Celebrating Diwali with kids

                                                   

 Diwali is the festival of lights, a major festival of all Indians. Whether living in India or in a foreign country, Indians remember their traditions and celebrate Diwali with same enthusiasm and gaiety. This time around when you indulge in fun, flavor and feast along with friends and relatives, give quality time to your kids so that they can carry forward the same culture with equal pride and zest.


Shopping spree with kids

Take along your kids while shopping for Diwali puja and celebrations. Buy diyas, candles, and statues of Indian Gods and decoration materials while discussing different aspects of the festival with kids. They would come to know more about their culture and would definitely love to get involved in the Diwali preparations.

Making own diyas and candles

                                                  

Encourage kids to paint diyas and decorate candles at home. Provide then enough of craft materials and get involved with them in the process.

Colorful Rangoli

                                    
Make a colorful rangoli with colors and/or flowers. Take ideas from your kids. In fact, ask them to join you in making Rangoli. You may also add diyas/ candles in your rangoli for further adornment.


Kids deserve special gifts on such a special festival. You can surprise them with interesting gifts or you can let them shop for themselves.

Indian recipes and sweets

                                           
Diwali is incomplete without special Indian recipes and sweets. Prepare some special dishes and sweets or you may also order some of them from a reputed sweets shop.

Diwali puja

Encourage kids to participate in puja preparations and show them how the puja of Goddess Laxmi is carried out. Inform them about the importance of this puja and it would be a good idea to teach kids patiently about the importance of festivals.

Diwali party

Holding a Diwali party is common. But in your celebrations take care on ways to entertain kids so that they do not feel left out. You can simply download some printable games like bingo, etc to keep them happily occupied.

Fireworks

Diwali is incomplete without crackers and fireworks but do not allow kids to fire crackers alone and make sure they are appropriately dressed. It would be a noble idea to persuade kids to restrict use of crackers to save environment. Instead they can donate some money/ clothes / gifts to underprivileged kids.

Kids living abroad

Get connected to your kids, whether young or adults, on the festival of Diwali. This is the time to reunite with everyone even if it means sending greeting cards and photos to them via internet. You can share videos of Diwali through social networking sites.

Moreover, it is now easy to send Diwali sweets and gifts quickly to them through a reputed online company.


Hope these ideas would make this Diwali more special for you and your kids. Wishing  all of you a very happy and prosperous Diwali!

Gift Ideas for kids


Any occasion or festival is incomplete without gifts. At such times, kids expect interesting gifts from their elders. If you are going to buy a gift for your own child, nephew or niece and do not know what to choose then peruse the following tips and then you are likely to choose an appropriate gift.


Age appropriate gifts


Personalized Wooden Shape Sorter

The gift chosen should be according to the age group of the child. Giving a Harry Potter novel to a five year old is useless. Specifically ask for gifts that suit the age of the child. The taste and needs of small kids is different from that of teenagers. You would love it when your nephew or niece would enjoy the gifts given by you.

Keep the gender in mind

Invest in gender specific gifts. Boys love racing cars, remote operated toys, machines, etc while girls generally love dolls, stuff toys, craft kits and so on. There are some gifts that boys and girls love alike such as music CDs, children books, photo memory books, mugs, alarm clock, stationery items, board games, etc.


Personalized Shape Sorting Clock - $15.95

This fun and educational personalized solid wood shape sorting clock is the perfect gift for the children in your life. Simply place the colorful numbered shape pieces in their proper places on the face of the clock, and move the hour and minute hands to make learning to tell time fun. 9" diameter clock with a solid wood easel-type base to rest angled on the floor or table. Guaranteed to provide hours of learning fun!

Consider the personality of the kid

If you know the kid very well then consider the personality while buying a gift for him or her. For example, buying a cricket kit/ football for an athletic boy is ideal. On the other hand, you may buy a piano or a set of audio CDs for a music lover child depending upon your budget.

Consult your child before purchasing

Your daughter or son can very well guide you for deciding the gift if you wish to buy for her or his friends as the tastes and preferences of similar age children are same most of the times.

Personalized gifts

 
Personalized Photo Mug

from: Happy Kids Productions, Inc.


Get your gift personalized. You can get the name and/or photo of the child imprinted on the gift. It does not cost much but the positive reception coming from the child will be immense. For instance a photo mug has a photo of the child over the mug that delights him or her for a long time.

Determine your budget first

Find out how much you are ready to spend for the gift. It also depends upon the occasion as well as on the kind of relation you have with the child. While buying a birthday gift for a kid you would like to spend on an expensive item like piano, riding toys, clothes or similar things but for giving party favors you may choose any stationery item, small toys, candy bags, sipper cups, etc that may come under $10.

Buy gifts for siblings as well

If you have bought a gift for birthday girl or boy then remember to buy small gifts for the siblings as well such as economical tote bags, wallet, key chains, pot holders, pencil case, etc.



Personalized Photo Key Chain


By this way, you will surely become the favorite aunt or uncle of the kids who bring nice gifts for all no matter how little these gifts are.

Gift for your child

Be innovative while choosing gifts for your children. You know their room is stuffed with plenty of toys and board games. So there is no point in buying similar things. Instead search for some unique gifts for them like decorative items for their room such as wall stickers, plush pillows and much more.

In case you need gifts for number of children of same age then you can buy same gifts in different colors in advance for upcoming occasions or parties.
