“Kiddies paint their moods in shades of blue”
The Kindergarten section of Shantiniketan Indian School celebrated Blue Day on 27th September, 2016. It was a pleasant and a cool blue day for the tiny tots.
The significance of blue colour was reiterated through a series of activities. The dress code of the day was blue.
Excitement and enthusiasm was visible everywhere. All the children came dressed up in different shades and hues of blue. The classrooms were decorated with blue balloons and children were introduced to different shades of blue.
Blue – the colour of loyalty, strength, wisdom and trust had a very positive impact on tiny tots bringing in harmony and brotherhood.
Clad in blue dresses, students were made to recognize blue colour through different games and play-way activities. An array of blue coloured objects like umbrella, ball, cloud, flowers etc. were at display thus providing the students opportunities to have a clear sense of the colour and its importance.
The little ones of KG I made a blue whale through cotton dabbing and a variety of fishes were crafted with paper plates. While the senior KG children got engaged in finger printing, free hand drawing, collage work, colouring etc.
Blue Day was an amazing learning experience which had a long lasting effect on each student. Early identification of colours helped to create the cognitive link between visual clues and words which is an important part of a child’s development.
It was indeed a visual treat to see the good effects of blue colour on our little ones.
