The children here at Derby Oakwood have been making a variety of Diwali crafts today to celebrate the Hindu festival of lights. We have looked at visuals within the rooms to show the children what the Diva Lamps looks like and lanterns etc. The children have taken part in creating various different types of cards such as string painting cards in the baby room which have colourful paint markings on the front. Toddlers have made their own hand print elephants using bright coloured paints on their hands to print onto the card which makes the elephant shape.
All rooms have made some salt dough Diva lamps which again have been painted and decorated in bright coloured craft materials.
All children engaged well throughout and showed good understanding over the activity that was being carried out.
All the gifts looks wonderful and very imaginative! Well done everyone.
