Spray painting with autumn colours

Spray painting using toothbrushes is a lovely activity. To start with we collected a few dry leaves and twigs in various shapes and sizes from the yard. Children placed them in their desired patterns on a4 size sheets and chose colours similar to our leaves and twigs collection!

Here are some of the finished works:




























 

After spraying the required amount of paint the twigs and leaves are removed carefully and the artworks were left to dry.














 It is a great idea for birthday cards, invites, tags,bookmarks and more! Makes a wonderful nature inspired activity for grades 1 and 2 and a family fun weekend activity!  

Happy creating and thanks for viewing :)

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!
