Rangoli made on newspaper!

We came up with this interesting idea of creating 'Rangoli' using newspaper. It is easy to make and use.
Supplies required: Newspaper, scissors, poster/ acrylic paints, PVA glue, glossy, metallic and colourful paper cutouts.

Here are some of our 'Rangolis' made today!

Here is how we cut the newspaper:

 The folds help the children to align and create their own patterns.We used poster paints, mostly dark colors to cover the text. Keeping the paint slightly thick also helps to cover the text easily. Pasting cutouts of colored or shiny paper with or without textures, enhances the design and gives it a festive look! Finally the 'Rangoli' design can be placed on the floor and decorated with diyas around it!
We are working on more designs with lots of festive cheer and excitement.
Hope you enjoyed our pattern making!

Happy creating!

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.

I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!


Easy step by step drawings are always a favorite in my class. Since we chose tailor bird this week I needed to present a step by step instruction as well.

So here we are with 'a not a very easy step by step drawing', according to my 1st graders :)
And a few photos of the common tailor birds  visiting our yard.

Such cute birds aren't they :)

Below are artworks made by the children:

Well, I'm sure we'll post more tailor bird artworks shortly as I see them coming...

Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
