Use colored chalk on sandpaper to make authentic Rangoli designs in the Hindu Tradition. Learn about Diwali and the Hindu culture.
Diwali is called the festival of lights in India. On the third day of Diwali, the festival that marks the end of the Hindu year, Lakshmi is honored. Lakshmi represents good fortune and wealth.
The Rangoli is a sign of welcome. These drawings may be geometric patterns, drawings of Diwa lights (single-flamed lamps), or pictures of symbols. For example, lotus flowers symbolize purity and perfection.
Invite students to research authentic Hindu designs and symbols. These designs traditionally are made with one's fingers using flour, colored sand or chalk, or grains of rice. Organize a variety of text and electronic resources for students to view during this investigation.
Once research is complete, students use Crayola® Colored Art Chalk to outline original Rangoli designs on sandpaper. The sandpaper's texture will make the drawings seem like they are on the ground.
Students color their Rangoli designs. Display designs at the entrance of the classroom, room, or home.
