So with the use of simple tools that are readily available in our homes we can make beautiful rangoli designs through simple ideas.
The only important point here to be observed is the chance of allergy of rangoli colours particularly for kids , if available organic colours can be used. Other wise it an easy and fun filled activity.
Arrange plastic spoons in a circular pattern as shown in the first image.
Draw contours of rose buds along the bowl of the spoons , I have used pink to match with the designs we can use white also.
After drawing the shapes using the bowls , place a dot at the centre to mark it for the purpose of symmetry and gently remove the spoons.
After removing all the spoons , the pattern looks like the one shown in the photo below. Draw a simple spiral in white to denote rose buds.
Along the base of the rose buds place big green dots ( after all the calyx of a flower is green , through this method we can also give an idea of the parts of a flower to the kids.
The dot placed at the centre , I have used pink to match with the roses , we can use any other contrasting colour also, using cotton buds is extended on as many sides as possible. or it can be converted into a floral pattern also
At the base of the calyx , yellow dots are placed using yellow rangoli colours and then they are gently pressed or flattened with the index finger. Yellow may be thought of to represent the pollen grains !
Using cotton buds the outline of the flower ( rose bud ) is redrawn to enhance the effect of the rangoli
Add lines connecting the spirals and the base of rose buds , two at the bottom left are shown with these lines drawn. This will give a more realistic appearance to the rose buds.
Place the rangoli colours in the holes in the centre of the CD
Fill the gaps with blue colours . After completion gently remove the CDs
Rubber bands of almost similar shape that resemble the petals of a flower are used at the centre as shown in the image below, the inside of the rubber band is filled with colours.
Gently remove the rubber bands so that the rangoli colours do not get smudged.
Now place four petals on four sides of the yellow dots to form floral designs, again using rubber bands as shown in the photo below
Remove the rubber bands gently after filling colours
Using cotton buds form patterns on the petals
The rangoli after completion , of course after forming the basic design other decorations are left to one's own imagination.
