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!

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!


Children have been exploring 'Madhubani' painting and drawing techniques during the September and October sessions and have come up with some excellent artworks. Here are a few of them and more in the making....

Enjoy creating them and share with us!
