To celebrate the festival of lights, our under 2s were kindly joined by one of our parents who helped us paint some beautiful firework pictures. We used our hands & brushes to create bright, swirling patterns, just like fireworks lighting up the night sky! Meanwhile, pre-school watched a film about the festival of lights & all about what happens for Diwali & why it’s celebrated. They then made a giant Diva lamp picture and Rangoli patterns using chickpeas, kidney beans & green lentils. For lunch, Mitali treated us to a traditional vegetable curry. Pre-school also walked to the local Indian supermarket to get some food tasters. We chose vegetable samosas & Khaman Dhokla (a Steamed chickpea cake). Delicious!
