Toiing Quarantivities: Engaging Kids At Home | Age 8+ Years

Toiing Quarantivities: Engaging Kids At Home | Age 8+ Years

We believe that Play is the best way for our kids (and for us) to learn, and become better people in the process. As an extension of our love for play, we began Quarantivities, live sessions to keep kids engaged during the lock down with a bunch of fun activities.

We have created WhatsApp Groups where we will send newer ways to keep our kids engaged indoors in the coming days as we make do with limited play options. You can look forward to fun Indoor Play Ideas, Quick Recipes, Workout Ideas, Book Reviews and Puzzles for kids in the coming weeks.

Sign up with us by simply messaging 'Yes' to +91 8657553470
