Diwali is just around the corner, and these festive times are a great opportunity for us parents to introduce our kids to our culture and festivals.
We all want to keep our kids attached to their roots through tradition and culture but in this fast-paced modern world, it is a quite hard thing to do. The festival of Deepavali brings us the opportunity that we have been waiting for so long.
This Diwali makes the most out of the opportunity in hands by introducing your kids to Diwali in the following fun ways.
Coloring is a favorite activity for all children. Give them a piece of paper and a pack of crayons and they will be engrossed in the act of coloring for at least an hour or two. Therefore, this is the simplest way of introducing Diwali to your kids. All that you need to do is print some beautiful coloring pages from the Internet and let them have fun coloring it, while you discuss a little bit about Diwali.
Allow your kids to try their hands on decorating some diyas the way they want to. And when the decoration is done, align the decorated diyas in one line, teaching them the real meaning of ‘Deepavali’, a line of diyas.
This the most loving way of discussing the importance of Diwali with your kiddos. Snuggle up in a cozy blanket and enjoy Diwali story time with kids. This will allow you to have quality time with kids.
Have a nice outing along with your kids, to a Diwali Mela in your neighborhood. You can do shopping while kids can enjoy the Diwali vibe of the Mela. They will observe all the things you are buying as you are preparing for Diwali.
Allow them to get crafty this Diwali vacation. Sit down with them and encourage them to create some beautiful crafts, which you can use as a Diwali decoration.
So this Diwali lay a strong foundation for your little ones, so they are deeply rooted to Indian tradition and values.
