At Central Kids Ōtorohonga, we recently celebrated Diwali for the first time. It was a wonderful day, full of colour, laughter, lights and fun. In preparation, the day before our tamariki helped to make some delicious treats, and our ‘Happy Diwali’ sign. This was accompanied by floral and firework drawings.
On the day, the children enjoyed the paper flowers, lights, music, colourful messy play, and a delicious morning kai. They also made salt dough tea candle holders, and their own beaded necklaces.
