Diwali is a Festival of Lights and one of the biggest celebrations in India each year! Wee Watch Providers and children enjoyed discovering and exploring India in November.

With white lights setting the tone in the room, we made Rangoli using glitter glue rather than the traditional coloured sand.

The children practiced their fine motor skills while stringing flower garlands to wear. It’s incredible to watch their skills develop and improve as they work at it.

We also created some elephant masks. The children painted them and decorated the masks with gems

Snacks of clementines, raisins, pistachios, Kheer (rice pudding) and Lhassi (mango and yogurt smoothie) were sampled by all.

Both the Providers and children enjoyed experiencing smells, tastes, sounds and words from another country!
