The New Year always brings with it a whiff of freshness, a burst of energy. The challenge often is to keep it up throughout the year. The challenge intensifies when it comes to kids: having to often catch up with their developing worldviews and curiosity, and also share the responsibility of shaping it. Often, we don’t need much more than just a little- little reminders, tools, tidbits, and nudges can go a long way in making the year totally fruitful. A Kids Activity Calendar could be the simple tool you are looking for.
However, there’s one problem. Kids usually do not find traditional calendars that interesting.
Traditional calendars usually carry only dull reminders of national holidays, stock visuals and dates after dates.
Here’s a refreshing change.
The Iconiq Colours of India calendar brings a refreshing twist to the purpose of calendars – featuring 12 iconic Indian shades.
It’s astonishing what you can learn from one little color. There are quirky stories (“Where did Khaki come from?”). There are tidbits of facts (like the one about denim jeans). You can go on a little treasure hunt (“find a flower this spring”).
The calendar is uniquely India-themed with a wealth of information behind every enticing color of India, capturing the richness and depth of each color.
Customizations, such as putting a child’s name on it, are available (for a nominal fee of Rs. 100/-).
There’s one more amazing thing. They also have a ‘Languages Of India’ Kids Activity Calendar 2020, which is equally well-designed and thought through.
