How was your pongal/sankaranthi? Mine was good this time as I celebrate both, for people who dont know; Shankanthi or Pongal is a harvest festival which is devoted to the Sun God.
There was an interesting pooja for my kido that was performed by my inlaws, I wanted to share the procedure with you guys. If you have girl kids, do perform this pooja till they turn 5. Its performed to ward off evils.
Your little one will love the attention. Added advantage !!!
Make ornaments using sugar candy that you get during Shankaranthi. Just pass a hot needle through these sugar beads and make a chain, bangles, earrings. etc. Make your little girl wear it.
<Im so sorry I didnt take pictures this time too. I found nice pictures here:>
Then take a big tray add small pieces of sugar cane, sesame seeds, chocolates, puffed rice and mix. You can add nuts and any sort of sweets to it.
Now take a measure cup (the one you use for rice) and fill it with this mixture and shower the mixture on your baby’s head. Make her stand on a mat so that you can collect this later.
Do this 3 times. Its totally fine of your LO starts nibbling all the stuff.
Now distribute this mixture to 5 kids.
