Today we learned about one of the most celebrated Hindu holidays, Diwali. It is most referred to as The Festval of Lights. We started our day by looking at some Rangoli designs that are often drawn in doorways for good luck. The class then colored some of their own Rangoli designs.
During Diwali may sweets are exchanged. I brought in some Gulab Jamun for the kids to try. We were pretty split as to whether we liked it or not!
In honor on the Festival of Lights, we made our own lanterns. In India, little clay pots are lit and left around buildings and windows.
