Are you worried about your kids not having the chance to enjoy the patriotic activities usually arranged in schools on Republic Day?
We understand how important 26th January is for India. But our kids consider this as a holiday so that they can have a fun-filled day, starting from participating in games organized by most schools to playing with other kids in the evening. However, this year, it’s not possible to spend the day like all other years due to the lockdown and the rising covid cases.
So, as a parent, it’s your responsibility to arrange some fun-filled activities for your kid so that they can enjoy the day without putting up a gloomy face. In this following article, we will explain a few interesting and fun craft ideas that will not only keep your child engaged but also make the day more special and entertaining.
Making tri-colored flowers for home decoration
If you want to arrange a small event at your home with your kid and extended family, this will be the best activity to engage the little ones. You can ask them to create different styles of flowers using the three colored papers- orange, white, and green. They can make layered flowers or large flowers with different colored petals. Since they need to cut the papers precisely, keep an eye on them so that no they don’t hurt themselves.
Thumb-print Indian flag drawings
If your kid loves to paint, it’s time to let go of the mundane system of doing art and craft. Rather, make your kid paint the Indian flag with thumbprints. Next, use a canvas or white paper wrapped around thick cardboard so that the colors can contrast each other. Also, make sure to use acrylic or poster colors without any water. Finally, tell your child to use their thumb and fill up the blank areas of the flag design.
Making tri-colored frames with decorative flowers
Get some photos of the freedom fighters printed out, or ask your kid to sketch if they know about art. Once done, use thick cardboard and decorate with orange, green, and white paints of paste cut-outs. You can ask your kid to make different patterns like waves, collages, and so on to create different types of frames. Finally, you can use the blue-colored ribbons to create flowers for decorating the frame.
