We as a family have always loved getting into the spirit of Diwali and nothing bring joys to kids than stickers. Our twins have loved peeling these stickers (and sticking them in places we wish they wouldn't :( ) but they are nonetheless a fun way to get kids engaged to get them excited about Diwali and get them to know the 5 different days of Diwali.
