Holi, the festival of colors is just round the corner and it is one of the most-waited festivals in India. It is a fun festival specially for kids since they can get wet to their heart's desire and play with color with their friends.
Wednesday 20 March
Holi is a Hindu spring festival, originating from the Indian subcontinent, celebrated predominantly in India and Nepal, but has also spread to other areas of Asia and parts of the Western world through the diaspora from the Indian subcontinent, also known as the "festival of colours" or the "festival of love". The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. It is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.
We will be celebrating with colour. Please bring along a white shirt.
We will be having a COLOUR EXPLOSION!!!!
We ask that children bring along a plate of food to share... A celebration is not a celebration without food.
Safety is important to us.... please see the risk management plan we have in place at the centre and answers to some questions you might have below.
What If It Gets In Our Eyes?
We encourage participants to wear sunglasses (not only will everyone look way more cool) but it will greatly reduce the chances of colours in eyes. However, never fear, the colour is non-toxic. A simple rinse with water will take care of you.
Will The Colour Wash Off Skin/Out Of Hair?
Yes! The easiest way to get it off is while it's still dry (shake, wiggle, jump up and down, vacuum, etc). After that, soap and water, with a little rinse and repeat action will do the trick.
Are The Colours Safe?
Our vibrant colors are made up of Corn starch and FD&C and/or D&C colors. Color safety information: Approved for use in foods. These products are natural and not considered hazardous.
