Last week, South Asians across the world celebrated Diwali, the Indian festival of lights. I didn’t get to visit my parents to celebrate, unfortunately, so I sent them the next best thing–a homemade card.
For this card I used bright red and yellow pieces of construction paper, and orange tissue paper for the flames on the candle.
Diwali is one of my favorite Holidays because it asks us to seek light over darkness and to always have hope. May your year be filled with light and love.
Happy Halloween! Today I’m sharing with you the Halloween cards and presents I made for my three nephews, ages 18 months, 23 months, and 8 years.
These cards were made using bright pieces of orange, yellow and black construction paper, and Halloween embellishments, including stickers and decorative pumpkins.
The pumpkin pails include age appropriate gifts, super hero shirts with capes and light up balls for the baby boys, and a Frankenstein chapter book and Lego set for older brother.
The cards really tied the gifts all together, as you see.
I wish you a delightfully frightful night of Trick-or-Treating!
