Stamping and coloring activity

Recently I came across a set of rubber stamps that were almost forgotten. The birds themed stamps that I have contain a set of recognizable birds. It felt great! So here is a wonderful activity for our kindergarten children, I announce. 'And hey! Why not us?', said the others! And so we had more curious participants who joined us and enjoyed stamping and coloring.

I noticed that it turned out to be a very useful learning activity:

  • It helps children learn left and right positions on a page
  • Placement of images so they aren't upside down
  • It exercises their dexterity skills
  • The amount of pressure to apply so the images don't smudge
  • They need to try out before they actually do the final stamps

Happy stamping! It sure is a wonderful activity to include and try out other themes like vehicles or animals.

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!
