Rangoli Colouring Pages
Here is a simple way to create your own rangoli design - using one of our rangoli colouring pages! Use felt tips, crayons or pencils for some traditional colouring fun, or paint the sections in white glue and use glitter, coloured salt, sand or rice to pick out areas of your rangoli! Teachers could make a beautiful classroom display by cutting out the finished rangoli and mounting side-by-side on the wall.
