Weekend Kids Karnival: Gift Your Child Tons of Fun While Helping Feed Migrant Workers

Weekend Kids Karnival: Gift Your Child Tons of Fun While Helping Feed Migrant Workers

Let your kids have a gala this weekend with engaging stories, super cool science experiments and mesmerising magic! All the while helping those who need it the most. Book now!

With The Positive Collective, The Better India’s COVID-19 coverage is available to regional language publications for free. Write to for more details.

With nowhere to go, no friends to call over and hardly any outdoor activities that one can participate in, the 2020 summer may seem never-ending for both adults and children.

But guess what? The Better India is soon about to change that with a super fun Saturday, filled with stories, cool science experiments and magic, to get over the blues!

What’s more, while your young ones enjoy two hours of absolute delight, you can help hundreds of daily wage earners, frontline workers and migrant labourers stay safe during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Ready to make this weekend fun and valuable at the same time? Click here to join Kids Karnival For A Cause!

What to expect at the Kids Karnival:

Well, we have a master storyteller to keep the kids engaged, a session to bring out the artist in them and a magic show that will leave them mesmerised!

Can’t step outside? Let this storyteller help you travel beyond space and time:

Stories are an integral part of childhood. My grandparents told the best and most vivid stories—so much so, that it was easy to picture every scene as it happened—even something like two cranes holding a stick and a tortoise hanging on.

Today, when it looks like this wonderful activity is losing to online games and videos, Vikram Sridhar is here to help your kids go back in time. Vikram is a master storyteller who can keep kids as well as adults hooked on every word he speaks. With over 120 story-telling sessions under his belt, Vikram explores our rich heritage of oral literature.

This Saturday, let’s get immersed in stories of people, animals, birds, trees and more!

Science is cool and fun! Don’t believe us? Ask Nitika Dial, the founder of WonderLab, an organisation dedicated to developing a sense of intrigue and curiosity about science in young kids.

Nikita’s experiments and activities are so fun; even her 4-year-old enjoys them!

This Saturday, Nikita will show you how to create marble art with oil and water. Plus, you get to be a chemistry wizard right from your kitchen. She will teach you all about the chemistry in simple ingredients that you eat, drink and smell every day!

How will the Kids Karnival help labourers and workers?kids weekend karnival

From Meghalaya to Mumbai and from Raipur to Tiruppur, The Better India has collaborated with IAS and IRS officers to support the vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Each ticket to the Kids Karnival costs Rs 500 and is a donation to these campaigns. You can also opt for a larger amount to donate and book your young one’s place in the Saturday Karnival.

All your proceedings will go towards the funds collected to get daily wage earners and frontline workers back on their feet.
