Rangoli is an art form from India in which patterns are created on the floor in living rooms or courtyards using materials such as colored rice, dry flour, colored sand or flower petals. It is traditionally done by women. The purpose is decoration. Students color their play sand with food colors and learn the use of hand, cone and strainer to pour the materials into the art form on the table.

The Bhangra dance has traditionally been associated with the spring harvest festival Baisakhi. The beat of the drum and leaping bodies soon make the pulses race, till the onlookers too jump into the ring of dancers and join them. In a typical performance, several dancers execute vigorous kicks, leaps, and bends of the body to the accompaniment of short folk songs which are small couplets written in the Punjabi language called boliyan.
