What you will need:

  • Black craft paper
  • Coloured tissue paper (the more colours the better)
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil
  • Scissors


  1. Cut out a large circular shape from the black craft paper - the larger the circle, the bigger the suncatcher.
  2. Fold the circle in half. Once folded, fold in half again. Repeat this one more time so in total, you have folded the circle in half three times.
  3. Use a pencil to draw patterns on the black folded card, use any shape you like! This is a great way for the children to explore the different shapes.
  4. Once you have finished drawing out the pattern, cut the shapes out using your scissors.
  5. Once you have cut out your pattern, open up your rangoli suncatcher.
  6. Use the glue stick to attach small square sections of coloured tissue paper to the shapes on the rangoli.
  7. Once you have filled the cut-out patterns with the tissue paper you are done! You can then hang your rangolis to make a lovely rangoli display to celebrate Diwali.
