Learning about Holi, a Hindu Festival

Communications

Holi is a major Hindu festival that celebrates the Hindu story of Prahlada and the start of spring, and in 2022, it fell on Friday, 18 March. Students in Lower Elementary watched a video about the history of Holi and then listened to traditional music while making mandalas on transparency paper. After creating their mandalas, they used to paint in spray bottles to represent the colorful powder usually used on the day of Holi. This process created very colorful backgrounds for the striking black mandalas. Here are some finished projects!
