bond on rangoli
Another safe and fun way to get kids involved is to engage with colors- another beautiful custom in Indian culture. Kids learn some serious focus and dedication when designing a colorful rangoli or simpler alternative- kolam in South India. Hand them a pack of colours, and some rangoli stencils and give them a dedicated space. If they are too small, they will have a corner of the room. For larger ones, trust them with space near the entrance to your home. They will feel happy! PS- Remember not to adorn them with the prettiest or new clothes while doing Rangoli!

answer them why
Children need answers. all the time every time. When they see you making those laddus, or doing Lakshmi Puja or lighting so many lamps – they are going to ask you all the questions why do we do what we do. Why not answer it in the language they understand? Tune into a children’s podcast or watch special children’s videos on YouTube with a puppet show on Ramayana to answer their questions. Read books on Diwali, listen to podcasts on stories that answer the why and how. Find the I’m Not Bored podcast that answers all your child’s questions and stokes that curiosity.
