I want to make a rocket today

'Today I'm going to make a rocket' said, Shrehan and he sat down ready to start making one!!! Although we were about to continue with the on going fairyland project (during the last week of January), we decided to find some material digging into our recyclable stuff.

He settled down with a long cardboard roll and needed help with the sticking!
He chose colors and painted it meticulously!  Look at the flag colored trails he has used at the bottom!! He explains that he remembered the trails of colored smoke during the spectacular flypast on the Republic day!

It looks GREAT! Isn't it?! Amazing work for a 5+ year old!!

 We used a long cardboard roll (foil paper cardboard roll), some card stock, tri-color crepe paper for the smoke trails, paints and glue.

Enjoy creating things you like :)

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!


Easy step by step drawings are always a favorite in my class. Since we chose tailor bird this week I needed to present a step by step instruction as well.

So here we are with 'a not a very easy step by step drawing', according to my 1st graders :)
And a few photos of the common tailor birds  visiting our yard.

Such cute birds aren't they :)

Below are artworks made by the children:

Well, I'm sure we'll post more tailor bird artworks shortly as I see them coming...

Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
