For the first time ever, probably, in the history of Thane is a festival that is completely dedicated to celebration of the monsoons. The Monsoon Splash gives everyone the opportunity to hop their way into some monsoon fun. It will be a combination of science, literature, art, craft and sports with some healthy mud play thrown in as well!
And what better mascot for the season than the adorable frog! In fact if there is any one creature that is instantly associated with the rains, it is the frog and one can hear their chorus of croaks in the evenings as soon as the first puddles begin to form. Frogs appear as cute characters in many a childhood tale and it is fun to watch them hop around in the puddles – much like our kids who can’t resist a splash in muddy puddles. More importantly, frogs are considered to be an indicator species by scientists. Their ability, as amphibians, to live on both land and water makes them uniquely suited for studies by scientists regarding the health of our environment.
So this monsoon, there are going to be several workshops and games all centered on our signature creature for the season – the Frog. Participants will come to know a lot more about the lives of frogs through the special film presentation. Games include Frog Race, Jumping Contest, Umbrella Relay, Water Bucket Race, Frog Skipping as well as less strenuous ones like Lifecycle Memory Game, Hop on a Lilly Pad, Feed A Bug, Hibernating Frog Dig.
The workshops planned include ones which enhance your creativity like learning to make Origami paper art, using clay to recreate the life cycle of a frog, the art of stone painting to make, what else, a frog! Also, remember those cute images of frogs holding onto little mushroom umbrellas? Drawing inspiration from them, is the workshop where children, our little frogs, will be painting their own umbrellas. There will also be a special Frog Yoga session.
For the little kids who love to hear a story is the exciting and engaging narration of the tale Home Sweet Home – Reddit. A story about a frog that lives in a bucket, but suddenly, he has to find a new home! Will any of his friends in the garden be able to give him a home? Find out at The Monsoon Splash!
