Its craft time...

Anirudh was a bit cranky since evening. He kept complaining of ear ache. I gave him homeopathy medicines and it helped a bit it seems but till not his happy chirpy self.

So to distract him from his pain, I asked him if he wants to do some craft using egg carton that we had. When I asked him to paint them with whatever colors he wants, he was pretty excited. He has always loved to paint.

So I first cut up the egg cavities into flower shapes and then he painted them.

Then I cut up the leaves and he painted them green.

He had just finished a juice in the evening so I had a straw available from it.


Thus using just the carton and the colors and a straw we made these flowers!! It took us only about 20 min to make these.

So what started as an distracting activity turned out looking so nice :)
