Bandar’s Zoo

22 Jul

Bandar comes home from school around 5 pm each day and we have the whole evening of play ahead of us. How exactly do you entertain a 22 month old , finish the last bit of office work, manage dinner prep for her and rest of the family members,wash bottles for her bed time, and feed her a meal  – all between the hours of 5 – 8 pm?
I am forced to come up with new , creative games to play each day. We throw birthday parties for her toys, do some finger painting and of course play with her blocks. This kid loves building things – towers, castles, cities. Maybe the architecture gene from my in laws side of the house.
Anyway , after a zoo visit s few weeks ago it was but natural to build our own. With a mix of 2 different types of blocks and a medley of wild and domestic animals from Crawford Market, Mumbai , we are proud to present to you Bandar’s zoo.


Of course you need a ticket to enter. The tissue strip being held by the dolls in the car is their huge ticket!
I am personally scared about the safety of the zebra and mule,in such close proximity to the lions and cheetah.
Also I doubt our bear cage meets bare minimum specifications- looks more than a little cramped for our lone bear.

I just had enough time to take a few pics before Bandar insisted on walking through the zoo and destroying it!

    That lion and cheetah are vegetarians.

    This is a great idea. I am always on the lookout for new ideas to play with kids. I will steal this also I am pretty sure my twins wont have any patience to sit down to do this. 🙂 Bandar is adorable.

      Thank you! Tell me about it.. I need fresh ideas too! She gets bored of frequently done activities. I am thinking about buying paints for her but then don’t want take away the novelty of painting at daycare…its one of the main reasons she goes. Need some fresh activities that don’t mess up the place too much
