As we always like to learn about fun holidays in our homeschool (any excuse to pause the core curriculum!) I have shared with you some fun Diwali activities we will be doing.

Prior to moving to America over 4 years ago, we went to a number of Diwali events in Leicester, UK, where we are from.

Leicester holds the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India, and it was full of laughter, dancing, and lights. In fact, we looked forward to it every year.

We love creating free kids coloring pages, and we either use them as a supplement for a lesson we are studying or to calm the mood! Coloring is a great way for them to refocus and relax, and great for improving fine motor skills.

Diwali: The Triumph of Good Over Evil

Our Diwali story is based on one of the most popular stories.

it is about a god named Lord Rama.

He was a really important god in the Hindu religion.

The story goes that Lord Rama, along with his wife Sita was sent to live in a forest for 14 years after he was exiled from his kingdom.

While they were in the forest, a bad king named Ravana kidnapped Sita.

Lord Rama was really brave and with the help of an army of monkeys, he fought a really hard battle to get Sita back and defeat Ravana.
