December 2018
Kid’s mental wellbeing and sessions on good touch & bad touch Sparsh

It is important to teach kids about their privacy and body space in a safe environment so they can respect their peers and report abuse in an unknown environment. These talks can sometimes become overwhelming for the kids so it is important that they are taught to differentiate between good touch and bad touch in an appropriate manner. RDM organised weekly sessions for the month of December for parents and their children to attend together to learn more about their bodies and human interactions in a safe and guided environment.
Christmas 2018
On Christmas eve, RDM organised a fun fair for kids wherein children could meet and greet Santa Claus. They could indulge in a fun evening of watching a movie, jumping on a trampoline and be enchanted by stories from a professional storyteller.

Lego Workshop
Lego toys have been known to promote dexterity, problem solving and physical development amongst kids. We organised a Lego building workshop where kids were given tasks to be built in groups. The children learnt about teamwork, communication and problem solving skills.
Caring Citizen Workshop
It is important that our kids grow up in a world that is kind, caring and empathetic towards all. It is always the small things that brighten our days. RDM organised a ‘Caring Citizen’ workshop which touched base on how each one of us can brighten the lives of those around us in tiny but important ways. Kids were taught the importance of forming good habits like holding the door for the person behind you, throwing garbage in proper trash cans and many others.
Science is Life Workshop
After our hit Mathemagician workshop, we were overwhelmed with requests to host a similar workshop for science. We thus organised a workshop where kids could learn fun tricks involving scientific methods. Through various activities like how baking soda can erupt from a volcano, kids learnt about science, geography and physics all in one.
Yoga for Youngsters Workshop
India is one of the founding fathers of yoga. Yoga helps to keep one fit, physically and mentally. It is important that kids learn to inculcate this habit from early days. RDM organised a special Yoga for youngsters to teach kids easy yoga asanas the kids can learn and practise daily like pranayam and sun salutations.
Joy of Giving Charity Event
�It is in giving that we receive� - aka the Joy of Giving was organised to instil in children the importance of sharing and helping those less privileged than them. Children were encouraged to bring the books, clothes and toys they owned that they could share kids who would have derived more joy from them. Children were then taken to lesser privileged areas and they exchanged their possessions and played with kids. The museum also provided snacks for all children.
