#blogchatterA2Z - Theme Reveal

April is just around the corner . I am very happy and excited for #blogchatterA2Z challenge which is starting from  1st April 2020 . I have been looking forward to participate in this challenge from last year. Blogchatter helps take people’s blogs to the next level. They have a lot of activities for bloggers all round the year.  I participated in their #myfriendalexa campaign last year and my alexa rank definitely improved. Also I got to know so many other bloggers out there. Blogchatter has  lot of programmes all-round the year to help bloggers grow their blogs. Last year I couldn’t participate in #blogchatterA2Z challenge because I didn’t get to know about it on time. I have heard that it involves a lot of reading, writing, commenting and sharing.  I am looking forward to completing it.

What exactly is #blogchatterA2Z challenge?

In this challenge you have to write 26 posts , one post a day, starting with Alphabet A on Day 1, Alphabet B on day 2 and so on till Alphabet Z on day 26. The participants have to choose one theme and have to write 26 articles about that same theme. You can even get your own E- Book published. Isn’t it exciting?

My theme for this year’s #blogchatterA2Z challenge is “ Activities for kids “

Why did I choose this topic ?

From the time my son is born, I have been trying out different activities with him which help in developing his over all growth , improve his vocabulary,  his fine motor, cognitive and gross motor skills.
I have heard moms discuss and crib that they do not know how to engage their child or keep him busy. With these activities, I want to share with all the moms that it is not important that you have to buy the most fancy toys and games for your kids. You can involve them in lots of activities and play with them with the simplest of things available at home. You just need to spend some time with your kids and you will be surprised at the amount of interesting activities and games you can play with your child.
Everyday I will be sharing one activity, how you can execute it in various ways and the importance of each activity. All the activities can be done at home with minimal resources.  Stay tuned as I share some wonderful activities for babies and kids upto five years of age.

Can’t wait to get this amazing journey started.
