years)

While it is structured in that the art sessions are planned with a "goal of the week", the sessions (8 per month) themselves are really open-ended. They aim to 'inspire' rather than 'instruct', thus encouraging creativity and confidence, along with fine-tuning the motor movement.

Alladin-Chicha (Children's play in Hindi)

Where: La Makaan

When: June 29 (7.30 pm)

Whom: 6+

Tickets: Rs 100

The most famous of the Arabian Nights stories, Alladin and his magic lamp is being brought to life on stage - but with a twist! Imagine Alladin born in Hyderabad. And then again, imagine the characters in the play talking in the typical Hyderabadi dialect! Set in Hyderabad with the backdrop of the Golkonda Fort, this play promises a riotous evening of slapstick humor. If your kids have been brought up on the Disney adaptation of the same tale, maybe it's time to culturally acquaint them with this musical comedy.

Handwriting Program

Where: Books N More

When:  17 June - 17 July (5-6 pm)

Whom: 6-16

Whenever we talk of a good handwriting, we're referring to a penmanship in which the letters are joined or flowing together. This is Cursive writing. The origin of the cursive method is associated with improving writing speed considerably. But it wasn't until much later that Dr. Maria Montessori advocated the lower case cursive because the curved lines are a natural extension of the child's hand. In fact according to the Montessori school of thought, children who learn to read cursive writing make a quick and smooth transition to reading print. In countries like ours, proficiency in cursive writing is regarded as a sign of literacy. So if you're looking at helping your child improve her handwriting and pick up the right techniques under an expert, there's a month-long program doing just that.
