Make Vaisakhi Cards: Craft Idea for Kids

Making Vaisakhi cards with your kids allows you an opportunity to start a discussion about Sikhism and the story of Vaisakhi, but it also builds anticipation and interest in the holiday.

Making Vaisakhi cards with your kids allows you an opportunity to start a discussion about Sikhism and the story of Vaisakhi, but it also builds anticipation and interest in the holiday. Just like kids start hearing about Christmas and Valentines weeks ahead of the holiday, we need to start talking about Vaisakhi in the days leading up to it. (If you need more ideas for conversation starters, check out our Vaisakhi activities for kids countdown calendar.)

You can work with your kids to create original cards that they can write for their grandparents or cousins, or you can write the cards for your kids. We have a tradition of writing my kids a note each year on Vaisakhi. In the notes I write to them about a trait they have that is admirable of a Sikh, and I remind them of their good actions throughout the year. It’s something I can imagine doing for years to come.  We also put a little bit of cash (whatever we can afford) into their cards and ask them to choose a charity to support with it.

As you are working on the cards with your kids, it’s the perfect time to start a discussion about Sikhi. Just share a few random facts or stories about Sikhism or Vaisakhi while working on your project, and then wait for them to ask me more questions. With my kids this works much better than trying to sit them down and teach them something. For me the goal is not to teach them everything about Vaisakhi in one day, but to spark a lifelong interest in religion and culture.

How to Make Vaisakhi Cards

Depending on the age of your kids and their skill level, you can have them draw out the cards, mix & match scrapbook paper to create patterns, or download a card and write them out. 

We’ve also created 3 downloadable Vaisakhi cards for you to use and share as well. Use the following links to download:

Card 1: multi-colour
Card 2: khanda
Card 3: happy Vaisakhi repeat
