We are soon going to celebrate the Independence Day of our glorious nation. Instead of just using it as a holiday, this year, let’s try out something different. So we are going to show you a few craft pieces that we can use to pay tribute to this great nation and teach our kids to be proud of our country and its culture.
Here are two easy craft ideas that the kids can try out:
1. Peacock (Our national bird)
What You Need
A large paper plate
A small paper plate
4 sheets of green A3 paper
Scraps of yellow and white paper
Paint the backs of both plates blue.
While the plates are drying make your feathers by folding the pile of green paper in half along the short edge. Cut out a large feather shape and trim around the edges. When you separate out the pages you will have 8 feathers.
Fold the blue paper in half, then in half again, then in half for a third time, and cut out an eye shape. Glue the blue eyes to the top of the feathers.
Repeat with the black paper, but cut a smaller eye shape. Glue these to the centre of the blue eyes.
Glue the two plates together along the rim.
Glue the feathers to the back of the large plate in a fan shape.
Finally, draw two eyes on white paper, cut them out and glue them to the small plate. Finish off by adding a triangle of yellow paper for the beak.
2. Our national flag
What You Need
6 Icecream sticks
Orange, green, white paint
Blue marker pen
Glue / two way stickers
Paint the ice cream sticks in the colours of the national flag, 2 sticks per colour
Attach them to a longer icecream stick using 2 way stickers.
Draw a chakra using Blue markers.
