12 India-Themed Toddler Activities For Independence Day!
A long Independence Day weekend is just round the corner and there's a lot you can do with your toddler to share your love and pride for India. As always, we like to undertake some Montessori-inspired activities which are both fun and a great way to introduce new concepts.
Take a look at our shelf. I have used some flags and posters to create the India-theme:
The first tray was an introduction to our tri-color national flag, along with some geographical study. I created a little Asia continent printable with India on it. We also studied the phonic sound “I" of India.
We then moved on to our favorite scooping / pouring work using rice and two other lentils. This gelled with the tri-color of the Flag :)
Then we studied about famous freedom fighters of India along with some special national attributes.
We also had fun studying the national - state animals of India!
Next up, we matched some famous spices of India to their printable cards!
We also used music instrument cards and art appreciation cards as pre-reading cards:
Next, we had a fun time matching artistic elephants! Such a great visual discrimination activity.
We also did a pre-writing activity by making black stripes on a Tiger.
And finally we did some FUN fine motor activity using DIY Flags and Tri-color clay :)
