Earth Day Festival of Colors

This weekend was a super busy one for our family.

If you're following Little Hiccups on Instagram and saw my stories this weekend you would've seen why. We had Cal Day (UC Berkeley's super fun and family friendly open day), a friend's birthday party, and an Earth Day Festival of Colors today at Ava and Lola's school. I'm exhausted just thinking about it all!

I have a lot of photos from the weekend to share, so let's start with the Earth Day Festival of Colors...


This was the third year that our school has held this particular event and it's always a lot of fun. The festival is based on the Indian Spring festival Holi and features yummy Indian food, a pedal powered mango lassi station, henna tattoos, making wildflower seed bombs, lots of fun Bollywood music, and Indian dancers. The highlight of the day is when all the kids, and the adults, get to throw colored powder at each other. It's so much fun!

You know I took a ton of photos, right? Of course I did! Let's have a look at how nice and clean the girls were before it all started.


And then just moments later... Bam! An explosion of color and laughter filled the school yard.


After everyone was well an truly covered with colored powder (apart from Lola whose t-shirt somehow stayed white) we took a break from the color fun and moved onto some other activities. Ava and Lola made delicious pedal powered mango lassis and all three girls made wildflower seeds bombs with clay, soil and seeds. We also decorated the school yard with chalk drawings.


After a little while it was round two with the colored powder. Prepare for lots more photos.


As you can see, the girls had an absolute blast at the festival today. It was such a fun celebration and definitely one they'll remember for a long time.

Have you ever been to a Festival of Colors before? Or maybe taken part in something like the Color Run? It's so much fun to play with the colored powder.
