So Halloween is over, bonfire night has passed and the children are back at school. Nights are getting darker and colder as Autumn takes a firm grip. There are still some celebrations that can enable you and your kids to be crafty before the real countdown to Christmas begins though! Diwali this year is celebrated on Tuesday 13th November. Diyas (or Divas) are traditionally made from clay and hold a small amount of oil and a wick. They are lit around the house on Diwali so that Goddess Lakshmi (Goddess of Wealth) can find her way into your house. We will be learning about Diwali during school and I intend to make these really simple but effective Diyas with my kids.
