There are so many things that happen during the festivals and we all love to enjoy the diverse celebrations in our country. From preparations to gatherings, there are a lot of things that have the potential of being a learning experience for young kids and you can gently nudge them towards it.
Of course, this does not take away the enjoyment of the festivities but it will surely improve their knowledge and awareness. Here is what they can learn.
- The social skills of your kids would improve. Through the days of festivities, we meet and interact with many so it is a great time to teach children how they can talk to people and even make new friends along the way.
- Kids learn to be creative with the responsibility of decorations, dressing up and can even prepare their dance performances for the celebrations. This encourage participation and gives them an opportunity to express themselves.
- Each year and with time, the curiosity of children increases and they learn more about the festivities, the actual reasons, why certain rituals are performed etc. This is a good time to encourage learning and share facts with them.
- They learn more about their culture, traditions and this can be a positive experience.
