I have always been a fan of children’s section in IKEA, actually most of Meshari’s furniture and toys are from there. I think they are child friendly and educational. IKEA Kuwait is now participating in their world wide campaign that allows children in countries of poverty get the education they need.

Ikea foundation is supporting children in developing countries with the annual Soft Toy for Education campaign by funding education programs run by Save the Children and UNICEF.

From November 9th 2014 until January 3ed 2015, for every IKEA soft toy, the IKEA Foundation will donate one euro to education programs around the world supported by UNICEF and Save the Children. Also applies to online purchases.

The Soft Toys for Education campaign aims to provide quality education to children living in poverty in developing countries. Since the campaign started in 2003, education from annual IKEA Soft Toy campaign have totalled 67 million euros, helping more than 11 million children in 46 countries to enjoy their right to quality education.

A Day At Kidzania

IMG_2121

Ever since Kidzania opened at The Avenues I’ve been wanting to take Mishari there but it was always crowded. When Halloween came Kidzania announced their Halloween theme and invited us to check it out , I was excited and could not wait to take Misho.

Too bad they canceled the theme because of cultural and religious reasons as they said but we got in anyways.

Even though I heard so much about the place and saw lots of pictures I was still very impressed when I saw the place and wished I was a kid again so I could play there.

Mishari is only two years old so he could not participate in all the activities yet there was a lot that he could do and enjoy. we first took the tour bus to discover the place. Then we went to the construction site, where he was dressed like a builder and started building a wall with the help of the staff. Adults are not allowed inside the site so I stepped out and watched. I was really happy to see how engaged he was , he even forgot that I was there.When he was done with playing there he got a paid for his work! that was really cute.

Then we went to the Art Club were he started painting like Picasso. I loved sharing that moment with him.

There are also a toddlers only area upstairs were Misho really enjoyed his time moving around and discovering the place freely. I have to say that Kidzania have the most friendly staff of people that I have ever met. they’re all really good with kids.

There was a lot of fun things to do there I think kids could spend a whole day there without being board. Even I as an adult enjoyed my time there, its fun and educational in so many different ways for kids.

The only thing that I thought was unthought of was the adult fee. Its a bit much to pay that amount of money to enter the place with your kid. after all you are only there to supervise.

Overall its a must visit for parents and kids.

This year Zain decided to sell the costumes of the play in an auction and donate the money to charity…

 

Where do I start? the fascinating decoration and effects, the very talented yuong actors we have in Kuwait, the sophisticated dialogue , plot and theme of the play which is written by the brilliant Hiba Hamada !

Training Gate International

We were informed about Training Gate International and we thought to help them spread the word:

“Training Gate International (TGI) is a non-profit organization established in July, 2009, as the first and the only one of its kind in Kuwait to operate as a specialized human resources development organization focusing, in collaboration with international partners, on training and skills development for people with disabilities, their families, advocates, teachers, supervisors, co-workers, and related professional service providers in both the public and private sectors. TGI services also include activities in this field such as organizing exhibitions, conferences, and training and entertainment camps.”

A great initiative to help those in need. Please check their website for the upcoming training.
