Yeah I know, they look more like turkeys.
Well, my intention was to teach Big A about the Indian flag, its colors and what it means to be a independent country although the latter might have been a wee bit overboard. Anyways, it did not go as per plan.
Baby A was more than willing to do a flag handprint.
Here is the little one’s tiny tri-color hand
Here is Big A’s.
While talking to her about the flag, we tried to create a tri-color peacock – India’s national bird.
Big A decided that she wanted different colors for her flag and she was not happy with the colors I set out for her! She wanted to make a peacock with her own colors. Finally, when she saw Baby A make a tri color peacock, she HAD to join in.
Here is what it turned out to be. By the way, top color is deep orange. I should get a better orange (actually flag’s color is saffron) soon.
If you end up trying one of those handprint tri-color peacocks with open feathers, please comment and post your link here or on the facebook page.
Thanks for reading and happy sharing.
