Brown bear pencil holder

To make brown bear pencil holder, we need:
  1. Empty cardboard rolls (toilet paper rolls) and a cardboard sheet (use waste cardboard if possible)
  2. Googly eyes or white paper cut out with little black dots for eyes using a marker or small black paper. Cut out another white paper oval for the mouth and a black oval for nose.
  3. Cut out longish semi circles for ears with tiny pink inner bits
  4. Small strip of colored paper  for collar and a crescent shape for the smile
  5. Cut 2 circle bits of crepe paper for the brooch on the collar
  6. Few crumpled bits of crepe paper in any color 
  7. Brown / burnt sienna poster paint for painting the face
  8. Craft glue or pva glue (Fevicol in India)
Make similar style cut outs for other animals like puppy, cat, panda, monkey, tiger, lion etc
Painted surfaces can be painted with a coat of 50/50 pva/water mix for the glossy finish.

Enjoy making stuff!

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example. The making of the Colosseum model using cardboard and paints.

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!
