15th August i.e. the Indian Independence Day is the most historically relevant day in our country. Right from the beginning, children are taught about the importance of this day. Over time, children learn more about Independence Day from their text books and the television. One of the most enjoyable days in a child’s school life is the Fancy Dress day. Children love to dress up as people whom they idolize and what can be a better option than dressing them up as any of the Indian Freedom Fighters who fought till their last breath for the freedom of our country. Since Independence Day is just around the corner, we have decided to bring some of the best Fancy Dress competition ideas for all mothers.
Dress your children and yourself up in Indian colors. You may also wear ethnic wear and add tricolor accessories like head bands, scrunchies, bangles and scarves. For men, white kurta payjama is the most popular dress while women can choose from sarees to kurtas in the colors of Indian flag.
Some of the popular fancy dress ideas for Independence Day are:
Mahatma Gandhi – Dress your child up in plain white dhoti, a pair of spectacles and a stick in hand. You can tell your child to say “Hey Ram” on stage.
Bhagat Singh – If you want your child to dress up as Bhagat Singh, then you simply need to dress him/her up in shirt and trousers with a hat. The typical moustache can be made using kajal pencil. The dialogue for this fancy dress can be “inquilab zindabad“.
Sarojini Naidu – Dress your child up in a simple cotton saree for fancy dress as Sarojini Naidu. She was the first governor of the state of Uttar Pradesh. She was also known as the “Nightingale of India”.
Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar – Dress your child in shirt, trousers and blazer along with a neck tie. Also add a pair of spectacles. Teach him/her to do the famous hand gesture on stage.
Not just school going child, you can also dress up your babies and toddlers to celebrate Independence Day/ Republic Day. A reader shared this lovely picture of her son dressed in Indian tricolour.
Happy Independence Day and Jai Hind !!
