COMPULSORY ACTIVITY

Let’s share some tips to make this period fruitful and happy.

• Have meals with your parents. Make these moments precious by sharing your day’s
events, incidents, important happenings, news of that day while you’re sitting together
for at least 30 days.

• Wash your own plates after every meal for at least 15 days. You learn dignity of labour
from such activities.

• Help your parents in cooking. Request your parents to help you make vegetable and fruit
salad.

• Visit your grandparents, spend time with them. Their love and emotional support is very
important for your growth. Share your experiences with them. Ask them to share their
stories with you and make your visit memorable by clicking pictures with them.

• Gather information about fruit bearing plants. Buy some seeds and plant them in pots, in
your garden or in the park near your house. Nurture these plants by watering them
regularly and looking after them. Also, take some pictures of its growth on weekly basis.
