Mother’s Day

Published May 12, 2016 by tapasmi

Hello! The previous Sunday was Mothers’ Day. Essentially, every day is Mother’s Day- not a day should go by where we don’t appreciate and return all the love she gives us. I made my mother a card- with koalas of course- my current obsession. I feel it really does capture those sleepy afternoons where I snooze on my mum’s back while hugging her. Love you mum ❤

Making Diyas

Published October 17, 2014 by tapasmi

Hi! Today we had a diya-making competition. Diyas are lighted on the day of Indian Festival Deepavali, the Festival Of Lights. Tradition says that the day Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile, everybody lit Diyas, made of earthen material to light up the dark night to celebrate his return. We do various things on this festival and lighting Diyas is a big part. Today at school we had a diya-decorating activity. Here are the pictures of the diya…

The final Diya using red, black, yellow and white paint as well as some types of lentils.
