Make a Diwali Diya

What You Need

  • Newspaper
  • Tea light candle and match or electric candle
  • Moldable clay
  • Paint (optional)
  • Paintbrushes (optional)
  • Glitter glue and other decorative material (optional)

What You Do

  1. Place newspaper on your workspace to make cleaning easy.
  2. Take moldable clay and help your child form a bowl big enough to hold the candle steadily.
  3. Depending on what type of clay you use, bake the bowl or let it air dry so that it is hard.
  4. Place a candle inside the bowl. If you are using a match, remind your child to be careful.
  5. Light the candle, and celebrate Diwali and good fortune in your household!

If your child wants to decorate the bowl, help your child paint and put glitter on the dried bowl to make it stand out in your home.
