We're always putting "Our Own Spin on Things" at our house and this was my inspiration, an adorable Valentine Paper Bag Book from Rosy Posy.
For our Hindi Paper Bag Color Book we grabbed our supplies
5 Paper Bags
To create the book we cut off the bottom of the paper bags to create more openings and also to create our containers to sort our hearts into. Then we stapled the book together and covered with a Valentine Napkin that we had around the house.
Next step was to cut the Hindi words and glue them on to the book and attach the English Words onto the Hearts. We also glued the Hindi and English words onto the Paper Bag Containers for sorting colors.
We've linked it up to the Paper Bag Challenge at Tinker Labs and would love your like on Pinterest to help us WIN ! Here's our Pin http://pinterest.com/pin/111816003218190493/ . You can check out all the other projects and get inspired too!

Found this article about Color in India while searching for Hindi Colors and thought I'd share. I can't wait to celebrate Holi soon with our family and friends!
India is a land of colors. A multitude of colors can be seen in the terrain, the sky, the water, and the culture of the people. In fact, a full festival, the festival of Holi, dedicated to color, is celebrated in the month of March every year. Everyone is covered with color, irrespective of their age and status. A lot of meaning is attached to color in India. In fact even the days of the week have their preferred colors. White clothes are recommended for Monday, Orange for Tuesday, Green for Wednesday, Yellow for Thursday, Red for Friday and Black for Saturday. Red is the color of the bride and the state of being married. Married women can normally be seen with a red dot (bindi) on their forehead. White represents purity, Orange is the color of saints, Green is the color of prosperity. People in India love color. Color is used effectively to represent various moods and emotions.
Hope you have fun creating your own Paper Bag Color Book. I think we might be creating this Paper Bag Book next from Imagination Soup who used her paper bag book to paint, write a story and learn how to draw mermaids and fairies.
We'd love to see what language you create with your Paper Bag Color Book with your Bilingual Babies!
