At Vesak it is traditional to decorate bodhi leaves with colourful paint and hang them up on display. Many are painted with small pictures of Buddha, which is where the inspiration for our Buddha colouring page comes from. Why not print out one of our bodhi leaf templates for your child to decorate? Or make a stack of them and hang them up as a banner...
Bodhi Leaf Template
You can use this Buddha frame for writing activities, printing it out onto white paper or coloured as you prefer. It also makes a useful template and would look lovely with gold or silver paper.
Use this thistle template for our thistle crafts - or with your own ideas. One simple idea to use the template: children could colour in the leaves and then scrunch up tissue paper to make the stem and flower.
