“What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare…”
– William Henry Davies
How often does your child get to be just a child? To stand and stare? Plant a plant? Jump rope? Mix three colours and more and call it his masterpiece? Let loose and dance? Write her heart out?
Given the pressures of modern-day schooling, an urban child gets very little opportunity to actually be a child! With school, tuitions and homework taking up most of the weekday, there is little time to play, shout, sing, paint or just get one’s hands dirty. That’s exactly why you need a day at Carnivale Familia!
A one-day event and a great place for children to explore a range of creative activities!
Workshops at Carnivale Familia
Have fun shopping too at unique stalls by women entrepreneurs, selling creative, artistic and hand-made products.
Entry free for children aged 3 and under.
Around The World Fancy Dress competition
Let your child dress up as a character or person from any country or culture around the world. 10 children across 3 age groups (3 to 5, 6 to 9 and 10 to 13) with the best costumes receive prizes in the form of shopping vouchers.
Pre-register to make sure your child gets photographed at the venue!
Your child gets the chance to go wildly creative – 3 Rangoli patterns that are most unique/innovative win prizes. (Rangoli powders will be available at the venue; this competition can have team participation, i.e. child + accompanying adults; every team must have a child participant. Open to children between ages 6 and 13).
Pre-register to make sure your child gets a shot, since Rangoli slots and materials are limited.
Creative Writing competition
This is a competition that every imaginative child will enjoy. Children across 2 age groups (6 to 9 and 10 to 13) can write in a free-wheeling manner, with some interesting cues provided to get them started. The 3 best submissions in each age group will win prizes.
Pre-register to make sure your child gets to participate, since the time for which this competition is conducted, may be limited.
It’s time for little Picassos to emerge! Drawing competition at the venue will give your child a chance to sketch or paint on an interesting theme. Materials will be provided at the venue. 3 best drawings win prizes. Open to children in 2 age groups (6 to 9 and 10 to 13).
Pre-register to make sure your child gets to participate, since drawing slots and materials are limited.
