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.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!


Easy step by step drawings are always a favorite in my class. Since we chose tailor bird this week I needed to present a step by step instruction as well.

So here we are with 'a not a very easy step by step drawing', according to my 1st graders :)
And a few photos of the common tailor birds  visiting our yard.

Such cute birds aren't they :)

Below are artworks made by the children:

Well, I'm sure we'll post more tailor bird artworks shortly as I see them coming...

Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
