The children very much enjoyed the story of Rama and Sita and have all made clay diva lamps to help guide Rama and Sita back on their journey. The children painted Rangoli patterns, traditionally a symbol of welcome. They also made sweets, traditionally given to children during Diwali celebrations. Making the sweets was hard work as the mixture was especially sticky. The sweets were delicious. The children have been dancing to Indian music and Tamil music throughout the week and finished the week with a circle time, where they quietly reflected on the week’s activities. They also found out what it was like to meditate in the traditional style. Happy Diwali. Namaste!
