3. See/Read and Cut ‘n’ Paste Pictures- During Festivals. You will find the festivals are the right time to introduce children to the folklore and Indian epics: Ramayana and Mahabharata. Newspapers are full of images of gods/ goddesses and other mythological characters during the festivals. Pick up an empty scrap book, pictures from some newspapers & magazines, scissors and glue. Tell the children the relevance of the festival through the newspaper/magazine pictures. Then encourage them to recreate graffiti with their pictures. It will be exciting for the young ones to recreate the story as well as understand the relevance of rituals/ customs through the stories themselves.
