A Rangoli is a bright and colourful design usually made on the floor near the entrance to a house to welcome guests. At Diwali, Hindus draw bright Rangoli patterns to encourage the goddess Lakshmi to enter their homes. This fun activity is from a lovely parent and toddler group my son attends each week. This week the craft and cooking activity were based on the Diwali celebrations which will take place this weekend.
