I had my season’s first mango milkshake yesterday. The ‘Banganapalli‘ totally swept me off to dream land. To the last day of the exam, as the bell rings signalling the end of the tortuous annual exam, I would look forward to the beautiful summer ahead. Luscious mangoes, loads of books to read (yeah, I was such a bookworm!) and of course, those little crafty things that my mom would indulge us in. I’ve made silly looking paper decorations, painted garrish-looking women (complete with bindi and mogra, like all nice Madras girls would do!) and tried making frozen jam sandwiches.
So this summer along with the wonderful mangoes, I am unveiling my summer kits for children. Long in the making, they’ve turned out great. I’ve seen all those traditional paisleys and flowers doing the rounds in various block printing kits. Somehow, I think imprinting an elephant’s rear or an auto rickshaw is far more an enjoyable activity than doing the same with that intricate looking paisley! If you are a 7 yr old, what do you care about intricacy anyway!
The process is fairly simple and has been detailed out in the kit, step by step. The kit comprises of 2 interesting blocks, two fabric colors (best quality Camlin colors), a sponge for application, a piece of fabric and 2 sheets of paper. The designs are straight out of a child’s imagination.
Here is a glimpse of the what’s in the kit. To buy our range of craft kits for children, click here.
