Make an easy flower vase


We will need an empty container eg: toothpaste, foil cardboard carton/box. The shapes may vary but that does not matter. We used an empty potato chips container which is cylindrical and an empty foil box, both cut into halves. Second item used is a corrugated cardboard sheet -the ones that come with packing or can be purchased. Finally we painted and decorated them to our heart's content :)

Here is how it goes:

 An empty Pringles container cut into half



 Corrugated cardboard sheet cut into strips and neatly stuck to the box, using pva glue.



The protruding edges can be cut if any.

 Can't wait to put the paper flowers in :)


Painted using metallic acrylic paints.

Cut out a cardboard base in a heart shape and painted it as well. Made some paper butterflies and flowers out of left over bottle bottoms!

Added embellishments with some shiny foam cut outs and flowers etc.


The rectangular vase was made using the foil carton/ box.
Finally they all looked great with the glittery stuff and all the add ons!
Have fun making these vases that are easy and can also be used as a pencil holder.

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!
