Diwali, or Dipawali, is India's biggest and most important festival of the year. The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness. People create patterns called rangoli on the floor using coloured powders or sand. Diwali a five-day celebration that includes good food, fireworks, coloured sand, and special candles and lamps.
G K Gurukul never fails to surprise children with new ideas and activities for kids. This Diwali our children were super excited to create homemade lantern, pen stand etc. While making this, they not only enjoyed but also got to learn about art and craft skills, developing fine and gross motor skills, eye hand coordination, concentration and cognitive skills. Our children had fun and made most of their amazing gifts.
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, this Diwali we have to be extremely cautious .But all this does not mean that we cannot celebrate it. We just have to be more careful to lower the risk for us and our family. It’s best to not participate in big gatherings, especially in an enclosed space and should avoid public transport and public places. Enjoy your Diwali at home with your family.
