Nag Panchami Celebration at Sahyadri Pre-School A Fun and Educational Experience!

  • August 22, 2023


Nag Panchami is a traditional Hindu festival that celebrates the worship of snakes, a significant creature in Indian mythology. At  Sahyadri Pre-School we believe in providing a holistic education that includes cultural and traditional values. This year, we organized a special Nag Panchami event to introduce our preschoolers to this beautiful and educational celebration. Let's dive into the details of our fun-filled day!

The Importance of Nag Panchami: Nag Panchami is celebrated on the fifth day of the bright half of the lunar month of Shravan (usually falling in July or August). It is believed to honor the serpent god, Lord Shiva, and his divine snake companions. Snakes are considered sacred in Hinduism and symbolize fertility and protection.

Preparation and Decorations: Our preschool was buzzing with excitement in the days leading up to Nag Panchami. The classrooms were adorned with colorful rangoli designs depicting snakes, flowers, and traditional motifs. Our little ones actively participated in the decoration process, enhancing their creative skills.

Dress-up Day: To make the event more engaging, we encouraged our preschoolers to come dressed in traditional Indian attire. The sight of children in beautiful sarees and dhotis added an authentic touch to the celebration.

Storytelling and Mythological Tales: We started the day by gathering all the children in a circle and narrating age-appropriate mythological stories related to snakes. These stories not only entertained but also educated the children about the significance of Nag Panchami.

Snake Craft Activity: Following the storytelling session, our young learners engaged in a delightful snake craft activity. They had the opportunity to create their own snake-shaped crafts using colorful paper, markers, and glue. This hands-on experience allowed them to develop fine motor skills while having fun.

Snake Dance and Music: A lively snake dance performance was organized, where children swayed to traditional snake-charming music. This not only encouraged physical activity but also introduced them to Indian dance and rhythm.

Snake-themed Snacks: We couldn't forget about the little tummies! Special snake-shaped snacks were prepared for the children, including sandwiches, fruit kebabs, and snake-shaped cookies. This provided an opportunity to teach them about healthy eating habits while having a themed treat.


Conclusion: Nag Panchami at [Preschool Name] was a wonderful blend of tradition, education, and fun. Our preschoolers not only had a memorable time but also gained a deeper understanding of the cultural heritage and mythology associated with this festival. We believe that such events enrich their learning experience and help them grow into well-rounded individuals.

We look forward to organizing more such engaging and educational celebrations in the future, ensuring that our preschoolers continue to learn and appreciate the diverse cultures and traditions that make our world so fascinating.
