As an adult/parent, you may want to celebrate Children’s Day in a special way for the kids in your home, right? While managing your busy schedule, planning something unique for them can be challenging. But don't worry. We are here to help! We bring you a list of fun activities you can host for your kids as part of the Children's Day Celebration. But first, let us know about the significance of Children's Day.

Importance of Children's Day

In India, Children's Day is celebrated on 14th November. It is also the birth anniversary of the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. He was fond of children and believed that they must be given utmost love and care as they would determine the future of India and become the leaders of tomorrow. 

The day also stresses the importance of raising awareness among the children to know about their rights. Mr. Nehru believed that every child has the right to education and that it is necessary for living a good life. So, he set up schools and colleges all over India. To honour his birthday, educational institutions hold cultural programs. 

Ways to Celebrate Children’s Day

If you want to organise a party at home, you can decide on a unique theme and plan fun Children’s Day games and activities around that theme. Remember, the most important thing is for your child to be loved. Apart from home parties, here are other ways to celebrate Children's Day. 

  • Watch a movie together

There are few things that kids enjoy more than watching a movie. So, this Children's Day, you can organise a movie night for kids and play their favourite movie. To make the night even more special, you can invite other kids in the locality or your child's friends over and enjoy the movie with tubs of popcorn and other goodies.

  • Bake a Children's Day special cake

Sometimes, making your child feel part of the preparation can be fun and exciting for them as the main event itself. So, if you plan to bake a cake, you can get your children to knead the dough or let them choose the decorations and toppings. This is one of the best Children’s Day celebration ideas

If you make cookies, you can give them cookie cutters and let them shape the dough as they like. You can also take their help with putting the icing on the cupcakes. This will help them learn how to be organised and patient. 

Once you are done with all the preparation, sit with them and have a small family party where you enjoy the goodies with them. 

  • Pizza Party

Another children's day celebration idea that never fails is a pizza party. Kids love pizza. This children's day, you can have a family gathering, invite all the kids in the family, and have a fun time bonding over a pizza. It will also be an excellent chance for the children to meet their cousins and long-distance siblings. Make sure you also plan some games for the kids to make the night special.

  • Plan a surprise trip

If your child loves to be outdoors, you can plan a surprise trip for them. Remember, it is hard for children to be quiet and in the same place for long. It is best advised to choose a place where they can have fun, get new experiences, feel comfortable, and express themselves freely. 

You can make the trip even better and more memorable for your kid by booking your stay at a Club Mahindra resort. These resorts are premium in every sense of the word. During your stay at the resort, you and your children can enjoy many signature experiences together and individually, such as cooking with the chef, themed nights, towel origami classes, puppet-making workshop, etc.

  • Host a Storytelling Session

Invite children to a storytelling event where they can listen to tales from different cultures. You can enhance the experience with puppet shows or have children create their own stories.

  • Organize a Sports Day

A mini-Olympics or sports day with different athletic activities can promote physical fitness and healthy competition. Include a mix of individual and team sports.

  • Pajama Party

Have a daytime pajama party with storytelling, pillow fights, and board games. This provides a comfortable and playful environment for children to just be kids.

As the festivities wind down, it's evident that the heart of Children's Day lies in the joy and laughter of the young ones. The range of Children's Day activity ideas we've explored can serve as a springboard for crafting an unforgettable celebration. From movie marathons to outdoor adventures, each activity has been carefully designed to foster creativity, curiosity, and camaraderie among children. 

These activities for Children's Day not only entertain but also educate and inspire, providing a platform for children to express themselves, learn new skills, and create precious memories. Inculcating such vibrant experiences on Children's Day ensures that the essence of childhood - wonder, adventure, and learning - is celebrated and cherished, making every moment count for the stars of the day, the children.Besides, the resort also organises many special events for the children, like a Magic show, theme party nights, etc.
