MAKING GOODY BAGS OUT OF CARDBOARD

We made Christmas goody bags using cardboard and foam handles! Yes, they really turned out lovely and everybody loved them!




































The design looks simple, yet requires effort in cutting and sticking and was a major job for me :)
We used up a whole lot of our cardboard collection to cut out equal semi circles.
Broad strips of brown paper were used to stick the semi circles together which is the most tricky part.
Pastel sheets or card stock was used to cover both the sides for color.
Every child got to choose the the bag color, handles and the decorations / embellishments.
We cut out the foam sheets into strips about one inch, for the fancy handles! The handles were stuck onto the cardboard using hot glue, which was my job again!

Well, the children came up with stunning ideas using the cutouts et al and it was great watching them decorate their bags!
The bags were ready and lined up!!!They all looked GORGEOUS!!!
Now the last step was left to Santa to finish. :))

Happy creating everyone! Thanks for viewing!

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!
