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 :)

Thanks for viewing and enjoy creating! Do post your car 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!


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!
