TIRANGA or Tricolor, the Indian Flag, the name is enough to fill us with the proud feeling. Every Indian citizen must know the details of the Tiranga- 4 colors and Ashoka Chakra.

Indian Independence day, 14th August, and Republic Day, 26th January are the most common occasions where we indulge in making Indian Flag Crafts every year in schools, colleges, public places, government institutes etc.

Such occasions are the best time to teach kids about our country’s history and glorious past and how our brave warriors have earned Independence for us and why they must learn to value it, respect it and use it wisely.

We started making crafts since my boy was 2 and he just loved making the flag and would proudly swing it in the air.. #proudmoment.

So here is a list of absolutely easy and quick Indian flag Crafts that kids can make with easily available items.

This came out the easiest one and looked pretty too. Can he hung on the wall with a ribbon.

  • Popsicles/ Icecream sticks – colored or plain ones that you can color
  • Glue
  • Blue Marker

Steps: Simply stick the colored popsicles in the correct order – Orange- White – Green over 2 blue sticks as base and then draw Ashoka Chakra with the marker.

TIP: These popsicles require time to set in till the glue dries, so be careful not to move these.

Step 2: Drop orange, blue and green colors with dropper in respective order

Step 3: Mix and spread orange and green but not blue {see pic for ref.}

Pulses Indian Flag 

The pulses flag is just a representation and I actually feed the grains/pulses to birds later on and so I do not stick these.

The activity is mostly so that the child gets an idea of the colors of Indian Flag and some fine motor skill development as well.

  • Blue  marker
  • Scissor
  • White paper
  • Plates

Don’t have an after pic, since I did this with my toddler and focused on him to avoid spilling color that forgot to click pics.

 

Paper Flag

The good old traditional way of making a flag – either use colored paper or just color a white paper or paper plate.
