Christmas crafts - Poinsettia

Christmas time and the children are busy making Christmas tree ornaments, garlands, Santa Claus, angels and not to forget the reindeer!!!! Oh, what about snowflakes?!! Festivals are always celebrated with equal fervour and zeal at our art class, all by the children :) .... ahem.. with a little help of course!

We had made a lot of Christmas ornaments for our Christmas tree and children found them handy to help at school as well!

The fourth and fifth graders could make these gorgeous poinsettias and the others joined in.
Here is how we made the poinsettia decorations:

Enjoy making them!

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!
