Diya Painting for Diwali

Diwali is just around the corner and one week to go! How are the preparations going on?
How to involve kids in festive celebrations? Here is my old post on that.

I suppose, many of you have bought or going to buy colourful Diyas made with clay. Colourful diyas with decorations are available in market everywhere, though they are quite expensive this year. So, why can't we buy plain clay diyas and make kids paint on them? This is one way to make kids engaged and also learn about the festival and wait, fun time for both kids and us right?

I have to admit that I am not a very creative person and not very good at creating my own designs to paint diyas. So, I searched on Pinterest, Google and YouTube for simple diya paintings that my 4 year old son can do with my help. Here is what we have come up with :-)

We used basic oil paints for these and only basic colours like green, red, blue and yellow. Since we learnt something now, I am thinking to buy more colours and try different combinations.

Cheers and have a happy festive week ahead :-)

Pin it for later!

Until next time,
