Buster’s Big Festive Rerun – School Activities
Over the past year we have all missed so many important celebrations, events and milestones. And so the KM Charity Team has launched The Big Festive Rerun to help raise vital funds for local charities across the country. But we also wanted to get children and schools involved, and so we have developed activity packs for schools in Kent that don’t only focus on Christmas, but help children to learn about other cultures and festivals that have been missed around the world.
The Big Festive Rerun school activities are just one part of the programme, we also want to celebrate with all of you and so we are hosting Buster’s Big Bash that will have a festive theme this year. Buster’s Big Bash will take place on Saturday 17th July 2021 and there will be fun activities, prize-giving ceremonies, every child will receive a present, and it will be a truly party atmosphere – BUT ALL ADULTS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A CHILD!
The following is a list of the festivals the activities cover:
- Christmas – celebrated all over the world but every country has their own traditions.
Activity: making a paper plate Christmas tree decoration.
- Chinese Lantern Festival – an Asian water and moon festival.
Activity: creating a paper Chinese Lantern.
- Diwali – a major festival celebrated by Hindus, Jains and Sikhs – the festival of lights celebrating the victory of good over evil.
Activity: creating traditional Diwali Rangoli.
- Thanksgiving – mainly known as a North American Holiday – it is celebrated all over the world.
Activity: creating a turkey headband.
We would also like all of the children to create winter snowflakes. They can paste their snowflakes on card, write a personal message to other children of the world and bring them to Buster’s Big Bash and hang them on The Big Festive Rerun tree!
There will be prizes for the best class/school photos of any of the activities listed above and the winners will be announced at Buster’s Big Bash.
