Diwali Celebrations – Ideas for Children
1.Decking the rooms: Involve your kids in cleaning and decorating the rooms for Diwali. Though this may sound like a chore, throwing out the old can be interesting and picking out a couple of new items to decorate their rooms may be something your kids like.
2.One fun event a day: During Diwali week – On Diwali week, do one fun event a day. Even if it is something simple, like an extra dose of deserts, a candlelight supper with many candles lit all around the table, it can be a way to build up excitement for the big day and beyond.
3.Lamps and Lights: Of course, the festival of lights cannot be complete without decking the outside of the house with safe lighting. Add some dazzle to the inside of the house with safe lamps, candles, or electric holiday lighting. Be safe!
4.Make your Diwali Books: Flip through (or browse through) old photos to create a Diwali book of memories with your kids prior or after the big day. A great way for the kids to show off artistic and techie skills
5.Gifted and talented: It’s all in the packaging nowadays! Get your kids to help you create unique (simple or as elaborate as you want) gift bags and baskets for friends and families. Use glossy paper, ribbons, sparkles to make small bags which you can pack with dried fruits, nuts, sweets or whatever fits your whim and budget
