To celebrate the virtuous bond of love between brother and sister, a special assembly on 'Rakshabandhan' was conducted at the pre-school level. Pre-schoolers spoke a few lines on the significance of the festival and how the eternal bond between a brother and sister is celebrated in India. They presented dances and songs also.
Rakhi Making Activity
‘Raksha’ means protection and ‘Bandhan’, to tie. A sister will wrap a red-and-gold rakhi (sacred thread of love) round her brother’s wrist and say a prayer for his wellbeing, as she makes a mark on his forehead with red powder. Sister may also give him a gift of sweets, such as coconut burfi. In return, her brother will promise to protect her always and will also give her a gift, perhaps of sweets, clothing, or money.
As an extended activity, younglings made beautiful rachis using different articles like silken thread, ribbon, etc. The vibrant, colourful attires and innocent smiles brightened the ambiance and lifted the spirit.
The children were dressed up for this occasion, in ethnic wear. They learnt about the significance of the festival. It enhanced their aesthetic sense and creativity.
This activity helped the children to relate to their own culture and traditions.
A sense of pride was also instilled in them. This activity will keep the little artists engaged in using their creative skills to come up with fantastic, and festive decorations.
They will not only learn the basics of decorations but will also develop interaction skills and have better confidence levels.
