Christmas crafts - Angel tree ornament

We made this pretty angel craft using  left over paper, butter paper ( paper and butter paper from old sketch books) , washable paints, glue, bits of gift wrapping paper for the booklet and a few embellishments.

We cut out various painted portions of the papers to make the hands and cylinders for the body. The head required drawing and colouring before cutting it out. We also tried sticking a few strands of brown or black wool or embroidery thread bits for hair.
The butter paper looked good for the wings, especially after we added those little embellishments!

They looked lovely on our Christmas tree!

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!
