We having been celebrating Diwali the Hindu 'festival of lights' . Within the nursery we have done lots of exciting activities with the children to help them understand and celebrate the festival. We have made and decorated tea light holders, as the festival celebrates the victory of good over evil and light over darkness.
The children have made their own 'rangoli patterns' these are drawn on the floors in homes to encourage the goddess Lakshmi to enter the home.
In pre-school we did our own henna painting on hands and arms and this is a form of decoration for the body, used during celebrations.
