Day1 – Kid’s Carnival

Summer is a season that radiates warmth, optimism, and positive energy. It denotes a calm and peaceful ambiance with a clear blue sky. The days are radiant, lovely, and peaceful with a golden sun. OH!! What a warm imagination. I fantasize about my summer as above but living in a tropical country sun is our neighbor and humidity is our companion. Wish I could say we are sun-kissed but we are all sunburnt.

Added to the atrocities of summer our naughty kids are all free at home enjoying their holidays. No school, no homework, and only play, seem to be a bit hectic for parents to keep the kids occupied. These mischievous minds are like an ever-hungry ogre, we must feed their minds with exciting activities which are finished in a jiffy, and they ask for more fun and excitement. While the parents were all exhausted, Perficient #Chennai came up with the Kids’ Summer Camp plan.

The moment I received the mail, I enrolled my Kids. “2 Days of Kids Summer Camp” appeared to be “2 Days of Spa and rejuvenation therapy for Mothers” I squished my eyes to take a second look and it said, “2 Days of Kids Summer Camp”. Day 1 was the Kids Carnival and Day 2 was the Kids Summer Camp. Hurrah, I was more excited than my kids. Who doesn’t like to be at a carnival? My kids were then just an excuse to attend the carnival.

On the day of the Kids Carnival, I was up and ready with my kids and was at the office much ahead of usual with loaded enthusiasm. We were all so dazed to be welcomed by the puppets. OH! Wow, it’s a puppet show. We have never had an opportunity to witness one. We were totally awestruck. While the parents were all busy with work, the kids had a puppet-making workshop. The little fingers made magic. Every puppet was so unique and a masterpiece.

After lunch, the kids were all taken to the cafeteria where a wonderful play area was set up. Bouncy Castle!! Trampoline !! shouted the kids in excitement and started jumping up and down on them. My kids ran to the “TIC TAC TOE” and “Snow Bowling” and started putting their hands to work. At the other corner were all the food counters, tickling all our senses. Popping sound of the popcorn, freezing cold ice creams, the aroma of the French fries, glossy and silky flowing chocolate fountain. Heart and tummy full we went back home and hit the bed early, to prepare for day 2.

Day 2 – Kid’s Summer Camp

The Kids’ summer camp began with traditional games around the world followed by some nice milkshakes for refreshments. Our budding artist’s skills bloomed into beautiful paper flowers. They were all engrossed in their activity that we had to literally drag them for lunch. Pizzas, pasta, cheese balls oh yum, a wholesome feast for the kids to enjoy. The kids enjoyed their lunch and surprised the parents with empty plates. Parents were all wondering if the kids have got an extra tummy today.

Now back to the activity area, “Movie Time” The kids were enjoying some folktale and they were so into it. During the Q&A session, kids were so enthusiastic to answer and were all jumping out of their chairs for their turn. After an ice cream break, there was a Fireless cooking activity. The tiny little hands made a traditional India delicacy “Bhel Puri” and served to the parents. Can anything taste better than this? Those extra spoons of love and affection from our Kids are the secret ingredients. Kids proudly served their parents while parents were all so overwhelmed with emotions.

Now we are almost at the end of the Kids Summer Camp. Our Leadership team distributed some goodies to the kids which super excited them and were all so eagerly waiting to unwrap. Kids did not want to go back home, and it was so difficult to console them saying that the winter camp is around the corner and they can visit the office soon. Kids are now so eager to come to the office as they think there is a carnival every day. There may not be a carnival at the office every day but Perficient family is so warm and ever cheerful that our feel is never less than being in a carnival. Ok back to my desk. Catch up soon in my next blog.
