Diwali is a festival celebrated in India that 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.
Halloween is on October 31st and to celebrate we have 8 Halloween colouring pages for children to use. These can be used as colouring pages or painted as part of a Halloween craft experience.
To celebrate and honour National Sorry Day (26th May) & National Reconciliation Week (27 May - June 3), we have created six new Indigenous Posters that can be used by Educators and Parents to assist children in exploring and understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. These posters all have an image that is an important part of the Indigenous community and also has an explanation to accompany each image.
