Navratri Party


It's dandiya time! Organize a great Navratri party for your kids and their pals! 
 

Music

2 cassettes should be more than enough for your party. Try and get your hands on a Falguni Pathak tape and an Aati Kya Dandiya Mein - Non Stop Disco Dandiya tape. 
 

Invitations

Send out lovely, ethnic invites. You could make them yourself. Cut out cards from an earthen coulour chart paper, and border it with thick 'mauli' (red thread). Take some yellow and orange paint and make bunches of three dots on the corner of the card. Make a beautiful Om sign on the top centre of the card, and, with a gold pen, write out the invitation.  
 

Dress

Make sure you include the dress code in the invite. The children must be made to dress up in traditional wear. Salwar kameezes for the boys and ghagras for the girls. 
 

Sticks

The children could bring their own dandiya sticks along, or you could distribute sticks at the party. Take a 'mauli' and tie some tiny jingle bells to each dandiya stick. 
 

Ghungroos and Scarves

Children love receiving presents at any party. So give all the girls ghungroos, and the boys, saffron cotton scarves, which they can tie around their waist or forehead. This can be included in your back present budget. 
 

Games

Although it is a dandiya party, remember, the children will just dance for a short period of time, after which they will want to run around and play, so keep some party games planned and ready. 
 

Tablas

Keep a couple of tablas on a mattress and let the children take turns playing them. If you have any other Indian musical instruments like a harmonium (not sitar, you don't want broken strings!), you could keep that out as well.
