Craft a pretend light to mark the end of the Hindu year-and you'll be ready to celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights.
Diwali is the most widely celebrated festival for Hindus.
Many Hindus start Diwali by lighting a lamp called a Diya. Diya are traditionally made of clay with oil as the fuel and cotton wool as wick. This paper maché Diya is similar.
Tear colorful tissue paper into small squares. Cover your work area with newspaper. Mix equal parts of Crayola® School Glue and water in a recycled plastic container. Use a small plastic cup as a mold. Dip tissue pieces in the glue mixture and overlap them on the cup. Make several layers so your Diya takes on its own shape. Dry between each layer.
Remove the plastic cup from inside your paper maché Diya. Using Crayola Washable Markers, write Hindu symbols on its sides. The symbol pictured is the numeral 5, representing the 5 days of Diwali.
Make a pretend light inside your Diya using red, yellow, and orange tissue paper highlighted with Crayola Glitter Glue. Dry. Glue the light inside your Diya. Dry.
