Diwali was in the holidays this year. We talked about Diwali being the Hindu ‘Festival of Light’ and some of the ways it is celebrated. We linked this to the different things the children celebrate with their families and friends.
The children noticed the similarities between Bonfire night and Diwali. They both have sparklers, fireworks and nice food.
At the playdough table the children helped to make some salt dough.
They made and decorated diva lamps with the salt dough.
