When I showed Putti some of the Tricolor photos from my 'Independence Day Round up', she wanted to make one using pulses right away. And since I had most of the items required for it, we got to work on it. We made an Indian Flag using pulses. She loved the whole process as it involved lots of glue, her favorite medium!!
- Masoor Dal (Red Lentils)
- Sabudana (Pearl Tapioca) (Could use Rice too, I used them as it was in my pantry and is brighter than rice)
- Whole Moong (Green gram)
- Red Kidney Bean
- Elmers Glue
- Blue Paint
- a Paint brush
- Cardstock (foam board would be better)
First I drew the 'Flag of India' on the card and let Putti color it with crayons. You could print a flag too. Avoid using marker as the color will bleed when you brush glue over it.
Happy 65th Independence Day to all my Fellow Indians !!!
