With Rakhi round the corner, here are some fun and easy rakhis that you can make with your toddler. Don’t handmade rakhis especially ones made these cuties have a charm of their own? And of-course another way to keep them engaged!!
Here’s what I have tried with my 2-year old. They are easy to make, funky and will be loved by all.
1. This was little funkier rather than ornamental. Babies love accessories. So this one was a little cap on a Satin Ribbon. Just stick on and your rakhi is ready!!
2. A flower and feather!! That’s easy. Stick them on a ribbon and you are done.
3. Next is a “Butterfly rakhi”. On a golden sequins paste 2 pieces of hearts in opposite direction. Cool na!!
4. Give little extra bling to thermocol balls by putting little glitter on them. Paste them on sequins.
5. Layering of ribbons: There many pretty laces available in market. There are ribbons to pack gifts, satin ribbon, our all time favourite, there also broad shiny one available. Mix n match few laces and try layering them. On the top paste a “Ganesha” motif, which will give a traditional touch to your rakhi. This one requires little effort but the end result is fantastic.
6. Flower rakhi: You can cut a few shapes in different colours like here we have used purple and yellow in a circle and square. You can add more shapes in more colours. It will make your rakhi look attractive. Paste a flower on top.
7. Star shaped rakhi: Take a recycled sheet or chart paper. Cut it in a shape of star. Apply fevicol and golden glitter to it. Cut a small piece in circular shape, apply silver glitter to it. Paste it in the center of the Star. So attractive!
8. Alphabet rakhi: Toddlers who have started recognizing letters of the alphabet will surely love making this one. On a sequin, write a letter with microtip marker n let kids paste shiny crystals on that. This is a good way to teach kids alphabets as well.
9. Lace Fun: Here we have used shiny blue and silver laces. Cut 2 laces in different sizes. Paste the smaller lace on the bigger one and you are done.
10. Traditional Rakhi: Put the wedding invitation cards to use. Cut different shapes in different colours. Put a green stone in the center and make a circle with red stones.
