Kids Craft – Diwali S6

Standard

Kids are on fall break and you must be wondering how to keep them occupied, while you are busy with Diwali preparations? Then look no further 🙂

Here is an easy peasy way to make collage Diyas from card stock or scrapbook paper 🙂 Kids will absolutely enjoy making these colorful diya’s and can be used in multiple ways.

So, lets get started :

Step 1: Take a card stock/scrapbook/glitter paper and cut into circles. For each diya you need 3 circles(1 can be a little larger).

Step 3: Glue 3 pieces together to form the base of diya like shown below.

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
