What can more fun then doing some activity which is appropriate to the Independence Day Theme?
Well one of activity we choose for Independence day celebration is making the national flower-Lotus.First I showed couple of lotus flower picture to Khwaish so that she had better idea of what we are making.
Then we decided to do same activity with paper quilling which is totally new concept for me.First drawn a rough picture of lotus on piece of paper….Now time to make petals in pink color(khwaish’s favorite color)…and this time we are using pink chart paper .First cut lot of pink strips(long and width 1cm)and then time to start rolling,bending and pinching the same strip of paper to get lovely petals.You can use pen or pencil to rolling part kids can take elders help, pinching and bending on right spot will give us right shape.
We made nine petals and two leaves….looks great and same time fun for kids and Mummy.
Now we wanted to give leaves to same flower…Again rock and roll of green chart paper.So we got our leaves ready.For leaves only rolling needs to be done ,so khwaish independently created it.
Arranged all the petals and leaves and pasted the same on our rough drawing.
Here comes our lovely lotus flower-Our National Flower.
Planning to take Khwaish for nature visit to one of lake near to my place for Lotus view.
