Nature Play - Springtime activities

With the schools closing for a short break during spring time, our 'nature play' group enjoyed their picnic -painting- fun get together, sharing things they do during their activity time with everyone. They had great fun with leaf printing and interesting group play ideas.
The Nature Play group had collected various leaves, flowers and petals and dried them, pasted them carefully on to their scrap books.



 How exciting it is to collect leaves, fallen petals, flowers and stuff.



We placed them in thick books to press and dry them. After that we placed those thick books under a big stack of books. After about a week, we found them nicely dry and ready to paste.




We found this nice mulberry tree growing among our trees and it is the white mulberry tree. So we talked about it a little and had fun picking and tasting the fruits. The ripe ones were a bit sticky to touch and tasted sweet. Not everybody found them tasty though.


A small fluffy white flower!!!! How beautiful!! It is the common dandelion and we have a few growing among the calendula, marigold, cinerarias and the Indian cress - Nasturtium flowers.



With such beautiful colorful flowers, breeze and birds chirping on the trees around, we decide to meet again and celebrate another spring day together.

Enjoy the weather and spend a lovely spring day with children and loved ones!
Thanks for viewing and visiting.

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!
