I was thrilled when Sofia's mom volunteered to come in and teach the children about Diwali! 
Sofia's dad is from India and her grandparents live there now. 

During Missy's visit she and Sofia shared many great facts about their special celebration of lights. 
We loved the book about Diwali traditions!

We sampled a sweet treat called jalebi.

The children also enjoyed making rangoli - a special decorative art made with colored sand. 

Missy and Sofia, thank you so much for sharing your traditions with us!
