Mithu and Mithi - Stories and craft making activity

The second story chosen for the reading - story telling - craft session, was 'Mithu and Mithi' by Mohini Bakshi - published in 1971.
It is a beautiful folk tale from India, about a pair of parrots called 'Mithu' and 'Mithi', who loved each other very much! A sweet tale expressing their love and friendship and how much they care for each other. The children enjoyed the story and wanted to share it with their families. They also decided to enact the tale as we read out the story aloud and watch the characters come alive!!!

After working on the book covers we also made some photo frames and pasted some parrot cutouts on them!
We'll be back with more stories as we explore new ones!

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!
