Cardboard tube puppets

We collect long cardboard tubes found with cling foil or aluminium foil along with most 'Art class collectibles'- reusable trash :)
Here we share some of our recent creations 'Puppets made of long cardboard tubes'! I found it to be an interesting activity for 5 to 7 year olds. Please take a look at these lovely puppets and create some if you like them!

They can be easily lined up to stand without support.

 Use colored paper, paper scraps, paints to dress them up! Let the children create on their own. These puppets were created by children 5 to 7 years.

If cardboard tubes are not available, make some with waste cartridge paper or any card stock. The last tube in the picture above was made of waste paper and it looks and feels almost the same.

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!
