We call it “Gulak” in hindi. One of my favorite gifts as a child. Every Diwali we use to get a new one and for the whole year we would be adding coins to it, to finally break it on the next Diwali. There are piggy banks made out of mud which are available on the road sides. But now a days more modernized forms of piggy banks are also available. You can go with either a tradition or the modern electronic piggy banks, or you can also stay in between with the metal piggy banks.
The original piggy bank we use to use when we were kids.
Gift them a small plant. Tell them it is their plant and they will have to take care of it. Teach them how to take care. This will help in developing a sense of responsibility, emotional attachment and increase their curiosity. You can buy a plant from the nursery and also take them along to choose.
Yes crackers are not good for our environment, but also Diwali means lights and crackers. Do not go into big crackers, that pollute too much. Instead just buy small crackers that has more light than sound and pollution. Explain the child the safety rules before giving the crackers. Supervise them all the time when they are bursting the crackers.
Gifting someone is a happy feeling, and when it comes to kids, it doubles the joy. It feels wonderful to see the spark in their eyes. So, this Diwali buy something unique and beautiful for your child and make it their best Diwali ever.
