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.

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.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.



I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!
