I am currently in India and getting ready for Diwali. Fireworks have already started going off during the day to the lead up of the Diwali. Already bought some fireworks to set off and looking forward in dressing up and spending the day with family and of course the fireworks. Here in India you actually buy firworks and set them off on the streets yourself!! Pretty cool!

Here are some ideas you could do:

I've been asking some children and families at my centre this morning, some ideas that have been shared are to make some Indian food, put up Christmas lights as its celebrating lights, bindis, make a rangoli, henna (painting hands and/or a paper template of hands for chn to decorate)

Happy Diwali all! Today is Diwali isint it or is it tomorrow? Lorina the firework must be going off in India, hope you're having a great time with your family and Maya's first Diwali!! We did a diwalie craft and rangoli at our centre and one of the indian parents there said what a big celebration it is in india. First I thought rangoli is the one they do in their hands and harmony's post cleared that for me. lol.. Been a fun week at work this week. Celebrated halloween on thursday and diwalie on friday! This week went so fast :D

@ Harmony: You have some great ideas on ways to celebrate Diwali. Hope you had a fantastic day.

@ Nat: Sounds like you had a great Diwali! The fireworks started a few days before. It's pretty amazing all the children and adults doing their own fireworks. They have different types of fireworks which they sell in the shops. You just light them up and off they go...:giggle: We just did a few fireworks this year mainly for Maya. She was looking at the fireworks and all the colours... Great time indeed!

Hi,
Diwali is the time of the year, when everybody wants to be near their loved ones. No matter, how far they live from their house and family all round year, but during Diwali everyone visits their loved ones to celebrate the festival. And it is a fact, that Diwali celebration can be extra special when celebrated with people you love. Diwali celebration 2014 can be really splendid if you actually indulge in celebrations and take part in all the rituals with high spirits.
Happy Diwali in advance to all......

How to celebrate a environmentally safe diwali?

1. Don't allow kids to play with crackers without elders supervision.
2. Don't burst crackers near combustible materials.
3. Guide kids not to hold the sparklers near body.
4. Play with crackers in open ground.
5. Don't Wear long dresses while bursting crackers.
6. Don't burst crackers near animals, aged and sick people.

Celebrate a safe and eco-friendly diwali.. !!! :P

I think only in India you can burst your own fireworks! It's incredible to celebrate Diwali in India itself which I have been lucky enough to experience!! Seeing children on the streets all dressed up and enjoying themselves, lighting fireworks and the sounds of so many fireworks going off in each street... It's amazing. It may sound dangerous but you really need to experience it for yourself to get a feel for it! Too bad in Aus we can't do it :giggle:

Happy Diwali all!
