Mom and Me Activity

Presidency School RT Nagar hosted its ‘Mom and Me’ event with the invitation extended to Grandmoms too.
We believe that Quality time is vital to parent-child relationships and there is a need to create an occasion – which meant rolling out ‘mommy & me’ activities.
Its rightly said that to a child, love is spelled T-I-M-E. This succinctly states the importance of spending quality time, despite the pandemic enforced togetherness.
Our aim was to create a moment where the duo spent time together to enhance their connection and deposit in the love and memory banks of the children.
Every recall must be of precious moments spent with parents. We wanted to satiate the craving of the little ones for alone time with their parents and through this activity, there was absolutely no need for our kids to clamor for attention all at once.
Students of Grades 1 and 2 were super excited to have their mums come on camera and do loads of activities (unlike the hidden presence during online classes). A kiss, a hug, a cheer and a tear- the Teams Channel saw a surfeit of emotions pervading the scene.
Moms and kids twinned, while some moms were draped in the finery of their moms- the superwomen from whom they derived strength. There was a plethora of talents showcased by the moms and their little kids. This parental talent fest was a cynosure of all eyes. Activities like the Selfie Challenge, Jewellery Making, Crown making (each announcing them the undisputed Mum- Child duo), Treasure hunt and Putting on canvas- their dream vacation.. the list was endless!
Some mums who could not be a part of the event due to ‘work –calling flag’ had sent out ‘Video messages to their children’ and surprised the little ones who would have felt a tad lost, otherwise! The event concluded with a note of appreciation and thanks to parents and students by the COD, Ms Sudha Kalyani. Like we always say- at Presidency, we create memories that last a life time- the rest falls into place, and life happens!
