We are so excited to be participating in this virtual celebration of light and dark. This introductory activity is a good way to play with the light from your flashlight.
Diwali is a Hindu celebration of light. As we continue our celebration of Diwali we are going to be making marigold flowers to decorate. During Diwali, people use marigolds to decorate because of the color and the scent. The bright smell is believed to help improve mood, and the vibrant color brings good luck.
Celebrate the Diwali Festival of Lights with Discovery Gateway! One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, and good over evil. See our special STEAM Learning Lab where we learn to make a marigold chain to decorate with and a short tutorial on making Rangoli sidewalk art!
