Make a tree using twigs and leaves -Think-Pick-Create projects

After explaining briefly about the topic, let the children choose a colored sheet or cardstock paper / pastel sheet, before they decide on what they want to pick from the yard.

One of our think-pick-create activity we chose during August, was to make a tree using twigs, sticks, leaves and other material that we could collect from the yard. Children chose twigs and leaves keeping in mind what they plan to create once they are back into their room. It was remarkable to make a note of the collection each one had in about 5 minutes! 8 out 10 children were sure about what they were going to create.

Here are the finished artworks on display!

It was a wonderful experience, especially when the children expressed their understanding of parts of the tree. Splendid creativity and outstanding ideas!!!

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!
