Are you looking for Diwali Classroom Activities this year? Or perhaps Diwali worksheets, Diwali crafts or Diwali EYFS activities? Then you’re in the right place! We’ve lots of Diwali ideas to help you, and best of all, children will love them!

What is Diwali?

Diwali is Hindu festival of light and is India’s most important holiday. It is a five day celebration and each day has a special significance. Diwali celebrates the return of Rama and Sita, and is a story about how good wins over evil.

Diwali EYFS resources

Children really enjoy doing Diwali crafts, so our Rangoli 2d shape activity sheets are spot on. Children can use either a blank paper plate, or normal A4 paper to create their very own rangoli patterns. So easy and fun, and children can get really creative! Remember, it’s the process rather than the final result that’s important here.
