During Diwali, colorful designs called rangoli are often created on the floor of the home, as a warm welcome to the gods and to bring good luck. These vibrant folk-art designs are created with colored sand, powdered rice, flower petals and more. Kids can enjoy making their own sand art on a tray or mat as in this post by Kids Craft Room (see this recipe for making your own colored sand). When the art is finished, add a few battery-operated tealights and snap a picture.
