FLOWER VASE OUT OF PLASTIC BOTTLE


Easy activity reusing plastic bottles. They can also make great mother's day gifts!


Step one is to wash and dry the plastic bottles. 
Draw a line all the way around the bottle using a felt pen before cutting. 
A sharp cutter is required for cutting thick plastic bottles like fabric softener and shampoo bottles. 
To speed up the process, the blade can be slightly heated before cutting. 
If filing the cut edges is difficult, simply use a colourful duct tape to stick over and around the rough edges. So now the bottles are ready to be given to children for painting and decorating! 

Acrylic paints, including the metallic versions were used to paint patterns and other designs. Paper cutouts (using pattern punches) and 3D glitter outliners also work very well to embellish. 


As always, I love to provide a variety of stuff to decorate and watch the magic happen :) There is so much satisfaction in creating what we like!

We'll also post flower making ideas. We had so much fun making those beautiful flowers and hope to share that soon.

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. The making of the Colosseum model using cardboard and paints.



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!
