Children's day is around the corner, and it's imperative to make it memorable for your kiddywinks in every possible way. Have you planned it yet? If not, Bingo! We have curated a list of interesting ideas that will make your kids cherish this day for a very long time.

"Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them." — James A. Baldwin

Think back to the last time your parents dressed you up for a fancy dress contest. Whether you were going to be a butterfly, princess, freedom fighter, or Chacha Nehru, they made sure you looked like the most charming individual on this planet.

Time flies, and the situation is reversed. Now that you are a parent, it is your responsibility to make sure this Children’Day memorable for your naughty little bairns!

There are seven wonders of the world; children's eyes are filled with seven million more. They are the buds of your family garden, and it is your allegiance to nurture them carefully and lovingly. 

Yes, your child will be participating in Children's Day celebrations in school, but that should be an end to their enjoyment. Dressing up in vibrant colours, candies, and cakes from their teachers shouldn't put a stop to the happy list. Make it a day filled to the brim with delight. 

Be a part of this special day rather than listening to your children's stories about how it went. Bring fun to the home by celebrating this Children's Day with entirely different vibes.

Children have a wealth of emotions and talent that await acceptance. Give children the opportunity to uncover the secrets this Children's Day. Allow your kids to grow in self-discovery with you.

Taking your kids on a picnic in an old-school way may make this day even more meaningful. You don't have to do a lot to bring a smile to your kid's face. Little things such as cheerful banter, juices, candies, and sandwiches are enough to add to their happiness. Children's day picnic sessions are all about giving time to your children, which has been pending for a long time. As a parent, organise a quick picnic at a picturesque place or even a park with an intriguing theme. You can even go camping and build some memories while having fun with them. 

Baking Fun with Your Children

Sometimes, the best thing you can do is to make them part of the whole preparation session. Your little ones love to cook with you and ask tons of questions throughout the process. Allow them to join you in the kitchen, and you can even ask them to help you prepare the dough, add some flavour, and add icing. Let them taste the cookies as they are the ones who have prepared it all (from their perspective). Allow kids to be creative by adding sprinkles and other edible decorations while making the cookies. When you're finished baking, have a little celebration and eat some delicious cookies.

Nostalgic Moments With Grandparents

We can all agree that kids enjoy spending time with their grandparents. So make this Children's Day a time for your kids to get together. Let the grandchildren experience their special relationship with their grandparents. Be the host for this gathering and make the required arrangements. Allow your kids to become engrossed in the tales their grandparents. They will hear from their grandparents about how they observed Children's Day celebrations and how things have changed. This will surely turn out to be a bonding session along with some lifelong learnings. 

Leave Funny and Affectionate Notes

Little ones are hungry for love, and all they need is affection. They might not fall for your words, but your actions matter a lot. Try leaving witty and affectionate notes from them. Place these notes in their play area, just behind their pillow, under their plate, on a water bottle, in books, and on the wall. Allow them to discover these little notes throughout the day so they can feel loved and special all day long. Additionally, you can count on leaving Children's Day quotes to encourage them. 

Handmade Gifts and Cards

"The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence." — Denis Waitley

Kids' love towards arts and crafts is unexplainable. Greetings prepared from cardboard, with glitters and cartoons spark intrigue and imagination. However, when they receive something similar from parents, they just roam around with happiness for the rest of the week. They will erupt with joy at the sight of a moving cartoon, a spaceship bearing their name, or a Barbie mansion. Although it won't require much work, the little ones will appreciate your gesture. A little creativity and thinking outside the box will be sufficient to produce a masterpiece and add to the Children's Day celebrations. Begin with the things that your child really admires. Once they receive a homemade gift card or craft, they will feel special and motivated to create something similar. Create a Children's Day drawing and add your personal touch to the cards and gifts.

Immerse Yourselves in the Dancing World

Without any doubt, as a parent, you love your children the most, but the affection and pampering they get from their grandparents are irreplaceable. If your kid misses that, try visiting an old age home or an adoption home this Children's Day. If you decide to visit an old age home, your child will feel welcoming and will become more compassionate towards older people. Additionally, you can take your children to adoption homes and make them meet with the kids living there. Consider bringing them gifts to help make their Children's Day memorable. Your youngster will learn from it and develop a sense of worth for things. Given the prevalence of adoption homes around the nation, it is the best way to celebrate Children's Day in India.
