We are loving the Christmas spirit that seems to be everywhere right now! Lights, music, decorations; they all seem to add to the atmosphere that helps us all slow down a little bit and make more eye contact with strangers and wish one another a Merry Christmas. Something about the holiday season brings generosity to the forefront, and in that same spirit, we want to share a gift with you! We are grateful to have you as a part of our IndianTies family, and we hope this holiday season has brought, and will continue to bring, amazing memories, meaningful time with loved ones, and that feeling of connection with those around us.
Click on the image above to access the printable file and follow the instructions for your child to be able to make their own Indian drum, called a Dhol (a double headed drum). We encourage you to use a thicker paper like cardstock, or even use the template to cut out thin cardboard.
Remember that every month our subscribers receive a 2 page color letter from Ravi, their new pen pal who is visiting all over India, a postcard with facts about the specific city or state that is highlighted that month, clues to help solve the mystery, and a craft that correlates with that month's place of focus. Don't miss the opportunity to sign your child(ren) up for fun, educational, screen-free time to spend together as a family and deepen their connection to India.
Sign up by December 25th to receive your first envelope in the mail in January. We will send you a digital letter from Ravi now that you can print out to put in their stocking or wrap it up and put it under the tree.
Time is running out - act now!
May you and your loved ones enjoy this season together - have a very Merry Christmas!!
