Fun Republic Day Activities for kids
1. Indian Flag
First up, DIY Indian Flag! Begin by printing out or drawing the Indian Flag. Then, let your kids transfer the grains to decorate their flag. It’s simple and a great activity to increase hand-eye coordination.
Things required: 1 cup each of colourful grains – for this you can use 1 cup of Masoor dal for the Saffron colour, Green Moong dal, White Urad dal and Blue coloured rice grain. You can even paint toothpicks in Blue for the chakra! P.S. don’t forget the Fevicol or Glue which is to be used to stick the grains with.
2. India Map
Next up, Indian Map! Print out the outline of the India map, then hand over different materials such as coloured grains or beads, and let the kids design their tri-colour map. Take it up a notch by highlighting the state they belong to in a different colour.
Things required: You will need colourful grains or beads, Fevicol or glue to stick. The colourful grains can be easily available things such as White rice, Pink Masoor dal, Yellow Moong dal, Green dal or coloured rice grains. Be creative and pick as many different coloured things as you want to make the Indian map more vibrant.
3. Get to Know the National Bird of India
Start by getting your hands on the downloadable Peacock sheets (we’ve made it easier for you with the download link below)! Print these out and then design the national bird with dry leaves and other colourful materials. This Republic Day craft idea is super fun and you can even make your own Peacock using materials from home.
Things required: Dry leaves that you can easily find from your garden or an outdoor space at home or around your house, colourful grains, Fevicol or glue stick.
4. National Flower of India
Did you know that the Lotus is the national flower of India? Well, this Republic Day, why not make one at home with the kids! First, print out the outline of the Lotus Flower. Then, use Pink coloured Pistachio shells to decorate the national flower. You could either paint the leaves green or even try using Green grains to decorate it.
Things required: Pistachio shells, paints to color, colored grains for leaves, Fevicol or glue stick.
5. Tri-colour wristband
Another thing to do on Republic Day is to make your own personalised wristbands. This Republic day craft idea is especially fun because you can make these wristbands for yourself and your friends. All you need to do is take coloured paper and cut them into thin strips (1 inch wide). You can also use zig zag craft scissors to shape it differently.
