=================================================================

Once, upon a time there was a very rich family. They were rich, but did not  boast about it to others. The family lived very happily.

One day, they went to  party at a club which was named “Golden Statue.” They thought it was just the name of the club. But they were wrong. When the  family went inside, they saw hundreds of statues, all in golden colour. The  family members thought it was just for decoration. When they were dancing  at the club, all of a sudden they all turned into statues. This was an enormous  moment for the baby girl of the family, who was named Akshi.

After some time, a golden fairy appeared and touched every one’s head. She
assumed that everyone in the family was aware of the club being a magical one, except for Akshi! She was so surprised that she quickly saved Akshi from staying  a statue. When Akshi turned back to herself from being a statue, she asked the fairy,” Who are you and what happened to my family?”

 

The fairy replied, “I am the Golden Fairy.” The fairy then told the whole story of  what happened and how that club was a magical one that turned its guests into golden statues. Akshi exclaimed,”Oh, Oh! I am so sorry that I thought  wrong about you and thank you for helping me! But you forgot something,  didn’t you see?”

 

Akshi then told the Golden Fairy that she did not remember  the way home and also didn’t know how to cook!

“Oh, that shall not be a problem” said the fairy. “I will cast a magic on you and you will know everything,” the fairy said. Just when Akshi was leaving for  home  she turned towards the fairy and said,”Please turn the good people alive again.”

 

Akshi returned home and after some time the Golden Fairy appeared in front of her. Akshi asked, “What took you so long?”

The fairy said,”When I was coming, my other fairy friends said that they  wanted to meet you because I told them everything about you.”

Akshi then met the other fairies and spent a lot of time. After the other fairies
left, Akshi looked at the Golden Fairy and said, “Let us give my family another
chance.”

The Golden Fairy was very happy to hear this from the little girl and with the
help of her magic turned the family members real again.

This showed that Akshi had an enormous heart as she was ready to forgive  people who did not treat her with love.

Finally they were able to get Toffy out of the well. Toffy was very thankful and  promised that she would give her a pack of chocolates next time. The two of them went to play and lived happily ever after.

One bright sunny day , the sparrows were resting on the tree and the wild cat was also relaxing and sleeping nearby. One wolf was slowly approaching the cat and the cat was not at all aware of the same. The sparrows saw the scary wolf and all the sparrows attacked and pecked at the wolf. The wolf ran backed to the jungle. The wild cat was really happy and thanked the sparrows.

 

A few days passed by and the sparrows were eating near the tree as they were busy eating, one black kite was coming towards them. The cat saw the black kite and scared the black kite. The sparrow thanked the wild cat after that they became good friends and lived happily.

Suzy and the Grey Kite

Sara's Activities Tangram STEM for kidsOnce upon a time there lived a girl called Suzy. She was going to the Kite  festival riding on her beautiful unicorn. As they reached the kite festival, Suzy saw a gloomy grey kite sitting alone.

Nobody took him .Everybody only bought colourful kites. The grey kite was  locked in a glass and it was sobbing. Suzy felt sad for the grey kite and quickly  took the kite from the shopkeeper.

 

The kite was relieved to come out of the glass and thanked the girl for taking him. Suzy sat on the unicorn and they went on top of the green mountain to fly the grey kite high up in the blue sky. The grey kite felt awkward in the sky  among all the bright ones. He thought, “If I fall all the other kites will laugh at  me.”

But Suzy and the kite did not give up. Soon he began to enjoy the fresh air and began to rise high, high, so high. He started loving it. Seeing him dance so high all the other colored kites learnt a lesson that they should not have made fun of him. They realized that dark or colorful doesn’t matter. It is important to be confident and happy with ourselves.

Now the grey kite lives happily ever after in his new home…

Hello little ones.  Sharing this extremely creative story by a little author, 7 year old Lavishka Jain from Little Readers Nook Gurgaon. What is this Tangram story about? Well, Tangrams!

================================================================

It was a sunny hot day, and there lived a girl named Sia, with bright eyes, one  ponytail, baby pink lips and a beautiful pink frock. She was five years old and  lived in a comfortable apartment with her mother and father.

“Aah! It’s so hot,”Sia exclaimed as she was sitting in her balcony fanning  herself. In the meantime her mother got some watermelons to eat. Sia loves  watermelons especially on such a hot day.

 

After eating it, Sia went inside. She asked her mother, who was working in the  kitchen, “Mummy, what should I do?” Her mother suggested, “Why don’t you  go out and play in the sun?” “No it’s too hot,”Sia refused. “Ok, then read a book,” Mamma advised. “No it’s too boring”, Sia replied.

Sia was being too  picky. She went inside her room with a sigh. She jumped in her bed and said to  herself, “What can I do, Mamma is also busy with her kitchen work?”

 

Sia’s mother was watching her, and she noticed that she is looking very bored  and gloomy. Mom got an idea and she sat on a dining table and started making  shapes with Rajma beans.

 

Sia came out of her room to drink water, when she noticed her mother playing  and making different objects from those shapes. Sia got curious and sat there  only looking at her Mamma.

Mamma suggested, “Why don’t you make your own shapes by cutting  colourful paper and after dinner we can make our stories from it”. Sia liked the  idea and immediately rushed to her room to make her game. While she was  cutting the shapes; mom told her that this game is called Tangram and it’s a very fun game.

embarrassed.

 

When she got home her mother was not angry, she said you tried your best. It’s ok and then Chicki realised that she needed a little practice, so she
practiced and practiced and practiced until she was perfect.

 

The next time when her mother took her to the concert, Chicki won the first prize for singing. When they asked her how she got so good at singing, Chicki said she worked very hard. She said she did that not to win a prize, but just to make her mother very happy and proud.

down in and around their home. Their sandy neighborhood was becoming  crowded and noisy. So, Appa pyramid decided to shift to another place. He  always wanted to experience the cold. So, the Appa pyramid said bye to his baby and off he went to Antarctica! He was welcomed by the friendly penguins, the sea lions and the polar bears. They looked at him in wonder!

 

They had never seen a pyramid before. Soon, the Appa pyramid was  everybody’s favourite. The penguins used the pyramid as their sliding slope.  The sea lions went down the sides of the pyramid and splash, they fell into the ice cold waters.

 

But the Appa pyramid soon began to shiver and freeze as he was not used to  the cold weather and he wanted to leave. But the penguins pleaded with him  to stay back and made him a big warm jacket out of round stones. The Appa  pyramid was very happy and he stayed on there.

Suddenly, the baby pyramid woke up with a start. She ran to Appa pyramid with  her eyes full of tears and said, “Appa, would you be leaving us to go to  Antarctica to live with the penguins and the polar bears?”

 

Appa laughed and said, “Oh, I would I never leave you ever, little one! But let’s  all go together to Antarctica on a holiday next summers.”

“Thank God it was just a dream!” cried the baby pyramid.

Can you think of a story on the flower tangrams too?


A Happy Flower

One fine morning a beautiful flower bloomed in the garden. As soon as she  opened her eyes she saw many beautiful things around her like tall mountains,  green trees, bright yellow sun and many other colourful things. She saw the  bright sun smiling at her. She too happily smiled at him.

A girl came to the  garden and noticed the beautiful flower. She loved it very  much and wanted to take it home. So she plucked the flower and took it home. She offered it god after reaching home.

At the end of the day, the flower dried up.

Moral of the story :
The flower gave happiness to everyone around her till she was fresh. This shows we should always keep smiling in any situation whether it is good or bad just like the happy flower.

Once upon a time, there lived a crab called Crabby. He was not happy because he had no friends. The other fishes went to school, but Crabby did not go as he didn’t have any friends.

In the same ocean, there lived an octopus named Octo. Just like Crabby, Octo also didn’t have any friends and didn’t go to school. Octo often felt sad as he had no friends.

One day, when Crabby was wandering in the ocean, a large rock fell on him when he was not looking. Crabby got stuck under that rock and cried loudly for help. Octo was swimming nearby and he heard Crabby’s voice. He immediately turned to Crabby. He told Crabby “Don’t worry, I will save you from this giant rock. I have eight hands – I can easily lift this rock using them”.

Octo bravely pushed the rock aside using his strong hands. Crabby came out from under the rock. He said to Octo, “I am really grateful to you for saving me. What is your name?”

“Hi- my name is Octo. What is your name?”
“I am Crabby. Can we be friends?”
Octo replied “Yes of course! I am so happy to meet you, my friend Crabby!”
Octo then told Crabby “I didn’t have any friends till now, and that is why I didn’t go to school.”
Crabby replied “You are my first friend! From tomorrow onwards, we both will go to school together.”
After that day Crabby and Octo went together to school. At the school, they met many fishes, turtles, octopuses and crabs. They both made many new friends. They were both happy as they were not lonely anymore.

Crabby told Octo, “Even though we have many friends now, you will always be my best friend.”
Octo said, “Thank you Crabby! But please don’t get stuck under a rock ever again!”

Both Octo and Crabby laughed heartily on this, hugged each other and
remained best friends forever.

One day, a man came walking to the jungle to hunt. The rabbit saw him and he went to tell the fox. The fox said “Don’t worry, we will call the lion and we’ll manage”. 

 

The fox told the lion about it and the lion went to the man and said “Hi man, how are you? You are the first man to reach this jungle – Why are you here?”.

 

The man replied, “I am here to build a house and hunt animals, eat them and take a nap”.

 

Then the fox said “Oh! very nice. We also have a river in this jungle. You can take a boat and also eat fish there.” 

 

The man said “Good idea, I will go to sleep – I have a lot of work.” Then, when the man was sleeping, the fox took his gun away and the rabbit went to call the lion. The lion went to pounce on the man and the man ran away from the jungle. This is how the three friends saved the jungle.

The clever fox and the dumb lion on the mountain

Once upon a time there was a clever fox living on the mountains inside a cave. One day an old and weak lion was searching for food but could not find any and was very hungry.

 

By chance one afternoon that lion landed inside the fox’s cave while he was roaming in search of food.
After a few hours when the fox returned, he saw lion’s footprints outside the cave. The clever fox shouted, “Cave, oh my cave, should I come inside?”

The dumb lion thought of answering on behalf of the cave and said, “Come, oh my dear friend come inside.” The clever fox ran away saving his life from that old, weak and hungry dumb lion who was ready to kill him for food.

 

Moral – In difficult times one should be brave and work with brains and not be dumb.

———————————————————————————————–
Once upon a time, there lived a pretty little kite named Bindi. She was full of colours. Her face was blue, yellow and green and she had a purple, pink, grey and yellow tail. Although she was the most beautiful kite, she was very stubborn. She would not listen to anyone’s advice. Her elders often told her not to fly very high.

Tangram Activities for kids with Sara Bookosmia

One windy morning, Bindi flew away. She was excited and happy, she was finally flying. As she flew upwards, she was curious to know what was beyond the clouds, where the birds were going, which is the tallest tree and so on. So she flew higher and higher and higher.

Uh-oh, she got stuck on the tallest tree. She sobbed, “I want to go home. Some one get me down!”

A bird who was sitting on the tree heard her cries and flew down. The bird quickly untangled Bindi and set her free. She thanked the bird and flew away.

Hence Bindi learnt a lesson that we should listen to elder’s advice or else we will land in trouble.

There was another way- a bridge for which he had to walk a long long way but he decided to take the bridge and not go for the other easy option.

Moral of the story- Don’t take the easy way of going out of your house right now because of the virus and do it the tough way of staying back and doing  things inside your house.

He remembered meeting a person who hadn’t found his special talent yet. So the emperor thought that this person might have a talent for making tiles.This will be a wonderful opportunity to explore the young man’s hidden talent. He called all the experts and the young man to bring the tiles design.

The young man agreed happily. After a while he finished it. They were beautiful. They were of mystifying colour. He trod over the soft grass to the emperor’s castle.

But he had to cross a river to reach there. He saw a nice boat waiting but without an oar. He took a tile and used it to row the boat. After a while, the tiles became too heavy for him and it sunk after dropping from his hand. The man dove in the water to get them. Once he got them back, he remembered that he had a handkerchief in his pocket. With his magical hands he dried the tiles and made them extra shiny.

After that he took them to the emperor, bowed and said ” presenting the tiles”. The emperor took it and he stared in amazement to the glow and shine of the tiles. The emperor had finally helped the young man in finding his hidden talent.
