Drawing an Armadillo




In this lesson we enjoyed finding facts about the nine banded armadillos and drawing them as well. Here is how we made our armadillo in four steps.


  1. Draw a semi circle horizontally and draw the nine bands(counting two lines as one band)
  2. Draw its head, eye and ears.
  3. Make four legs with claws and a tail with bands.
  4. Make the dots on its head, on both sides of the bands and legs and spikes on the bands.


Here are a few of the beautiful armadillos made by the children :

Have fun making them as much as we did! Share with us and we'll be glad to post them here or on our FB page!

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!
