Divali is one of the biggest Hindu festivals. It is also know as the "Festival of Lights".

This year the festival took place on 26th October.

Divali is a Hindu celebration of good overcoming evil and light overcoming darkness.

Hindus are reminded of this through reading the story of Rama and Sita.

After reading and retelling the story we made puppets of the main characters.

In the story, people lined the streets with diva lamps to celebrate the return of Rama and Sita and to symbolise good conquering evil.

We made our own diva lamps out of clay ...

and then painted them in lovely metallic paints.
