How to make a Dino Hand puppet


The 6 to 8 year olds had fun making hand puppets using toothpaste and foil cartons. The shorter ones turned out to be good for the dino, dragon, hippos and the like. While the longer ones were good for alligators or crocodiles, to show off the long snout. The smaller ones were better for the younger children as they found it difficult to handle the long cartons. 

Here's what we find:
  • Easy to make craft with a little help with cutting etc., if the child requires.
  • Good for show and tell or puppet show
  • We'll need empty toothpaste carton, one sheet of white paper, pink paper for the tongue , black marker, a set of googly eyes, paints and glue
  • Use sellotape to secure the fold, to avoid ripping off accidentally
  • Slide fingers into the open slits behind 
  • Go do the crunch crunch

Enjoy and have fun!

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!
