Republic day

A quick craft today to mark republic day celebrations in India. Nadia glued together some sticks to create a flag.DSCF4872

She colored it orange, green and drew the Askhok chakra.DSCF4874

She asked a lot of questions about why orange, green and what the spokes signify.DSCF4875

Here’s our candle holder for republic day.DSCF4876Happy republic day.
