DIY- Kids Book Storage

As the kids enter schools, the one thing which gets added year-on-year in our homes are books-  school books, notebooks, extra books, story books, activity books, previous year's books, project books and worksheet books etc. And few, like me, preserve their own books too, from their colleges and universities. 

Their storage is messy and often becomes a huge challenge. Taking inspiration from a file folder (in a mall), I made a DIY book folder, during first lockdown, from a big surf box. I used ARIEL Matic large box. (Wonderful surf it is!!!). Moreover, the box is sturdy and durable and it can take good amount of weight. After all the surf packets are used, don't throw away the box. Make it a great book storage avenue.


Let's see the method: 

1. Take the box and cut all its flaps.

2. We get a rectangular box. On the side with smaller width, mark two points, approximately 12 cm high, from the bottom. Join the points and make a straight line.

3. Now, extend the points to the side and draw a straight line till opposite corner on both sides.

4. Cut, cut, cut!!! along the line.

5. Your DIY book storage is ready. Cover it with colourful papers or gift wrapping sheets.


You can also use them as organizers inside your wardrobes. They can be used to segregate books of different types. They can be used to store some board games or kids games. They can also be used to save important files and folders sequentially and systematically. 



Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Happy DIY!!!

Poem: A Mother's First Day @ School

From tummies to laps, from crawls to jumping jacks...Time just flies with little ones. Then comes the day, when these naughty champs have to begin their journey called life. First step: The 'Preschool', after which they won't be wholly ours. Beginning of school years brings a huge relief to mum's life but the first day of separation @ school is the heaviest for mom and child both. Here, I have tried to pen a poem which explains the emotions of a mother on the very first day of preschool. A Mother's First Day @ School In new uniform Let me behold this sight. My little one Is grown up now Then why is this fright? Big school, Big classrooms, Much bigger than her height. Am I ready? Is she ready? For life's new flight. Racing heart, Welled up eyes, That tiny wrist held tight. Pecked, Hugged, " I will be outside " Oops! I just lied. Quiet home, Hushed toys, And so is my appetite. Fidgety, Jittery Couple of hours, Hope all is alright. Tick-tock, tick-tock L

The Lost Letter

Date: 18.05.23 From: Mumbai  To: Delhi  Sent by: an 8 year old To: a 6 year old sister Even after 21 days, the letter has not reached. Is it lost???? Will it reach its destination???? But when???? Summer Holidays After finishing multiplication and division sums one morning, I told my 8 year old to bring her English Workbook to revise 'Writing a Friendly Letter' or what is also called an informal letter. I gave her the  topic- "Write a friendly letter and invite your friend to come and spend her summer vacations with you."  She wrote the letter in her rough notebook. I corrected a few grammatical errors, spellings and punctuation marks and told her to revise the same. Then I went to the kitchen to prepare lunch. After half an hour or so, she came to me with a colourful letter written to her sister (masi's daughter- 6 yrs old) and inviting her to spend summer vacations with her. She said, "Mamma, I would give this letter to her when she comes here. I am keeping

PlantsπŸŒ±πŸ€πŸƒ: The symbol of hope, love and care

 Loving the plants and being a Theist comes naturally to anyone. You can't force anyone to love plants or believe in God. But I feel, both plants and God are not at all bothered by one's disbeliefs. They continue to spread their love and care, even if not asked for. On my birthday, two years back, I decided to add greens to my new home. Trip to the nursery nearby, and came home some beautiful Areca palms, Bamboo palms, Crotons, Raphis palm, Dracaenas, Spider plants and lots of colourful seasonal flowers.  A month later, we decided to visit our parents, in another city, for about a week. The only thing bothered me was the upkeep of my lovely plants, but I knew all the species I have will certainly give me a green welcome when I will be  back. (watering the plants when on the go) The destiny had other plans and I contracted Covid there, just 2 days before we had to leave for home. A week-long trip extended to 25 odd days. I had arranged for a water system for my flowering plants
