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.
If you’re looking for EYFS Diwali lesson plans, then we’ve got this awesome rangoli pattern focus plan for a great enhanced provision or continuous provision idea. Don’t forget our Diwali rice recipe to help you create the perfect rainbow colour!
If you like that, then you’ll love our Diwali diva lamp focus plan, complete with all the links to the EYFS.
Diwali classroom worksheets
Moving on from, but including EYFS, we’ve a plethora of Diwali worksheets for all ages, including Diwali craft resources, Diwali mindfulness colouring and more!
Our Diwali lantern craft template is ideal for a no-mess Diwali craft – children simply colour, stick and go! It’s also a great Diwali treat to take home to parents, or display in your classroom or setting.
For something easy, low prep and fun, try our Diwali mindfulness colouring sheets. You can leave these out in your continuous provision area, or use as a way to encourage mindfulness and creativity.
Something that all children really enjoy is designing their own Mehndi patterns, or using ours with these Diwali Mehndi Pattern Template.
