Cut and paste - Butterflies

Activity for pre-schoolers and primary school children. Children below five years may need help in cutting. Watch the children as they create their own versions of this craft. My children enjoyed making these last week and we had an amazing collection of gorgeous butterflies on display!

Waste paper - scribbled or smudgy ones. The ones as shown above can be used straight away!

The gaps can be painted with various colors. Make them as colorful as you like. Fold the paper and cut them into bits of the required size.

Cut out the shapes for wings, head, one longish bit for the body (thorax and abdomen as one piece)
two long thin bits for the antennae.

Stick them all together to make these lovely colorful butterflies. Create more butterflies and share them with us on  facebook  or send us a link to your website.
Enjoy the colorful creations!

Durga Puja and Dussehra

Happy Durga Puja and Dussehra to all!
For all our readers who love madhubani art, here is our Goddess Durga in madhubani style of painting.

As the children delve into the interesting Dussehra and Durga Puja activities, here are some of the activities we enjoyed doing during the festive break.
Easy drawing and coloring/ painting Goddess Durga and Ravana. Making a shield and sword using cardboard.Making bow and arrows using cardboard and paper.Learning to make Rangolis. It was pretty easy to draw 'Ravana' with his ten heads. We first made a large 'U' added ears to it and continued till we counted ten heads. Adding the crown and the details on the face completes the heads. Then make the body and the flames and it is time for some colouring.
Now for some artworks created by 5 to 9 year olds during this session.

Have fun this festive season and enjoy creating!
