Happy Holi to everyone celebrating today!
Have you ever felt like there was a group of people your heart connected with so deeply and completely warmed your soul? For me, I’m so fortunate to have lifelong friendships with some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and their ancestries all originate from India.
I not only have a deep love for these beautiful souls, I also really love their cuisine too! I can vividly recall the feeling of eating Indian food for the first time, I was immediately fascinated and fell in love with the ingredients, spices and recipes used.
I will always hold these friendships close to my heart. They bring me so much happiness and just like the colours of the rainbow—they are all so beautiful and bright!!
What is Holi you ask?
“The festival of colours, Holi, is the most vibrant of all Hindu festivals. It marks the end of winter in India and welcomes the spring season. On this festive day, people play with colours, meet and greet one another and create new beginnings.” - Richa Jain
In celebration of Holi, I thought I would share with you a fun activity you can do with children. The Rainbow of Colours Hunt can be done inside or outside...
For inside, kids can collect and create piles of items for each colour. When Abby did this activity, I placed coloured construction paper on the floor and she added her items to the corresponding colour.
For outside, you can you write down the colours on a piece of paper and stroll the streets, marking down the colourful objects you find along the way.
I hope you all enjoy this bright and colourful day!
