Our November 2016 International Doll of the Month represents India.
We celebrated Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights, and learned about the origins of the festival and how Indians celebrate Diwali around the world. We created beautiful Rangoli designs outside. Traditionally, Rangoli patterns are made using flower petals, rice, and other natural ingredients.
We also decorated diyas – small candles that illuminate homes to bring blessings of good fortune and wealth – and threw a Bollywood dance party. We even tried India’s famous Parle-G biscuits and delicious Indian sweets!
