How to engage kids when there is along weekends especially in Bangalore where traffic is a major havoc my concern is always to find best time to reach the place keeping traffic in place so the place to visit will take a back seat even if we are interested in visiting some interesting place .Its always a mall visit which is clubbed with some grocery shopping and window shopping where kids get bored moms sometime has to leave the things they have shopped at billing counters one because of long ques and other kid would have lost all the patience would be so cranky that will end with some junk food.
Next option was to find a place that kids would you love and enjoy and the way to it should not have bumper to bumper traffic. After talking to few friends decided a place Innovative Film city. Since i live in South Bangalore took Nice road to reach Innovative Film city around 10 am. Entry charges before 3pm is 599 after they would charge 399 per person but i bought tickets on Groupon www.groupon.in that cost me 399 only.
My daughter was super excited as she arrived at the place mom is this a palace ? With lots Questions in her mind she kept moving as we entered a group of performers were dancing to the hit songs of Bollywood she could not stop herself started to dance for some time then her concentration moved towards people who queuing for their turn for Bow and arrow. Quickly she ran i assumed she will just go and grab a bow no i was wrong instead she went and stood in Que and waited for her turn that did amaze me but later took her dads help yeah we did it .Then moved on checked few footwear she was so happy to get some pair for her ethnic wear.
Magic show by a magician from Rajasthan was outstanding best part of the show was kids were involved in some tricks specially the one which left fragrance on the kids hand of the flower which children named my daughter was literally mesmerized with the unique experience and wanted everyone to smell her hand. Took a horse ride her mom and dad running beside her for most funny part she couldn't stop giggling the whole ride then some saw farm and pet animals. Visit old ancient home and the things used in early days kept her amazed
