It’s Diwali time folks and while all of us are busy cleaning, decorating, shopping and preparing delicacies, our children should not feel left out or get bored for not having much to do.
Here are three things you can do to keep your children busy, and the best part is that it works for children of all ages!
Let them wrap the gifts this time. When children are given responsibility they feel a sense of pride and importance.
Even if they don’t do it perfectly it’s all right. Tell everyone about it and just see them gleaming with happiness.
Pro Tip: Wrap your gifts using newspapers
That way your child can have as many trials and errors as they wish to, leading to a perfectly wrapped gift.
And you also end up teaching them about reuse and recycle, helping save the environment in a little way.
Flower rangoli is so so easy to make, your child can make it with minimal assistance.
The plan is to keep them engaged and make them feel very important. So you have to be ready to bear a few bloopers.
Pro Tip: Use different types of leaves and differed coloured flowers.
That way, your child can try multiple patterns.
Which means longer engagement time.
How i made this candle
All you need is
Melt the wax in a pan with a thick base. Add colour to it.
Meanwhile line the glass with a little oil and lot of glitter.
Place the wick
Pour the wax in the glass.
Sprinkle a layer of glitter.
Repeat 2 more times with different colours.
Pro tip: If you don’t have time to get the material,
Just call for the plain candles, melt them up and use their wick. Simple!
That’s what i did 😉
Bangle Tea light holder
This one is super simple.
Just take different coloured candles and glue them together. Your child will love doing it and it also improves hand eye coordination.
Once you have them glued together, cut out a cardboard and place it on an origami sheet.
Using glue stick the candle on the cardboard.
Draw different patterns on the sheet, stick mirrors and embellishments and a beautiful decor item is ready!
Hope you like these ideas and if you happen to try them out, do share them with me here.
Wish you all a very Happy Diwali ✨
