Maslenitsa: the scenario of a holiday for school and kindergarten of

B Maslenitsa is noted 2013 from March 11 to March 17. Already began tradition to arrange these days children`s holidays - at school, kindergarten. We offer the scenario of a holiday of Maslenitsa which will help children and adults to play and have fun much.


Maslenitsa - week before the Lent - in ancient Slavic tradition was devoted to a farewell to winter and a meeting of spring, fertility of the earth and a reproduction at people, to honoring of ancestors. With arrival of Christianity the sense of a holiday began to include also a splash of the negative energy which collected during the winter, reconciliation between people, forgiveness of relatives, preparation for the Lent.

the Majority of games and entertainments for Maslenitsa was devoted by

to search of the bride and groom, the choice of couple - upon termination of the Lent on the Red hill to celebrate a wedding.

Today Maslenitsa - an excellent opportunity to remember national traditions: round games, national songs, chastushkas, poteshka and tales. We suggest to study them together with children and to carry out a cheerful holiday of Maslenitsa at school or kindergarten.
