DD News, the public broadcaster of India, has started lockdown challenge for kids as they have been confined to the four walls due to the ongoing COVID-19 social distancing measures. The Government of India announced a two-week extension of the lockdown last week which was supposed to end on May 3.
The initiative by DD News is aimed at keeping the kids engaged in different activities and simultaneously use the time to enhance their activities during the lockdown period. The public broadcaster has asked viewers to share images and video clips of their kids if they have any magic trick up their sleeves.
Share photos & videos of your kids revealing what magic tricks they've got under their hats!— DD News (@DDNewslive) May 4, 2020
Selected entries to feature on DD News' Kids Time
According to the rules, the images and videos should have the kids performing magic tricks and the name, age and school of the child must be shared along with it. The participants should also use the hashtag #lockdown challenge and tag the official Twitter handle @DDNewslive. The selected entries will feature during the Kids Time programme of the DD News.
The channel has been giving daily challenges for kids during the lockdown period by performing several activities including block painting, planting trees, and watching birds among others. Check out some of the daily challenges:
