Rishab got Super Magnetic Space putty as one of the Christmas gift. Same day Rishi visited him and they both were eager to open it and play with it.
Here is a review of Magnetic putty. You can combine other magnetic materials and have hours of fun with it.
We had a snow blizzard this weekend and Rishab was all thrilled to play in the snow.
We built a large snowman. When life sends a blizzard, build a snowman.
Its time Rishab learn more coding and nothing better than Hour of code website promoted by Obama. Since Rishab already knew Scratch programming to some extent and loved Minecraft, he was excited to learn Blockly where he could create his own minecraft.
Within a few minutes he knew what to do and ended up figuring out what code to write on his own.

To make something this #Halloween, we dressed our robot Dash as a spider. It turned out to be a bit creepy and very entertaining.
This weekend we worked on another fun project. Melting crayons and making an art of it. Rishab loved it. Although its a lot more messier than other forms of art, kids thoroughly enjoy melting their crayons.

BatMan has been Rishab’s favorite character from last 2-3 years. He has been drawing batman logos once in a while. For this painting we first Googled a good batman logo, chose the colors and a created an outline with pencil.

Rishab completed most of the painting. I refined the edges of the painting. We completed this painting in just 2 days(a weekend).
This was our second painting with signature #KattimaniBoyz #KB
Checkout our other famous (well at least our) blue flowers painting.
Rishab has been looking forward to open his new acrylic painting set and gazebo birdhouse. Ended up painting it today.
If you are thinking of shooting a video like this, here are some tips
- Video was shot with a DSLR camera on a tripod, you can record the video with your phone or handycam too. Rishab’s previous painting video was entirely shot on my cell phone.
- A video editing software such as Pinnacle studio to trim the video clips, fast forward, overlay text & some motion effects between pictures.
- Lots of patience to take multiple shots
Don’t forget to make it a fun process for you & your kid so that it feels effortless.
No matter how late or busy we are, there is always some time for playing with snow.
