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!

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!


Children have been exploring 'Madhubani' painting and drawing techniques during the September and October sessions and have come up with some excellent artworks. Here are a few of them and more in the making....

Enjoy creating them and share with us!
