Ten ways you can surprise your child this children’s day
If you are not “Benjamin Button” from the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” then, of course, you have experienced childhood before anything else! And we are sure you remember your Children’s day as a child. Wasn’t that the best time ever? Sure it was. The trend remains the same. Even today, children want this day to be unique because it’s in their mind that it has to be special! So why not make it?
1. Offer an impromptu ice-cream treat
Who does not relish a yummy ice-cream bonanza, that too when you are least expecting it? As soon as you are done with your work, tell your kids that you are taking them for a short drive, of course, maintaining all the Covid guidelines and safety measures. Once you are out, surprise them with a visit to their favorite ice-cream parlor. The looks of approval will melt your heart.
2. Surprise sleepover with a best friend.
Well, the second one we bet your child is going to love the most. But for this, you need to plan up things a few days prior and talk with her best friend’s parents. Ask them if they can bring their daughter for a sleepover. And what’s next? You will enjoy the way both friends scream, dance, jump up and down, get crazy at each other for a minute, and a lot of laughter all night long. Indeed the best surprise ever!
3. Leave a surprise under the pillow
When your little one is off to sleep in the night, quietly slip a small surprise gift for your child this Children’s day under the pillow, neatly wrapped and with Happy Children’s Day written on it. The gift need not be an expensive one; classic children’s books or a set of crayons and drawing books will do. It is the thought that matters. Watching her glowy face when she discovers the gift under the pillow will be a great treat as well as a joyful treat for your eyes too.
4. Caring and sense of inclusiveness
With the growing concerns about global warming and climate change, planting a sapling and helping it grow is the best you can do. Nothing goes best other than watching out for your little one getting into the act. Go for a nearby nursery visit, show the kids the plants there, let them choose a few, and come back with a sapling for your garden. “Trees happen to be our closest relatives.” What they exhale, we inhale. What we exhale, they inhale. Therefore, this children’s day, you can surprise your child with a gift of nature.
5. Reality of life
With nuclear families and working parents taking over the social fabric, eventually, children are getting farther to family values and compassion amongst the family members. Therefore, it becomes important to make your kids learn these values in life. Taking them for an old age home visit is a damn good idea. That is the only place where they will get to know how the elderly spend the rest of their lives. Planning for a visit? Jaipur is the place. It’s, in fact, the home to many of the oldies. Visiting such places will show your children the reality of life and teach them values such as respect, compassion, helpfulness, etc.
6. Sense of satisfaction and helping the needy
Taking your child for a surprise visit to a school of specially-abled children on this Children’s day will show them that not everyone in this world has all the privileges that your kids have. It gives them a feeling of being lucky, and humility will set-in. Besides, it will allow them to see the struggles specially-abled children are going through, even for their basic necessities. This, in turn, will give them a sense of humility and will trigger a sense of giving, donating, helping the needy, and, most importantly learn to be satisfied with whatever they have.
7. Go for Hiking
Some of the best memories that can be made are those sunrises or sunsets over a mountaintop; This is especially true with your kids. Take them out for an easy hike this children’s day and have a picnic at the top of the mountain or hill. What else can be more pleasant than watching a sunrise and a sunset at the peak before making your way back?
8. A meet up with grandparents
We all would agree on the thought that kids love spending time with their grandparents. So this children’s day, why not take your kids to them? You can arrange something crazy and exciting where both grandparents and grandchildren can participate. Suppose they are already staying with their grandparents. In that case, you can go for a family picnic somewhere nearby where both of them would be asked to acknowledge the relationship they share with each other and the stories of their childhood. This is going to be so much fun! This will even help your child to learn from the veteran experiences they share.
9. Gift them chocolates and sweets
To be celebrated on November 14, Children’s Day is the time to pamper your kids with lots of love and chocolates! “Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye.” This special day calls for some indulgence in chocolates. So why not switch from the boring vegetable stew to some chocolate cheese toast in the kitchen and surprise your child this Children’s day? We bet your little one will love you even more.
10. Have a Costume Party
There aren’t many activities that are as fun or creative for kids as costume parties. Let’s face it. Watching the little ones dress up in their favorite characters, dancing, singing, eating cake, playing in a bouncy house, and playing fun party games, don’t have much of a downside. Remember, the costumes party should be based on the children’s day theme ideas. So this 14th Nov lets bring a wide smile on their face. Let’s make it very special amidst this new normal.
The ideas just don’t end here. You can ask your kids about things they would like to try out on a special day. The innocence that lies in a child’s eyes holds priceless gems of obscure emotions and talents, waiting to be revealed and accepted. Why not try and spill the jar of upright madness and let them discover themselves a little more than they do now. Spread the joy- as Chacha Nehru once said, “Time is not measured by the passing of years but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves.”
