At festivals, having the families spend time together and bond is a goal. Thus, there are many activities for children and adults to have fun together.
The activities help stimulate creativity and competitiveness while at the same time encouraging fun and bonding. It is an opportunity for children to enjoy their youth and also for adults to let loose.
Braid your own festival wristbands
At festivals, it’s common to take home bracelets and wristbands as souvenirs. They embody the laughter and fun experienced at events and are a great way to keep the memory of things. These bracelets tend to be colourful and have wordings that make them easily identifiable and related to the festival. It’s practically a tradition, and that’s why hosts almost always distribute it during the events.
In this activity, children and adults work together to create their wristbands with any colour and design they like. This event combines the iconic festival wristbands with the classic activity of braiding bracelets. This way, the festival wristbands are more memorable as the people are actually the ones who make them. At the same time, it gives more opportunities for the festival-goers to spend time together.
The art of modelling balloons keeps everyone interested to a certain degree. It’s an excellent activity for everyone to try out. For those who’d rather watch, it’s also interesting to see the many shapes. In balloon modelling, players twist a single balloon or several balloons into various shapes. More often than not, these shapes are animals. Players may use their lungs to inflate balloons in this activity, but many now use any type of pump.
This activity lets children see their favourite things come to life in the form of balloons. It entices children to try it out for themselves, especially if they’re fast at learning new things. Adults can also relieve their stress through fun-filled activities and learn a new skill, even if it is more of a party skill.
