This is a great craft idea to get the children ready to celebrate the festival of Divali. Simple to do, all you need is:
Making your Mehndi Handprints
- Pour different coloured paints onto paper plates, take a sheet of white card and let the children make clear handprints by either pressing their hands in the plates of paint or get them to paint their hands with a paintbrush.
- When the paint is dry, cut out around the handprints, leaving a border of approx. 1cm.
- Using books or the internet as a source of inspiration, show the children Mehndi patterns and get them to decorate their handprints using thin black felt-tip pens.
