Product Description
A fun, easy craft activity for celebrating Diwali (The Festival of Lights).

Follow the instructions to make a diya out of salt dough and leave it to air dry for a few days. Decorate before drying (like the images provided), or dry and then paint/decorate.

MAKING THE DIYA:
Resources to assist with making the diya include:
♦ Teacher notes (with lots of ideas and hints).
♦ Recipe for your students to follow (makes 1 diya).
♦ Sequencing Cards – use as a recipe or as a sequencing task before making. These include pictures and text.

WRITING TASKS:
Two writing tasks are included as a follow-up to the craft activity.
♦ procedural / instructional writing (3 different templates).
♦ newspaper report writing (2 different templates plus an example).

One of the newspaper reports is a fill-in-the-blanks template which is suitable for junior students.

The instructions state to air dry the diya (takes a few days) but you could choose to dry it in the oven to speed up the process (details included in the teacher notes).

WHAT YOU NEED:
Flour, salt and water. Things to decorate it with (buttons, beads, shells, glitter, paint, etc).

If you have junior students, this is a great activity for you to do with a buddy class who are a bit older.
