Diwali at Active Explorers Mayfair

What a fun day we had celebrating Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights on October 22! 

The week before, children in the Over 2s room created lantern decorations, ready for the day, and children in the Nurtured room learnt about Diwali.  On the day, children and teachers alike enjoyed dressing up in traditional Indian costumes, dancing to traditional Indian music and watching traditional Indian dancing on YouTube. 

Both our cook (Nicole) and administrator (Deesha) cooked a delicious chickpea curry and rice for everyone for lunch, which the children absolutely loved!  Later in the afternoon Deesha also created some beautiful Henna art on teachers’ hands.

“A fun day was had by all celebrating our Indian cultures here at Active Explorers Mayfair,” says centre manager Selina Hargreaves.
