Paper Animals

We made these exciting paper animals as we were reading animal stories during our winter holidays.

We drew animal faces/heads, bodies and tails on a sheet of paper. We used colored pencils for filling in colors and patterns. After cutting them out we folded the body in half so that it can be placed upright or in a standing position. We then glued the head and tail in place.

 The children enjoyed making more animals like bears, rabbits and hippos. Some of them decided to make a zoo out of cardboard boxes to place their animals.










Have fun making these easy foldable animals. We did not think of looking for templates before we started with this activity. I'll try to create some and post them here.

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!
