Revolving chair made of cardboard - Think-Pick-Create Project

Another TPC project during August was to make something out of random stuff and left overs from other projects. We had a good amount of cardboard corners, cardboard bits, felt, cardboard rolls, paints and adhesive.

Made by Adrija, grade 3
We got these cardboard corners with a huge cardboard box and other packing material which came with our furniture purchase recently.



One of the eight year olds wanted to create a revolving chair + she wanted to ROTATE!!! :)


Thinking of rotating...an idea struck me and I found the cardboard rolls useful once again. We needed two cardboard tubes rolls with a difference of about 3mm in the diameter. ( cardboard rolls that come with aluminium foil and the toilet rolls can also be used). The thicker one was cut to length and glued to the base. We used the piece of (mobile phone) packing foam for the base. We could also use a cardboard instead.



The smaller one was glued to the base of the chair. Once dry just slide them in together and rotate chair!! Voila!!!
It makes a great add on to a child's doll house collection.

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. The making of the Colosseum model using cardboard and paints.



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!
