REonDemand's Sikhism workshops bring the faith to life through re-enactments of traditional stories, dressing up, food tasting and a little bit of wonder! We investigate how Guru Hargobind convinced the Emperor to allow the escape of the Rajas and we enjoy the Diwali festivities as they would have done over 400 years ago. There's also plenty of excitement around the 5 Ks and our tent!
Taking a closer look at the founder, Guru Nanak, the children learn about his teachings and the Gurdwara. Also about how Sikhs celebrate and why.
Discovering the importance of the Mul Mantar and the Guru Granth Sahib allow the children to reflect on how we can learn from a religion as well as learn about one.
The story of the formation of the Khalsa with Guru Gobind Singh and the hands on approach to the 5 K's involve the children in drama and laughter. Unlike the story, the children always want to volunteer!
