CARDBOARD BOX CAR

Here is an idea to turn an empty cookie carton/box into a car.


































We used  McVitie's Hobnobs boxes. Any cardboard carton of the required size will do.The images below show the opened out carton and the base model it has to turn into.
Here is how the base model was created. 
After the required cuts and folds glue drops were used to stick the box into the required shape. 
PVA glue can be used as well.

The body, windows and wheels were painted using basic acrylic paints. A white card stock/ thick paper was used to cut out the lights, number plate and alloys and the details were painted. The car was left to dry and the required outlines were traced for extra details and a finished look!


The car inspired many more cars in various colors and styles :)

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!
