Holi Bonfire Card

Holi is a popular festival in India. It celebrates the end of the winter season and the arrival of spring.

Holika Dahan (Bonfire) is an important ritual associated with the Holi festival. Holika Dahan or the lighting of the bonfire takes place on the eve of Holi. People gather and perform religious rituals in front of the bonfire.

According to Hindu mythology, Holi celebrates the killing of Holika (sister of the demon king Hiranyakashipu) by god Vishnu in order to save his devotee Prahlad. And, Holi gets its name from Holika.

To educate my daughter about this ritual, we made this cute bonfire craft for kids.

These days, we are reading Curious George books. This series of books tells the story of a monkey called George who is very curious and his adventures with the Man with the Yellow Hat. All the stories are wonderful and never fail to amuse my daughter. She is becoming quite a fan of little George. We are always looking out for Curious George books on every library visit. So far we have read Curious George goes campingCurious George learns the alphabetCurious George Flies a Kite, Curious George Librarian for a Day, Curious George Dance Party, and Curious George in the Snow.

Just in time for Christmas, we found this lovely book “Merry Christmas Curious George”. It’s a story about how excited and curious George helps the man with the yellow hat pick out the holiday tree and then does a fun decoration with the kids at Tree Decorating Party in the hospital.


Inspired by the book, I asked my daughter - Do you want to have a tree decorating party? Yeah, she said. This gave me an idea to make Christmas tree ornaments for the fun 10 days of Kid-Made Christmas series we are participating in. To add extra fun, we used aluminum foil for making these trees.
