Rangoli Patterns

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Amy Kiri

This idea relates to Hinduism at the time of Divali.

Children can make effective rangoli patterns on square pieces of sand paper to obtain the powder effect of rangoli patterns. They can paint simple patterns or copy patterns from a stimulus e.g (a book on divali) on to the sand paper.

Try it! They look great!

Anna Richards suggested adding sand to the paint if you do not have sand paper available to you.
