Navratri is celebrated in different regions of India in different ways. .. In the North West – Esp in the state of Gujrat, Navaratri brings in Garba – or the Dandiya raas. A dance form depicting Lord Krishna’s dance with his gopikas.. Typically danced with 2 wooden dowels/sticks decorated in festive colours. At home too, we decided to decorate our dandiya sticks ..
- Wooden Sticks – 1 pair
- Colourful Glitter tapes – Red, blue, silver, pink
- We bought 2 wooden dowels/sticks from Itsy Bitsy. They cost 2 rs per inch..
- Take the glitter tapes and twist around the sticks in a slant direction. We covered 1/3rd red, 1/3rd blue & 1/3rd Pink. Then we took silver sticker tape and make wide diagonal twists on it.
Wasn’t that easy?? Here’s my Lil Princess in her Garba avatar ready to groove!! We also made a similar one with coloured paper & zari for my article for Women’s Web.. 4 Festive crafts with your kids.
