Children’s day is around the corner and it brings back so many memories from my school days. I remember how teachers used to perform on stage and behave like kids. We used to have a fun party at school and took part in various fun activities. But as far as I remember all this fun was limited till school hours. Now being a parent, I feel we should make it special for our children. They should have fun time with their parents too. Once in a while we should become like our kids and have a gala time with them. This would help in parents-kids bonding too. Here are a few things you can plan this children’s day
For a day, become kids and let your kids behave like parents. Let them guide you through the day. You’ll see how disciplinarian kids can become.
Baking with the kids is so much fun. Prepare whatever your children prefer- cake, cupcakes or muffins and use their favourite flavour.
Have a Kids Disco Party
Put on some funky numbers and dance with your kids. teach them some of your favourite moves.
Plan a surprise picnic in your backyard
Kids love surprises and surprise picnics can be a great way to be together on Children’s Day.
Share you childhood pictures and memories
Show them your childhood pictures and share your favourite memories with them. Kids love listening to stories and if these are real and fun stories of their parents, they would love them.
Give them a long bubble bath
Kids love being in water. Prepare to give them a fun bath and let them take their own time. Let this evolve into a water fight and join them in it.
Donate their old toys and clothes
This children’s day bring joy to those children who do not have lesser resources than you. make your children donate their old toys and clothes. This would bring a sense of sharing and understanding of value of things they possess.
Give them surprise gifts
Give them some surprise gifts like books, toys or clothes. Hide these gifts in the house and let them hunt.
Give them your undisputed time and attention
Our kids deserve that. When you spend time with them, make sure you give them your full attention. They would love it.
Gift them chocolates and sweets
“Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye”. This special day calls for some indulgence in chocolates.
