The children replicated the celebrations common in India and Nepal, using paints to create impactful artwork. They also learned about the many legends associated with Holi and why it is such an important festival.

Chia Wallace, Nursery Manager, said: “It’s really important that children understand and appreciate lots of different and diverse cultures. We have children from lots of different countries, and we really enjoy learning about their special days and the traditions that are associated with them.”
