Rakhi making activity held at Small Wonder School
Mohali, August 3
The thread of love and bond, rakhi, found new dimensions with little hands mastering the art of making them at Small Wonders School
Children from play way students to class III basked in the fun of churning out rakhi threads at the school campus today. The children had a busy schedule making rakhi out of kundan, zardosi, resham (silk), beads, glitters and net. Favorite cartoon characters of children like Tweety, Ben 10, Tom & Jerry, Pooh etc came to life on the tiny rakhis.
Director of the school, Sandeep Singh said that the instead of filling the rakshabandhan celebrations with usual rakhi tying ritual, the school authorities went a step ahead and decided to make children churn out rakhi.
“It was an attempt to make boys realize the importance of sacred thread and responsibility in brings, for girls it was the happiest hour making rakhi for their loving brothers. This was one of many attempts of school to make children learn while they play,” he added.
Sandeep Singh added that school will continue making such an efforts in future that would teach children, entertain them as well as give an edge to their creative minds.
