DIWALI CARD MAKING

Wishing all of you a very Happy Diwali! We made many cards for Diwali this time and here is one our favourite pop-up card. This is easy and fun to make. We enjoyed making these and hope you would like try as well. You may also like to view our Diwali paper lanterns.



We will need two card stock papers or pastel sheets, colourful cut outs, festive themed stickers, cut outs of diyas and flames, cut out for candles and flames and some PVA glue.

We chose red and orange pastel sheets as shown. We cut three blocks on the orange card. Two blocks with an approx. width of one inch and one block at the bottom of one cm approx. Avoid making very deep cuts as the folds tend to protrude out of the card. The first two blocks are for the text ' Happy Diwali'. The last one is for the candles.
 Push the cut blocks inwards before pasting inside the second card. The orange one goes into the red card. Take care not to stick the folded blocks.



It should look like this when the card is open.

We used markers to trace the letters written with a pencil. Stick the candles as shown.The candles were ready before sticking them finally.

Stick the diya with flame onto the cover and the embellishments.

Here below we have some super gorgeous cards made by our second and third graders :)

They all turned out so beautiful :)

We loved them all!
Thank you for viewing our creations and wishing you a very Happy Diwali!

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!
