How to celebrate Republic Day with kids?

Published on January 23, 2017


India will celebrate her 68th Republic Day on 26th of January 2017. Several national events and ceremonies are held around this time of the year and hence it is a perfect time to teach our kids about our country and instill a sense of patriotism in them.

Here are some interesting things to do on Republic Day with kids.

Involve young citizens

When organizing Republic Day event, involve maximum number of young children because it is important that our future citizens develop patriotism and love for the country.

Flag hoisting

Flag hoisting is the core event on Republic Day. You can invite a senior citizen to do the honors as they’d have some good information exchange with young kids. This is a good opportunity to introduce National Flag colors to the children.

Singing of the National Anthem

This is another important custom on Republic Day. Singing National Anthem itself brings a feeling of pride to the citizens. You can call up children a day or two ahead to practice the anthem and have them sing in chorus.

Organize cultural program

Cultural programs are an intrinsic part of celebrations in our country. You can organize a patriotic singing and dancing competition and let kids and adults participate.

Watch the parade

Delhi Republic Day parade is the largest and grand parade that marks the Republic Day celebrations in India. The soldiers all dressed in their official attires with accessories showcase their skills to pay a tribute to the Nation. So don’t miss out watching the live telecast of the parade with your child on TV or online.

Talk to your kids about our national heroes

There are so many inspiring stories about national heroes that talks about their bravery and struggles towards gaining independence of India. You can look at organising a story telling session for kids or a fancy dress competition where all kids dress up as National Heroes.

Make and take

Any celebration is incomplete if you don’t carry some memories out of it. Plan and organise some art and craft activities for kids such as making tri-colour flags, drawing national symbols etc. Also add some tri-colour snacks to excite children.
