Explore celebrations across the globe! Capture a celebratory moment of your own by designing a colorful fabric banner!
Conduct a class discussion on celebrations. What is a celebration? Why do we celebrate things? A celebration is a way of observing and honoring a notable event or occasion in a way that is outside one’s usual routine. Birthday parties, holiday dinners, and parades are all examples of celebrations! Ask students to name celebrations. Can they think of something that is celebrated that is unique to their family or friends?
Countries all over the world celebrate important events with special rituals and traditions. Students research holidays from around the globe that they find interesting and unique, such as the Middle Eastern holiday called No Ruz! Have a class discussion about the traditions that occur in celebration of those holidays.
Students think about an occasion in their life that they would like to celebrate. Perhaps they earned an “A” on their last science test or went skateboarding for the first time without falling down! Students decide what they would do to celebrate such an event and create a fabric banner to hang during the celebration! Students get inspiration from the holidays around the world they discovered in their research.
On a large piece of 100% cotton fabric, draw colorful symbols, designs, and phrases with Crayola® Bright Fabric Markers! Clearly represent the event you’re celebrating with your illustrations. Place a piece of paper underneath the drawing area to prevent bleed through. Draw your design, making sure you saturated the cloth. Stain Advisement: Fabric markers are permanent on clothing and contain colorants that may stain household surfaces. Wear a smock to protect clothing and cover your work surface. Recap markers as soon as possible and store in a horizontal position. Do not shake markers.
When students are finished, have an adult assist in ironing the design. Set iron on cotton setting and iron on the reverse side using a back and forth motion for 4 minutes. Or the garment can be placed in the dryer for 30 minutes on the hottest setting. This will fix the color to the fabric.
