For kids, Children’s Day brings the excitement of celebrations, treats, and gifts. For adults, this day brings back childhood memories when they used to have a gala time with other kids of their age. Celebrated every year on 14th November as a tribute to India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, this day makes the little munchkins feel special.
As a parent, your children always remain that cute bundle of joy for you, no matter how old they grow. Whether they are 13 or 30, you should never stop showering unconditional love and affection over them on this special day. That’s why we present here some fun and creative ways to celebrate Children’s Day and make it super amazing for your adolescent, teen or adult kids.
Growing Age Kids (4 to 12 years)
The kids in this age group have crossed the toddler phase and they are experiencing new revelations in life. This is the best growing age group for kids when their interests, abilities, and personalities start to develop. Parents need to spend as much time as possible with their kids at this age. On Children’s Day, you can take them to a fun picnic, amusement park, museum or zoo. Get involved in activities that your kids enjoy the most like painting, drawing or dancing. Age-appropriate books as a Children’s Day gift can help them learn new skills and support their overall development.
Teenagers (13 to 19 years)
It is one of the most complex age groups when kids go through several emotional, physical, and hormonal changes. Their perspective on certain things changes during this period. For Children’s Day celebrations, you can take your teenage kids for inspirational movies that help boost their confidence. Something that they can use during that age. You can take them camping or hiking where they can spend some quality time amidst nature. Or if there is any community event happening nearby on Children’s Day, you can attend it with your teenage kid. Where they can learn the importance to embrace the concept of community. It will have a deep impact on their brain and heart at such a sensitive age.
Grown Ups (20 to 30 years)
A lot happens in the life of a person during this age. For example, the transformation from teenager to adult. Moving out of the house in pursuit of education or job. Getting a job. Living on your own. Finding a life partner. This is the age when a person actually starts to understand the importance of having a family. What it feels like having parents by their side. And being away from home busy amidst job and other commitments, they crave a lot for their parent’s love and affection. So if you have children in this age group, time is the best gift that you can give them on Children’s Day. Take them for a trip where you can spend some quality time together. Spend an entire day with them doing things you always wanted to do. Go through old family pictures and take a dip in nostalgia. Try cooking or baking Children’s Day cake together. Talk to them about things happening in their life. Ask them about future plans. Doing all these things will allow you to connect with them and strengthen your relationship.
Adult Kids (Above 30)
Your kids may probably have kids of their own at this age. But that shouldn’t stop you from nurturing and showering them with unconditional love and care on Children’s Day. All three generations can be part of the Children’s Day celebration. Along with your kids and their kids, you can go for a fun picnic or have a little party at home. You can try and play fun games together. You can give gifts to your kids and grandkids. It will not only help them learn about this special day but also let them learn about the importance of family and relationships.
We hope these ideas help you celebrate Children’s Day with your kids in a fun manner and make it memorable for all of you.
