Smart Art: Rangoli Patterns > Stop by the art studio as we create beautiful, brightly colored Rangoli patterns that will illuminate and shine

Cultural Connection (11:30 a.m.): Diya Lanterns > The Ektaa Center will be here to share the traditions of Diwali and help us create different Diya lanterns to celebrate the festival of lights.

Holiday History (3:30 p.m.): Diwali > Learn the history and traditions behind this luminous celebration as we read a colorful story all about Diwali.

 

Grown-up Tip:   Exposing your child to other cultures and traditions helps them understand and respect differences and similarities among those in your community. Engage with them by participating in the activities and ask them questions about the process, their observations, and if they notice any similarities to their own traditions.
