Help celebrate Diwali with us!
Diwali, sometimes known as the Festival of Lights, is an important and ancient Indian Festival that signifies the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil and the renewal of life.
Around the time of Diwali it is common to see Rangoli. This is a traditional Indian art, usually created on the floor using coloured powders such as rice, quartz, flour and sand. Rangoli is generally created during festivals or auspicious occasions; they are seen as good luck and are representations of strength and generosity.
Choose a design and colour your own rangoli. Then cut it out and then add it to our beautiful Diwali display.
