THIS IS THE EASY AND INEXPENSIVE HOLI CRAFT FOR KIDS TO MAKE WITH COLORED RANGOLI POWDER.
Holi is a festival of colors from India. People get together to celebrate the arrival of spring, victory of good over evil. It is celebrated on the full moon day. People celebrate with music, dance and putting dry or wet colors on each other. Here is the small festive Holi craft for kids to make with lot of fun colors.
Rangoli is a very intricate art form from India created on floors using various materials such as colored flours or sand, flowers and chalk.
My daughter is obsessed with rainbows, there is nothing better than Holi to celebrate with all the colors of the rainbow! I have made many different kind of rangolis over the years during many Indian festivals. This is the one thing I fondly remember and miss doing it here. Back in India, most of the houses have tiles, marble or red oxide flooring. This serves as the perfect canvas for rangolis. As a way to introduce this form of art which can also be fun for my daughter, I thought of using her toy accessories to make this rangoli. Here is a simple method to introduce rangoli to kids.

MATERIALS FOR HOLI CRAFT FOR KIDS TO MAKE RANGOLI
- Rangoli powder (colored powder)
- Play dough accessories or cookie cutters
- Small squeeze bottles
These are the only things you need to make this awesome craft! Oh yes and a lot of patience 🙂
HOW TO MAKE THE RAINBOW RANGOLI
- Sort the colors in these small squeeze bottles. I made a bigger hole in the bottles for easy use. These bottles helps a lot to contain the mess!
- I prefer to keep the surface where we are going to make the rangoli a little damp (wipe it with wet paper towel), rangoli stays better without spreading too much.
- Place the accessories and start filling it with colors. Make whatever designs you like!
If you are planning to play with colors with your kids, I highly recommend making your own powder (rangoli powder is different than the ones used for playing during Holi). Here and here are the links for some home made colored powders.
Play safe and Happy Holi!
