Craft foam pencil toppers

These pencil toppers make awesome gifts in my class.

 Easy to make and decorate, these pencil toppers also make a good party craft.

Craft foam was cut into 1 inch strips and then into bits roughly measuring the circumference of the pencil. It is always better to make a sample to make sure that it stays firmly on the pencil edge. Once the bits are ready, start sticking them while they are rolled onto the pencil using a glue gun - adult help required. The shapes required can be cutout or punched. The cutouts were glued using glue gun again and added some embellishments. Children can use acrylic paint, foam bits, glitter glue or sharpies to decorate as they prefer :)





































Enjoy making these lovely pencil toppers and explore more ideas using craft foam :)

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!
