Dussehra crafts – to recreate ramayana

Sharing is caring!

Dussehra crafts

The name Dussehra is derived from Sanskrit Dasha-hara literally means the removal of ten referring to Lord Rama‘s victory over the ten-headed demon king Ravana.

For Day 9 & 10, I have a collection of crafts that are related to the characters from Ramayana.


Make a Kitchen Roll Ravana  like how culturecurry.net shows


You will need:

1 toilet paper roll

2 egg carton cups

Golden coloured craft paper

Black craft paper

White craft paper

White, red & black poster paint.

  1. Make a nice peach colour by mixing some of that white and red paint.
  2. Paint the toilet roll peach (save some peach paint to use later)
  3. Cut the egg carton cups from the edge to make a smaller sized cups and paint the cups white
  4. Paint the nose shape also the peach colour you made earlier
  5. Once your toilet roll is dry, just assemble the Ravan as shown in the picture.
  • Paint black dots on the eggs cartons for the eyes
  • Fold the nose circle into a cone, staple the ends, and stick between the eyes
  • Stick on the eyebrows and moustache
  • Staple the crown on the top edge of the toilet paper
  • Paint a red smile

The Jaipur Craft Kit has some fabulous DIY sets- Puppets &  standees related to Ramayana.

The Ramayana hand puppets are our fav

Make characters from Ramayana using chart papers like how Arthi made them


Or even use Ravana as a decor piece like Arthi 


If making stuff is not your forte.. you can choose to download some colouring sheets from Activity Village

Hamara Nischay also has canvas colouring kits

  1. Nice! I just made some kitchen roll Ravana but that was because I had been wanting to try kitchen roll figures for long! Loved your TP roll Ravana too 🙂 Keep up the good work!
