Recycling tree activity - Nature tree

Lots has been added and the tree looks happy with so much happening on it! Sharing a few steps that might help in creating one for a classroom or home school activity.

I got this huge cardboard box when I purchased a bookshelf and was struck by this idea since then!!!

It is simple to cut out the shape after drawing the tree trunk and the branches. Take care while cutting the narrow portions or use sticky tape to bind the accidentally cut portions and secure them in place.

















Since I wanted it in the corner of the room I let the bottom portion remain folded to support the whole thing.

















Stick the tips of the branches with a double sided tape to keep them in place.


































It was funny to find the spiders move from the soft board on to the tree so quickly!!!


































:)) And now we do not want to part with it!!!! This is how it looks today! Gorgeous isn't it!

Enjoy creating!

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!
