Diwali Art : Teaching Kids to Draw Diya

Life can be a tough sometimes…..I had a runny nose , sore throat,sinus pain etc since last ten days but the worst is the ear infection. First time, I am experiencing this kind of pain in ear and thank God(..and Antibiotics), I’m starting to feel better but …not able to hear that well yet.
All this illness, I couldn’t make time for 5 year old son but Today, after a long time we spend time sketching and coloring. He loves art and teaching him is so much fun. I am sharing what I taught him today i.e.. How to draw a Diya ? Diwali festival is ..coming soon and I have few easy ways to celebrate the festival with more creativity and quality family time.When I taught art in India ,I used to follow a book by Navneet Publications, don’t remember the name but this diya drawing was inspired from their book with a little personal added steps.
