For every mom travelling all alone with the little one for long hours is like moving the Himalayas from North to South. I too experienced this when my daughter was 16 months old from Germany to India. Our journey was about 10 hours in flight and the waiting time was around two hours before boarding. The most critical time to handle my daughter was during security check. So I planned some ideas for moms who are travelling all alone with their little one. The first thing is to arrange the bag so that we can handle them easily. For arranging I have done some tricks and to get a clear idea please do click on the image.

I used to watch the pebbles lying near a riverbed in Germany. I used to collect them as a memorandum of the place visited and try to add more beauty to the pebbles collected. And to keep my daughter busy I started to do some craft with them. I heard of dot painting in an FB group and thought to try it out on those pebbles collected from the Neckar river. First I painted Black color to bring out the colors stunning on completion.
How to use the stone art pebble:-
During our walk in Germany along with my little daughter, we came to see this beautiful succulent and we collected those and planted them on a damaged saucer. We placed those painted pebbles on the planted pots to add beauty to the art.
Here is the new venture of my crochet work. Yes, the crochet feel books for the cute little fingers.
Am very much amazed to see my daughter who is fond of books from her two months. When we introduced her books she had the habit of licking and gradually the books got damaged. We tried our hands in the crochet books which is washable and they can learn colors, shapes, and objects gradually. Since it is made of cotton yarn we can introduce these books as early as we can.
