Cardboard Houses

Making houses using cardboard boxes is an all time favorite. This time we started collecting big and small cardboard boxes. Out of the big boxes we could cut out the base for our creations. The smaller boxes were used to make the houses. Once again going by everybody's choice we finally had houses in various shapes and sizes. Some had round windows placed at odd spots on the walls and some had too many windows!

Devyani loves the color orange and here we have the yard painted in orange :)

While talking about our cardboard creations, we also discussed how everybody manages to take care of their work once they install them in their homes. Most of them prefer to keep them displayed in their rooms. Some of them also expressed their concerns regarding space to store their creations. And so we wondered if we could create a foldable doll house out of cardboard, which can be put away after playtime.

We were very excited and thankful to come across this wonderful idea here Easy to make cardboard doll house

Here are our gorgeous doll houses. I love how the children decorated them!!!






It was also heartwarming to find out that one of the third graders decided to make a doll house for her baby sister :))

Happy creating. Just enjoy making new things!!

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!
