Holi!

Holi is a spring festival also known as the festival of colours or the festival of love.

It is an ancient Hindu religious festival. Holi celebrations begin the evening before Holi with a bonfire and people gather to sing and dance. The next morning participants play, chase and colour each other with dry powder or coloured water.

I dyed sand into various colours for the mini-explorers so they could make a Rangoli together… and then mush it up!!
