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!

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!
