Handmade card for New Year

Happy faces, sunny smiles, butterflies and flowers, good wishes and a little gift! What if a card can bring us all that and more...!! The 10 - 12 year old children enjoyed the activity.

We have decided to share the card that we all loved so much!

 Card stock- one for the main card and a small square one for the sun. Card stock scrap for the stems, flowers, butterflies etc.., ruler, glitter pens etc., glue

 Red velvet paper and butter paper for the cap.

Stock paper for bookmarks

Cutout the circle for the sun leaving the right side of folded yellow card intact. Children could use the punched round bits for eyes. Once the face is ready with cap in place, make a slit on the card just enough for the face to slip through and stick the inside part neatly to make a pouch/ holder for the bookmarks.

Take care while applying the glue to the edges of the inner part of the yellow card.

Start sticking the stems and flowers and other stuff. The stem can easily cover the paper cut that shows.

The smiling sun seems to be happy with the lovely garden!

 This is how it can look when we flip the face. Try making a different layout instead of the garden.


Decorate the bookmarks and slip them in! Don't forget to fill in your name!!!! :)


Write different messages on the bookmarks, to make the special!!


Lovely, isn't it?!


I'm sure everybody will enjoy making it as much as we did!
Thanks for viewing! Best wishes from all of us!

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!
