Holi celebrations have begun in many parts of the country today, and our B-Town celebs are leaving no stone unturned in celebrating the festival of colours with their family and friends. Many celebrity parents, including Kareena Kapoor Khan and Soha Ali Khan, shared glimpses from their Holi celebrations and showed how their kids were enjoying a super-fun and happy Holi.

While Bebo was seen enjoying the day with full fervour along with her sons Taimur and Jeh, Soha indulged in Holi festivities in the company of her close friends, such as actor and mum Neha Dhupia and her husband.

Read on, as we give you more deets on Holi celebrations from B-Town and how the celeb parents arranged for a safe and memorable Holi party for their kids.

Happy Holi: A Glimpse Into Kapoor Khan’s Fab Holi Session

The Kapoor clan’s Holi celebrations used to be legendary, and now mum-of-two Kareena is keeping those traditions alive by hosting a fun celebration for her kids. 

Bebo recently shared a series of pictures from her Holi celebrations, where she and her kids, Taimur and Jeh can be seen drenched in colour from head to toe. Both Taimur and Jeh are holding pichkaris in the photos and can be seen having a blast splashing coloured water on others.

Kareena captioned the picture saying, “Can’t wait for the nap that we are going to have post this fab #holi session (miss you Saifuuu)…Spreading colour, love, and joy to all…Love you Insta fam, Happy Holi!”

Instead of a large Holi party, Kareena opted for a gathering with only her close ones, so she can better supervise her kids, and also make the best memories.

Stay with Your Child

While your child is busy enjoying Holi festivities with their friends, make sure to stay with them, or request someone in your family to supervise them. It’s possible for your kid to mistakenly swallow colours, or get colour in their eyes. To prevent these situations and accidents, keep a close watch on them.

Encourage Your Child to Avoid Water Balloons

Water balloons definitely level up the fun of Holi, but you cannot ignore its drawbacks. If the water balloon is thrown harshly at someone, they may experience pain and bruising.

Hence, it’s better to stick with pichkaris for all the water and splashing fun and avoid water balloons in your Holi festivities. If you’ve arranged for a Holi party at your home, ensure that your guests are aware that water balloons are not allowed.

Avoid Synthetic Colours

Avoid purchasing synthetic colours for your child. Look for eco-friendly colours instead that are gentle on your child’s skin and non-irritating. You can also try making Holi colours at home with ingredients that are readily available in your kitchen, such as turmeric, sandalwood, henna, and marigold flowers. Natural colours prevent the risk of skin irritation in your child, and they are also easy to wash off.

Remember, SPF Is a Must

Besides dressing your child in airy and comfortable clothes, ensure to apply sunscreen on the exposed parts of their body. Your kid is going to be under the sun for long hours, and you do not want their skin to be affected by the sun’s harsh rays and pollution.

Opt for a natural sunscreen, such as BabyChakra’s moisturising sunscreen, which contains botanical ingredients like carrot seed oil and rosehip oil that protect your child’s skin against free radical damage and prevent rashes caused due to long-term exposure to the sun. 

Keep Your Child Hydrated and Well-fed

Once your kid meets their friends, chances are they are going to run around the entire day, throwing colours at each other and playing with their pichkaris. Due to all the excitement, your kid may forget to drink water and eat food on time, which can further lead to dehydration.

So, do ensure to keep a close eye on your little one, and see that they have regular sips of water throughout the day. Since there is going to be a lot of jumping and running around, you can consider giving your child fresh fruit juices or coconut water to level up their hydration and energise them. Also, prepare some delicious and healthy Holi munchies that the little ones can nibble on while playing.


We love how the B-Town mums Kareena and Soha are candid about their Holi celebrations and all the madness behind it! To ensure that your child has a safe and happy Holi, follow the tips that we have discussed above and practice all safety measures to avoid any kind of accidents. 

While safety considerations are crucial, don’t forget to enjoy yourself and make happy memories along with your child and other family members. Happy Holi everyone!
