Celebrate Diwali With Children

Diwali is a festival celebrated in India on the 29th-30th October this year. It signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. Also acclaimed as the Festival of Lights, Diwali is associated with lights, sweets, and liveliness. Families light diyas (clay lamps) throughout their home to ward off darkness and evil. Fireworks also play a significant role in celebrating Diwali with families setting off many different types of fireworks throughout the day and into the night. 

To celebrate Diwali we have 8 Diwali colouring pages to use. They can be used as part of a craft experience, or children can paint, decorate or cut them out. 

Download the colouring pages here: Diwali Colouring Pages

Happy Diwali!
