Sanaya S

Corona is here but we will do all it takes to be safe and keep others safe!

With schools shutdown, Sanaya Sutone a very active pre-schooler decided to take control of her schedule.

Morning starts with a healthy breakfast of cereal or scrambled eggs. Schools are on a remote learning schedule and the day begins with circle time singing Days of the week, months of the year, weather monitoring and some exercises. A snack comprising of fruits or a cookie maybe at halftime followed by an art project for motor skills and a read aloud session with mommy or didi who is herself on a break by then. Lunch is a healthy paratha with yogurt!

Signing off from classroom at 2 pm, she has some free play and usually likes to pretend play with her dolls in a pretend Peppa pig kitchen serving healthy meals to her stuffed toys. Milk and crackers or a few Bourbon biscuits around 4pm and then some fresh air in our yard for the required vitamin D, a quick tricycle ride giving herself company is what gets her freshened.

A quick shower and change of clothes gets her ready for dinner. A light dinner followed by some family time with lots of chuckles and clowning around gets her ready for a good night sleep. She likes to be read a book before she calls it a day!

But the most important tip she practices - she washes her hands with soap and water multiple times in the day to keep the buggy away!
