Making mobile phones using cardboard


With a keen interest to recycle and reuse cardboard, we collect a lot of cardboard boxes and enjoy making a whole lot of things throughout the year. We don't seem to be able to post all of them in spite of all the reminders we get from the parents and our well wishers! Nevertheless we plan to work on sharing more frequently!

Recently I came across this lovely fun idea on pinterest : A little cardboard mobile phone
Since we were making things for Valentines Day, I wondered if everyone would like to make a cardboard mobile phone as a gift or a fun pretend play idea :)

I handed them the cardboard cut outs, poster paints, black markers and the results were simply AMAZING!!!!!
Most of the children used poster paints and black markers for writing and outlining their designs while a few of them tried using wax crayons -as seen on the third one from the top.










The children also made psps and ipods!!! And some of them requested for bigger cardboard pieces to make ipads and more!!! Whats more they decided to create their own brands and designs, while the others made some for their siblings and cousins!!!

  1. Hello.

    Nice idea.

    How did you paint the cardboard? Markers or paint?

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!
