Celebrating Divali

Today we celebrated the Indian festival of Divali which is the festival of light. We heard the story of Rama and Sita and we re-created the story with masks and music. We wore sari's and tasted traditional Indian foods. We also made cards and divas and rangoli patterns with rice and pulses and chalks to welcome visitors. Some of the children recreated mehndi patterns on hand shaped cards. These patterns would be painted on your hands with henna to dye the skin. We had a great time.
