Stone painting - Fun things to make from stones and pebbles

Stone painting is always a favorite anytime craft for the children. Whether they stumble across stones in the yard or find them on a nature walk, it is a great idea to collect and transform them into something interesting and fun during the holidays!

There are a number of craft ideas like fish, monsters, birds, butterflies, flowers or a collection of a certain theme they enjoy making....and the list can go on :)

The collected or purchased stones are washed clean and dried them before painting.
The children can sketch out the details on the stone using a pencil before painting or plan the sketch on a paper.

We used acrylic paints, googly eyes and PVA glue -fevicol or craft glue to stick the eyes

As seen below we have a cute little 'Nemo' or a clown fish with those prominent strips and lovely eyes. The googly eyes are great and they do enhance such crafts.

Isn't that a cool idea by a seven year old!!! Nice one for Halloween too!

Gorgeous flowers, leaves, butterflies and lady birds! Children really enjoy painting these with their friends and groups.

Kudos to the children who came up with such amazing ideas and turned those stones into such beautiful artworks!! The above stone paintings were made by children of various age groups.

Happy painting :)

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!
