Splash games in the garden

A scorching heat, a garden, a pipe, a bunch of happy kiddos and here we go, a giant water war has been declared! Sikander (from Tara Boys, invited this afternoon at Tara Tots) will probably remember this joyful moment for a very long time because we, Tara Tots, know how to welcome our guests.

Caution, Wet Paint

A huge blank wall in the paying room was way too tempting for the pencils, pens and paint brushes. there were used to be tested, resuscitated and killed again on it. Who can blame them? We finally understood the hidden message: the Tots want some color! Ok then, be sure that they will have.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are ready for takeoff. Welcome to the Tots universe.

Deepika and Manish playing in the part of the giraffe, while Vanshika wants to be at one with this tree.

A little bird told me that Noorie has found the bug.

Here is a pretty docile elephant which lets Farhan grab his tail.

Manish is taking a walk with his pet. But it is not a leash!

Let's go to the museum

What's on the schedule today? Cultural activity, yippee! So here we go to the museum and nothing is better than a contemporary art museum to stimulate the already overactive creativity of the Boys. As usual, they didn't wait to long to show their curiosity and the questions were coming from all sides.

This huge elephant lying down on the floor is shining with his glass-made skin on which thousands of colorful bindis have been stuck. A picture? Ok, it is also our time to shine!

This picture called "the Persian carpet" is actually plenty of tiny photographs. Nice trick! But the Boys are not so easy to fool!

How serious they are! We can almost hear a pin drop.

What a impressive sculpture! A mountain of metallic items to symbolize a mushroom cloud. What a blowing idea!
