Drawing and colouring a gecko

Drawing a house gecko in about four steps!

Children can draw the legs in the way suitable for their activity.

 We wanted to make cut outs of these geckos and so we chose to draw the legs straight to make them easy to fold. I found it helpful to give out cut outs to the younger children or beginners.

Above are the Geckos made by Rania and Shrehan. It is fine to leave the whites between the toes to make it easier to cut and they look great too!
The children drew the geckos and coloured using color pencils and finally traced the lines using black markers before cutting them out.

We folded the legs to make them stand upright. And we now have lovely geckos in many colours preparing to go home :)

We had great fun creating these and also checked out some cool gecko facts! Have you tried making a terrarium for your Geckos? Find out how to make one, here.

Enjoy making them!

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!
