Fun-filled activities planned for a summer blast
Hyderabad, April 26, 2017: It’s that time of the year that kids eagerly wait for – summer vacations. While some enjoy the trips to their hometown, others enjoy the leisure of waking up late. For many kids, the most exciting part of the vacations are the summer camps where they can practice their hobby. Sesame Street Preschool in Anantapur, Madinaguda, Manikonda and Telecom Nagar (Gachibowli), Hyderabad have planned an exciting annual summer camp, KALAKRITI. This year at Camp Sesame kids will explore and experience different professions and will become budding artist, chefs, discoverers and farmers.
Camp Sesame is designed for children aged 2 to 8 years and will be spread across 4 weeks (Mon-Fri). During the camp children will engage in age-appropriate art techniques as they work with colours, shapes, textures, designs and forms as they create their own masterpieces. They will learn various art techniques using both conventional and non-conventional medium like paper, paint, foam, starch etc. There will also be sessions on no fire cooking which will help children develop an understanding of making healthy food choices and expose them to numeracy concepts of weight, measure etc. The Khojak,(Little Discoverers) programme will introduce children to the ever engaging world of science with age-appropriate fun experiments. This will give them a hands-on, project-based learning where they discover the, ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’s’ of their world. The urban farming programme- Bagbani will encourage children to be the little environmentalist while it exposes them to create their own indoor farms, engage in nature crafts, recycle and reuse resources. All these programmes will be interwoven with lots of play, games, songs and dances.
