Nursery children have been learning about Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights. They have all made their own diva lamps which are used to signify the triumph of good over evil in the story of Rama and Sita. The children loved listening to the story of Prince Rama rescuing Sita from the evil king Ravana.
Step 1 – we used clay to make the small lamps.
Step 2 – we painted the clay lamps.
Step 3 – we decorated the lamps with glitter and then varnished them.
Step 4 – we placed tea lights in the divas.
