Hey…! It’s Diwali! Ashrith’s been receiving Halloween goody bags from classmates. So,it made me think why not Diwali goody bags for his classmates. Diwali, is our biggest festival and it is sad that most of our American friends are unaware of it . I thought it will help to introduce Diwali to Ashrith and his classmates. With the ear infection gone after antibiotics , I am feeling much better .What I needed was a little planning and lots of shopping .These treat /goody bags are perfect if you are hosting Diwali party or Potluck Party too.
Ziploc Bags /Treat bags
Tea light candles/clay diyas
Printable Diya coloring sheet below
Printable Diwali Wishes Message below
Kid Snack (Healthy one)
Kid toy or Stationery
Printable coloring sheet and Wishes: In Diwali wishes message, wrote a little intro on Diwali and If you live in India , you might want to exclude it . I have sized them to 2 pics in A4 size paper to fit in the Ziploc bag.
Make your own Diwali tags and Decorate Diwali Gift bags : For Ashrith’s class teacher we packed a big candle in a gift bag and tied a tag … remember the fireworks art tag we made few days back. We are so much in love with the fireworks art prints that ,used it to make a diya cutout to decorate Mrs.H’ gift bag too.
The true magic of the festival is spending time with family and friends and celebrating the things we believe in. Please do comment on if you like to make Diwali goody bags for your kids? Your emails, comments and Facebook likes are incredibly important feedback for me to continue writing.
Wishing you all a very Happy , Healthy, Wealthy Deepavali or Diwali!
