Diwali Rangoli

Get ready to celebrate Diwali with our FREE Rangoli colouring in sheet!

Diwali is known as the Festival Of Lights and is one of the most well-known festivals celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and some Buddhists. Diwali - also known as Deepavali and Divali - generally lasts five days and is celebrated during the Hindu lunisolar month Kartika (mid-October-mid-November).

During Diwali, women and children will decorate their homes with diyas (oil lamps) and rangolis (colourful art patterns made from rice flour, coloured rice/sand and flower petals). Boys and men also decorate soaces using string lights and lanterns.

  • Step 1Print out the Rangoli Colouring Sheet by clicking the 'Download Template' button. We recommend you print onto cover paper - this will provide a great surface for decorating.
  • Step 2Use markers, pencils or paint to add bright colours to the Rangoli. Allow to dry if needed.
  • Step 3Cut out your Rangoli. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors. Your Rangoli is now ready to display in your home or classroom for Diwali!
