Fun having a Spooky tree in our classroom!

The Spooky tree was on top priority and we are so happy to have it up finally, just in time for Halloween!

I used about four large sheets of black pastel paper and yellow cut outs for eyes and mouth. A double sided tape or any strong sticky tape can be used to stick it up on the wall. We had done the same with our Nature Tree  and how we created it !

Now we have some cool spooky beings visiting the tree! Some are here to stay and some might fly away!! We reused waste paper to make those snakes, monsters etc., and they turn out really great!

Probably a little tweaking would help make the branches spread out better.
Right now we love it and we find more spooky guys joining the gang :)

While this new tree in the room was keeping us busy, here are some nice artworks by the first and second graders:

Wishing all a Happy Halloween!
Have a blast :)

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.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.

I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!


Children have been exploring 'Madhubani' painting and drawing techniques during the September and October sessions and have come up with some excellent artworks. Here are a few of them and more in the making....

Enjoy creating them and share with us!
