Bring in the Colour

Happy Holi-Day!
If kids had their say, every holiday would be a Holi-Day!  When else are you permitted to get so messy in the name of cultural fun?
Whether or not you are able to attend an official Holi function, or able to host one in your backyard, make sure to acknowledge the spirit of this holiday in some way.  Let the kids get creative with paints and colours, make colourful treats and push the boundaries of fun.  If they're old enough, tell them the story of Holi.
Keep it light and fun!
**Speaking of stories, Disney contacted us regarding their Pitchkiaow Story Contest.  They are looking for original, Indian-themed stories that will appeal to children wordwide.  So if you or someone you know has a story to tell, make sure to get your submission in.  Read More...
