Kids Craft Camp on July 2nd, 2013 in Dallas, TX

Dallas GOD Chapter conducted a Craft camp for Kids on Tuesday, July 2nd 2013. 11 kids and their parents participated in the camp. The camp began with the rendition of Mahamantra by all the kids, parents and volunteers. The kids were very eager to see what the day had in store for them and were very thrilled to hear that they could take home all the craft work they did. The kids joyfully started to work on canvas painting and Mahamantra was traced on each canvas. Kids had fun picking their colors of chumki. Each family had a table to spread out their work. The children worked together with their parents on the canvas painting. Sticking the chumki looked easy but required a lot of patience and it was good to work with a friend or sibling. The canvas painting was interspersed with short snack and stretch breaks. Rock painting session was also started in parallel to canvas painting. Lady Bugs were painted on rocks. The kids really enjoyed picking their colors and made thumb prints on the lady bug. While the paint dried on the ladybugs, the kids took a detour to canvas to work on Mahamantra painting. The kids by then got a hang of sticking the chumki and were enthusiastically counting how many Rama’s and how many Krishna’s they had completed and were wondering who would be the first one to finish. They enjoyed the excellent homemade lunch prepared by GOD volunteers. Some of them couldn’t peel themselves away from work till they had completed the canvas. It was amazing to see how enthusiastic they were!! The best part of the day was yet to come – clay modeling with play dough. The girls learnt to make roses and offered it to Lord Krishna and that was the best part of the day for the girls admiring their roses. The boys used clay and made snakes and each made a word from the root word ‘MahaMantra’. The boys also made idols from clay, snake Kaliya, Santa Claus, SuperMan and Little Ganesha to name a few. The kids were so creative till the end. By the immense grace of Sri Swamiji, it was indeed a wonderful day. The kids made new friends, learnt new crafts, shared what they had learnt with everyone, and played with their new friends and had a great day.
