Holi, Holi!    
                              Mar/Apr 2012    
Nothing ushers in Holi (and springtime) like color and crafts.  All last week, we featured Holi crafts on the Blog - fun with paper, glue, glitter and even dhal.  Check out our ideas - and create some of your own.
However you can, involve your kids with Holi.  Check with your local temple or Eknazar listings or stage a casual gathering in your backyard.  The elation, the messiness and the display of color, community and friendship:  there's nothing like it in the world! 
Happy Holi!  
 Holi Letter Displays

H-O-L-I spells fun with color!  We used wooden letters purchased from a craft store and decorated them with paint and splashes of glitter, but you can cut-out your own letters by recycling cardboard shipping or cereal boxes.  Better yet, spell “Holi” in your own language.

Perfect to display on your fireplace mantel, bookcase or tabletop – as a reminder to get in the Holi mood! Just one of the projects we featured as part of our Holi Craft Week.  Read More...
